Muslims living in the west today often find themselves in a difficult position. As an ummah, we have never before experienced the existence we find ourselves in today. It is a situation which gives rise to many questions about identity, Islamic rules (fiqh) and our responsibilities in the west. Does our situation require new rules specifically for our situation and a new interpretation of Islam? Does it mean we can mould a new identity based on these changed rules and situations? Or should we stick to past norms and traditions established centuries ago? What happens when our Islamic tradition and practice conflict with modern western identity, its economy and legal systems? Join us as we explore these issues and discuss the understanding of our duties and identity that we need to have as Muslims living in the West.
