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. This is completely rejected by our deen. Mawlana Ashraf Ali Thanawi, for example, compiled the famous work Bahishti Zewar and aimed it particularly toward women. The comprehensiveness of the book suggests it is a work that ought to live on the bookshelf of every home and used as a guidance for every aspect of a woman’s (and indeed her family’s) life. Indeed, such is the usefulness of the book that it is not uncommon to find muftis using Bahishti Zewar as a reference point nowadays.
The news of the passing of Maulana Saleemullah Khan (RA) has reached us with great regret and sadness. He (RA) was the teacher of many great Scholars such as (Mufti) Taqi Usmani (DB). Death of a Scholar is a calamity in its own right but passing away of a great personality such as Maulana Saleemullah Khan (RA) is an irreplaceable loss to the Muslim Ummah. He (RA) spent close to a century serving Islamic sciences and Islam. We make Dua for Allah Ta’ala to forgive his sins and grant him the paradise (Ameen).

Aleppo Burning!

We subscribe to pluralism and peaceful coexistence and acknowledge the freedom and rights of every individual or community or race to believe as they choose to believe without coercion, fear and intimidation. Therefore, we unequivocally condemn the brutal killings of civilians in Syria. The harm to them is unbearable and must stop. We reflect the sentiments of Andrew Mitchell, a Conservative MP who co-chairs the parliamentary Friends of Syria, “The house should urgently discuss not ‘something must be done’, but ‘what in the name of humanity we, the international community, will do to save those who today are in such dreadful jeopardy."

Brexit or Remain?

We have taken the time to analyse some of the “facts” being presented by both sides of the campaign. It is our opinion that Muslims in Britain should utilise their right to vote on the 23rd of June and back the “Remain” campaign. Those who may not have the time to conduct a thorough research on the topic are advised to look at the backers of both campaign. The far right wishes for Europe to become more protectionist and insular but it is in our best interest to be more accommodating, unbiased, unprejudiced and to remain together. We respect the right of others who may disagree with us and back "Brexit", it is their democratic right.
