Abdulkerim-Gyula Germanus

          A few days ago, I read an interview with Yana Korobko the Ukrainian Orientalist, who became Muslim. She revealed a most important piece of news. She said, “Numerous Orientalist convert to Islam after years of study and research.  They travel to see up close and touch the reality of Muslims in their communities. The road to Orientalism will lead inevitably to embracing Islam, if the Orientalist isn’t afraid of the reactions of those around him.”

          The Hungarian Orientalist Gyula Germanus is one of those orientalists, who converted to Islam. The Egyptian writer Akkad has described him saying: “He is ten scholars in one.” How cannot that be? He mastered eight languages: Arabic, Persian, Turkish, Urdu, German, Hungarian, Italian and English. And has the honor membership of many scientific academies, including the Iraqi, Egyptian and Syrian ones. In addition to this, he is a member of the Institute of Oriental Research in London, and the Italian Mediterranean Academy of Sciences.  He has also been the Secretary-General of the Hungarian Pen Club.

asked myself Why am I a Muslim

I have often asked myself: Why am I a Muslim?
Am I a Muslim because I have been born to Muslim parents only? Could it be that the truth has been hidden away from me? Could it be that my faith is among those whose followers have been born non-Muslims?
The question rang in my chest for many years. However, every day I witnessed yet another evidence of God’s favors upon me.The greatest of which has been, I have opened my eyes to Islam. And God has guided me to it since the first breath of life has been blown into me as a fetus in my mother's womb. Allah says in Sura Al-A’raf, verse 43: “(and they shall say: “Praise be to Allah, who has guided us to this (felicity): never could we have found guidance, had it not been for the guidance of Allah: indeed it was the truth, that the messengers of our Lord brought unto us." And they shall hear the cry: “Behold! The garden before you! Ye have been made its inheritors, for your deeds (of righteousness).”

Muslims in the face of Secularism and Westernization

The title of this paper, which RABITA asked me to prepare, suggests a struggle between Muslims and the systems that embrace Secularism and Western Civilization. In fact the current global prejudice against Muslims, in the secular states and Western countries, confirms the existence of that struggle.

I dare say that for as long as Muslims remain disunited and without a central leadership, which upholds the fundamental principles of Islam, they will always face the effects of this conflict.

1. Introduction 

   Traditionally, the region described as East Africa was composed of three countries – Kenya, Tanzania and Uganda. However, the broader definition includes other countries such as Ethiopia, Somalia, Djibouti, Malawi, Zambia, and Mozambique.   Politically, today the East African Community is composed of five countries: - Burundi, Kenya, Rwanda, Tanzania and Uganda. In this paper, when we refer to the region called East Africa, we shall be restricted to three countries – Kenya, Tanzania   and Uganda. However it should be noted that we shall say about Kenya, Tanzania, and Uganda will in many ways be applicable to the other countries of the bigger Eastern African region with the exception of Somalia.
