  • Hi, quidley!
  • Yay!!!
  • quidleee poo!!!
  • Al-nunc...the scholar of Baghdad.
  • And, a very good entrance. Nice link!
  • Salaam, my peeps.
  • Muslims.. can't say I've ever heard of this lot.
  • Lovely post, fascinating info, but the site seems to be missing a vast amount of information with regards to Muslim heritage in Southeast Asia. Indonesia, which is rich with historical Muslim events, stories and architecture, seems to be suprisingly void.
  • Hey quid, how'd the antipope gig turn out?
  • salaam aleichem, nunc.
  • Great stuff quid, I enjoyed the article on the Muslim contribution to agriculture - I'd seen similar points raised in a history of Spain I was reading. Look forward to reading more, even if that old duffer Prince Charles seems to have a hand in it somewhere. Now the papacy's fallen through I strongly suggest you go up for Heir to the Throne. You'll eventually be Head of the C of E and obviously miles better than Charlie.
  • the site seems to be missing a vast amount of information with regards to Muslim heritage in Southeast Asia You make a good point there sugarmilk. I blames them goddam ay-rabs for hogging the muzie spotlight. Now the papacy's fallen through I strongly suggest you go up for Heir to the Throne Actually I put myself forward for the office of Queen in recent UK elections but mothninja and dangerismymiddlename wouldn't wote for me, the horrid beasts. salaam aleichem, nunc. Thank for my MoFishirt Abu Squid Ibn Ranch! Will post picture in due course. What's up with them crazy Muslim names, anyhow?
  • Welcome home, quid! Missed ye.
  • I have studied Islam for over 1,000 years, and there are no "pants" in this religion.
  • I have studied goetter for all of 12 minutes, and there is no religion in his pants.
  • That's because you don't know him like I do.
  • Nice site! It's got names like Pedanios Dioscorides of Anazarba and Abu-l-Faraj Muhammad Ibn Ishaq Ibn Abi Ya'qub al-Nadim al-Warraq al-Baghdadi; it's got to be good. And I join in the general welcomation; MoFi's not the same without you, ya Qidn├╗k.
  • Cheers, Quid. Interesting site. I think it's true that the historic Islamic contribution in many fields gets under-rated, and I'm grateful for anything that helps remedy my woeful ignorance. I think there's a danger here, though, of responding to Christian narrow-mindedness in an unduly competitive way - 'we had it first, you got it from us'. A mature perspective, I reckon, would recognise that the level of interdependence between the two cultures was always greater than either cared to admit - and that both were actually diverse and indebted to other influences too. Some of the achievements quite properly claimed as Islamic here also, I think, belong to specific local traditions with roots in Hellenistic or other cultures, for example.
  • Abu-l-Faraj Muhammad Ibn Ishaq Ibn Abi Ya'qub al-Nadim al-Warraq al-Baghdadi Hey! That's Mr. Abu-l-Faraj Muhammad Ibn Ishaq Ibn Abi Ya'qub al-Nadim al-Warraq al-Baghdadi to you! *touches quid gently on the knee*
  • This is rubbish. tee hee
  • Very cool link, bookmarked for perusal at a stage when I'm actually awake. And good to see ya, quiddy.
