Calling for a Muslim World Reconciliation Summit

This is no ordinary conference but a wakeup call for all those who care about the future of humanity. This past May, in the first high profile international conference I raised an alarm about what I perceive as "Islamic Meltdown", the depopulation of the MENAregion where more than 4 million people have already perished in recent wars. Today, the Russians and the Americans, the French and the British areall united in bombing the cradle of our civilization where for centuries mosques and churches,... view more


Special Address at the International Conference on: Reconfiguring Interfaith and Intra-faith Understanding

Dr Abdulaziz Othman Altwaijri

The theme of interfaith dialogue takes on growing importance in the context of the international efforts towards promoting a culture of peace and fostering tolerance and coexistence among nations and peoples. These efforts ultimately seek to set up the bases of global peace through settling conflicts, resolving crises and defusing heightened tensions in the sphere of international relations. Intercultural dialogue leading to the alliance of civilizations is the solid base of interfaith dialogue... view more

Calling for a new dialogue between Islam and Christianity

Dr. Rashid Shaz

As a Muslim I am rather perplexed to enter into a formal dialogue with Christians. For a Muslim-Christian dialogue entails that the representatives of Muhammad and Jesus find themselves on the opposing sides of the table. As a Muslim who believes both in Jesus and Muhammad, one and at the same time, and who belongs to both the camps, it is not possible for me to speak for Muhammad alone and yet remain a Muslim. Today, when I stand here presumably to represent the Muslim side, I want to make it c... view more


Saudi-Iranian Relations: A Troubled Trajectory

Awadh Al-Badi

John F. Kennedy once addressed the Canadian Parliament: "Geography has made us neighbors. History has made us friends. Economics has made us partners, and necessity has made us allies. Those whom God has so joined together, let no man put asunder."1Perhaps this sagacity is the right prescription for the long-sought perpetual peace between neighbors, but alas, it does not hold in the Middle East, where Saudi Arabia and Iran represent important centers of power. Geography has made the two cou... view more

A Report on Women Madrasa Graduates: Aspirations & Roadblocks

Dr Kausar Fatima

As an insider and a graduate from one of the prestigious female-only madrasa, the researcher began her work with no unfounded assumption but rather with a strong feeling that there were some serious flows in the madrasa system. It was in fact the personal predicament of the researcher that led her to take up this issue for research. However, in my new role as a social scientist I knew that mere strong feelings or personal experiences were not enough ground to come to any conclusion. Hence my per... view more

Muslim Ummah: Framing a Rational and Humane Agenda

Maqbool Ahmed Siraj

Muslims constitute about 23% population of the world. They rule themselves in 56 countries which are member-states of the OIC. Around one-third of them inhabit several major countries of the world as religious minorities but as full citizens. While the world has heard much of "Islam means Peace" rhetoric in recent years, peace eludes the Muslims and the Muslim world the most. Bulk of the disquieting news emanates from the Muslim world. Think of war, refugees, displacement of people, coups, s... view more
