Writing Theses and Academic Articles

“Writing Theses and Academic Articles” is directed to graduate students and young academics who are willing to make a contribution to the scientific community.

The book is both a practical guide for structuring and editing academic material and a reflection from the authors about the situation of Muslim scholarship.

While for much of its history, Islam has been at the forefront of knowledge, nowadays, social, economic and political circumstances seem to hinder many young Muslims from achieving academic excellence. The authors hope that this book will be the first step, theoretically and practically, for helping in the renaissance of Muslim scholarship.

Risky Paths to Success

Hopes of a brighter future, better opportunities and financial freedom are just a few of the empty promises that human traffickers make to lure trusting Gambian youths into abandoning their families and their homelands.

The reality is that a treacherous journey awaits youths that are duped into risking their lives for nothing more than broken promises and blatant fabrications. The book “Risky Path to Success” is an eye-opening read that is a no-holds barred depiction of what really happens to youths who are preyed upon by human traffickers and become trapped in a merciless cycle of exploitation.

Most importantly, it provides sensible life lessons to inspire youths to become successful on their own merits, in their own country and without falling victim to traffickers who only care about their bottom line – money




We live in an over-sexualised culture where sex and sexuality have become part of the public domain. This sexual revolution challenges Judeo-Christian and Islamic norms and boundaries. As such, sexuality education is a sensitive and extremely important issue, and its current implementation in schools has raised public concerns. This book explores the subject, contextualising it within the matrix of Islamic beliefs and practices. Islam binds sexuality and sexual education to a moral grid with rights and obligations, justice and equity. There is a dominant discourse and stereotype around ‘Islamic sexuality’, which presents sex and sexuality as the biggest taboo, fraught with fear and seldom discussed. This book dispels such myths and misconceptions, providing an overview of sexuality education in the modern world and the need for such education.
