Peace, one and all…
Welcome to the Islamic History Corner, Abdur Rahman’s blog on the rich, diverse and fascinating history of Islam.
This blog aims to share resources, papers, notes and other useful material on the study of Islamic history. In particular, given my own interests, I will initially be focusing on early Islamic history, which is roughly the first 400 years or so. Time and space permitting, material from other eras will also be posted.
All of the materials posted here are for public and educational use. They are free and are my way of giving something back. I also have another, deeper point. In the current climate of misinformation, misunderstanding and disputation I hope that this website will encourage more informed reflection and discussion, insha Allah.
Please feel free to use the materials here. I am always happy to answer questions and/or discuss specific issues more fully, time permitting. Also, if you have any useful resources, I’d be more than happy to post them here.
Please note, whilst I welcome and encourage everyone to comment and participate, I feel it’s important to lay a few ground rules. Comments of an insulting, racist, sexist, or otherwise abusive tone, will be deleted immediately without notice. I am a Muslim, and quite happy to be so, and so I will also delete offensive remarks. I’m an adult and can handle honest differences of opinion, but abuse in any form is wrong.
That aside, welcome to the Islamic History Corner. I hope you enjoy reading.
