Reading Bruce Chatwin's Songlines where he describes how the songlines work amongst the aborigines of Australia, creating a spiritual network of Australia based on individual totems and their narratives. not only do we, therefore, have religion, but also psychology, geography and its symbolism (I recently read a Muslim writer who claimed the latter for Islam) but a sense of knowledge connected to both individuals and tribes.
Does this reach back in time thereby representing a means of transmitting knowledge over a long distance but also preserving it?
Islamic Psychology is a new field combining Islamic Studies and Psychology in an effort to Islamize the field of Psychology to fit Islamic practicing Muslims' [whatever the sect they affiliated to as the umbrella that covers Islam and Muslims are very vast, wide and colourful diversity] needs. It was founded by the late Prof. Malik Badri Babiker who was based in International Islamic University Malaysia (IIUM) for a very long time away from his home country in Sudan since he first experienced dissonance between being a Muslim practicing Western psychology in his study days more than a half century ago.
Alhamdulillah, it was progressively developing as he would wish to see and more but the journals that the associations that advocate this budding field are new like established in 2018, thus, commonsensically still not indexed in Scopus list yet like those under International Association of Islamic Psychology and International Association of Muslim Psychologists. Even the mother journal of all Islamization efforts that was championed by International Islamic Thoughts (IIIT), which is previously named American Journal of Islamic Social Sciences, had to change its name into the American Journal of Islam and Society-AJIS [for no announced reason] also no longer indexed in the Scopus list [also without any apparent reason] although already established since 1984.
Most of the journals tried, had excused for a shortage of suitable/compatible peer-reviewers database who are multidisciplinarily able to see the Arabic language part being translated and the interaction between them in the interpretation of the Holy Qur'an, which some researchers in the social sciences specifically in Psychology considered it superstitious reverence to refer everything to it more specifically for those who were convinced with secular stance and lense of worldview in life. Thus, got high tendency of declining submission like it was being marginalized for being 'religious' in the beginning of the founding firmness of the late Prof Malik Badri on the dissonance of the mainstream worldview in practice to give freedom to the Muslims to feel fitting with what is practiced in living and believing.
So, what is our alternatives?
It takes time to reach the established level the Western had reached after the post-colonialism.

Dower goes from the groom to the bride. It is mandatory for Muslim marriages. In Murdock's Ethnographic Atlas, however, nearly all Muslim societies are characterized by bridewealth, which is different, as it goes from groom's kin to bride's kin thereby excluding the bride.
What is Islamic anthropology? is it a new discipline? or a sub-field in Anthropology? or Islamization of western anthropology?

If Subfield, then obviously, what is the line of demarcation with Anthropology of Islam of Islamic Anthropology?

The kalam, often rendered "speculative theology", was an important development in Islamic thought; ideas from the kalam made deep inroads into Jewish thought as well. Maimonides devotes a good part of his famous Guide of the Perplexed to a running debate with the kalam on a number of issues.

Zakat is the third pillar of Islam and it is an obligatory

The Waqf (confined endowment) was one of the foundations of Islamic Renaissance that has led to a wide activity in scientific, architectural, and health-care movements. It has also resulted the establishment of several institutions which were integrated and vital for the community. These institutions have worked on improvising solutions to new problems. Early Muslims have been racing to establish their own waqf emphasizing the peculiarity of the different goals of each one. This research aims to study the waqf of Abdul Basit ibn Khalil the Damascene (790-857 AH / 1388 - 1450 AD) the Chief-inspector of the Egyptian armies. And I have included in the annexes two of these waqfs.

Was the Lord previous to his son, or was his son before him,?
If you say: His father was previously . We told you: You have abolished the theory of the three universes . This means that the son did not manage the affairs of the universe with his father !!!
You have to answer the question: When did the father decide to have a child? And who ran the universe before he had his son?
If you say: the son was previously on his father . We told you: how to be the former son to his father ?!
If you say: they are together forever, we said to you: Who decided to make the father father?!!Who made the son a son?!And how to be a father and son without being one of them before the other ?!

