  • Shia à Luz do Alcorão e do Hadith
    by: Syed Hassan Bokhari


    O conceito da palavra “shia” como encontrado no Alcorão e nas Tradições Proféticas.

    *****

    O conceito de Shi'a foi pela primeira vez propagado por Hadhrath Nuh (a.s.). Os seguidores da sua senda foram referidos como Shi'a. Isso é claro pelo fato de que Allah, quando se referindo a Hadhrath Ibrahim (a.s.), diz que este estava seguindo a religião de Hadhrath Nuh (a.s.).

    Nós lemos na Surata As Sáfat (37:83):

    "Certamente Ibrahim (Abraão) era um Shi'a de Nuh (Noé)".

  • How I became a Muslim
    by: Sister Diana Beatty

    By Sister Diana Beatty
    In the Name of Allah, most Compassionate, most Merciful

    I was raised in a moderately Christian home in Colorado. Religion was never much of an issue in my house. My father was raised as a Mormon, my mother as a Protestant. I can remember my parents dropping my brother off at Sunday School, but instead of going to church while we were in religious classes, they would go home.

  • Book Review : Whose Justice? Which Rationality? by Alasdair MacIntyre
    by: Dr. Muhammad Legenhausen

    One of the most important issues in Islamic social and political thought since the nineteenth century has been the confrontation of traditional Muslim societies with European modernism, and one of the most important facets of modernism about which Muslim thinkers are concerned is that of political liberalism. MacIntyre's writings are interesting in this context because, like many Muslims, he is very strongly opposed to many aspects of modernism and liberalism for what turn out to be ultimately religious reasons.
