bold headlines But how do I begin to understand the forces behind them What we need is the news with context News for dummies maybe Except we re all dummmies How many of us understand the subtle differences between ISIS and Al ueda Or even Sunni vs Shia beyond the very basics Instead we turn that part of our brain off and think terrorist or evil But context is everything and without it we see

things happen instead of just that they happenHistory at least when you re talking about traditionally taught mainstream history ie history for the rest of us rather than history in academia is a specific narrative that gets stronger and homogenous with each generation simply by the power of repetition Every story has multiple sides to it any critical thinker knows this and yet when we re talking about our own story the story of humanity why do we only care for one side of itAnd because we re further from the original events we just parrot that main narrative that s passed down to us the one the victors wrote It s disturbing to me that as Tamim Ansary mentions in this book most history textbooks have only one chapter dedicated to Islam out of maybe 30 or 40 chapters Nevermind the fact that it is one of the most relevant threads of current events And even if that were not the case it is the basis for one of the largest most powerful and culturally rich empires in history rivaling the Roman Empire And even if that were not the case it is the second largest religion around 16 billion people we are ready to not think about And even if that were not the case it is than a religion it is uniuely also a community project and a political philosophyAnd yet I understand that impulse not to engage It s uncomfortable It s difficult It s messy and unresolvable Good resources are hard to find and often conflicting It s so much easier to look upon these parallel accounts as side stories almost inconseuential subsumed in our own larger story No it s not that we deny these narratives entirely but we look upon them as small parts of our story rather than something completely foreign That all past events have progressively lead step by step to our own existence as if we the storytellers are the ultimate goal and purpose of human civilizationIf you want to break out of that pattern then this book is at least one such parallel story that you could investigate Ansary focuses on the story arc rather than mundane details He is very good at conveying the general sweep of many parallel currents I learned uite a lot from this book including etymologies of several words and phrases that apparently have their origins in Islamic history The first few chapters about Muhammad and the four caliphates are the most straight forward and it s nice to be able to know not only their names but also have a sense of each one s personality uniue governing style and personal philosophy And that s very characteristic of this book Ansary takes time to familiarize you with the backgrounds personalities and tendencies of the people he writes about instead of just what they did and when Obviously as there are and schisms and offshoots it s a little harder to do that with

modern world is not I think best understood as a clash of civilizations if that proposition means we re different so we must fight until there s only one of us It s better understood as the friction generated by two mismatched world histories intersectingHistory is a narrative and narratives form our identities drive our actions For this reason Ansary s conclusions are uite significant He s basically saying that the Western narrative and the Islamic narrative are categorically different It s not simply that we ve left out some events It s that the understanding of what lead to this moment is driven by two complete different understandings of the world Thus when we look at the same current event we see the causes for this event to be two totally different things It s like we re a bitter couple each not hearing the other person in an argument but only becoming convinced by our own voicesHere are two enormous worlds side by side what s remarkable is how little notice they have taken of each other If the Western and Islamic worlds were two individual human beings we might see symptoms of repression here We might ask What happened between these two Were they lovers once Is

