Islamic Tradition

Living Islam: In accordance with its authentic sources, Quran & Sunnah for the maqásid: Shariah as mercy to humanity[1], a bastion and representative of moderate, mainstream Islam.


Islamic tradition: Rediscovering and re-deploying the partially forgotten, sometimes lost–original and authentic Way of Prophet Muhammad , confirmed and guarded by the saints and scholars of Islam for over 14 centuries up to today. 

Not in the meaning of ’going back’ to the customs and conventions of old, without context and understanding. 


’To be traditional means to be part of a tradition, and traditions - by their nature - are moving through time and space.’ AHM


NB: It is Islam that reigns - today - until the last day.

Study the Quran Regularly

{ For you your religion, and for me my religion*. } Sura 109-6 *way of life

 اقرءوا القرآن فإنه يأتي يوم القيامة شفيعًا لأصحابه

Imam Shafi`i: Knowledge is what benefits, knowledge is not what one has memorized. [+]

[1] The Shariah is compassion and justice, and seeks the welfare of human beings. If its application leads to the opposite, then our understanding /interpretation needs to be re-evaluated in the light of the Texts.


A wave of demonizing Islam has been unleashed from certain quarters of the West and even of the East - especially since 9/11…

It is our conviction that nothing enduring can be built on violence,

and Allah grants to non-violence what He does not grant to violence! [*]