Conference Paper "A Somali girl is Muslim and does not have premarital sex. I...First of all I couldn't access this article to comment further even though I tried in different ways but failed but finally I wrote of the co-authors and now waiting for her feedback. Going through the very short abstract that the authors displayed I could see one of the major themes extracted from their transcribed collected data was, "(1) perceived barriers to uptake of preventive measures: distrust of the Dutch health care system...". My question is why there is distrust as we can experience in different setting for example recently there were rejection of Polio vaccination campaign in Minnesota Somali community because they were afraid ( or thinking)of getting 'Autism' from Polio vaccination and if I am not mistaken this happened for the first time since Somali migrated to Minn. and it is the most Somali populated cities in whole America. Why there is distrust in such community where there are educated and skilled people in those areas? How an individual and later a whole community can perceive and share similar conception and thoughts against specified immunization or Expanded Program for Immunizaation ( EPI)?

The fertility of Muslims, which was about 10 per cent higher than that of Hindus before independence, is now nearly 30 per cent higher than the Hindu rate, and the difference according to religion is larger than the difference between the forward and depressed Hindu castes and tribes. While the lower level of contraceptive use among Muslims is the most important factor responsible for the fertility differentials, the use of contraceptives has increased faster among the Muslims in recent times. What could be the possible reasons for the residual effect of religion on fertility and caste on fertility and causes for these disparities in social and economic conditions ?

Halal certification is becoming more and more important. In the literature, especially research on consumers is intensive. However, it is seen that the researches on the enterprises are limited. Halal certification awareness levels of enterprises with supply mechanisms may have an impact on customers with demand mechanisms. It is useful to specify the relevant factors in this respect.
I have, off and on, had several run-ins with those who insist that "all the evils of the world" are caused by capitalism. I have tried to point out that capitalism in itself is not "unIslamic", and that a case can be made that it was in fact developed under Islam. Now people are saying that the fundamental problem is fiat money, and that this is responsible for everything (including plastic pollution)! They argue the relative merits of so-called precious metals compared with paper money, which they say has no intrinsic value. I argue that gold too has no intrinsic value - it has only the value that people ascribe to it at the time they choose to buy or sell it.
To cut a long story short, I have decided that I have to write a paper dealing with the way money developed under Islam. I need a sound and solid understanding about conventional monetary theory, and an equally solid understanding of current thinking about the Islamic systems. Is this something in which you are interested, or have looked at at all? Are you interested? Can you point me to any relevant papers?

Inspite of the fact that islamic banks are trying to commit with Sharia rules, that doesn’t mean that they are achieving islamic objectives, such as ending poverty, unemployment and the suffering of the poor people.

What are the main three controversies within Islamic theology that have stood the test of time over the centuries?
Who are the most historical representatives of each side of the controversy and how are their arguments for their positions understood by the standards of critical scholarship and philosophy?
In what ways have these controversies effected the practice and theology of global Islam up to the present day?
What are the most well researched textbooks in the English language that treat these controversies carefully without taking sides?
The issues in the conflict are longstanding. It seems next to impossible for either side, especially on the extreme, to even imagine a way that the conflict can be resolved. For the people of the region, it is one that must be addressed and one that the whole world watches.
In view of modern science, I realize that Adam could not have been the first human being. But was there still a historical Adam who served as the first theologically significant human being (i.e., the first one to represent the human race before God)? Or is Adam a purely literary character?
I am not a believer just an observer, but I have long relations with the Islamic world and I have noticed changes on the periphery of Islam, one being a greater willingness to discuss matters with other cultures, a less fixed approach, no matter recent developments in the Middle East (which itself can be seen as a reaction to globalisation), and also a re-structuring and re-embedding of Islamic ideologies through Western ideas.
I believe that with the present Moslem diaspora this is a crucial time for a religion that for over a thousand years has shielded itself from other cultures' views, claimed at times the superiority of its views as those given by god, and rarely engaged in mutual dialogue (others may not agree).
By "grace" I mean, the restoration of the relationship between God and man.
This question is aimed at our Muslim friends online - I want to learn.
