Brass Crescent Awards – Voting Phase

brasscrescent_vert.gifThe voting phase for the Brass Crescent Awards has now begun (though a bit later than expected). We have some really great blogs for you all to vote on, so head over and make your choices!

As it says on the official site, the Awards are named for the Story of the City of Brass in the Thousand and One
Nights. Today, the Islamsphere is forging a new synthesis of Islam and
modernity, and is the intellectual heir to the traditions of philosophy
and learning that was once the hallmark of Islamic civilization – a
heritage scarcely recognizable today in the Islamic world after a
century’s ravages of colonialism, tyrants, and religious
fundamentalism. We believe that Islam transcends history, and we are
forging history anew for tomorrow’s Islam. These awards are a means to
honor ourselves and celebrate our nascent community, and promote its
growth.

Join us – it’s as simple as heading over to the Awards site and casting your vote!
