Muslim culture represents the Unity of all the cultures influenced by common beliefs and practices. Islamic culture generally includes all the practices which have developed around the religion of Islam. Islamic Culture refers to the customs and traditions that Muslims follow in their countries. At Muslim Academy we will teach you what kind of clothes they wear, the foods they eat, wedding traditions and other aspects of their Islamic Life. In a religious sense, the Muslim world refers to those who adhere to the teachings of Islam, referred to as Muslims. In a cultural sense, it refers to Islamic civilization, inclusive of non-Muslims living in that civilization.
Here at Muslim Academy we will make sure to present an accurate and truthful image of Muslim culture and customs. Some of the greatest works of literature, art, and history have emerged from Muslim countries.
Currently, over a billion Muslims live in Europe, Asia, Africa, and North America, and though they speak hundreds of different languages and live in dozens of different countries, they still share a common Muslim culture. This culture is embedded in certain common beliefs that there is no God but Allah and that Muhammad is His messenger. Muslim customs and traditions are discussed on Muslim Academy as they include Islamic/Muslim clothing, food, wedding traditions and other aspects of Islamic life that Muslims have adopted in their respective countries.
The religious practices and beliefs of Muslims are all focused and circled around the religion of Islam. The Quran is considered to be the source of many aspects of Islamic culture. Muslim Academy offers you that chance to learn Muslim culture from a source other than the news. According to Muslim culture, marriage is, in the words of Mohammed, ‘half of religion’. The bonding of two souls in holy matrimony is looked upon as a legal bond and social contract. Festivals like Eid ul-Fitr, Eid ul-Adha and Lailat al Miraj are classic examples of the influence of religion in the lives of Muslim people.
In Islam Men are allowed to marry 4 women at a time only if they are sure that they will be able to be fair with all of them and treat them equally. Women are only allowed to show their faces and hands in public, but of course they can dress as they want to their husbands.
In respect of that diversity, Muslim Academy welcomes people of any background. We want to create a space for discussion and understanding, where students and teachers can question and exchange ideas about Muslim culture. In today’s troubled world, it is important to differentiate between what is truly Islamic and what is just culture as Muslim culture covers a wide variety of subjects. Many Islamic customs or traditions that are practiced today are not supported by the Word of Allah in the Quran or the teachings of Prophet Muhammad in the Hadith, but are simply local customs assumed to be Muslim culture.
