Finally, after three years of work, my thesis is starting to come together into a coherent whole. It is not finished yet by any means, but I feel clear about my contribution to the subject, inshallah, and am quite positive about the value of my study. I am not ready to make public my full thesis yet, but it won’t be too long before that day comes. There are also some interesting bits and pieces that I have written, which diverged too much from my main topic and so will not make it into the final draft. These might just turn up on here at some point. Much salam to all those who pass through here, I hope you like the updated format.
