Your Body and Your Soul

It is impor­tant to under­stand that humans are com­posed of out­er phys­i­cal bod­ies and inner spir­it (Rouh). The out­er shell (body) is com­posed of mate­ri­als from this earth while the inner spir­it (Rouh) is not from ele­ments of this earth rather from the com­mand of Allah (SWT).

Colonised Muslim Minds

Mus­lims cre­at­ed civ­i­liza­tions that pro­ject­ed this beau­ty, from the acoustic bal­ance and per­fec­tion in the Sul­tan Ahmet mosque, to the melodies of the Andalu­sian muwashshaḥ (form of poet­ic litany).

Muslim Women

There are many extremes in this. For exam­ple, some peo­ple believe that women should not be edu­cat­ed at all; that they should be kept com­plete­ly igno­rant so that they don’t know any­thing beyond the basics of their faith.

Actu­al­ly, the women’s lib­er­a­tion move­ment was not begun by women, but was revealed by God to a man in the sev­enth cen­tu­ry by the name of Muham­mad, may the mer­cy and bless­ings of God be upon him, the last Prophet of God. The Quran and the Sun­nah of the Prophet are the sources from which every Mus­lim woman derives her rights and duties.
