Soon to launch are the academic journal entitled, ‘Journal for the Islamic Studies in Southeast Asia‘, and the book series entitled, ‘Islam in Southeast Asia‘. The publication projects will focus on theory, research and critical views on the state of theorizing, researching, and studying Islam’s relations to social sciences in Southeast Asia. The overall inquiry is whether Southeast Asian Islam is unique from that of Islams in the Arab, Turkic, Shi’a, Chinese, Indian or Western worlds.
Ayat az-Zaman Journal is a publication of the Institute of Islamic Studies, University of the Philippines Diliman. It is intended essentially as a forum for the discussion of Muslim societies and of Islam as a pivotal and dynamic worldview and way of life among Muslim peoples. Further, it seeks to serve as a medium for the creation of deeper understanding between Muslims and non-Muslims in order to advance the cause of peace and harmonious co-existence. The journal welcomes contributions that examine Islamic development in Muslim areas and other critical issues that affect Muslim societies, in general, and Muslims in the Philippines, in particular.
