When I was 7 yrs old, my cousin Sameera died from #leukaemia

She was 15 & initially we thought she had the ‘flu

There were no curative treatments in the 80’s & she sadly died

I was heartbroken

In our faith, people gather at the family home to pay their respects

After school, I would go & visit my aunt & cousins

The front door was always open

People would come & join in prayers

And I remember our childhood #GP , Dr Minwalla, coming after surgery

He wasn’t #Muslim but was very much our family dr & came every evening

He would come in, take off his shoes & just sit in the corner with a cup of tea

I remember his burgundy socks & sometimes he would smile at me as I said a prayer on little colourful beads

He’d stay for a bit & then head home

At the time, I thought this was rather special

And here's a quick thread about what I'm trying to do in this book: 1/
The book is about the approach of comparative feminist theology as an intervention into #Islam vs. #feminism debates. I outline a new approach that is in conversation with diverse religious feminisms, including #womanism, #african womens theology, and #decolonial theologies 2/
This book is also a response to #Muslim discussions of #egalitarianism, #equality, and the need for constructive positions (in addition to deconstructive critique) 3/

“So, creating so many things in your mind, developing something in your mind that ‘they might have done this thing or that thing,’ [is unnecessary]. As I just mentioned in my last sermon, yesterday’s sermon (11 March 2022), Hazrat Abu Bakr (ra) said to the army...
“that ‘whatever food is given to you by the local people, you say بسم الله الرحمن الرحيم and eat it.’ So, instead of going into a detailed investigation and becoming curious about it, [thinking] ‘they might have done this thing or that thing,’ ...

The Report of Emory Niles & Arthur Surherland in U.S. National Archives.

"Although it is not directly related to our research topic, we saw that #Armenians perpetrated atrocities against #Turks at every point we passed from Bitlis to Trabzon."
"Although we were skeptical of the stories told to us at first, we were convinced after seeing the agreement in the statements of the eyewitnesses and the concrete evidence."

1- #Armenians massacred #Muslims on a large scale.
2- #Armenians are largely responsible for the destruction in villages and towns.

"#Russians and #Armenians occupied the country together for a considerable time in 1915 and 1916."

@vivekagnihotri ji ,I am not a #KashmiriPandit Scholar but a #Dogra from Jammu but I am going to expose the lies spread by these communal people by means of a thread🧵exposing secularism of #SheikhAbdullah.
Books from which I have complied thread are in last Tweet of #Thread n/1
#SheikhAbdullah was so secular that he raised an organisation called #Muslim Reading Room Group that had organised an inflammatory speech of Abdul Qadir inside Srinagar's Khanqah-i-Moula Shrine on June 21 1931 in which he began extolling #Muslims to shun #Hindu ruler of J&K.
#SheikhAbdullah was so secular that in 1932 ,he founded a party named Jammu and Kashmir #Muslim Conference in Srinagar that was named after a religion and not region .

The table below shows the death estimates made by different researchers between the #Armenians who were forced to migrate during the WW1,and the Turks/Muslims who were forced to migrate in the same time period as a result of the #Armenian massacre.

According to Justin McCarthy, between 1912 and 1922, two and a half million (18%) #Muslim population died in #Anatolia. The number of #Turks who lost their lives in the eastern provinces is 1,189,132.

In addition to the massacre in Turkey, 413,000 Turks were massacred in the #Caucasus. When the 413,000 people killed in the Caucasus are added to the 1,189,132 people killed in Anatolia between 1912-1922,the number of #Turks killed reaches 1,602,132.

