Islamic ummah, Muslim land and Arab citizenship-search for identity

Istanbul Summit

If the Islamic concept of umma engendered resistance to the introduction of the civil-law notion of statehood and nationality after World War I, following World War II independence and partition of India and the massive migration of Muslims to Western countries necessitated a re-evaluation by Muslims generally of what constituted the Islamic Nation.


Here is an explanation of the ‘Aqeedah (Creed and Belief), of the Ahul -Sunnah wal Jamaa’ah upon the way of the jurists of the Religion: Aboo Haneefah an -Nu’maan ibn Thaabit al -Koofee, and Aboo Yoosuf Ya’qoob ibn Ibraaheem al -An saaree, and Aboo ‘Abdillaah Muhammad ibn al -Hasan ash-Shaybaanee – may Allaah be pleased with them all, and what they held as their Creed from the fundamentals of the Religion and what they held as Religion in obedience to the Lord of the creation.

Md Iqbal’s Presidential Address to the 25th Session of All-India Muslim League Allahabad- 29/12/1930

The Muslim demand for the creation of a Muslim India within India is, therefore, perfectly justified. The resolution of the All-Parties Muslim Conference at Delhi is, to my mind, wholly inspired by this noble ideal of a harmonious whole which, instead of stifling the respective individualities of its component wholes, affords them chances of fully working out the possibilities that may be latent in them. And I have no doubt that this House will emphatically endorse the Muslim demands embodied in this resolution.

Byzantine church Hagia Sophia was converted to a mosque by Muslim Fanatics: No Lord`s prayer but Namaz shall be offered henceforth

The decision said that in its title deed, Hagia Sophia was defined as a “mosque” and this cannot be legally changed.

Development of Islamic Theological Jurisprudence

The sketch given here is incomplete, not only in details but in the ground that it covers. Important phases of Muslim law, theology, and state theory are of necessity passed over entirely. Thus Babism is not touched at all and the Shi‘ite theology and law hardly at all. The Ibadite systems have the merest mention and Turkish and Persian mysticism are equally neglected. For such weighty organizations the Darwish Fraternities are most inadequately dealt with, and Muslim missionary enterprise might well be treated at length. Guidance on these and other points the student will seek in the bibliography. It, too, makes no pretence to completeness and consists of selected titles only.

Historical Matters Concerning Xinjiang : Full Text

To survive and develop, religions must adapt to their social environment. The history of religions in China shows that only by adapting themselves to the Chinese context can they be accommodated within Chinese society. The 70-year history of the PRC also shows that only by adapting to socialist society can religions in China develop soundly. We must uphold the principle of independence and self-management of China’s religious affairs, and prevent all religious tendency that seeks to divest itself of all Chinese elements.
