I assume she is a modern day Jester. I still think my outfit was better though
By The Sultan’s Jester
My tragic and still unexplained suspended animation while in the Sultan’s service during the Ottoman Empire’s slow decline has been made all the more unbearable by the lack of any recognisable form of Islam upon my even more inexplicable rousing – Kharijites masquerading as ambassadors for an ‘Islamic State’, anthropomorphists claiming to be following the Salaf and a million other calumnies upon what used to be the religion of God – the pure Hanafism of my beloved Ottomans seems to be nowhere to be found. Of course, all of the so-called champions of the Muslims are happy to bask in the glories and diversity of this empire – yet they regard the very same empires’ dealings with non-Muslims, hadith and the Q’uran as heresy. I was informed by the bedevilled alchemy of this thing you call ‘the Internet’ that the descendants of the Wahhabi rebels we put down – this so-called ‘ISIS’ – have been in power for a mere three months and already stoned a woman to death for adultery. Yet we Ottomans failed to stone a single person in nearly eight hundred years of rule! So imagine imagine my surprise, as I prepared to slumber with the shaggy dog of anomie, at coming across this sole proud Hanafi! Could it be that he too is an unlikely relic of the Islam that once was? In that case let him know that the way of the truth is terribly harsh. As a wise man once said; the truth has many enemies and the lie many friends...
An honest, forthright talk about practically all of the controversies surrounding Islam and women: Asking questions others won’t, answering questions others don’t.
– Why is polygamy allowed in Islam? Is it really allowed?
– Do Muslims have sex with slaves?
– Just how important is Hijaab? Is it a sin to omit it?
– Is there such a thing as gender segregation in traditional Islam
– How much of this is from culture and how much is from the Q’uran?
Addressed from a traditional Hanafi Muslim perspective and virtually guaranteed to upset both modernists and puritans as well as most of those claiming to speak for Islam on any side of the discussion, this is probably one of the most shocking presentations on religion, let alone Islam that you will see in a very long time…
Sheikh Atabek Shukrov Nasafi is a noted scholar and specialist in Islamic aqeeda and theological sciences. Undertaking his religious studies at first in secret in Uzbekistan while it was part of the USSR, he has gone on to have an eclectic and comprehensive Islamic education all over the Muslim world.
Already a scholar when he arrived in the Middle East, he studied in Damascus under such luminaries as Mhmd Adnan Darwish, graduating finally from Al Azhar but only after having studied both in Medina and the wider region, for example under Sh. Uthaymeen (and numerous others).
He is currently based in the Northwest of England where he is the founder of the Avicenna Academy.
