Problems of the Muslim world in 21st century and Prospects of Muslim renaissance
In the twenty first century the Muslim world is passing through a very challenging and crucial situation. We will face countless problems in the near future and we have to fight for our survival. There are multidimensional external attacks as well as internal challenges in the Muslim world. The Muslim world is under cultural raid and very fatal conspiracies. In order to know about the problems of the Muslims, it is necessary to look briefly at some of the aspects of physical and demographic profile of the Muslim world
Area and population of Muslim world
The Muslim world represents one fifth of the humanity occupying a global land mass spreading over 57 countries. It represents 23% of world population. The birth rate in Muslim world is 3.4%. about 80% of Muslim population is living in Muslim countries and the rest in the non-Muslim countries.
DEFENSE
The Muslim world is very weak as far as their defense is concerned due to low literacy rate and short of science and technology. In this case they cannot compete with the western world. Most of the Muslim countries look to the west for their defense. Total army of the Muslim world is 67 lacks. Although the Muslim world spends almost 76 billion dollars on defense but they are still unable to resist aggression from the west. Militarily, the Muslims are not only dependent on the West; they are helplessly caught in its grip. Despite all the expenditure on defense, they have not been able to even face the threat that has been hammering at the doors of the Arab and Muslim World for over 50 years in the form of small state of Israel.

Education
It is one of joint features of Muslim world that they are backward in education. A very small...

...With the American Jewish Community” By Imam Feisal Abdul Rauf | Issue Date: November 2011 Editor’s Note: Imam Feisal Abdul Rauf, internationally known Muslim leader who lives and teaches in New York City and is a friend to BJ’s rabbis and other faith leaders, wrote an essay for the book Muslims and Jews in America,1 from which the excerpts below are taken. In this essay he outlines the commonalities faced by faith traditions of immigrant religions in America—particularly Judaism and Islam. … Any student of American immigrant history recognizes that the path to integration in the United States has always been painfully difficult. As a result, it is important that as Muslims struggle to establish themselves within the context of the broader American society they learn successful lessons from the American Jewish community’s historical integration, which will likewise open a space for meaningful partnership between these two communities. As American Muslims forge such relationships, I am convinced that we can both solidify Muslims’ presence within the American mainstream and initiate a fresh chapter in global Jewish-Muslim relations, one that echoes the best chapters of the historical reality of Jewish-Muslim harmony. … Though focused on issues of immigration and integration within a specific American context, Jewish-Muslim partnerships should be built upon the foundation of what I call the “Abrahamic ethic.” … The essence of the Abrahamic ethic is the understanding that......

American Freedoms for the Muslim World

...American Freedoms for the Muslim World As an American we are guaranteed certain rights, one of these rights is the freedom of speech, granted to us by our founding fathers, it is the First Amendment in the Bill of Rights, it has since been used as a founding point for the Right to Freedom of Expression which is recognized as a human right under Article 19 of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights and recognized in International Human Rights Law in the International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights (ICCPR).1 But is there a line that must be drawn? Are we truly ‘All entitled to our own opinion’ or is it true that ‘We are all entitled to our own opinion, the problem is when you share it with everyone else’? Social Media has always been a great opportunity to express one’s self, from the basics of printing your thoughts on paper for others to read, or to broadcast your voice over the air waves for people to hear, and with the invention of Television you can even share your facial expressions, gestures, and movements. However there has always been a limit to just how much you could express. There have always been ‘rules’ to follow, things that you just don’t put on the television, or the radio, things that you cannot print in the paper. But with the birth of the internet a brand new freedom immerged, suddenly and with great explosion anyone could express themselves in any manner they desired, and there are few ‘rules’ to regulate just how ‘free’ you can be. We see......

