At Living Islam : Islamic Tradition

By Omar KN

Tweet #Omar KN


We present here some quality texts from the Islamic tradition and references of Islam as the middle path, neither extremist viewpoints, nor modernist interpretations.

Islam cannot be reduced to a utopia for the perfect society in this world - dunya, which is but support for the Hereafter and Islam is neither limited to the domain of faith, nor to the domain of law: instead there has to be a revival of Islamic ’haqīqah’ sacred knowledge. … [ more ]

The ’war on terror’ is a lie. It is not a ’War on Terror’, but a neat front to enforce the superpowers' global hegemony in this world. … [ Preamble ]
