Peer Talks with Leena Hashir | Podcast # 100
#PeerTalks with Leena Hashir   (Urdu) Leena Hashir is a known columnist and blogger. For her, writing was a process of self-discovery. She emerged on the scene a few years ago with her own blogging site. With time, as her lighthearted and satirical pieces gained popularity, she joined the Samaa TV network and started contributing her blogs to their Urdu website. She also wrote for the Saach TV website during that time. At a later stage, she joined Humsub.  Leena started with writing satires but gradually shifted her focus to highlight the tragic state of society. Her rendition has been heart-wrenching and touched the most sensitive chords. Her column on the killing of Aneeqa Khalid by her father just because she could not make her around bread highlighted the cruel face of our society. The column became enormously popular. A short film was made on that column that got a lot of critical accolades.    Then came her column on “khawaja saraa ka marney key baad apni maa ko khat”. The column was published on Humsub and broke all records. On the very first day of its publication, 100,000 read it on the website alone. It's sharing on Facebook was like a jungle fire. It was shared so many times that Facebook thought of it as spam and blocked it only to open it later realizing their misunderstanding. Its text sharing on YouTube crossed one million views in three days. According to a safe estimate, nearly 3 million readers have read it on social media and it has been appreciated globally. It is by far the most popular column in the history of Pakistan print and electronic media.  A film is currently underway based on this very column.     Leena Hashir is one of the most popular names on social media and her contribution to bringing to light the most sensitive issues has made quite an impact. She has succeeded in changing how people perceive and think about the marginalized sections of society. For her, that is what writing is all about.   #LeenaHashir #Interview Watch the podcast on Youtube https://youtu.be/so2D4CN8CMM

Peer Talks with Yaqub ibn Yusuf | Podcast #61
Peer Syed Mudassir Nazar Shah with Yaqub ibn Yusuf, The Mystic Bookseller of  Jerusalem.   Yaqub ibn Yusuf was born Joshua Heckelman into a warm and traditional Conservative Jewish family in Brooklyn, New York.   He explains; In my early 20s I pursued spiritual studies with Reb Zalman Schachter in Winnipeg, Canada, There I discovered "the archetype of the Tzaddiq", the inner and outer figure of the spiritual master in the Hasidic teachings of Rebbe Nahman. Following that through, I came to Israel in 1976 looking for a spiritual teacher and became the disciple of Sidi Sheikh Muhammad al Jemal on the Mount of Olives in East Jerusalem. From Sidi I received my Arabic name, recalling my Jewish father and grandfather. For seven years I followed Sidi's Islamic Sufi teachings and practices, but I couldn't get past the sense that he expected me to embrace Islam as a religion, although Judaism is my religion. I discovered the more broad-minded the world of Turkish Sufism and I studied, for many years, with Murat Yagan in western Canada - and I put together a book of his oral teachings which I've shared with various groups, over years: 'The Essence of Sufism in the Light of Kebzeh, the Teachings of the Caucasus Mountains. I later made a connection with a Turkish teacher of the Way of Blame of Melamet, Baba Selim Ocik, who lived in Istanbul. I came back to Israel in 1990 to pursue the academic study of Kabbalah and Hasidism with Prof. Moshe Idel. I found myself at home in the multi-faceted world of Jerusalem. In 1997 I opened Olam Qatan, based on the Kabbalistic saying, "Everyone is a 'microcosm'". My idea was to open doors for all kinds of spiritual seekers, religious and secular, Jewish, and people from other religions. For the last three years, I've down-scaled from a brick-and-mortar bookstore to a bookstall at Jerusalem's "First Station". I'm working on several projects of Hasidic and Sufi books   #PeerTalks #Sufism #MysticBookSeller

