A timeless, classic presentation that surveys the glorious Muslim past and analyzes the reasons why the ummah is failing to reach such standards of excellence today. On the campus of the University of Miami, respected historian and imam Abdullah Hakim Quick asks the audience to reflect upon Muslim achievements from the “Golden Age of Islam” in Spain to the more recent contributions during the “Age of Discovery” in the Americas. After revealing fascinating evidence of Muslim explorations and contributions to science and technology, the lecture focuses on the vital lessons that can be drawn from this history and what things about ourselves we must change today to reclaim the success of the past. The various topics discussed: names on the map with possible Arabic roots, Columbus’ encounter with Muslims, Spanish Muslim migration to the Americas before Columbus, Muslim African slaves, Melungeons as part of your lineage, Muslims melting in the “melting pot”, culture vs. religion, the marginalization of Muslim women, encouraging youth to take leadership roles, the dangers of extremism and dictatorship, the dangers of jealousy and arrogance, sincerity, superstition, nationalism, Farrakhan and the Nation of Islam, history from a “Euro-centric” point-of-view, and the difference between pride and dignity.
