Review: “Reading Quran: A Step-by-Step Guide to Quran’ic Fluency” is a book I received from a teacher at my son’s madrassah alhamdullilah. It’s an alternate book they use. Anyway, the book is easy to follow to help children. It can also help converts who need it, too. It’s very self-explanatory. Check it out online at readingquranbook.com .

Written Vs Not Written Stuff: Misinterpretation Among Muslim Communities About Vaccinations Part II

The Human Lens

Written by: Papatia Feauxzar, Part II

In a subject totally unrelated which is al Qisas–The Law of Equality, in case of murder mentioned in Surah 2 verse 178, Shariah law mandates the preservation of life.

And getting a vaccine to counter Covid-19 is an act that helps preserve life. That said, inna lillahi wa inna ilahi rajiun. Moreover, Islam is strongly against suicide.

“Therefore, (O Believers) eat of the lawful and good things that Allah has provided for you, and be grateful for His favors if it is true that you only worship Him. Indeed, Allah has forbidden you that which dies of itself, blood, and the flesh of swine; also, any flesh consecrated to…

Written Vs Not Written Stuff: Misinterpretation Among Muslim Communities About Vaccinations

The Human Lens

Written by: Saadia Haq, Part I

The advent of Coronavirus pandemic has once again put on spotlight on the issues of health precautions in particularly vaccinations among the populations of Islamic countries. Having said that, lest be clear that not all Muslims are anti-vaxers or vaccine hesitant but problems continue to crop up now and then.

This featured series examines some of the key issues among Muslim communities that cause people in refusing and also delaying to get their Covid-19 jabs. We may fall into the danger with thinking that religion and fear of God, Allah or the Al Mighty produces the existing fatalistic attitudes towards the disease, as for a matter of fact also viruses are part of the creation.

The main distintive Islamic concern is much simpler as lots of believers worry that vaccinations contain pork and non halal items.

Whereas the second major issue is the presence…
