IIIT honored one of its late founders, Shaykh Dr. Taha Jabir Al-Alwani (d. 2016), with an October 23-24 seminar on the renewal of Islamic thought, a topic that he engaged with and pursued throughout his entire adult life, even when he was ill and confined to a wheelchair.

Held at the IIIT headquarters in Herndon, VA, this event celebrated his original and sometimes provocative contributions to Islamic jurisprudence, in which he had earned a PhD from al-Azhar (1973), most notably his establishment of a new discipline: a jurisprudence for minorities (fiqh al-aqaliyyat). Abubaker Al-Shingieti (executive director, IIIT), Hisham Altalib (president, IIIT), Ermin Sinanović (director of research, IIIT), Saber Al-Kilany (library director, IIIT), and Zainab Alwani (Howard University) welcomed the attendees.

Sinanović referred to Shaykh Taha as a traditionally trained scholar who understood modern realities. Al-Kilany, who had a long-term working relationship with him, remarked upon his humility, sense of humor, and concern for others – even children. His daughter and long-time pupil Zainab Alwani spoke on a usually ignored area: how well he fulfilled his responsibility as a father who would discuss matters of religion with his children instead of demanding unquestioning obedience.

The first keynote speaker, Azizah al-Hibri (University of Richmond and KARAMAH), recalled Shaykh Taha’s attitude that “it is better to think and be wrong than not to think at all” and his constant urging of others to engage in critical thought. Among many other important points, she praised him for his role, along with Dr. Seyyed Hossein Nasr, in refuting a Muslim group’s claim that the Supreme Court’s depiction of the Prophet in its frieze of humanity’s lawgivers was idolatrous and therefore had to be destroyed.

Alhamdulillah, dua aktivis helwa Angkatan Belia Islam Malaysia (ABIM) telah ke Amerika Syarikat, membentangkan kertas kerja; iaitu Sdri. Fatin Nur Majdina (Exco ABIM Pusat dan Tutor di Universiti Malaya) serta Sdri. Hasliza Mohd. Ali (Ketua HELWA ABIM Tanjong Karang dan Pensyarah di UNISEL). Mereka mewakili ABIM dalam program "Renewal of Islamic Thought: Contemporary Issues (Conference in Honor of Shaykh Dr. Taha Jabir Alwani)". Tajuk kertas kerja mereka ialah "An Analytical Study of Taha Jabir al Alwani’s Thoughts and Contributions on Islamic Movement: ABIM’s Experience". Program berlangsung pada 23-24hb Oktober 2017, di International Institute of Islamic Thought (IIIT), Herndon, VA, Amerika Syarikat.                                                    

Terdahulu, mereka turut membuat kunjungan ziarah serta konsultansi bersama Prof. Dato' Dr. Siddiq Fadzil (mantan Presiden ABIM dan WADAH); Ustaz Dr. Md Nur Manutty (mantan Presiden ABIM); Ustaz Dr. Kamil Majid (antara tokoh yang mengkaji pemikiran Dr Taha Jabir Alwani dalam penulisannya); serta Prof Madya Dr. Zulkifli Hasan (mantan Exco ABIM Pusat dan Dekan Fakulti Syariah dan Undang-undang USIM). Semoga banyak manfaatnya program ini, dalam memberi manfaat kepada gerakan dan Ummah. Bersama menegakkan kebenaran dan keadilan. Ayuh, sejahterakan Malaysia dengan dakwah!
