Viva Palestina reaches its goal to Gaza in a convoy bringing aids like wheelchairs that would not be available to the needy there after the onslaught of Israel on Gaza. It is particularly of importance to note what he said about Tony Blair, a non-representative of Britain but the people are, this group after their perilous journeyare. He ends with the slogan, ‘We are all Palesatinians…’

Another very significant fact remains that BBC said not a word about this great achievement as many believe it is ZBC!

As a journalist, a writer and an author, what better time to be than reporting milestones and significant events during the Fatimid Period or the “Golden Age” of Ismailism, when Ismaili Imams ruled over a vast empire and when Ismaili literature, philosophy and law flourished. It was during the Fatimid Period that the Ismaili scholars and authors produced what were to become the classic texts of Ismaili literature dealing with a multitude of exoteric and esoteric subjects. I think I might have made Ismaili fiqh (jurisprudence) my area of specialization, because it had not existed during the pre-Fatimid period. It was codified and became catalogued during the early Fatimid period. It was during the Fatimid…

When my parents visited me in Voorhees, New Jersey, during the spring of 1995, we would together walk to the main library twice a week. The short walk passed by scenic ponds and streams. There was a scary component to it though — encounters with scattered groups of unfriendly geese.

Once in the library, our focus was to read the Sunday newspapers from nearby cities that made their way into the magazine and newspaper section by Monday.

During one such visit, my dad found himself staring at the Baltimore Sun’s wonderful two page spread of Mawlana Hazar Imam’s first historic visit to Tajikistan, that had taken place a few days earlier. The June 4…

LETTER FROM PUBLISHER

Simerg's Merchant

By Abdulmalik Merchant

Muslim Harji, a regular contributor to this website and its sister blog, Simergphotos, says that his recent visit to Central Asia with his wife Nevin was the best trip of his life, surpassing the jouney he had made to Iran some time ago. His visit to Badakhshan, in particular, has resulted in a perfect blend of  photos which capture the region’s extraordinary landscapes as well as the wonderful spirit of the Ismailis, who have inhabited the Pamirs for centuries.

Upon arriving at the village of Rushan, we were greeted by children singing the Upon arriving at the village of Rushan, we were greeted by children singing the “Khushamudin song” — a welcome song. We were then escorted into the home of the Ismaili village elder. Photo: Muslim Harji. Copyright.

The inspiring life moments that Muslim and Nevin experienced in Badakhshan will be treasured by them for their entire lives, because the “priceless memories will never come again.”

While we prepare…

I am a new blogger! and refer to an article Why Liberals Fear Islam, it hits the neo-cons on the head! Indeed it hits the non-Muslim dominated Western World we live in, including Israel, much to my reluctance! They regard Arabs almost as sub-humans see the plight of Palestinians and the largest concentration camp in Gaza they have created!
Karen Armstrong’s book A Short History of Islam should be made compulsory in every school and university in so-called ‘civilised’ western world of ours, to see sense before they invade other countries and wage wars!
I also admire Tom Feeley and his ICH, Information Clearing House, a good source for non-Arabic speakers like myself. I shall explore more of these webs:
