The Islamic Monthly (new magazine)

The Islamic Monthly is an independent, U.S.-based publication that fosters public discussion on a broad range of issues and concerns related to Muslims in the modern world. The magazine was launched in January 2011 as an effort to create a forum for the free exchange of ideas, perspectives and opinions. We, at The Islamic Monthly, do not seek to be the sole voice of Islam or the Muslim community. Rather, the magazine is part of an ongoing experiment of a free Muslim press eager to build on the rich tradition of public discourse found in Islamic and Western history. We firmly believe that an honest discourse is only possible when we open ourselves to response, criticism, feedback and debate. In this spirit we invite our readers, supporters and critics to participate in this process.

Haroon Moghul's Upcoming Speaking Engagements: From Spokane, Washington, to Connecticut


My Guantánamo Nightmare by Lakhdar Boumediene

In 2008, my demand for a fair legal process went all the way to America’s highest court. In a decision that bears my name, the Supreme Court declared that “the laws and Constitution are designed to survive, and remain in force, in extraordinary times.” It ruled that prisoners like me, no matter how serious the accusations, have a right to a day in court. The Supreme Court recognized a basic truth: the government makes mistakes. And the court said that because “the consequence of error may be detention of persons for the duration of hostilities that may last a generation or more, this is a risk too significant to ignore.”
