Empowering through History
The Islamic History Project is an initiative founded on the belief that through reviving our connection to Islamic history we can empower Muslims of today. Islamic history has been widely neglected by Islamic institutions as well as western academic settings. This has created an identity crisis in Muslims living in both East and West. Our history defines who we are today, what we stand for and determines our direction.
Every nation must know their shared history to be truly united and empowered. As Marcus Garvey famously quoted, “A people without the knowledge of their past history, origin and culture is like a tree without roots.” Many of us grow up our entire lives never knowing the history of the Ummah beyond the Seerah.
The Islamic history project is an effort to bring to the forefront our stories of the past. We must teach the Ummah it’s successes and failures, and remind the world of the significant contributions Muslims have made to the world in which we live today. Reclaiming our past will help us to build our future.
We are dedicated to teaching Islamic history in an exciting and informative way to make this knowledge accessible.
