Islam InvulnerableIslam 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 from today?

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 nation-states.

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.
