Le Qurʾān vu par Ṭabarī

« (...) al-Ṭabarī doit l’essentiel de sa gloire à deux ouvrages, son Taʾrīkh al-rusul wa l-mulūk wa l-khulafāʾ, et le Jāmiʿ al-bayān ʿan taʾwīl āy al-Qurʾān. Le premier, sorte d’Histoire universelle, traite du récit des Hommes dans un cadre...

🧵Guess many may suddenly be interested in knowing more abt #Muslims & #Uyghurs in #China.
So, I've decided to make this thread of videos of me interviewing those ppl across China in 2021.

Chinese Imam from Inner Mongolia on terrorism & Western countries "care" for Muslims.👇
Joining a mid-day prayer at a mosque in Bayannur. Qurans in multiple languages. #Muslims #China

Btw, I entered the mosque with the permission of the Imam, he was very welcoming, didn't mind me joining as a woman at all.
To respect their traditions, I decided to put a veil on.
Chinese #Muslims go on Hajj too? Yessss!

These Muslims all have done their annual pilgrim to #Mecca, they showed me the uniforms they wore representing the Chinese Pilgrim Group.

The Imam is so happy people know which country they represented when in Mecca.

Do you know the story of #coffee?

Sure you get it from Starbucks or grind it at home but its story was not as simple as farm to pot

The story involves dancing goats, Fatwa, babtization, kings, revolutions, patriotism, Beethoven

Coffee has a rich & troubling history

☕️ Thread
1/ 1st, the legend:

Legend has it that an #Ethiopian goat herder named Kaldi witnessed his goats gamboling after eating coffee shrub’s red fruit. Perplexed, Kaldi tried the fruit himself and realized the same effect on him. A monk witnessed it & took some of the fruit with him.
2/ Now, the history:

The coffee plant and fruit has been used for 1000s of years but it wasn’t until the 13 century when the beans were roasted, which sky rocketed its popularity. Coffee originated in Ethiopia but it was across the Red Sea, in #Yemen, it was first cultivated.

Today's #NorthAfrica and #HornOfAfrica forecasts follow.

Below a satellite picture this morning with all the Nile basins including the #Abbay/#BlueNile in #Ethiopia (where it passes through the #GERD) + White Nile, #Sudan, #SouthSudan, #Uganda & the states around Lake Victoria.
10 day rainfall forecasts from the CMC, KMA, GFS and ECMWF models for June 9th through 19th.
A few animations. This one is connected to the separate tweet threads about #EuropeBigWet, which appear to be being driven by Jets of wet air coming off the Atlantic and crossing the Sahara into Europe.

This animation shows a jet crossing Libya and pumping water into Georgia.

We have a shift to on-shore westerly wind in the Horn of Africa region today, which, I confess means little to me beyond being a new thing in the data. But it seems significant, as there is more water over the sea.

Today's rainfall/cyclone forecasts for the region follow.
Here's a view from this afternoon & the direction of travel is pretty stable. For me onshore winds bringing wet air towards mountains means lots more rain. If anyone is aware of the usual timing of this switch I would be interested.
Here are African 10-Day Accumulated rain forecasts. All of which now show the impact of the two Cyclones which are now in the forecast window.

#SaudiArabia #Mecca #Coronavirus #Umrah

Saudi Arabia wants to gradually allow the Muslim Umrah pilgrimage again under strict conditions after a seven-month Corona break.
The second largest pilgrimage after the so-called #Hajj was banned at the end of February due to concerns about the spread of the corona virus. As of Sunday, the small pilgrimage should initially be feasible again for believers who are in the country,
said the Saudi Interior Ministry, as the state news agency SPA reported. The small pilgrimage to the city of Mecca, which is holy for Muslims, is recommended for devout Muslims. In contrast to the great pilgrimage (Hajj), the Umrah can be performed at any time.

Stunning photo from this year #Hajj in #Mecca, in the era of #coronavirus and social distance!
Bravo #SaudiArabia Image
And here is the video from socially-distanced hyistoric #Hajj
#SaudiArabia changed all the Kaaba dressings ( Kiswa), per the Kingdom #coronavirus safety protocol.
This Year’s Hajj is unique in so many aspects.
I wish I was in Mecca! ImageImage

जय श्री राम।
I don't usually make threads but here are my two cents on the #RamMandir & #FaizKhan controversy:

We can't deny that Sir KK Muhammad fought for truth all his life against Jihadis & has greater contribution than most Hindus, specially like Rajeev Dhawan & DN Jha. (1)
Also, the role of political parties has been instrumental.

While BJP, as vidharmis always said "Tareekh nahi batayenge" never gave a date yet amidst all the criticism even from patrons about it just being votebank topic; clinged firmly & believe it or not, strengthened cause.(2)
Few others supportered, notable was Shivsena under Balasaheb Thackrey who openly endorsed #RamMandir & called demolition of #BabriMasjid

But list of opposing parties is long: Congress, SP, RJD, DMK, AAP and so on. Congress under #AntoniaMaino even claimed Ram as fictitious.(3)

It's hard to capture the absence of activity. How do you show something that is missing? These wonderful @reuters pictures do just that.

Get to know #MECCA The Muslim Educational Cultural Center of America & its Extremism
Yet another Muslim group in America growing by leaps & bounds claiming to be that peaceful innocent “religion” when indeed they condone, promote & teach radical Islam.…
⚠️MECCA claims that its goals are "to guide young Muslims””build bridges of understanding w/ other cultures & faiths" Yet the Chicago-area mosque's willingness to promote hate preachers & anti-Semitic demagogues reflects the continued influence of its Islamic founders & leaders.
⚠️ But a man is known by the company he keeps. On September 20, the MECCA Center hosted Imam Zaid Shakir, who delivered the Friday sermon. Shakir's writings and speeches show a man prone to conspiracy theories and extremism.

THREAD @KingSalman at emergency #Mecca Summit: The Iranian regime’s interference in the internal affairs of the countries of the region, development of nuclear & missile programs, and its threats to freedom of international shipping, is a threat to the security of the world.
“We call on the international community to shoulder its responsibilities regarding threats posed by Iran...and to use all means to stop the regime from interfering in the internal affairs of other countries. And its sponsorship of terrorist activities in the region.”
“It should be noted that the failure to deter and confront the subversive activities of the Iranian regime in the region is what allowed it to continue and escalate in the way we see today”
