Introducing the Al-Mesbar Center

As part of its outreach to the West, the Al-Mesbar Center co-sponsored the publication of an e-book with the Philadelphia-based Foreign Policy Research Institute. A one-day conference to introduce the book was held in Washington in March 2013 -- the first-ever Al-Mesbar event in the United States. Joseph Braude introduced the Center to the audience.

Fatwas In The Gulf

A new study from Al-Mesbar Studies and Research Center in Dubai examines the history, meaning, and shifting landscape of fatwas in the Gulf states today. A fatwa is an "Islamic religious edict," increasingly understood not as binding law but advice from a "Mufti" (cleric) to a "Mustafti" -- (a Muslim seeking guidance). Scholars from a variety of perspectives provide historical context, country profiles, criticism of extremist elements, and a hopeful message about how fatwas can play a positive role in fighting extremism and fostering tolerance -- given encouragement and support from Gulf states and the public at large.
