Interview with Mufti Ismail Menk – Talks about ISIS, Education, Radicalization, Arab countries, Laws in the West, Young Muslims, Common Values and more (Video)
Mufti Ismail Menk gives his unique insights on a range of topics from ISIS to Islamophobia and the rise of Islam to his much talked about skydiving experience.
The world, it appears, has completely lost its mind. It seems that our tiny planet is staged for a complete disaster with the West and Muslim world as the co-stars. What’s sad is that all of these problems are based on misunderstandings and lies spread by hate mongers with one interest: growing their bank accounts. To add insult to injury, citizens from the West and the Muslim world are starting to detest each because they feel the other side is this Great Evil trying to enslave them. Then there are those caught in the middle: the American Muslims, aka, you and I. We’re blessed with the conundrum of being, both, Muslims and Americans. We know that Islam is not about killing the innocent, but, also know that reality tv is not the reality of Western culture. So what’s a brother/sister to do?

Extremism — what a shackling word we are used to hearing over and over these days!
Mass clashes, assassinations, protests, and violent attacks are manifestations of an extremist way of thinking or believing.
To many, extremism is linked to religion. To be religious often labels a person as an extremist — or, as average people call it, a “terrorist.”
John Lewis’s new line, hijabs to wear at school: Department store signs contract with schools in London and Liverpool to offer conservative Islamic clothing

John Lewis is offering the hijab in its school uniform department for the first time.
The headdress is to be sold in the company’s stores in London and Liverpool after it signed contracts with two schools – one which was set up to educate Muslim girls and a second that welcomes pupils from all religious communities.
The hijab covers the head and chest and is worn by Muslim women after the onset of puberty as a sign of modesty in the presence of men who are outside their immediate family.
