  • Remaking society from within: An investigation into contemporary Islamic activism in Nigeria

    AbdulGafar Olawale Fahm (Elsevier, 2020-07-01)
    The changing roles of Muslim organisations in the dynamics of public relations in Nigeria can be appraised in the light of the recognition of the growing importance of religious associations across the country and within the framework of discourse on society, religion, and activism. This study investigates the meaning and practice of Islamic activism in Nigeria and how it affects socio-religious and national development challenges in remaking Nigeria. Drawing empirical evidence from the activities of Muslim organisations in the country through a qualitative and quantitative approach, the findings revealed how a localised and socially embedded construct of Islamic activism practices seen among Muslim organisations in Nigeria affirms organisations’ responses to the socio-religious reality of the country as well as development.

    Siti Suriani Othman; Fauziah Hassan; Safiyyah Ahmad Sabri; Liana Mat Nayan (Universitas Islam Bandung, 2020-07-01)
    This paper discusses about fake news from the Islamic perspective. Derived from previous scholarly discussions and Islamic manuscripts on fake news, this paper attempts to provide what Islam has to say about fake news. The discussion starts with scholarly literature about fake news to understand the concept of fake news, followed by the issue of fake news in news sourcing. More emphasis is given to online news due to the fact that fake news emerges abundantly and easily on online platforms than before. Besides that, the role of technology in reducing or/and increasing the threat of fake news in modern communication is also discussed. The final part of the paper discusses specifically on fake news from the Islamic perspective.
