The Hijab and The Muslim Woman

Tuesday 17 Jul, 2007

The Islamic revival symbolized by the current resurgence of the hijab is often considered as an attempt of Arab Muslims to restore their pride and identity which have been repeatedly undermined by colonization and economic retardation. Man has always had a conservative tendency and reacts against which is new and unfamiliar without realizing whether it is good or bad for him.

Tacitus’ Fragment 2: The Anti-Roman Movement of the Christiani and the Nazoreans

6 / 24 / 07 - In the well-known section of Annales 15.44, Tacitus refers unmistakably to "Christiani." We shall presently take a fresh look at another passage thought to be at least partly Tacitean and which also mentions a sect called "Christiani." In so doing, this will demonstrate how much historical data can be successfully concealed in one brief passage.

Fragment 2 was preserved by the Christian historian Sulpicius Severus in his Chronica 2.30.6-7 (ca. 400-403 CE)....Read More

“O’ Christ-Worshippers!” A Qasidah Which Refutes Christianity

4 / 24 / 07 - Ibn al-Qayyim al-Jauziyyah was a prominent Muslim jurist during Islam's Golden Age. Apart from his jurisdistic prowess, he was also competent in composing qasidah (Arabic poetry).
