In the name of Allah, the All-Compassionate, the All-Merciful.
In the spirit of ushering Ramadhan, here’s a documentary by BBC on Britain’s First Muslim Converts. What’s jaw-dropping is that one of the Quran’s renowned translators, Marmaduke Pickthall (I’m sure you would have read his translations before, very olde English), was mentioned in the documentary…and that his great great niece discovered books written by him and so she went to track his story and have a different perspective on Islam as a non-Muslim.
Just spend 30 minutes to enjoy watching this video and get to know the struggles of early Muslims and Muslim converts. And how Islam actually progresses a society. Well, actually, once upon a time, Islamic societies were more progressive than Western ones but the nation has weakened right now.
And Allah is Al-Malik, the King. – MM
