With regards to the names and attributes of Allah…

It is not allowed to speak or interpret the names and attributes of Allah except via the Quran and sunnah.

قال الإمام أحمد: 

لا يوصف الله إلا بما وصف به نفسه أو وصفه به رسوله صلى الله عليه و سلم لا يُتجاوز القران و الحديث.

مجموع الفتاوى لابن تيمية

Imam Ahmad رحمة الله عليه said:

Allah is not to described except in the manner He سبحانه و تعالى has described Himself or how the prophet صلى الله عليه و سلم has described Him. And one should not go beyond the Quran and sunnah in this regards.

Islam and the false argument fallacy of ‘equivocation’

Was studying about argument fallacies and came across the fallacy of ‘equivocation’ (definition and examples below)
It made me reflect upon some media outlets and politicians who are almost working insidiously to create a new sense for the words ‘terrorist’ and ‘terrorism’.
In fact in the minds of the masses the word terrorist has virtually become a synonym for Muslim.


Interesting book on the rise of poverty in Britain 

Looks interesting:
“The big debates about social and economic policy in Western countries are shifting from concerns about poverty to a recognition that growing inequality is our fundamental problem. Stewart Lansley and Joanna Mack, who have been working in this field for a generation, offer a massively convincing analysis of this problem and the policies it calls for.”
(David Donnison, Emeritus Professor of Regional and Town Planning, University of Glasgow and former Chair of the Supplementary Benefits Commission) 
“Brilliant. A devastatingly shocking report. This is the book everyone needs to read – authoritative and compellingly readable.” 
(Polly Toynbee) 
“Indispensable. Analytically sophisticated as well as viscerally stirring.”
(David Kynaston, author of Austerity Britain, 1945-51) 
“Careful and hard hitting. The book leaves our politicians no excuses.”
(Richard Wilkinson, co-author of The Spirit Level) 
“Inequality is the biggest challenge of our time. This important book exposes the real causes of poverty in modern Britain and makes a powerful case for the radical change we need to build a fairer and more equal society.”
(Margaret Hodge MP, Chair of the Public Accounts Committee) 
“I remember very clearly my sense of elation when I first saw the material that went into Mack and Lansley’s enlightening, but disturbing research. Breadline Britain is a brilliant continuation of their deep engagement with the investigation of unacceptable poverty in Britain’s otherwise prosperous economy.”
(Amartya Sen, Nobel Laureate in Economics) 
‘a new book on poverty, Breadline Britain, deserves to be taken more seriously’
( City AM) 
‘Tells the stories of those who are voiceless. Stewart Lansley and Joanna Mack forensically dissect poverty… All politicians should be made to read this book’
( Independent) 
“Hard-hitting… researched and argued so carefully – and sensitively – that it is difficult to disagree”
( Times Literary Supplement) 
‘This book should be widely read and discussed especially by politicians and the media. It provides a panorama of food for thought on important issue of the day.’
( SBE (The Society of Business Economists))
