  • 5. Winners and Losers - What we are and what we can be

    Mirza Yawar Baig, 13 Oct 2013

    The biography of Genghis Khan is a good place to study Loser # 1. His story is a litany of woes and losses and defeats one piled on another right through his childhood, teens and twenties. But what shines through is the almost irrational belief in his ability to win, when there was nothing happening in his life to indicate that there was even a modicum of proof to show that his belief was true. I am sure there were people in his life who thought he had gone mad. Yet his life shows that he didn’t waver in his belief and continued to make attempt after attempt, shrinking at nothing which he thought would enable him to win. As they say, history is then witness to a man who created the largest empire that the world has ever seen in his own lifetime of just over 60 years.


  • 6. Has the time come to speak of ‘fiqh of minorities’?

    Dr. Beddy Ebnou, 02 May 2013

    Has the time come to speak of ‘fiqh of minorities’?

    This question in itself, suggests that we can make a ‘presumably legitimate’ distinction between fiqh of minorities and a fiqh of majorities. So let us first clarify what we mean by minority/majority.

    Firstly, we have the philosophical approach, notably that of the philosopher Kant for example (WAS IST AUFKLÄRUNG ?), for whom minority / majority does not refer to statistical criteria within a given statistical framework. Rather, minority refers to the ability to think for oneself, thus freeing oneself from the tutelage of domination. This needs to be carried out first on the level of mutual understanding, that is to say, on an ideological level.