Sufism and Salafism in the Caucasus | Podcast #51
LOUD THINKING   #PeerTalks with Professor Alexander Knysh on "A Clash of Islams: Sufism and Salafism in the Caucasus"   The presentation examines the vicissitudes of Sufism’s recent history in the Muslim republics of Russia’s North Caucasus, the Russian Federation. Using this region as a case study, Alexander Knysh shows how Sufism’s role as “a mainstay of the international social order” (per Marshall Hodgson’s Venture of Islam) has come under critical scrutiny as well as verbal and physical attacks from a variety of quarters. Somewhat paradoxically, these attacks are motivated by Sufism’s former social, political, and cultural dominance in Muslim societies worldwide. Enmeshed deeply and inextricably into the very fabric of Muslim life, Sufism with its doctrines, practices, institutions, literature, and leadership structures has become a potent symbol of the status quo that reformers of various stripes sought to change or even to abolish altogether. The most potent challenge to Sufism’s doctrinal and devotional dominance has come from various Salafi-Wahhabi (“[neo-]fundamentalist”) movements. Does this “clash of Islam” represent a re-enactment, in Muslim communities worldwide, of the Protestant Reformation? Knysh will try to answer this question by using the Muslim societies of the North Caucasus as his case study   Alexander Knysh is a Professor of Islamic Studies at the University of Michigan and Academic Director of an Islamic studies program sponsored by the St. Petersburg State University, Russia. His academic interests include Islamic mysticism (Sufism), Qur’anic studies, the history of Muslim theological, philosophical, and juridical thought, and modern Islamic/Islamist movements from a comparative perspective. He has numerous academic and instructional publications on these subjects, including twelve books. His most recent books in English are Islam in Historical Perspective (London and New York: Taylor and Francis, Routledge, 2017) and Sufism: A New History of Islamic Mysticism (Princeton and Oxford: Princeton University Press, 2017). Alexander Knysh currently serves as section editor for “Sufism” on the Editorial Board of the Encyclopedia of Islam, Third Edition (E.J. Brill, Leiden, and Boston) and is Executive Editor of the Encyclopedia of Islamic Mysticism and the Handbooks of Islamic Mysticism series associated with it.   #Sufism #Salfism

Cheikh Ahmed Al-Tijani and Sufism in Africa | Podcast #25
#PeerTalks with Cherif Ahmed Tidjani (Morocco) on Cheikh Ahmed Al-Tijani and Sufism in Africa   Abū al-ʻAbbās Ahmad ibn Muhammad at-Tijāniyy or Ahmed Tijani (Arabic: أحمد التجاني‎, 1735–1815, was the Berber founder of the Tijaniyyah tariqa (Sufi order). in Aïn Madhi in Algeria, and died in Fez, Morocco, at the age of 80.   Tijani was born in 1735 in Ain Madi, the son of Muhammad al-Mukhtar. He traced his descent to a Berber Tribe, Tijani. When he was sixteen, Tijani lost both parents as a result of a plague. By then he was already married. He learned Quran under the tutelage of Mohammed Ba'afiyya in Ain Madi and also studied Khalil ibn Ishaq al-Jundi's Islamic jurisprudence works that were written under Malikite rites.[6] He also studied Abū al-Qāsim al-Qushayrī's Risala ila al-sufiyya. In 1757, Tijani left his village for Fez. While there, he joined three Sufi brotherhoods, the Qadiriyya, the Nasiriyya, and the tariqa of Ahmad al-Habib b. Muhammed. In Fez, he met a seer who told him he would achieve spiritual revelation (faith). Thereafter, he left Fez to teach at al-Abiad, spending five years at the village. In 1772, he began a journey to Mecca for hajj and to seek a Sufi way of life. During his journey, he was initiated into the Khalwati order at Azwawi. He later taught for a year at Tunis where he achieved some success. He left Tunis for Egypt where he met Mahmud al-Kurdi of the Khalwati order in Cairo. Tijani reached Mecca in late 1773 and performed hajj rites. In his quest to seek a Sufi way of life, he met Sheikh Ahmad Abdullah El Hindi, who rarely saw people except for his servant. He also met Abd-Karim al-Samman, founder of the Sammaniyya branch of Khalwati. Al-Samman told Tijani he will become a dominant Qutb (pole) or a scholar within the Sufi orders in the region. Tijani left Mecca and returned to Cairo where he got al-Kurdi's blessing to preach the Khalwatiyya order. From Cairo, he settled at Tlemcen for a couple of years.   Tijani later settled at Boussemghoun, an oasis seventy-five miles south of El Bayadh. It was at Samghun that Tijani received a vision from the prophet who told him to start a new Sufi order. He left his previous affiliations with other Sufi orders and claimed divine instructions from the prophet Mohammed. Tijani's order soon gained attraction in the desert regions surrounding Abi Samghun. Shaykh Tijani lived in Abi Samghun for about fifteen years. In 1796 he went to Fez, marking the real beginning of his Tariqa.   In Fez, Tijani was well received by Mawlay Sulayman, the Moroccan Sultan. Though Sulayman disliked other Sufi orders, he provided Tijani a house and appointed him as a member of his learned council. At first, Tijani chose the mosque of Moulay Idris to pray but performed the rites of the Tijani order in his house. Tijani later built his own zawiya. In Fez, he sent his trusted aides to spread the word of his order. Trusted aides such as Abu Hafs' Abdul-Rahman were sent to Oran and Algiers and Abdul-Salam al-Waghiri to Constantine, Algeria. Further muqaddams were appointed among learned converts including Muhammad Fuwadir al-Abdallawi in the Jarid district of Tunisia and Muhammed al-Hafiz in Mauritania.   #Sufi #AhmedTijani #Sufism in #Africa #SufiAfrica
