Middle East News: The Arab Spring has already deposed leaders like Zine El Abidine Bin Ali of Tunisia, Hosni Mubarak in Egypt, and Muammar Gaddafi in Libya. Syria's Bashar al-Assad is tenaciously holding on to power while rebels continue to fight for control of the country. The Islamic State (of Iraq and Syria), under nominal control of Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, challenges the very concept of statehood. They intend to install a new caliphate across the entire region. In short, Southwest Asia is an absolute mess. Now this . . . The government of Yemen, which had the full support of the United States government, has fled in the face of a rival Shia Houthi insurgency. (Most of the Arabian Peninsula follows Sunni Islam.) Western states like France fear a new failed state, one where chaos reigns and Islamic terrorism is exported, much like the Charlie Hebdo attacks in Paris. Add to this mix the just-announced death of Saudi Arabia's King Abdullah and one can find the world's most problematic political geography .. ...
Sahih Muslim (Arabic: صحيح مسلم, ṣaḥīḥ Muslim, full title Al-Musnadu Al-Sahihu bi Naklil Adli) is one of the Kutub al-Sittah (six major ahadith) of the hadith in Sunni Islam. It is the second most authentic hadith collection after Sahih al-Bukhari, and is highly acclaimed by Sunni Muslims. It was collected by Muslim ibn al-Hajjaj, also known as Imam Muslim. Sahih translates as authentic or correct.[1] Contents 1 Collection 2 Views 3 Distinctive Features 4 Commentaries and translations 5 References 6 Further reading 7 External links Collection The collector of the Sahih Muslim, Muslim ibn al-Hajjaj, was born into a Persian family in 204 AH (817/18 CE) in Nishapur (in modern-day Iran) and died in 261 AH (874/75 CE) in the city of his birth.

KUWAIT: Law drafted to Remove Churches On Feb 17, 2012; an Islamist member of Kuwaiti parliament, Osama Al-Monawer, threatened to draft a law that would remove all churches and prevent construction of new churches, arguing that "Kuwait is an Islamic country where churches are not permitted to be built." This is the prevailing attitude in Kuwaiti Parliament, which is also considering the implementation of Shariah law. Some believe Monawer's threat is in response to a January 2012 report indicating that a member of Kuwait's royal family has become a follower of Jesus. When a Kuwaiti delegation mentioned the proposed law to the Grand Mufti (the highest authority in Sunni Islam) in Saudi Arabia, he declared that since Kuwait is part of the Arabian Peninsula, 'it is necessary to destroy all the churches in it." He based this on a hadith (saying of Muhammad): "There are not to be two religions on the Peninsula." The Grand Mufti called for the destruction of "all the churches in the region."

Wahhabi ... (Danger) Wahhabism (Arabic: وهابية) is a branch of Islam. It is a form of Salafism, and a religious movement within Sunni Islam. Wahhabism was developed by an eighteenth century muslim theologian, Muhammad ibn Abd al-Wahhab (1703–1792) from Najd, Saudi Arabia. Ibn Abd Al-Wahhab advocated purging Islam of what he considered to be impurities and innovations. His has become the dominant form of Islam in Saudi Arabia. Its adherents prefer to be referred to as Salafis. The movement claims to adhere to the correct understanding of the general Islamic doctrine of Tawhid, on the "uniqueness" and "unity" of God, shared by the majority of Islamic sects, but uniquely interpreted by Ibn Abd Al-Wahhab. Ibn Abd-al-Wahhab was influenced by the writings of Ibn Taymiyya and questioned classical interpretations of Islam, claiming to rely on the Qur'an and the Hadith. He attacked a "perceived moral decline and political weakness" in the Arabian Peninsula and condemned what he perceived as idolatry, the p ...
