The Justice of Islamic Law

The Supreme Court of Canada has ruled recently in favor of upholding a Quebec law which states that there is no support for common law partners upon separation. The ruling came as a result of a vote between 9 judges, with 5 in favor of upholding the rule and 4 against. The significance of this ruling lies at the foundation of its legal framework, which is that man is the source of legislation. This case begins with the notion that sexual relationships outside of marriage are normal, which, as a result, require the courts to deal with the consequences of breakups in such relationships. It is naturally expected that justice results from any governing system, especially at the judicial level. This recent case provides a startling example of how laws are struck down or upheld by a mere vote.  The Supreme Court decision goes to show how man-made legislation can vary with profound implications on a major social pillar of society, the family, simply as a result of a difference of op

Tafsir Al Quran: Surat Al Qalam (The Pen) - Sheikh Abu Talha (Part 1/6)

Part 1/6: Sheikh Abu Talha expounds on Surat Al Qalam (Chapter of The Pen).  At a time when the western world has increased their attacks, slander, libel and insults against Islam, Prophet Mohammed (SAW), the Quran, Hijab and other Islamic symbols this surah describes how these insults and acts against the honor of Islam are not new and the Quran takes us back into time when Prophet Mohammed (SAW) faced similar situations in Makkah and how Allah (SWT) answered the kuffar by the Quran and defended His Prophet.  Abu Talha explains the social environment of Makkah and the greater Arabia during the time this surah was revealed to Prophet Mohammed (SAW) & compares it with the current socio-political situation in the world, especially in the Muslim world.

PART 2: Which non-Muslims can become dhimmi and what are the conditions of the Jizya?

1. Who are the Ahl-ul-Harb (people of war) from whom the giving of the Jizyah is accepted with the meaning of convening the 'Aqd of Dhimmah with them and the cessation of the state of war with them following on from that? There are a number of points of view amongst the Fuqahaa in regards to whom from the disbelievers it is permitted to contract the 'Aqd of Dhimmah with and we will summarise the most significant of these views as follows: 1) The Hanafi Madh'hab The following came within the text of 'Tuhfat-ul-Fuqahaa':  "The taking of the Jizyah and the contract of the Dhimmah is legitimate in respect to all of the disbelievers except for the apostates from the Arab Mushrikeen as the Jizyah is not accepted from them"  (Tuhfat-ul-Fuqahaa, As-Samarqandiy 526/3. Refer to Badaa'i As-Sanaa'i 110-111/7, Fat'h-ul-Qadeer 49/6 and the Haashiyah of Ibn 'Aabideen 414/3). 2) The Maaliki Madh'hab, Al-Awzaa'iy and the Fuqahaa of Ash

Islamic Social System Vs Secular Social System - Shaykh Abu Talha

Islamic Social System Vs Secular Social System - Shaykh Abu Talha in his unique style presents this informative lecture about the Islamic Social System. During the course of his discussion, he points out the common social behaviors in the current secular societies and demonstrates how closely they resemble the social behaviors and the social system of the Pre-Islamic jahiliyyah (ignorance) period of Arabia. He explains how the Islamic Social System is well balanced and prescribed as a way of life given to mankind by their Creator and how Islam can solve innumerable social problems afflicting the human race. He emphasized how the Islamic Social System when implemented along with its counterpart systems of Economics, Judiciary & Politics from Islam can bring about an atmosphere of balance and justice promoting real progress in both moral, spiritual and scientific aspects of human development as was practically demonstrated by 1300 years of the history of Islam where the Islamic Syste

Egypt's President Morsi is the New American Stalwart in the Region

بسم الله الرحمن الرحيم Egypt's President Morsi is the New American Stalwart in the Region Ever since assuming the office of the Presidency, Morsi has worked resolutely to portray himself as a moderate Islamist working independent of American influence for the betterment of Egypt and the region. But beneath the veneer of Islamic rhetoric surrounding his domestic and foreign policy actions, Morsi is no better than his predecessor Mubarak- the former gatekeeper of American interests in the region. On the domestic front, Morsi can claim that the opposition has not allowed his government enough time to push through reforms that will address the Egypt's battered economy, restore law and order, and improve the lives of the ordinary Egyptian people. This is despite the fact that such reforms are formulated under the auspices of IMF stipulations for Egypt's government to revise its economic agenda in order to qualify for the $4.8 billion loan. IMF spokesman Gerry Rice sa

BOOK: "The Responsibility of the Ruler and the Ruled"

Download the book from  here . The women members' of Hizb ut Tahrir Wilayah Pakistan have written this book which seeks to clarify the relationship between the Ruler and Ruled and its importance in maintaining a strong Khilafah, which is to come soon inshaAllah. It covers the basic concept of what a Muslim is responsible for and then more specifically the Ruler's responsibility to his people and the people's responsibility to the Ruler. When the Khilafah returns, the Ummah must cling to this understanding with its teeth, to prevent a recurrence of all the suffering it faced due to the absence of Islam. The book then elaborates on how the current rulers in the the Muslim nations, who demand the obedience of their people are not legitimate Rulers of the Ummah from Islam. They were not contracted legitimately by a Bayah through consent and choice, for the implementation of Islam. They have usurped the position of the legitimate Ruler of the Muslims. They are oppressors

PART 1: What is Jizyah?

The payment of the Jizyah and the acceptance of the non-Muslims from the people of war to submit to the rulings of Islaam Introduction What concerns us in this section is whether the payment of the Jizyah from the people at war and their commitment to submitting to the rulings of Islaam, is considered a cause from amongst the causes for the cessation of fighting according to Islaam. As such the issues that are dealt with in this section are only studied from this angle i.e. the angle of the cessation of the Qitaal if the contract of Dhimmah with the people of war is completed, a matter that dictates their payment of the Jizyah and their submission to the rule of Islaam, meaning their entry into being Islamic subjects and henceforth carrying the citizenship of the Islamic State. As such we will not delve into the issues that enter into the subject of the Jizyah as this would require an independent paper in itself and in addition it would distract us from the purpose for whic
