About

This is an educational blog based on things that I read, stumble across and find moments to reflect upon. Not everything mentioned here is an endorsement or approval.  I am not interested in polemics; rather, inspired by the pursuit of truth. Wherever it may be.

Imam Abu Hamid al-Ghazali (d.505H) wrote, “I advise you, my brother, to have a good opinion of all people, especially the scholars. And it is part of having a good opinion of someone to look for the most positive possible interpretation of his words, and if you cannot find [one], then blame your own inability to find it [rather than him].”

(Abu Hamid al-Ghazali, “Haqiqat al-Qawlayn”, manuscript. Princeton University, Yahuda 4358, fols. 3b-4a, as cited in “The social construction of orthodoxy”, Ahmed el Shamsy, Cambridge Companion to Islamic Theology).

Hāroon is a student of the sacred sciences with a  particular interest in Economics, Mathematics, Education, Jurisprudence, Sociology, Theology, Traditionism (Hadīth), Mysticism and Philosophy.

Hāroon is currently undertaking doctoral research on the formation of British Muslim Scholarship and Leadership.
