For the better part of the last 100 years, Muslims have been politically and economically dominated all around the world.

Within the ummah, nostalgia and folklore about our history persists. Fantastical tales of great heroism of the past are often told with a tinge of unrealism, replacing hard fact and historical reality.

Were we ever as great as we are told or have we refashioned our history to explain away the pain of the present?

How could a nation that once led the world come to the position that it is in today?

It’s time to look back to our past so that we can understand the present and prepare for the future.

Join us at the 'Islam's Forgotten Legacy | The Untold History of My Religion' Conference where we will address Islam's history in a way never experienced before in Australia. Through a range of talks, panels, an incredible exhibition and a groundbreaking documentary, we will tell the story of Muslim history and ask the questions few have dared to ask.

  • Ibn Khaldun's Legacy: How should we approach Islamic History? | Ust. Abdassamad Clarke (UK)

  • From Power to Squalor: Islam's tumultuous history in Asia | Faraz Nomani
  • Ottomania: Islam's Intriguing Ottoman experience | Erdinc Atasever