Muslim

...of Muslim Muslim is an Arabic word meaning "one who submits to God". The ordinary word in English is "Muslim". It is sometimes transliterated as "Moslem", which is an older spellig. In defining Muslim, the mystic Ibn Arabi said: "A Muslim is a person who has dedicated his worship exclusively to God.Islam means making one's religion and faith God's alone.” Their basic religious practices are enumerated in the Five Pillars of Islam, which, in addition to Shahadah, consist of daily prayers, fasting during Ramadan , zakat, and the pilgrimage to hajj at least once in a lifetime. Muslims believe that God is one and incomparable, He creates all the things. Muslim beliefs regarding God are summed up in chapter 112 of the Qur'an, al-Ikhlas. Muslims also believe that Islam is the complete and universal religion, including through the prophets Abraham, Moses and Jesus.Muslims maintain that previous messages and revelations have been partially changed or corrupted over time. but consider the Qur'an to be both unaltered and the final revelation from God. Most Muslims accept as a Muslim anyone who has publicly pronounced the declaration of faith which states, "I testify that there is no god except for the God, and I testify that Muhammad is the Messenger of God." They also believe that Muhammad is the Seal of the Prophets and the final prophet. Muslims view many prophets and messengers such as Adam, Noah, Abraham, Jacob, Moses and Jesus and his apostles are all considered to be Muslims in...

Being Muslim in the 21st Century

...What is Islam? For a fifth of the world's population, Islam is both a religion and a complete way of life. Muslims follow a religion of peace, mercy, and forgiveness, and the majority have nothing to do with the extremely grave events, which have come to be associated with their faith through a biased media. For centuries, the Muslim faith has had a history of struggle to create a Qu’ranic civilization. The challenge of creating a “good” society on earth is the goal sought by Islam; one universal ideal for the entire world, It has been the mission of all Muslim prophets to see that humanity, through the spiritual and moral perfection taught by the Qu’ran, brings the establishment of a community built through the word of Allah and the message of Muhammad. However, it has not been an easy task. Many people have struggled and strived to follow their Faith as time and the way of things changed, all the while respecting the demands of moral values, socialization, family, and community found in the Qu’ran. The Qur'an cites that "A man receives but only that for which he strives; that his endeavors will be judged, and only then will he receive his recompense in full." (53:39-41). In other words, Muslims must continue to strive to earn their final blessing. How to maintain that faith by ruthlessly remaining a devout Muslim in this new, accepting, transforming 21st century has turned out to be quite a challenge. As we enter a new age ripe for reconsidering the role of the......

Incorporation of Muslim in Non-Muslim World: Focusing on France, Germany, Uk and Usa

...Incorporation of Muslim in Non-Muslim World: Focusing on France, Germany, UK and USA Abstract Though many European countries have large and growing Muslim minorities but since the terrorist attacks on the United States on September 11, 2001, Madrid in 2004 and London in 2005 the vast majority of Muslims in Europe became vulnerable to extremist ideologies. The matter of joy is that over the last several years, European governments have stepped up their efforts to improve Muslim integration. These have included introducing new citizenship laws and language requirements, promoting dialogue with Muslim organizations, developing “homegrown” imams more familiar with European culture and traditions, improving educational and economic opportunities for Muslims, and tackling racism and discrimination. By ensuring the Muslim integration, European governments have also sought to strengthen security measures and tighten immigration and asylum policies to prevent radicalization and combat terrorism. So this paper will illustrate the incorporation of Muslim in Secular Europe along with the policies of combating terrorism.

Problems Faced by Muslim World

...held in Pakistan on 11 May 2013 to elect the members of the 14th National Assembly and to the four provincial assemblies of Punjab, Sindh, Baluchistan and Khyber Pakhtunkhwa. Elections were held in all four provinces, the federal capital territory of Islamabad and in the Federally Administered Tribal Areas. The remaining two territories of Pakistan, the Azad Kashmir and Gilgit-Baltistan, were ineligible to vote due to their disputed status. Pakistan is the world's fifth largest democracy[3] and the world's second largest Muslim democracy after Indonesia.[4] The elections are noted for the first civilian transfer of power following the successful completion of a five-year term by a democratically elected government.[5] The election took place in 272 constituencies, whilst a further 70 seats were awarded to parties having been reserved for women and minority groups. None of the parties achieved the 172 seats needed for an overall majority.[6] The Pakistan Muslim League (N), led by Nawaz Sharif, won the largest number of votes and seats but still fell six seats short. This resulted in a hung parliament where no party was able to command a majority in the National Assembly.[7] This was the second consecutive general election to return a hung parliament, the first being the prior 2008 general election. Unlike in 2008, the potential for a hung parliament had this time been widely considered and predicted and both the country and politicians were better prepared for the......