مسجد نبویﷺ کی تاریخ
مدینہ (سعودی عرب)__622ء
(Al-Nabvi Mosque, Madina Saudi Arabia)
مدینہ منورہ کے قلب میں واقع مسجد نبویﷺ مسجدِ قباء کے بعد دوسری بڑی مسجد جو مسلمانوں کے آخری پیغمبر محمدﷺ کے گھر کا صحن تھی۔
مسجد کی تعمیر 7 ماہ میں مکمل ھوئی۔ سنگ بنیاد آپﷺ نے
اپنے اصحاب کیساتھ مل کر رکھا۔ کچی دیوار کی ایک چھوٹی عمارت جس کی پیمائش تقریباً 30.5 میٹر × 35.62 میٹر (100.1 فٹ × 116.9 فٹ) تھی۔
مکہ کے بعد مسلمانوں کیلئےدوسرا مقدس ترین سمجھاجانے والا مقام دراصل دو یتیم بھائیوں سہل اور سہیل کی کہانی بیان کرتا ھے۔ یہ زمین انکی ملکیت تھی جو انہوں
نے بطور تحفتاً رضاکارانہ دے دی۔
ابتداء یہ ایک ھوا دار عمارت تھی جسے کمیونٹی سنٹر، کورٹ آف لاء، قرآن کی تدوین اور روحانی اسکول کے طور پر استعمال کیا جاتا تھا۔ محمدﷺ کے لیے جمعہ کے دن خطبہ کے لیے ایک منبر یا چبوترہ بنایا گیا۔
عہد نبویﷺ میں اسکے تین دروازے تھے__رحمت کا دروازہ، گیٹ

Since all skilled #Muslim men were in the army,it was easy for the #Armenians to horribly massacre the defenseless Muslim inhabitants of the area.
They simply cleared out the Muslim inhabitants of those areas."

General Schellendorf,Deutsche Allgemeine Zeitung,24 July 1921
"The Minster of the Interior was Talaat,and he had to make the decisions and give the directives.The Army was in its most vital stage of fighting.The Moslem inhabitants were fleeing from the terror of the #Armenians."

"A witness for Talat Pasha"
General Bronsart von Schellendorf
Talat was not a thoughtless murderer, but a visionary statesman. He hoped that they would move away from Russian influence and Kurdish conflicts between now Russian-influenced Armenians and citizens who had dreams of a Greater Armenia but were very useful in quieter times.

1. In recent weeks, #Saudi opposition, linked to extremists & to #Qatar, including Lina Al-Hathloul have been trying to once again draw attention to Loujain Al Hathloul in an effort to renew the view of her as a victim a year after her release.…
2. As a reminder Loujain Al Hathloul once campaigned for women's rights to drive but once #MBS came to power and this form of lobbying & activism became irrelevant, switched to propaganda against #KSA on foreign channels in exchange for funding & fame.
3. Al Hathloul, after repeated warnings, was eventually tried & convicted for violations of relevant laws similar to the US Foreign Agents Registration Act (#FARA), which also carries criminal penalties depending on the extent of violations.

Many people have been asking me to suggest books on history of South Asia under #Muslim rule. While there are many authors whose books can be suggested, here is a list of books by Richard M Eaton. His India in the Persianate Age is a must if you want to study late medieval period Image
Richard Eaton's 'A Social History of the Deccan 1300 - 1761 (Eight Inddian Lives) is another must read if you were interested in the social History of Deccan that was largely ruled by different Muslim dynasties. From Gesu Daraz to Tuka Ram, it is a fascinating book. Image
Eaton's 'Power, Memory, Architecture: Contested Sites on India's Deccan Plateau' is a must if you wanted to know power dynamics outside big power centers. It examines political histories and material culture of smaller, fortified strongholds both on the plains and atop hills Image

A thread on the #hijab controversy.

1. Until now, I hadn't commented on #Karnataka #hijab row. Conscious tht d issue was abt politics, neither religion nor young girls' right to wear hijab to college, I didn't have clarity of my position. Now I have. But first, a few questions
2. Has there been any incident in any part of India where #Muslim men wanted to attend classes in a particular dress, say a skullcap? Why is the responsibility of upholding religious identity only Muslim women's? Who is telling these women tht their identity & d right to fight
3. For tht identity more imp than their future? Why is no one finding it disturbing tht fathers of some girls r saying tht if college doesn't relent, they will not allow their girls to study further. Let their future b ruined? Y r parents not moved by d sight of desperate girls?

#Udupi Another #Hijab row breaks out at Government college in #Kundapura. Management under the new state guidelines has asked girl students not to come college wearing hijab. Girl students refused. Then several #Hindu boys came to college wearing #saffronshawls (1/2) #karnataka
A meeting was also conducted by management along with local MlA with parents of the students. A parent of the girl student can be heard saying we didn't discriminate. We sent our students during all the #hindu festivals. Why is that you are discriminating with out students (2/2)
#Update:#HijabisOurRight Principal of the #Kundapura college didn't allow #Muslim girl students wearing #Hijab inside campus.Students argued- is it fair to do this two months before the exams? Why are you ruining your future? These rules should have been made earlier. Why now?

