  • STANFORD RECEIVES GIFT FOR ISLAMIC STUDIES

    Stanford University has received $9 million to endow a program and professorship in Islamic studies - gifts that could position the school to become a powerhouse in the study of the world's second-largest faith.
    The field of Islamic studies has attracted more interest, research and students since the Sept. 11, 2001, attacks on the United States.
    In the last two years, student demand for classes on Islamic religion, culture, history and languages has soared. And many universities, including Stanford, have not been able to keep pace.
    Retired Oracle executive Sohaib Abbasi and his wife, Sara, hope to change that, Sohaib Abbasi said. The Atherton residents, who were born in Pakistan, donated $2.5 million to establish the Islamic studies program, Stanford announced Friday.
    In addition, Stanford alumna Lysbeth Warren gave $2 million to endow a new Islamic studies professorship. Both gifts were matched by the William and Flora Hewlett Foundation, bringing the total to $9 million...
     
  • WHAT THE WEST CAN LEARN FROM ISLAM
    Imam Hamza Yusuf, BBC News, 8/29/03

    Hamza Yusuf Hanson is an American convert to Islam. He is an outspoken advocate of better understanding between the Muslim world and the West.
    Writing in the third century, the Arab poet Mutanabbi describes how a recipient of another's largesse will usually respond with either indebtedness or resentment :
    'A generous soul is bought when it receives, a vile one returns good done with disease.'
    Your response to another's good toward you determines your nature.
    If good in nature, you will respond with indebtedness and respect; if vile, with resentment and envy.

  • THE POSITION OF WOMEN IN ISLAM
    Dr. John Esposito, Gulf News, 8/22/03
     
    • http://www.gulf-news.com/Articles/Opinion.asp?ArticleID=95794
      For decades Islam has evoked discussion and debate. The religion is under the microscope after the September 11, 2001, attacks. Never before has Islam been so questioned as to the extent that it is today. A few scholars have come to its rescue to clarify the principles on which Islam is based. One such scholar is Dr. John L. Esposito who has done so through his writings. This is the sixth in a series of nine articles by Esposito shedding light on the many areas of Islam, among them being the Holy Quran, politics, women, and terrorism, to eliminate the misunderstandings in Islam.

      RIDGECREST, N.C. -Islam is rising in America, not because of its strength, but because of the retreat of the church, and if the religion founded by Muhammad 1,400 years ago continues to grow at its current rate, there will be more Muslims than Christians in every major U.S. city by 2020.
