36. Silent Rhapsody – Razan Al-Ali »

A slave in silence
I am all alone
Among those many other human beings
Whose love is sung
Out loud in every tongue
Solemnly
before sunrise

Events took place in Iceland earlier this year that directly put the country‎’s citizenry in direct opposition to their elected officials in regards to the liability incurred for the failure of the Icelandic Bank. In the aftermath, it is most exigent that the story, conspicuously dropped from the designated headlines of what is newsworthy, and therefore presented to the general public, be re-opened. The citizens of that country created a referendum by acquiring the requisite number of signatures, which was then voted upon by them.

Fulus is halal. It is known in the Fiqh and in the practice of the first Muslim communities (the Umayyads, who first minted Dinar and Dirham also minted fulus). We know its functions and its limitations in detail.
The name fulus comes from “follis” (plural folles), a coin made of bronze from the Roman and Byzantine tradition. Equally, the Arabic name Dirham comes from the Persian “drachma” (silver coin), and the Dinar from the Latin “denarius” (also a silver coin) although they were initially imitations of the Byzantine solidus which circulated in the Arabian Peninsula. The Roman word “follis” means bag (usually made of leather), which refers to a sealed bag used in antiquity containing a specific amount of coins.
