Dealing with sectarianism in the Muslim Ummah
Moderation: The right epistemology for the 21st Century crisis
In the Holy Qur'an Surah 2: 143, Allah says:
Thus we have made you moderate Muslims (ummatan wasatan) a just and best folk that you be witness over mankind and the messenger be witness over you
The Future of Islam in Post Globalisation
While past Islamic civilisation and achievements can set a clear vision for Islamic revival in the post globalisation era, it requires a new revision of Islamic vision on good governance within Islamic development principles. The current debate about sectarian ideals is not just an obstacle but a great driver to derail Islamic revival. Many Islamists have been on the wrong side of the equation and bogged down with dogmatic arguments with no clear mechanism for the establishment of an Islamic system in divided Muslim societies around the globe.
Challenges facing the Muslim Ummah
"O men! Behold, We have created you all out of a male and a female, and have made you into nations and tribes, so that you might come to know one another. Verily, the noblest of you in the sight of God is the one who is most deeply conscious of Him. Behold, God is all-knowing, all-aware."
