A chance to listen to a repeat of a topical discussion programme recorded on 20th June 2024. Gazan Refugees: The latest conflict between Israel and Hamas has resulted in significant casualties and destruction. Given these dire circumstances, allowing Gazan refugees into the UK becomes a humanitarian duty, offering a lifeline to those escaping violence, destruction, and deprivation. Some people argue that Gazan refugees should not be allowed into the UK because they are led by Hamas, raising concerns about potential support for terrorism. Join us as we discuss the various opinions on this issue, examine British values of compassion, justice, and humanity, and the need to protect innocent individuals from injustice, regardless of their background. Islamophobia: Hate crimes have been a topic of concern in the UK for many years. However, after the rising tensions in the Middle East, it seems that Islamophobia and hate crimes against Muslims has been rapidly increasing. Join us today as we discuss the sudden surge of hate crimes and the impact its had on Muslim communities.

Episode 22. Love For All (In The 21st Century). Today we’ll be unpacking; where do we get our subconscious ideas about love from? What it means to be loved or to show love nowadays - and perhaps, where many of us actually get it wrong. Romantic comedies and dramas are popular, and adverts on TV purport to show an ideal of what love looks like. But What is true love - is it hard to find in our overly hedonistic society? Can it even be quantified or unpacked? And what does it look like in 2023? Join us to find out from an Islamic perspective.

Episode 36. Everyone agrees that China’s rise and transformation over the last few decades has been absolutely amazing. Napoleon had once remarked about China “Let her sleep, for when she wakes she will shake the world”. It seems China has re-awakened, and it is making its presence being felt all around the world.  When we look at the overall recorded history of the world, which goes back several thousand years, Asia has been the most important region of the world. For nearly two thousand years, until the mid-1800s, China, and India, were the biggest economies of the world. In many ways the last 200 years of European dominance have been an aberration. Human civilisations and nations are like living organisms, they have life cycles. Some evolve into new nations and cultures and some totally disappear from the face of the globe. China represents a large nation and a civilisation, which has gone through several cycles and has had many ups and downs. China is the only ancient civilisation to fall down several times and rise again to enter the modern world. One of the most important distinguishing features of China is that it is a civilisational state, unlike many other states in the world. For about two and a half thousand years there has been a Chinese nation using a Chinese language. China has had a continuing experience of civilisation rivalled in duration only by that of ancient Egypt. Dr Mohammed Iqbal the host of Living History will explore the rich history of China in a four part programme with his panelists Arif Ahmed and Yousaf Aftab. This is Part 3 of this 4 Part series, which will cover the Great Ming dynasty which replaced the Mongol Yuan dynasty and finished off with the Qing dynasty which eventually capitulated to the European powers bringing imperial rule to an end.

152 – Unity and Islam Islam emphasises the importance of unity between humankind. The concept of Tawheed, Oneness of God, teaches this, because it makes us realise that humankind is one regardless of any apparent identity-based differences we may hold. The concept teaches us not to divide humankind based on socially constructed prejudices. The past year, 2020, has brought to the fore the many divisions that are embedded within our society. The pandemic showed us the dire consequences of socioeconomic inequities. In all of this, was the common belief that we needed unity amongst mankind in order to put right the wrongs that we witnessed.

