Invulnerable: The Making of the Modern Muslim World
Despite the fact that the Muslim Ummah has degenerated
in relative material terms over the past several centuries,
Islam is incorruptible and impossible to harm. In other
words, Islam is invulnerable.
Why are Muslim societies relatively poor, politically disorganized,
and military weak? Why have Muslim societies, which were
once some of the most powerful, tolerant, and wealthy in
the world, degenerated to the state of affairs that we suffer
Most attempts to answer these questions focus upon only
one part of the Muslim world, such as the Ottoman Empire
or the Arab world, but neglect the reality that the Muslim
Ummah is a global community. This course is unique in that
it encompasses the global expanse of the Muslim Ummah, and
covers not only the Middle East, but also the Indian subcontinent,
South East Asia, Muslim Africa, Central Asia and the spread
of Islam to Europe.
The purpose of this course is to encourage Muslims to critically
examine their own historical tradition, and to promote a
more sophisticated view of the world, in the hope that this
will aid future generations of Muslims to more effectively
confront the challenges that face the Muslim Ummah.
The course is divided into four parts. The first part will
analyze the rise of the Ottoman Empire, the Mughal Empire,
the Safavid Empire, as well as the evolution of Muslim civilization
in Central Asia, Africa and South East Asia.
The second part of the course will examine the scientific,
military, and economic factors that contributed to the rise
of the European nations, and to the relative material decline
of the Muslim world, as well as the role that European Imperial
powers played in dividing the Muslim world into distinct
The third part of the course will focus upon the creation
of the modern nation-states of Turkey and Iran, and the
partition of India and the subsequent Indo-Pakistani wars,
as well as the articulation of the modern Arab state system.
Finally, we will critically examine the Arab-Israeli conflict,
and will cover the origins of Arab Nationalism and Zionism,
as well as the 1948, 1956, 1973 and 1982 wars. We will also
focus upon the Israeli New History, and consider what this
literature has revealed about the origins the Palestinian
refugee problem, as well as the ultimate consequences of
the Arab-Israeli conflict.

be turned back due to limited space. And if you delay your
registration, Shaytan will have one more chance at preoccupying
