Introduction A morbid fascination with the occult doesn’t seem to be limited to a particular society or civilisation. For some sections of the Muslim Ummah, the ‘supernatural’ occupies a place quite centre stage, at times with a perception that the ills of society are at root caused by the presence and activities of those practising Siḥr – magic. Consequently, the view often regurgitated is that the practitioners of magic
Executive Summary The very essence of Islam is the testimony that there is no god or deity except Allah and that the Prophet Muḥammad (peace and blessings be upon him and his family) is the Messenger of Allah. It is the root of faith (al-‘Imān) from which other branches are built upon. There is no pantheon of gods and goddesses; there are no demi-gods, semi-divine beings and there is
The companions of the Messenger of Allah (peace be upon him), the Ṣaḥābah, hold a truly special place in the history of Islam. Whether one considers the most famous of them or even those that are perhaps less well known, their steadfastness, sacrifice, commitment and devotion is truly unparalleled.

On the day of ‘Arafah it is worth reminding ourselves of what the Prophet Muḥammad (peace be upon him) mentioned this very day, which was also the day of his farewell pilgrimage. While the contents of the sermon he (peace be upon him) gave at the farewell pilgrimage are oft-repeated, how often is
An in-depth study into the very root origins of Islam, the essential nature of Tawheed (monotheism). Coupled with that it tackles head on not only the age old problem concerning the precise nature of worship and shirk (polytheism) but how these topics corresponds to the contemporary issue like ruling, governance and allegiance. Liberated from confused ill-disciplined divisions, primacy is given to the original sources, challenging many of the phantasms which plagued Islamic thought for far too long.
Introduction ‘Anyone who practices medicine but is not known as a practitioner, and injures a person or inflicts harm on him, will be held liable.’ This statement, purportedly referred to as a Prophetic ḥadith has been circulated widely of late. Several have asked about where it has been reported as well as its authenticity. Against the backdrop of society becoming one of an increasing medical tyranny, it is not a
Introduction With several mosques, particularly in London, closing their doors despite any government injunction to do so, several questions have been raised about the viability of convening Friday congregational prayers, Jummah, in other locations. Many have also reluctantly now begun to acknowledge that the various restrictions imposed by government, legal and advisory, are not going to be rescinded any time soon. Indeed, ministers and paid government ‘scientists’ have consistently stated
Belief in Prophethood is one of the central tenets of the Islamic faith (al-‘Imān) and there are many facets to this. At its root though, is the idea that revelation and guidance sent from Allah is conveyed via the medium of human beings. Prophethood is carried by mortals; no Prophet or Messenger of Allah is regarded as being divine, semi-divine or angelic. In Islam to believe so, would in fact
