Discussions on Muslim Community

Peace, one and all…

What does it mean to be part of an emerging Muslim community?  What does it mean to be part of such a community in an environment that is often implicitly (and sometimes explicitly) hostile?  How should that community engage with the wider environment?  How is that community to critique those aspects of surrounding culture that are antithetical to its teachings?  What should its long-term goals be?  What shorter-term strategies should that community adopt as it struggles to realise those goals?  These are some of the related questions emerging in a recent and fascinating blog discussion.

To follow that discussion and to contribute, go to the following posts:

This discussion has raised all sorts of important issues.  As such, I think it is important to disseminate this discussion as much as possible.

May Allah bless all who pass by and may Allah grant us the ability to build successful, flourishing communities – the world over.

  1. Salams Aaminah,

    I hope you are well, insha Allah. Yes, I seem to have missed that one. To be honest, this is the main reason for my own post – to collect and gather this important discussion in one place, so that we may all access it quickly and easily. I will add this link momentarily insha Allah.
