Islam and the Position of Women

Islam and the Position of Women
The West's vociferous partisans of Women's Lib. have no idea of the revolutionary leap forward in women's position which Islam brought about. In the days of Islam's first appearance the position of women was that of chattels of the men - little above the domesticated animals. Yet the West, for all their vaunted freedom, have added nothing to what Islam gave to women, except liberty for increased corruption and licentiousness. Islam prohibits ...

Natural Therapeutics of Medicine in Islam

Natural Therapeutics of Medicine in Islam

Islam, Postmodernity and Freedom

Islam, Postmodernity and Freedom
(1) What is post-modernism? Does it have a universal definition? A question asking for any definition that is universal implies the existence of an essential quality that transcends local context. This would according to the postmodern dogma constitute an unforgivable sin. The primary moral agenda behind postmodern attempts to destabilize the foundations of modern knowledge and modern ethics is to challenge essential theorizing claiming ...

The persistence of the logic of war Ever since the fall of the Soviet Union, it is true that some Western analysts continued to ask themselves, “After Communism, who will be the West’s enemy?” This as if the “end of one war”, in this case the Cold War, would just be an opportunity to spark another, or, in philosophical terms, as if the West’s “I” could only affirm itself through the negation of the ...

The Influence of Islamic Philosophy and Ethics on The Development of Medicine During the Islamic Renaissance

The Influence of Islamic Philosophy and Ethics on The Development of Medicine During the Islamic Renaissance
I - Islam and the Promotion of Science As the Moslems challenged the civilized world at that time, they preserved the cultures of the conquered countries . On the other hand, when the Islamic Empire became weak, most of the Islamic contributions in art and science were destroyed.