Problems of Muslim World

...and dynamic West and the stagnant and obscurantist Muslim world was the collapse of the latter. Even a cursory glance leads one to the conclusion that the Muslim world starting from Morocco to Indonesia and from Africa to Central Asia is in turmoil. Most, if not all, of the Muslim countries are going through a phase of internal convulsion and uncertainty marked by political instability, economic under-development and deprivation, scientific and technological backwardness, and cultural dislocation. The situation for the Muslim world is further aggravated because of the multifarious challenges confronting it on the external front. The need of the hour is for the Muslim intelligentsia and leaders to realise the gravity of the situation and present to their compatriots well-considered views on overcoming the political, economic, social and cultural hindrances blocking the way to progress, prosperity and internal stability. The present condition of the Muslim world needs to be analysed in correct historical perspective. The Muslim civilisation, which had been in the vanguard of human intellectual and economic progress for several centuries after its birth, started showing signs of slackening around the seventeenth century A. D. Muslim scholars lost the appetite for intellectual enquiry. Instead of opening new horizons for intellectual growth, they simply became the followers of dogmas inherited from the past. The Muslim civilisation thus lost the vitality and......

The Muslim World: Medusa’s Wreck

...had worked only as a customs officer. Woefully, the Muslim world today represents the tragic story of the Medusa, the ill-piloted French naval ship that ran aground because of its captain’s blunders and his dependence on others for navigational guidance, leaving behind a tale of helplessness, desperation and death. The Medusa’s wreck is still out there, lying stuck on the West African coast, and isn’t going anywhere. The Muslim world today is in no better shape. Like the Medusa’s wreck, it is just lying out there, aimlessly floating like a stricken ship, with no one to steer it out of troubled waters. Representing one-fifth of humanity as well as of the global land mass spreading over 57 countries, and possessing 70 per cent of the world’s energy resources and nearly 50 per cent of the world’s raw materials, the Muslim world should have been a global giant, economically as well as politically. Instead, rich in everything and weak in all respects, it represents only five per cent of the world’s GDP. As a non-consequential entity, it has no role in global decision-making or even in addressing its own problems. Poor and dispossessed, Muslim nations emerging from long colonial rule may have become sovereign states but are without genuine political and economic independence. Their trade, their oil revenues, their investible funds, their banking, their savings, every thing that the affluent countries in the Muslim world have is concentrated in the West. Though some of them......

Pcd vs. Muslim Culture

...PCD vs. Muslim Culture One thing America prides itself on is the freedom it allows its citizens, men and women; the freedom of speech, freedom of religion, freedom of choice—the freedom to live. As we have learned through media and even through school, there are cultures that don’t allow the same freedom and opportunity. In my project, I want to discuss gender roles, sexuality and the ways it could affect an individual’s life. In this specific video that I chose, these women are overtly sexy, they appear confident and their words are not words that an oppressive man would approve of, I’m sure. I don’t believe that these ladies are in full control of their actions on stage or their look; I want to see what affects the performance could have on not only American viewers, but Muslim viewers, as well as the performers, themselves. The Pussycat Dolls famous record “Don’t Cha” includes words that could be considered all kinds of things; they could definitely be considered unladylike if put in the wrong hands. In today’s society, women have a different kind of power that some cultures- -and simply some men- -are not accustomed to. “Don't cha wish your girlfriend was hot like me? Don't cha wish your girlfriend was a freak like me? Don't cha? Don't cha? Don't cha wish your girlfriend was raw like me? Don't cha wish your girlfriend was fun like me? Don't cha? Don't cha?” (Pussycat Dolls) How many guys really like a woman that is that direct and forward? I am fully aware that......
