How did Europe achieve the Union?

The European countries have succeeded to establish a union after long centuries of religious and political clashes with each other. Though they are not totally free of problems, currently they have a political union which functions mostly worry-free. This is because that the European countries reached almost a common and similar level and ground in politics, economy, science and technology and world view that they nearly abolished all kind of borders between themselves and they adopted a good way of living together. Particularly in the middle ages, what was the…

The Islamic World and the Unity

Although our main source of enlightenment and our true guide, the Qur’an, strictly urges us, as Muslims, into unity, solidarity, cooperation and alliance, contrarily we are fragmented into a thousand pieces and hate each other more than we hate our enemies. It is obvious that the fact that we are not in unity gets us into a lot of troubles. In spite of the terrible, horrendous tragedies that we experienced for the last two hundred years we have not yet learned how to become united. What prevents us from being…

Hope and Future of Muslims

Sometimes I think to myself that it is not too absurd or inconvenient that the intelligentsia in the Islamic world mostly adore and are infatuated with the Western civilization values when I take a look at the general landscape in the Islamic countries. Let us forget the admiration of the Western civilization but we have to confront the widespread problems surrounding the Islamic world.

A Fallacy of Atheism: Formation by itself

Since the beginning of human life on the earth there has always been groups of people along with the believers, who have been sceptic and have had controversial ideas regarding the belief that there is an omnipotent and omniscient creator who created the universe and settled down the earth for man and by that way he has been trying them so that it will be revealed who will obey Him and who will not.

Why did Allah create the evils?

It is not rare that we open up our eyes to a new day hearing a news story of a tragic natural disaster which occurs in a far corner of the world or may be in our country and sometimes it is possible that we find ourselves in the middle of such a disaster. At other times, we always complain about the high rate of criminality in our communities. There is no such a country in which any sort of crimes are not committed; murders, all kind of robberies, rapes,…

Despotism in the Middle East: A View from Bernard Lewis

The question as to whether Islam and democracy are compatible with each other has been widely debated. In these investigations Islam is always considered as the agent that needs to be subordinated to democracy, and that it needs to be changed, modified and tailored according to the principles of democracy. These intellectual pursuits increased, especially after the end of the Cold War. However, in the geography in which Islam has traditionally been the culturally dominating factor, democracy-oriented state structures did not develop much. Instead, totalitarian repressive regimes have flourished in…

The Vicious Circle of Demonization & Victimization of Muslims

A black guard stands erect looking down at the body of a man lying on the stairs. The man’s body looks similar to the standing man’s in colour and shape, but we understand that the man was just beheaded by the guard, who is wiping the blood from his sword with his sleeve. The guard looks huge because the viewers see him from the below. He looms at the top of the stairs. He is wearing a pink robe, yet since half of the top Am did SHOULDN’T fine fit…

A Closer Look at the Country of Major Uprisings: EGYPT

What happened to the so-called Arab spring which was cheered so enthusiastically at the outset by the western public opinion and western elites? Well, it is now anything but a spring.

It is difficult to put up with the endorsement that the Bahrain administration gets from the Western alliance against its uprising people, while Libya’s old administration was toppled through the support of NATO. It is…

Bangladesh: A Country that needs our Helping Hand

Ten hours after taking off from Istanbul, we landed into Shah Jalal International Airport in Dhaka, Bangladesh. Half of the Bangladeshi people earn less than one dollar a day. That fact reveals itself when you take a glance around the airport as soon as you land. We realized that the buildings, devices, public transportation vehicles and even the clothes on people were quite old. There was a crowd in front of the migration office screaming and shouting at each other. The Bangladeshi people were returning home from the countries they had gone…
