Muslims learned the art of papermaking in the eighth century through their contacts with the Chinese, following their expansion into Central Asia. By the 11thth centuries, this technique reached Europe by way of Muslim Spain. Prior to the introduction of paper, Muslims used parchment made from goatskin and papyrus indigenous to Egypt which they conquered in for writing. Papermaking contributed to the flourishing of Islamic civilization in the middle ages, by providing readily accessible writing materials, and to the proliferation of the Islamic book and the craft of bookbinding.
The oldest surviving sample of early Islamic bookbinding is a fragment made of cedar wood dating back to 9th century Egypt.

However, none of these statements are true. Shari’ah on Trial goes beyond journalistic headlines and liberal pieties to give a powerful account of how Northern Nigerians reached a point of such desperation that they demanded the return of the strictest possible shari’ah law.
Sarah Eltantawi analyzes changing conceptions of Islamic theology and practice as well as Muslim and British interactions dating back to the colonial period to explain the resurgence of shari’ah, with implications for Muslim-majority countries around the world. A Revolution for Shari?

Is dating a married man right or wrong? Instinctively, most of you would go for the obvious answer: wrong. But you may be as surprised as I was to hear that some women think otherwise.
