In honor of the best blogs in the blogosphere, news blog, alt.muslim and intellectual think tank, City of Brass present the Brass Crescent Awards for 2006/1427. These highly saught after awards give blog readers the skinny on who is really making headlines (literally) in the blogosphere, here is a brief description of the awards,
“The Brass Crescent Awards, a joint project of alt.muslim and City of Brass, is an annual awards ceremony that honors the best writers and thinkers of the emerging Muslim blogosphere (aka the Islamsphere). Nominations are taken from blog readers, who then vote for the winners.
What are the Brass Crescent Awards? They 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.”
