A Film Screening of Hunza Story – https://www.facebook.com/hunzastory?fref=ts

Description

Hunza is an isolated land in the northern Pakistan and this is the main reason it is still able to hold on to its cultures and tradition, That is also the reason that it is one of the top tourist destinations in Pakistan. This story / travel log shows us a different angle of Hunza, It shows us the sights, faces and cultures through an uncommon perspective of a traveler / tourist who is new to Hunza. What he thinks, what inspires him and how he experiences are some of the main concepts that are shown. The experience of filming in northern Pakistan was a really good and adventurous experience. We literally went backpacking in this one. We pooled in just enough money to cover our food expenses. For lodging we had our own tent and sleeping bags and to tackle the transport expenses we took lifts from any passing vehicle e,g trucks, dumpers, vans, buses, local private cars. We wouldn’t be able to complete our journey if it wasn’t for the hospitable and helpful people of Hunza.

Women Scholars in Islam

The Women Scholars in Islam

This book is an adaptation of the Muqaddimah or Preface to Mohammad Akram’s 40-volume biographical dictionary (in Arabic) of the Muslim women who studied and taught hadith. It demonstrates the central role women had in preserving the Prophet’s teaching, which remains the master-guide to understanding the Qur’an as rules and norms for life. Within the bounds of modesty in dress and manners, women routinely attended and gave classes in the major mosques and madrasas, travelled intensively for ‘the knowledge’, transmitted and critiqued hadith, issued fatwas, etc. Some of the most renowned scholars among men have depended on, and praised, the scholarship of their women teachers. The women scholars enjoyed considerable public authority in society, not exceptionally, but as the norm.

The huge body of information reviewed in al-Muhaddithat is essential to understanding the role of women in Islamic society, their past achievement and future potential. Hitherto it has been so dispersed as to be ‘hidden’. Akram’s dictionary will greatly facilitate further study, contextualization and analysis.
