Conquests and Dynasties. The Golden Age and the Decline. War and Politics. Science and Scholarship. The history of Islam is rich and long and fraught with moments of glory and moments of ignominy. Too often we think our history stops at the Seerah of our beloved Rasulullah (S). But immediately following his demise we had his illustrious successors. With Abu Bakr (RA) we had the establishment of our principles, with Omar (RA) we expanded our empire to the far reaches of the land, with Uthman (RA) we established our government, with Ali (RA) we learned how to deal with conflict amongst our own, with Muawiya (RA) we grasped the context in which our religion developed, and then so on and so forth until Islam in the world today. Our scholarship is not devoid from our politics, and our present is not divorced from our past. The discord of today is a remnant of the struggle our spiritual forefathers experienced – and they survived them. Let’s humanize our heroes and take lesson from our legends as we finally listen to history repeating itself.