Destiny Disrupted A History of the World Through Islamic Eyes Summary ✓ 108 Read & Download Destiny Disrupted A History of the World Through Islamic Eyes We in the west share a common narrative of world history But our story largely omits a whole civilization whose citizens shared an entirely different narrative for a thousand yearsIn Destiny Disrupted Tam. History books are freuently dry and factual even when not written as textbooks and when they re not they tend to reveal the author s biases or axes to grind Tamim Ansary however sets out to tell the history of Islam through Islamic eyes not as an apologetic for Islam that ignores its less edifying historical episodes and its troubled present nor as a Westerner viewing Islam as at best an exotically misunderstood Oriental tradition and at worst the religion of terrorists and oppressed women in burkasTamim Ansary an Afghan American suggests that Islam and the West have for much of history existed in two parallel worlds only rarely intersecting until the violent last few decades The Dar al Islam or the entire region that Ansary calls the Middle World between the European dominated West and the Chinese dominated East grew expanded experienced theological and political revolutions technological and scientific and literary evolution and several foreign invasions much significant than those Crusades that everyone today thinks were the most significant East West interaction before the modern dayThe vast majority of Muslims even during the height of the Crusades simply didn t notice the West which for most of Islam s early history was an impoverished backwater land of savage suabbling kingdoms while the Middle East and North Africa was full of wealth and education and glorious cosmopolitan cities The Crusaders seized some cities and killed a bunch of people and certainly left some profound historical legacies but didn t materially affected the Islamic world as much as we think they didThe Mongols on the other hand they effed the Muslim world upI already knew a lot of Middle Eastern history from my time as an Arabic linguist for the Army They made us learn a bit of history and cultural along with the language at DLI But it was recited to us by Arabic instructors of varying levels of pedagogical ability and enthusiasm and came from very dry textbooks So I vaguely remembered the Ummayads the Abbasids the Ottomans the various Caliphates and Sultanates and Emirates that rose and fell from immediately after Mohammad s death until the 20th century when Muslim nation states began to congeal into or less their present forms But Destiny Disrupted tells the entire sweeping epic with a historian s accuracy but a storyteller s verve You will actually get caught up in the rise and fall of dynasties and the shifting epicenters of Islamic scholarship and Arab African and Persian power the changes in Islam as it goes from populist movement to institutional social paradigm to bureaucratic theocracy Islam is a complicated religion like Christianity with its sects and schisms and interactions with the power of the state Yes to Muslims religion has never been a separate entity from the state as it came to be in the West but still Islam served the interests of rulers got coopted by those in power brought down those in power caused fragmentation and changes in government according to different factions understanding of how a proper Islamic state should be run and so conflicts between clergy and kings did play out in their own way in the Middle East tooIf you want to have than a superficial understanding of how Sunnis and Shias split off from each other and why India has been the location of so much Hindu Muslim conflict and of course how the United States went from a modern nation Muslims admired and respected in the early 20th century to the Great Satan it is today yes a big part of the reason is Israel but that s not the whole story and most of the rest of the reason is oil but that s still not the whole story then you will get it here but as the title indicates this is a history of the world through Muslim eyes and so the West really only comes into the picture towards the end There is a huge amount of history that took place between Europe and China that most Westerners know little or nothing about and this book will not only tell you about it but make it interestingThe author s style is a great asset to this narrative Ansary is not above tossing in wry commentary now and then neither sparing Westerners nor Muslims from apt observations about historical hypocrisy and inconvenient truths Ansary does not take a religious position he grew up as a Muslim in Afghanistan but it s not even clear from his website whether he is a practicing Muslim today So he doesn t try to sell Islam and specifically calls out the historical revisionism of those liberal Muslims who today insist that jihad has never properly meant violent struggle against infidels Ansary points out that yes it has many times in history but neither will he satisfy those of an anti Islam bent who insist that Islam is fundamentally and inherently a religion of violence and oppression and intolerance of unbelievers Those who say that Muslims are incapable of peaceful heterogeneous coexistence in societies that value reason and democratic principles ignore the fact that such Muslim societies existed for centuriesIf you are a history buff and are interested in this little served area of history then I think you could hardly do better than Destiny Disrupted You will be truly educated about fourteen centuries of history spanning a huge chunk of the world It s a really good readIf you re looking for answers addressing contemporary issues how Israel came to be and why it s an unending canker sore to Muslims worldwide the origins of Wahabbism Osama Bin Laden s brand of Islamic fundamentalism the roots of the Taliban how the West came to become the Great Satan and what Iran s problem is and what Afghanistan s problem is and what Syria s problem is and what Ira s problem is and what Egypt s problem is

Destiny Disrupted A History of the World Through Islamic Eyes Summary ✓ 108 Read & Download Destiny Disrupted A History of the World Through Islamic Eyes Im Ansary tells the rich story of world history as the Islamic world saw it from the time of Mohammed to the fall of the Ottoman Empire and beyond He clarifies why our civilizations grew up oblivious to e. First a disclaimer I have a Master s degree in Middle Eastern studies and come to this subject weighted down by the suitcases of multiple theories and interpretations that advanced degrees tend to confer However I have long wanted to find a book that I could recommend to people by which I mean friends family and non specialized colleagues as the book for those wishing to understand the Middle East by which I and they usually mean to understand the historical context of modern events located within or connected to the Muslim world Destiny Disrupted is now the book that I will recommend but with an important caveat At the start of the book Ansary tells the reader that we should think of this tale very much as a story as if we met him in a cafe and this is the tale that he as an astute and knowledgeable historian might tell us over tea Well over two days worth of tea anyway since the book is long I think this disclaimer on his part is both wise and accurate With it he acknowledges that some oversimplification will occur He acknowledges that swaths of his tale are or might be subjective I was extremely impressed with his objectivity until almost the very end when I as something of a specialist myself felt that the explanations and retelling of 20th century political machinations in the Muslim world were oversimplified and slanted pro West For the most part Ansary does an admirable job of painting realistic pictures of individuals and events He is able to succinctly explain the pros and cons of an event or a political figure for example a uick summary of why some people may have thought X while others thought Y or that President X was celebrated for Y but hated by a particular ethnic minority for Z You get the idea However I found that this kind of just assessment was dimmed or even absent when describing the secular modernist leaders of Muslim countries in the twentieth century like Bhutto This is unfortunate since a nuanced understanding of these leaders and the revolutions or coups that toppled them is I would argue important to a useful understanding of the current geopolitical landscape than an emperor or imam of centuries past Even so I will certainly be recommending this book to family friends and colleagues alike with my own caveat that the interpretations of the last 70 years of history pertaining to Islam and the West leaves something to be desired and that Ansary reaches conclusions that don t sit entirely comfortably with me although they almost do All in all an impressive and much needed addition to the field
