Sharia Prohibits Peaceful Agreements with the Jewish entity

Making peaceful agreement with the Jewish entity has been debated amongst the Ummah for long since its inception.

In reality, Islamic Sharia forbids having any agreement […]

Social Media Policing will Not Counter the Fundamental Failures of Democracies and Authoritarian Regimes around the world

You Tube declared this week that, “Any content that includes claims about Covid-19 vaccinations that contradict expert consensus from local health authorities or the World Health Organization (WHO) will be removed from YouTube.” This follows a similar policy from Facebook, which, “the majority of journalists” claim to be “the biggest spreader of disinformation” about the […]

In our era, devotion to family affairs, parenting, studies, career, business or trade comes before devotion to our Islamic duties towards the Islamic community (jamaa’ah) and the Deen. Such shortcoming is costly at a time that the oppression upon the Islamic Ummah has reached an all-time high. It seems as if the rulers of the […]

America is About to Fall, and the Establishment of the Khilafah has Become an Expected Reality in the West

The story of the West’s colonization of this Ummah extends over a century ago, and although it was able to occupy it, it could not consolidate its occupation of it, as it remains imposed and rejected. And as a result of this imposition and rejection, the Islamic Ummah has survived those tragic situations that we […]

Nationalism is the Driving Force of Bloody Balkanization in Muslim Lands

What happened in Srebrenica during the Bosnian war, which resulted in a popular political term of “Balkanization”, was a dark stain in the history of modern politics. The delegitimization of the leadership of the Communist-Socialist regimes impacted Yugoslavia’s internal politics in the early 1990s. Yugoslavia was then divided into several countries: Slovenia, Croatia, Bosnia and […]
