In this informative episode of the Blood Brothers Podcast, Dilly Hussain hosts the erudite Ottoman historian Dr Yakoob Ahmed.
Dr Ahmed who is currently a lecturer at Istanbul University, explains what initially led him to study history as a postgraduate, and subsequently going onto specialise in Ottoman history, specifically the ‘Hamidian period’ (Reign of Caliph Abdulhamid II).
Dilly also questions Dr Ahmed about a number of controversial practices widely attributed to the Ottomans, and whether any of those positions had scholarly support and any Islamic basis.
Topics of discussion also include how Islamic the Ottoman Dynasty was in terms of their state institutions, governance and laws, as well as the importance of reconnecting with Ottoman history in the political, spiritual and intellectual revival of the Ummah.
