On March 18, 2005 Amina Wadud led the first female-led Jumuah (Friday) prayer. On that day women took a huge step towards being more like men. But, did we come closer to actualizing our God-given liberation?  >>> Read full article

Islam and Science
by FSCTC Limited

The crucial, and most fundamental, difference between Islamic and secular Western science is that Islam and Muslim Civilization both reached their apogee in the same centuries. At no other time in their history, and under no other circumstances, have Muslims achieved anything of similar proportion than in that so called golden era (800-1200). >>> Read full article