Episode 2. This episode will serve as an introduction to the concept of FoRB. It will focus on the origins of FoRB, The origins of the concept of freedom of expression, freedom of religion in history & how it has evolved over time, the relevance it has played in history and where the key changes occurred historically to the rights of FoRB. In particular, we will focus on the early years of FoRB: The Romans tolerated most religions, including Judaism, and encouraged local subjects to continue worshipping their own gods. They did not however, tolerate Christianity until it was legalised by the Roman emperor Galerius in 311. Holmes and Bickers note that as long as Christianity was treated as a part of Judaism it enjoyed the same freedom, but the Christian claim to religious exclusivity meant its followers found themselves subject to hostility. The early Christian apologist Tertullian was the first-known writer referring to the term libertas religionis. The Edict of Milan guaranteed freedom of religion in the Roman Empire until the Edict of Thessalonica in 380, which outlawed all religions except Christianity. Following a period of fighting lasting around a hundred years before 620 AD which mainly involved Arab and Jewish inhabitants of Medina (then known as Yathrib), religious freedom for Muslims, Jews and pagans was declared by Prophet Muhammad (Peace and Blessing of Allah be upon him) in the Constitution of Medina. In early Muslim history (until mid 11th century), most Islamic scholars maintained a level of separation from the state which helped to establish some elements of institutional religious freedom. The Islamic Caliphate later guaranteed religious freedom under the conditions that non-Muslim communities accept dhimmi status and their adult males pay the jizya tax instead of the zakat paid by Muslim citizens.

Shame has also featured in shaping societies from the adoption of babies from unwed mothers to the Japanese act of Hari Kari, shame has been used as a social device. Yet it also has a personal implication and at its root is a feeling emanating from the self not from others. So what is the role of shame in faith? Do religious laws use the concept of shame? How useful is the concept of shame in developing a relationship with God? Are shame and regret the same? What is the difference between shame and punishment?

Iraq once stood as one of the world’s most important countries and unfortunately today much of its rich history and culture has been caught in the cross-fire of numerous geopolitical conflicts and tensions, not only in a literal sense in terms of landmarks but also in thought production and epistemology. With pioneering art styles, philosophical debates, and scientific enquiry, Iraq formed a large part of what is known as the Islamic Golden Age. Sources of learning have come and gone, been celebrated, and lamented – the House of Wisdom is indeed another example of an overlooked centre of artistic thought. This show will explore the significance of the Iraqi school of thought production, with an in depth look at the culture that existed allowing such advancements to be made.

A chance to listen to a repeat of a topical discussion programme recorded on 20th June 2024. Gazan Refugees: The latest conflict between Israel and Hamas has resulted in significant casualties and destruction. Given these dire circumstances, allowing Gazan refugees into the UK becomes a humanitarian duty, offering a lifeline to those escaping violence, destruction, and deprivation. Some people argue that Gazan refugees should not be allowed into the UK because they are led by Hamas, raising concerns about potential support for terrorism. Join us as we discuss the various opinions on this issue, examine British values of compassion, justice, and humanity, and the need to protect innocent individuals from injustice, regardless of their background.  Islamophobia: Hate crimes have been a topic of concern in the UK for many years. However, after the rising tensions in the Middle East, it seems that Islamophobia and hate crimes against Muslims has been rapidly increasing. Join us today as we discuss the sudden surge of hate crimes and the impact its had on Muslim communities.

158 – Language: our primary source of communication. But it’s also more than that; it signifies where we’re from, it is used to influence and persuade, it is turned into the most moving of poetry. Why does language have such a profound effect on us? Why is it that a British person flinches at the use of the word “pants” instead of “trousers”? What does it mean if immigrants are described as “floods” and “swarms” in the media? We explore all this and more—looking specifically at how the language used to represent Islam, whether in the media or classic literature, has affected perceptions of Muslims.

This show challenges the perceptions equating female empowerment with breaking away from the ‘domestic sphere’, and it underlines the profound wisdom behind Islamic teachings regarding our households. Recent shifts to ‘working from home’ and lockdown experiences have renewed the importance given to home comforts and domestic stability which have been increasingly overlooked in western cultures. The hearth and home represent the building blocks of society and are vital for our spiritual, psychological and emotional wellbeing. We explore why this is the case and how we can make our homes into heaven-like abodes by acting upon Islam’s guidance.

In today’s day and age where one is continuously bombarded by images and opinions on how to look, act, and think in order to be perfect, it is hard enough to hold on to some sense of confidence for most people. As Muslim women living in a western world in which our values contrast what society dictates is right, it can be especially difficult to fit in while also holding on to our faith with confidence. How do Muslim women confidently go out and contribute to society, serve humanity, and establish their identities without compromising their faith in Islam?
