Suicide bombing in Islam

Written by Sheikh Atabek Shukurov Edited by Sulaiman Ahmed   The recent suicide bombing and terrorist atrocities which took a place in Manchester and London have once again provoked many of the wrong kinds of questions about Islam. Again, ordinary Muslims find themselves besieged by an increasingly emboldened right-wing media and left acutely embarrassed before…

Update on the issue of Mortgage

I am getting more and more emails, texts and questions face to face where people are interested if there was any update on the issue of mortgage. I can only confirm that Sheikh Taqi Usmani has received my first letter and the following articles and he is aware of my arguments. Also, I tried to…

Узбекистон сехрли диёр, ёхуд изсиз коронгуда ётгдан келажак.

Узбек халки илмга чанкоклиги ва тахсил куриш йулида бор-йугини курбон килишга тайёр еканлигини тарих саноксиз марта курсатди. Агар инсон тарихида номи чиккан кимсалардан унтасини зикр килсак албатта сакистаси Урта Осиё, хусусан Узбекистон китридан чикади. Худди шу илмга чанкоклик бизни замонимиздаги минглаб Узбек углонларини сафарга олиб чикарди. Уларни нургун сондаги навкиронлари чет давлатларда тахсил олишди ва…

‘Ahl al-Bait’ and infinitive challenges.

In our time we have many people who claim to be ‘Sayyed‘ and ‘Shareef‘ or ‘Sibt‘. On the other hand, there are a lot of people who genuinely belong to one of the above mentioned families but they are not aware of it. I just want to write very brief article about issues related to…

Узбекистондаги Девбандий окими

Якинда Муфти Таки Усмони ва Зафар Тахнавиларни баъзи фикрларига мулохазамни билдирганимдан сунг, Узбек уламолари ва талабаларидан бир канча мактублар олдим. Ундан ташкари, Фэсбук постларимда хам очик коммент сифатида бир канча фикр ва мулохазалар олдим. Бундан икки нарсани хулоса килдим; 1. Узбек уламо ва талабалари мени маколаларимни, видео лекцияларимни ва теле-курсатувлармни якиндан кузатиб бормокдалар. 2. Узбек…

Modern Hanafis are ‘Responding’, or Taimawites Behind the Mask

In a recent article, I spoke about a few issues where the Deobandi sect rejected so many positions of Abu Hanifa and Hanafis, for the sole purpose of supporting Ibn Taimia. Despite these previous artciles, I am going to post a few more, as Deobandis are obsessed with the opinions of Ibn Taimia in each field of Islam. Today I want to clarify a few…

Ikrima as ‘Imam’ of Modern Hanafis – Part 2

Since releasing my article on Ikrima the Liar and Kharijite, I have received a lot of positive feedback from readers who were either blissfully unaware of the genocidal propensities of some of the people that groups such as Deobandis and Salafis expect them to ‘respect’ as ‘Imams’ or had already heard about Ikrima (who narrates…

Prophet Moses, and endless insults of Prophets

While back I’ve written an article about a story where they say that Prophet Moses PBUH was running naked so his nation could see his private organs. You can read the article here; https://shaykhatabekshukurov.com/2016/05/08/the-truth-about-the-study-quran-part-2-al-maturidi-and-who-are-the-theological-modernists/ . Then I’ve written another article to clarify that Maturidi and some other scholars don’t accept the story. Please read it…

Long awaited response from Mufti Taqi Usmani

Last year, one of my students has published a statement from me about the time of three prayers ‘Maghrib, Isha and Fajr‘ when there is no time of Isha. I think readers still remember the mess that created by Drama Queens from the UK as well Canada about this issue. Then, over several days I…

Burning Gays and Beating Wives: The Abuse of Discretionary Punishment By Muslims

In light of my previous article, which clarified that there is no death penalty (nor necessarily any kind of physical punishment or incarceration) for even public and witnessed homosexuality in Islamic law, which I was compelled to release after the tragic shooting at the ‘Pulse’ nightclub in Orlando, which had caused Islamophobes and Salafists alike…

ISIS via Ibn Taymiyya and Avicenna

By Sheikh Atabek Shukurov The Prophet Muhammad PBUH was very concerned to avoid any type of ‘mess’ as much as he could. For example in order to avoid academic mess he said; ”Talk to the people on the level they can understand! Don’t let the truth which is from God and Prophet to be rejected by…
