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…

Islamic Law, Homosexuality and the ‘Pulse’ Massacre

A Recently we met ‘Ikrima the Liar’ in the incident of the Governor of Punjab and his killer. I spoke about the Islamic verdict on non-Muslims insulting the Prophet PBUH in a Muslim land.

Ikrima as ”Imam” of Modern Hanafis

The Truth About The Study Quran: Part 1: The ‘Quransploitation Industry’

Written by  Shaykh Atabek Shukurov and Sulaiman Ahmed The recent controversy over the release of ‘The Study Quran’ by Sayed Hossein Nasr and his team has really shown Muslims at their worst – both in their academic incompetence and in their readiness to anathematise and declare Nasr and others heretics and unbelievers based on the…

Islamic Blasphemy Laws and the Strange Case of Mumtaz Qadiri – Part 1

Shaykh Atabek Shukurov & Sulaiman Ahmed I often look at the online fatwas and talks of Islamic ‘scholars’ and wonder if perhaps they are deliberately trying to arm Islamophobes or to further garner harassment and vilification for Muslims with their bizarre pronouncements.
