Offering a particular world view, understanding of economics, popular trademarks, and ways of consumption, modernity compels “modern” and “isolating” sorts of relationship that ostracizes “the family” from its territories as it is the most strongest station of resistance to so called virtues of modernity. In short, modernism simply tears “the family” to shreds as masses of people that have emigrated to metropolises and undergone economic woes are now fully imprisoned by the concepts of “the nuclear family”, that is a mere euphemism of “family lost”, and a tendency of a life lead independent from “the family.” This collection of articles...

Attempts to explain the rise of Islamic fundamentalism have ranged from works which emphasize the very nature of Islam to works which emphasize poverty and underdevelopment. In his attempt to explain the rise of this phenomenon, Imady pursues a novel approach; namely, one that emphasizes institutional evolution. According to Imady, Islamic fundamentalism evolved from an earlier movement known as Islamic reform. The irony, as Imady illustrates, lies in the fact that this evolution was neither willed nor expected by the major proponents of Islamic reform. Rather, the institutions created by Muslim reformers took on a life of their own and...
A popular subject of discussion in the modern West is the relationship between religion and science. Are they inherently incompatible or can they be reconciled? In the classical Islamic civilization science and religion were considered allies against paganism and superstition. Reconciliation was not an issue between two subjects. This book advances the thesis that the myth of an incompatibility between religion and science is a myth of Western civilization, born out of its unique history. In this book, the author presents the attitudes towards science put forward in the Qur'an and the Prophetic traditions and by the great Muslim scholars...

G-d is the One Who gives guidance for success on this earth, and if we go against His guidance we will never have success. In the Qur'an, it is said “You are the One Who has directed us to our paths.” It is not one path but many paths. The path of science, the path of government, the path of culture; and then the science is broken up into many paths. The word is used in its plural, meaning “our paths” not one, but many. by Imam W. Deen Mohammed Binding: Paperback Pages: 98 Publisher: WDM Publications LLC

Over the centuries, Christianity has accomplished much which is deserving of praise. Its institutions have fed the hungry, sheltered the homeless, and advocated for the poor. Christian faith has sustained people through crisis and inspired many to work for social justice. Yet although the word "Christian" connotes goodness, the actual story is much more complex. Over the last two millennia, ruling elites have used Christian institutions and values to control those less privileged throughout the world. The doctrine of Christianity has been interpreted to justify the killing of millions, and its leaders have used their faith to sanction participation in...

The past year has been a trying one for Muslims in the United States. The steady drone of anti-Islamic sentiment, growing since the tragic events of September 11, 2001, was catalyzed by a series of unfortunate incidents.
