This hadith explains that the Muslim Ummah will pass through periods when wickedness, sinfulness and immoral behavior will personify the norm of society, and the believers will find it extremely arduous to preserve their iman and paddle against the surging waves of the worldly trials and tribulations.They start to perceive notions such as a serious premarital relationship and a party replete with drinking and dancing as acceptable.The American culture glorifies Hollywood and all of this special kingdom’s “stars”; immersed in this environment, Muslim Americans intuitively start to follow these trends as they yearn for popularity and acceptance.Anas bin Malik (RA) narrated that the Messenger of Allah (PBUH) said, “There shall come upon th...

Stern, M. leGlay eds: La Mosaique Greco-Romaine, 269-90, Paris.Disruptive was the collapse of the towns, and consequent upon that collapse the disappearance of the romanised economy and the society and culture that depended on that economic underpinning.By setting Britain in the context of the end of the western empire we may pick up and develop two of the themes outlined.

As a result, even though Britain recognized the damage opium had done in China, she failed in her moral and legal duty not to encourage or participate in smuggling opium into China, especially after it had been banned in Britain... During the 18th and early 19th centuries, the Chinese culture projected a face of indifferent arrogance and contempt for foreigners which included the bland assumption of Chinese cultural superiority.According to CNN, China’s defeat led to an invasion of Western culture, and on China’s doorstep, ‘barbarians’ lived in grand houses.Though Britain had traded with the Chinese for many years, China declined to establish any formal diplomatic contacts because it did not perceive Britain as equal (Rodzinski, 1984).O...

Hence we can understand that since the very beginning, Muslims of the sub-continent were continuously subjected to discrimination and were not allowed to wholly practice or even form their culture, as the ruling elite were English.This transfer of one culture onto another, is what we call, cultural imperialism.When Pakistan was formed, it was thought that this would allow the Muslims to live freely and independently of any western or external influences, but sadly, this was not the case.Organizations such as IMF and World Bank, have consistently imposed the western corporate vision, through structural adjustment programs, trade deregulation, reducing barriers to trade etc, and Pakistan, being one of the developing countries, was subjecte...

This backs the research by Hopkins, Nie and Hopkins (2004), who concluded that emphasis on quality management in the western countries like Britain remains to be a critical impediment to the entry and success of Chinese subsidiaries in the regions.On the other hand, Britain is located in Western Europe.Unlike in the past, most Chinese firms in the contemporary foreign business culture limit the number of expatriates and embrace language learning as a way of promoting communication and interaction between expatriate staffs and local staffs in their subsidiaries (Azolukwam & Perkins 2009).Merritt, A 2000, ‘Culture in the cockpit: Do Hofstede’s dimensions replicate?’, Journal of Cross-Cultural Psychology, vol.This paper has explored the cri...

This superiority gave Britain the extra confidence to advance into China.Examples of Western influences are apparent by the influx of Christian missionaries, and the construction of Christian churches and railways in China, in order to promote their ethnicity.In consequence, Britain deemed that it was their obligation, as a dominant nation, to bring sensibility, western culture and industrialization to a ‘barbaric’, uncivilized country, like China.The power supplied by The Industrial Revolution and the Western idea of ‘progress through change’ were Britain’s motives for colonizing China.silk and tea), its strategic ports and huge potential market intrigued Britain to want to gain these economic advantages.

As Naphy aptly suggests, the rate at which homosexuality has been integrated into mainstream culture should be judged within the much wider context of western civilisation over the past two thousand years as opposed to the forty years that have passed since the inception of the Sexual Offences Act in 1967.Hard-line Christian activists even went so far as to claim that the AIDS virus was God’s punishment to all society for allowing gay people the right to practice their sordid sexuality in mainstream culture.This sense of duplicity inherent concerning queer theory and socio-political reality in the contemporary era has served to render queer theory a doctrine of continuing importance in western culture.Thus, the very term ‘queer’ is seen,...
