The Pen Magazine

The Pen is an educational and cultural magazine which covers the Islamic faith, worship, the issues of the Islamic world, and the struggles towards the ittihad (unity) of Muslims. As of 2014 it is going to be published biannually.

Every print issue of The Pen covers and sheds light into the topics which are of great importance for the believers such as the existence and oneness of Allah, the proofs of the existence of Hereafter, the mission of prophethood, the Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) and his way of life (Sunnah), and the reasons behind the creation of man and the test of life. The Pen asks “Why” rather than “What” and “How” while explaining the issues of Islamic belief and pillars.

The Pen is inspired by the Risale-i Nur collection written by Imam Bediuzzaman Said Nursi who is one of the most effective scholars of the modern age, and addresses the minds, the hearts, and the souls of people in a convincing manner in his risalas (treatises).

On the other hand, The Pen also deals with the topics related to agonies, pains, and problems in the entire Islamic world. Especially, Muslims’ turning into a body made up of concordant parts is a lofty ideal for The Pen that it devotes its pages without limitation. For that reason, the articles analysing the problems before the unity of Muslims are published periodically in the magazine.