If you tuned into the Senate Judiciary hearing on closing #Guantanamo, led by Senator Dick Durbin in #December, you might have noticed that the word #Muslim was only mentioned once.

Thread & my op-ed in @MiddleEastEye below.…
The failure to explicitly confront the role of #Islamophobia in the existence of Guantanamo Bay & the use of torture demonstrates a willful neglect of the fact that neither would have been possible without the dehumanizing logics of Muslims in the War on Terror.
Rather than exhibiting any concern for the Muslims lives that were destroyed by detention at the notorious prison that is Guantanamo, the mainstream discourse prioritizes closing Guantanamo in order to restore the US’ reputation as a country that adheres to the rule of law.

Is the #Ahmadiyya Muslim Community a new #religion?

Hazrat Amirul Momineen, Khalifatul Masih Vaa was asked various questions about Ahmadiyyat. Huzoor atba, in a letter dated 23 March 2020, gave the following reply to those questions:
“[…] As far as the #Ahmadiyya Jamaat is concerned, it is not a new religion; rather, it is the true community of #Islam which #Allah the Exalted has established in exact accordance with the prophecies of the Founder of Islam, the #HolyProphet Muhammad saw, the Chosen One. (2/8)
“Just as #Allah the Exalted sent prophets in different regions and at different times for the reformation and betterment of the world and revealed teachings to them to guide the people in the past, He also sent our Master and Guide, the #HolyProphet Muhammad saw,...(3/8)

Meanwhile, in #Pakistan, the country's political+military leaders are held hostage by extremist Islamists, literally forced to reconfirm their allegiance to Islam! The hordes threaten to storm the capital. Perfect script for a historical drama reliving 11th century in 21st. #TLP
...meanwhile, in #Islamabad, which resembles #Baghdad just before the Mongols stormed it. [Or #Rome as Nero fiddles]

Reported divisions within PM #ImranKhan Govt on how to deal with banned #TLP religious group threatening to storm #Pakistan capital #Islamabad. Meanwhile, discontent inside Punjab Police, where officers believe Govt and state abandoned them before religious extremists.

Sejarah hubungan Eropa dan dunia Islam tak melulu antagonistik. Ada zamannya, ilmuwan-ilmuwan, pemikir, dan sastrawan Eropa belajar banyak dari rekan-rekan Muslim mereka, tradisi yang kemudian memicu zaman ilmu pengetahuan dan teknologi yang kita jalani sekarang.
Fibonacci dikenal sebagai pionir matematika dari Italia. Jarang diketahui, buku terkenalnya, Liber Abacci bergantung sepenuhnya pada karya Al Khawarizmi. Melalui Fibonacci, Eropa akhirnya menggunakan angka Hindu-Arab yg sudah populer di dunia Islam sebelumnya. #KhazanahRepublika
Bacon disebut sebagai bapaknya empirisme dalam ilmu pengetahuan. Faktanya, dalam bukunya Opus Majus, pendeta ini mengaku belajar dari Ibn al Haytham soal optik dan empirisme, serta dari Ibn Rushd dan Ibn Sina soal filosofi.

The findings show an absence of a systematic and coordinated plot to take over these schools and an absence of any concerted and deliberate plot to promote radicalisation and violent extremism of Muslim children in these schools or elsewhere

language used to talk about the issues of “radicalisation” & “extremism” is itself the subject of considerable debate (Kundnani 2012; Lynch 2013). There is also a difficulty in understanding fully these issues cos there is a lack of an objective or universally accepted definition
As soon as the media took hold of the allegations, there was huge publicity about the promotion of extremism, radicalisation & terrorism.
At the time, the press also expressed many irrational anxieties about these Muslim majority schools (Arthur 2015). Even though, from the

‘The Trojan Horse Scandal and the Problem of Equalities in Britain Today’.

The event examined the scandal from a broad range of perspectives, engaging with debates on #equalities, #liberalism, and #Britishness.…
It also provided an opportunity to discuss and generate a dialogue about the significance of the 'Trojan Horse’ scandal and the duty placed on schools after the scandal to promote Fundamental British Values (FBV) in the promotion of #democracy.
Speakers analysed how both are reproducing narratives of racial discrimination & inequalities in a context that is informed by minoritising communities, #problematising specific religious #values, & essentialising the signification of social, religious, & cultural identities.
