This is the blog of a Muslim woman who is not satisfied with the ‘Progressive’ or Neo-Conservative interpretations of the religion that have come out in modern times. I reject the idea that Islam has to be reformed, I espouse the idea that Muslims must be reformed.

I believe that in order to start fixing our problems, the Muslims need to refer back to and revive traditional Islamic scholarship. Muslims were successful when they were committed to knowledge and we need to be committed to sound knowledge.

In this blog I will defend Traditional Islam that has been transmitted to us by our wonderful scholars leading back to the Beloved Prophet (May God Bless him and give him peace.)

I will deal with women’s issues and Islamic Law to the best of my ability as a non-scholar with an emphasis on the Maliki school of Law.

I will also deal with the frequent criticisms of Islam God willing.

And of course there will be random things as well.

  11. Jay Said:

    Assalamu Aliakum,

    Mash’Allah, really nice site Sister. May Allah help you in your aims to defend traditional Islam. Just read the About section and your article on Ingrid Mattison. I so completely agree with you when you compare her with the likes of Irshad Manjy.

    You may be interested in http://www.ummahpulse.com they’re an Muslim news group based in the UK. They seem pretty much on your wavelength.

    Masha’Allah, this is a nice blog. Nothing but support for traditional Islam here (Shafi’i myself). InshAllah, with Allah’s assistance we’ll make a real difference for the lives of Muslims and non-Muslim alike. All we have to do now is work hard and implement what we learn fisabilillah.

  23. asif Said:

    To know Islam you should know the scholars. Scholars like Sheikh ul Islam Ibn Taymiyah, Ibnul Qayim al Jawziya, Ibn Hajar Al Askhalani, Abdulaziz bin baz, Uthaimeen and the like.

  24. humm your blog is interesting

    I think Islam it is good and moden BUT Sharia Law has a lot of Un-Islamic things that needed to be fixed.
    Thats what i do in my blog

    I am going to kept an eye on your blog

    Asalaamu Alaikum,

    This is Lalomi Atwa following up on my request to submit a press release for your review and publishing.

    Ma Salaama

  26. Ala Said:

    I wish I could find these aims laudable, but in my experience traditional is just another word for retrograde. Maybe you could answer some of the criticisms I raise on my blog.
