[المصدر موقع حبر]

قبل سبعة أشهر، جلست إلى الطاولة الصغيرة في المطبخ، في شقتي المصممة على طراز الستينيّات، في الطابق الأخير لبنايةٍ في حي نابض بالحياة وسط طهران. وفعلت شيئًا فعلته آلاف المرّات سابقًا. فتحت اللابتوب ونشرت شيئًا في مدوّنتي الجديدة. لكن مع ذلك، كانت هذه التدوينة الأولى منذ ست سنوات، وكادت أن تحطَّمَ قلبي. قبل بضعة أسابيع، كنت قد نلت العفو وتحررت فجأةً من سجن إيفِن شمال طهران. كنت أتوقعُ أن أقضي جُلّ حياتي في تلك الزنازين. في نوفمبر 2008 تم الحكم علي بعشرين عامًا في السجن، غالبًا، لأشياء كتبتها على مدوّنتي. لم تكن لحظة الإفراج متوقعة. دخّنتُ سيجارة في المطبخ مع أحد رفاقي السجناء، ومن ثم عدتُ إلى الغرفة التي شاركتها مع عشرات الرجال الآخرين. كنا نشرب الشاي معًا عندما ...

The Caliphate Beyond ISIS: An Interview with Salman Sayyid (Part Two)

Contemporary discussions about the concept of the caliphate almost invariably turn to its application at the hands of the Islamic State. Challenging this trend in his recent book, Recalling the Caliphate, Salman Sayyid examines the historical conception of the caliphate and its meaning for Muslim polities. In this second part of the interview with Sayyid, he identifies the prevailing divisions across Islamic societies that have manifested in recent political contestations and offers a far more nuanced approach to the predominant secular/religious binary used to analyze these conflicts. Junaid Ahmad conducted the interview in Lahore, Pakistan. He was assisted by Sania ...
