Culture, Community and Communication

One very real difference between accepted Western and Islamic cultural norms can be found in simple conversation. In many Islamic societies a man is not permitted to inquire about the another man’s wife in direct conversation.

Muslim attitudes

For many Muslims Western society is Christian. Many of them do not make any differentiate between Western culture and Christianity. For Muslims, alcohol consumption, pornography, popular films, music, a liberal lifestyle and a lack of public religious practise are sure signs of the failure of Western countries.

The Plight of Refugees and Refugee Women

Refugee women face particular hardship with poor living conditions, poverty and the lack of access to relief projects. Many Muslim women lose their husbands and fathers as a result of war and conflicts. Muslim women fact additional problems as they are not leaders in their society.

The Pain and the Sorrow

It is certain that these last five years has seen the Muslim world groaning in great pain. Wars, earthquakes, tsunamis, daily struggles with poverty, lose of family members plus an emptiness of spirit and soul are things we need to think and pray about for Muslim peoples.
