University of California Pr Labirint Ozon. Sarah Eltantawi. Two years later, many Nigerians supported the death sentence by stoning of a peasant woman for alleged sexual misconduct. Public outcry in the West was met with assurances to the Western public: stoning is not a part of Islam; stoning happens “only in Africa”; reports of stoning are exaggerated by Western sensationalism.
However, none of these statements are true. Shari’ah on Trial goes beyond journalistic headlines and liberal pieties to give a powerful account of how Northern Nigerians reached a point of such desperation that they demanded the return of the strictest possible shari’ah law. Sarah Eltantawi analyzes changing conceptions of Islamic theology and practice as well as Muslim and British interactions dating back to the colonial period to explain the resurgence of shari’ah, with implications for Muslim-majority countries around the world.

Journal of Islamic Studies 31 2 This paper discusses the dating of the Muslim conquest of the southern Iraqi port city of al-Ubulla. Arab historians give two conflicting accounts of the event: one puts it in the year 14 ah; the other in the year 16 ah. Modern scholars for their part have made no serious attempt to reconcile the two accounts.
They have linked the disagreement with the traditional rivalry between Basran and Kufan historians and, generally, tended to prefer the latter account. This paper takes a different approach to the issue. It rejects the interpretation of the disagreement given by modern scholars and, instead, reconciles the two accounts through close examination of other aspects of the Ubulla conquest.
This conclusion puts us in a good position, first, to reconcile other disagreements on the sequence of events regarding the conquest of southern Iraq and, secondly, to draw some judgments as to the tribal identity of the Muslim troops who implemented that conquest and established the garrison city of Basra.
In this short paper, I take a quick look at a few incidents of and reactions to plague and pestilence in pre-modern Islamic history. Everything that Muslims did in the past is not sacred, but it is profoundly human, and like us they were grappling with Islam, the will of God, and a developing tradition that we too have inherited even if their understandings and interpretations of events were not always the same as ours. At times, they even attributed the emergence of such diseases to pricks from evil Jinn.
The science may have been wrong or at least different from today , but ultimately many minds worked to make sense of the phenomena, even as the belief that it was contingent on the will of Allah prevailed. Finding an etiology and accepting the power of Allah are not mutually exclusive.

The student came to see me to seek clarification on what her mother had told her about engaging contextually with classical Islamic jurisprudential views and whether the views of classical Islamic jurists are divine and can never be reviewed and possibly changed. She said her mother was of the erroneous view that it is not allowed at all to question or seek to contextually understand the jurisprudential views of classical Islamic jurists as contained in the classical jurisprudential books of Islamic law and that doing so could lead a Muslim to lose his or her religious faith!
It is worrying that the erroneous view that the jurisprudential views of the classical Islamic jurists are divine and cannot change at all is quite widespread, particularly amongst lay persons mostly in the Muslim world. This is reflected in the Fiqh of the established jurisprudential schools under Islamic law today. The need for human interpretation of the sources is very well acknowledged in both classical and contemporary works on Islamic jurisprudence.
Professor Bernard Weiss , p. The distinction between law and its sources is carefully maintained in Islamic jurisprudence.

I don’t mean to bother you but this is disturbing my mind and I need an educated explanation. I was at a Muslim Sister’s Fashion Show predominately African American sisters when during casual conversation a young sister mid 20s stated that her husband is Christian. This as you can image created quite a stir. She was immediately verbally attacked.
She tried to defend herself by saying that he did not prohibit her from practicing Islam and he has agreed that the children will be Muslim. She was advised to divorce him. I don’t know if they were married and she converted or if she was already Muslim when they married. She was under such a heavy attack that I could not get that question in. However this issue is one that I need to understand because I can’t adequately explain why there is a prohibition for the Muslim female in marrying from the people of the book and there is no prohibition for the Muslim male.
The sexy cleric is ascendant. A chic oppressor, he is either a saint or a sadist. He may have transcended the need for sex, but the sight of his obscured face, as he pontificates from the Vatican balcony—or the appearance of his likeness, or even the suggestion of his likeness—is enough to make his followers swoon. Who could be more attractive than someone who has sworn off doing it? The secular has left us with no rules to break and, therefore, no more thrills to gain.

Most of the buildings of these periods are of stone; in fact the general feeling conveyed by medieval Cairene architecture is that of a sombre stolidity. This is reflected in the various forms of architectural decoration. Of particular interest are the massive carved masonry domes, the rich polychrome marble inlays and painted ceilings. The somewhat severe beauty of this architecture is frequently lightened by the exquisitely carved and inlaid wood-work of doors and minbars.
