... Islam is more tolerant and accepting than Western World ideologies! Even though most of the other religions dilute their beliefs, traditions and customs for the sake of advancements in human life, Islam never bothered much in reforming their fundamental beliefs and traditions. Western world often criticizes Islam as a patriarchal community for its failure to adapt with the developments in human life. However, Islamic scholars believe that Islam is more tolerant and accepting than Western World ideologies. This paper analyses the above claims based on the Time Magazine article, "Many Faces of Islam", written by Jeff Chu. The general belief among Islamic scholars is that "all men are not created...

In the wake of rising terrorism attacks across the world, islamophobia has significantly rose to noticeable levels with global and corporate leaders such as Ropert Murdoch airing very controversial anti-islam sentiments.

... 17 January Commentaries of The Thief of Bagdad 1924 (China Version) The Thief of Baghdad is a film that has attracted several logical arguments. It therefore becomes imperative to take a critical look at one of the arguments about this epic film. It has been argued that, the film did not treat Islam with the seriousness it deserves. The story Ahmed told the women in the palace harem in the film about having 365 wives without loving them is one of the likely ways that, one could say that, the religion of Islam was not taken seriously (The Thief of Baghdad). This could be true if one considers that, Islam is a religion that allows people to marry as many wives as they wish as long as they would love t...
