The future of this blog

As-salaamu Alaykum,

It has unfortunately been a very long time since I posted on this blog. I wish to return back to it in the near future.

A lot has gone on over the last year or so which left me in a bit of uncertainty about what I want to do, but now I’ve come to a firm decision alhamdulillah. Thankfully during this time I have come to know of many Muslims who are taking up apologetics and Islamic studies formally to respond to the new challenges Islam faces intellectually, as well as integrate modern philology, historical studies, archaeology and many other new fields into Qur’anic and Hadith studies. Just knowing this fact makes me really happy and is very encouraging.

What am I doing personally? I’m still continuing my BA alongside my vocational studies, hoping one day I could specialize in a useful topic. My primary focus (ie. major) is in Classical Syriac.

Onto this blog- it needs a serious clean up. As it currently stands, it is kind of useless. I’ll be going back and deleting my “study notes” posts which aren’t actually helpful to anyone. I’m still probably only going to be posting about things I’m interested in, and I don’t know how frequently new posts will come either. Some older posts also need serious updating: several seem to be very popular (relative to my other posts…) and it would help if I updated them.

For now though, I will have a few posts coming up on Hamiduddin Farahi’s phenomenal interdisciplinary tafsir, “Tafsir Nizaam al-Qur’an.”

  1. Assalaamualaikum brother, I hear you.

    My advise/request: please do not – if you can help it – delete those posts linked or reblogged by other blogsites. I know specifically, I’d linked a post of mine to yours on the Sana’a manuscripts because you had the most thorough yet succinct post on this topic that I could find, mashaAllah.

    Of course, it is ultimately up to you.

    May Allah reward you for your efforts. Jazakallahu khairan. Wa salaam
