Description Throughout history man has always had a strong attraction for the occult and supernatural. In the past, high priests, mediums, shamans, secret societies, cults and religions were always there to satisfy this thirst. With the birth of industrialization and the evolution of modern science, there arose in the West an era of skepticism which relegated the occult to the realm of fairy tales and fiction. However, from time to time there have been upsurges of spiritualism.
In the past two decades countless gurus, maharajis, swamis, peers and representatives of Christian and Islamic cults have plied their wares among the present, impressionable generation of Westerners. During the last twenty years, in particular, the spiritualist wave has reached an unprecedented height.
In response, the movie industry has enthusiastically churned out a series of films about ghosts and demonic possession: The Exorcist, Rosemary's Baby, Possessed, Poltergeist, Ghost Busters, etc. Publishing houses have also printed a plethora of books on this subject. The basis for many of these movie scripts and novels has been extracted from a long tradition of Christian influenced literature on the occult. Belief in the spirit-world and diabolical possession of human beings has continued virtually unchallenged since the earliest of times in the East, especially in the Muslim world. Consequently, there has been very little recent literature written and published, especially of research caliber, in the Muslim world. However, in the last ten years, an upsurge of interest among Muslims about possession and the spirit-world has led to the republication of most of the classical texts on this subject and the publication of a few modern works.
There has also been a marked increase in the number of exorcists, especially among practicing Muslims. Orientalist literature on this subject, although relatively abundant, concentrates extensively on the folklore aspect of the spirit-world and demonic possession as it manifests itself in different Muslim lands.

Islamic Online University [ ] Philips founded the in Qatar in 2001.

When asked in an interview with author Berger about his statement in an earlier lecture that 'he did believe in the `clash of civilizations,` and that America was the enemy of Islam' he explains that he opposes the effort by 'globalized western civilization' to 'push.
Secular democracy. Down the throats of the rest of the world.' Philips has stated that there is no such thing as rape in marriage in Islam: [In] Islaam, a woman is obliged to give herself to her husband and he may not be charged with rape. Of course, if a woman is physically ill or exhausted, her husband should take her condition into consideration and not force himself upon her. In lectures and writings he has maintained that suicide bombers are unfairly criticized as they are not really committing the suicide that is forbidden in Islam, but are showing bravery in committing a military operation: 'When you look at the mind of the suicide bomber, it's a different intention altogether.
The [enemy] is either too heavily armed, or they don't have the type of equipment that can deal with it, so the only other option they have is to try to get some people amongst them and then explode the charges that they have to try to destroy the equipment and to save the lives of their comrades. So this is not really considered to be suicide in the true sense. This is a military action and human lives are sacrificed in that military action.
This is really the bottom line for it and that's how we should look at it.' Philips' ideas on suicide bombing made news after the website of Luton Islamic Centre, where a suicide bomber had worshipped, was found to carry a link to a lecture by Philips in which he made 'comments used to justify suicide attacks, and material expounding antisemitism and homophobia'. The chairman of the Luton Islamic Centre has said Philips' comments that were posted on its website contained errors and that it should not have been categorized as 'suicide bombings' because he was referring to military operations as opposed to harming innocent people. Philips stated in a 2010 interview that he believes suicide bombings do not comply with Islamic law. In an interview in Austrolabe, republished in Muslim Matters, Philips calls himself a 'moderate' and the claim that he is an extremist 'baseless'.
