MFAS Journal

MFAS Journal is published bi-annually. The Journal currently enjoys a steadily increasing circulation amongst MFAS subscribers and registered students who receive it by paid subscription.

MFAS Journal provides the Faculty with the ideal media platform for dissemination of the high calibre political insight, economic analysis, cultural observation and intelligent investigation that reflect our declared intention to make a meaningful contribution to public intellectual culture and to project far and wide the penetrating and articulate voice of the Faculty as a leading Muslim think-tank.

In addition to the opportunity MFAS Journal provides for Faculty members to have ready access to a reading of key political and philosophical trends that is compatible with prophetic wisdom, it also offers individual members the not inconsiderable bonus of being selected for the annual MFAS Journal Prize of €750.00 for the published contribution which best meets this exacting editorial benchmark.

Editorial Policy

Each issue of the MFAS Journal contains contributions drawn from a range of currently active, credible and reputable Muslim authors and academics who are professionally engaged in higher education, teaching or research, and whose work, in the opinion of the Editorial Board reflects our preferred emphasis on the convergence of the soundest of Western intellectual tradition with the most penetrating of contemporary Muslim scholarship and insight with a view to producing a publication that will contribute to the dissemination of a much-needed understanding of the profoundest roots of the modern state and the systemic social, economic and political tensions that have arisen in Western society within recent decades, which remain a threat to civic stability, security and social cohesion. It is our aim as Muslims to generate well-articulated perspectives on every important aspect of the political terrain presented by the dominant Western paradigm, and to present an intelligible and reliable voice that will enable the emergent Muslim intelligentsia to enter the arena with a confidence born of cultural relevance, historical legitimacy and intellectual authority founded upon an effective combination between the Muslim and the Western knowledge traditions to assume a politically and philosophically integrative role, both nationally and internationally, and to offer a valuable resource in the face of contemporary challenges. Therefore, we are particularly welcoming of contributions deemed to fall within, add to or extend learning in the f ields of adab, siyar and benef icial knowledge, as explicitly set out in the official organizational literature that explains the aims and objectives of the Muslim Faculty of Advanced Studies, and which it is the foremost goal of MFAS to cultivate for the greater common benef it. Beyond this, given our practice of soliciting articles and contributions from different authors, MFAS does not accept ownership or responsibility for views that may be expressed by independent contributors to the MFAS Journal.
