Author William Federer Describes 'The Treacherous World of the 16th Century'
"William Federer has written a book called the treacherous world of the 16th century and how the pilgrims escaped it which its effectively the prequel to America's freedom, William Federer, welcome to the program. Great to be with you. Hey, I mean, the treacherous world of the 16th century and how the pilgrims escaped it. Most of us know so little about the 16th century. We don't think of it as treacherous or non treacherous. What are we talking about here? What is that what is it that got you to write this book? You've written so many books on history. It's a joy to talk to you on any historical subject. But I love it when you come out with a book like this, because you really have done your homework and we get to benefit. What is it that why do you call it the prequel to America's freedom? What did they leave? Well, Europe was ruled by kings and it was being invaded by the sultan of Turkey. The Ottoman sultan Suleiman the Magnificent he was surrounding Vienna. So backdrop, the Muslims conquered all of North Africa, which used to be Christian. There were 250 Catholic diocese along North Africa. Muslims invaded Spain and held it for 700 years and they were just driven out in 1492. So just a couple of years earlier, the Muslims had controlled Egypt for 600 years. It had been founded by the Christian face Mark that wrote the gospel of Matthew Mark Luke and John. And then Siri was completely Christian for 6 centuries of angiotensin by the apostle Paul until Khalid Omar conquers it. And the Turks convert to Islam and they invaded to what is today Turkey and all 7 churches mentioned in the book of revelation are wiped out and then they finally cross the Bosporus and conquer Constantinople in 1453 and then finally they're invading Europe and surrounding Vienna Austria the year 1529. So here we have an Islamic invasion into Europe and just a couple of years earlier the reformation started 1517 with Martin Luther. And so Europe has an inside outside chaos going on and the Holy Roman Emperor is the king of Spain. Charles V now the title Holy Roman Emperor means he's sort of responsible for defending Christendom. And so here he is wanting to defend against the Islamic invasion. At the same time, he is inherited all the new world, right? Columbus discovered it for Ferdinand Isabella. And so he's taking the gold from the new world to fit out his navy to keep the Muslims from taking over the Mediterranean

"He's one who's written that check for it. So why stress and worry about it, whatever is going to come to you is going to come to a certainty as the angel of death. But just try and do it. I guess these are just means, right? We still have to think for me and of course we do our best, but the actual result is in a lot of times. So you go out and that's why I always talk about the principles doing. You don't seek money in a way that's going to displace a lot. You know the rules. And you don't take advantage of anyone in the pursuit of it. You go back, but you have to go out and you work hard. And there's a whole other podcast on honestly on how I think we've got a generation who've completely disconnected to hard work and productivity. Unfortunately, I was having a lot of speaking to a lot of people who were involved even in the professional spheres as well as the dawa, where they just can't find people who are willing to work long hours or commit themselves anymore. And it's a shame. It's a shame. Why do you think that is, why do you think that is? Because I think we're an instant gratification, society, we're in this time of where everyone thinks they know business and everything's transactional. And this is why I keep reminding people that the transactions on just the transactions that you make between someone for money by your transactions with online, and that's all of these other things that we're speaking about. You know, people are instantly, this is transaction. I'm sure when you were growing up and I'm sure my generation when you spoke to people, they were all involved in some sort of activity outside of what they'd work. They go to school, college university, even when they're working full time. They'd be involved in some sort of dour. They'd be doing things which doesn't make sense for someone to be doing like going halfway across the city to give out leaflets or attending circles. These types of things. I tell people to do it now. They say, okay, what's in it for me? I've seen this. What's in it for me? I do not know. You know what my career is having finance? I never worked in Islamic finance as a job until I worked at Wahid. This is the first time in my life I've been paid for working in Islamic finance. The last 15 years I did it entirely on top of my day job. My family honestly, my wife and kids, they didn't see me for ages. But that's because you've got your motivated your seeing something bigger. So maybe that's what's missing, you know, they're not seeing they're not motivated for something bigger. Is that what it is?.

The technology, for example, just trying to change in this video. Yeah. So the idea may be great, but are you going to be able to execute because it's not easy? Do they have the background? Yeah. Exactly. It's true. All of those things, I think. The thing is a lot of the books nowadays about finances even books like rich dad poor dad and you know those kind of popular Tony Robbins books about money and you pick them up and in a few pages you just realize how irrelevant they're gonna be to you because they talk about compound interest and you know, that's what they're all about, right? So I think there's just such a death of literature out there. There's nothing there for Muslims to kind of say, look, I actually know, I do want to get financially sav. I do want to take my finances seriously as soon as you go into the mainstream world of advice if you like or self development in that in that field, it just becomes so irrelevant so quickly that I think you should write a book brother. All right. I've been thinking like a popular book, you know, not one of these very kind of theoretical Islamic finance books. But literally. Like, where do you start? What do these terms mean? 'cause that's another thing, isn't it? Yeah yeah, definitely. What does equity mean? What is a share anyway? What is that? All of that. And then just giving people like a plan because I think a lot of the time people just want they just want a plan, yeah, I agree with you. I think, you know, definitely something I want to do for a while. Kind of like an everyday Islamic finance book. So what I mean by that is, you know, understanding finance as a Muslim personally. Yeah. And everyday basis. So you think like, you know these quid co something like that, you know, where you get cash discounts. Are they permissible? How do you navigate through that? We're doing some credit cards like, okay, you never use a credit card, but, you know, if you pay a fee for it and you get points, you know, just kind of navigate warranties. Like, you know, we kind of think of these things, okay, when I buy something I can extended warranty, is it allowed? Savings. Returns. When you.

If you think about your normal rate of lending hair, maybe 5% 6% 7%. They were charging 30% to the poorest in society to lend them money, right? And so but he was applauded the world over. He got a Nobel Prize and microfinance was seen, oh, this is we're helping developing communities. We're doing X, Y and Z by microfinancing. I know a friend of mine used to work for a hedge fund, and he goes that 40% of their profit came from microfinancing because they could charge the highest rates. High suites to who? The developing world. You see, and so my worry is now with the kind of the FinTech, the financial technology revolution people are it's a lot easier there's lower barriers to entry to sing up companies by also exposes people to more opportunities where people who aren't qualified. You don't have the expertise in advising or setting up companies. Now taking money. The democratization of flow of wealth has this as an impact. You know, so now people are coming into it, who, and their intention, I know from when I was spoken to people, their intention isn't to build something to last. They're not looking at the value created in society. They're looking at and they've said the quickest I can exit out of creating a company. So they're just looking to get a value of their company and get out of it. And it's happened is happening in the Islamic finance space. The Islamic FinTech space, which is why I worry, which is why you still need to go back to basic principles and all of these things about, okay, why are you doing what you're doing?

The same with insurance has become so prevalent, yeah, yeah, you can buy car insurance because it's low over the land and so on and so forth. They'll just get the sound bites, the headlines and they think it's okay. And they don't realize actually you're supposed to still interact with it in a way that you detest it. And that level of detestation isn't there. When it's hard to detect something when, you know, it's your house, basically, you know, you're actually you're gaining something that you love from it, right? Yeah. But that mechanism that you were forced to do that. Yeah. Well, I think it's because people don't even really know if that's what, you know. They don't realize that the entire premise of it was based on considering owning a house to be at the rura, right? Yeah, yeah. Which is also a question questionable. The very premises like owning a lot of European countries, people don't own their properties. There's something about Britain, I think. This is the point you see. This is what rather than us completely going down the oh, how do we mimic life? And make these things halal. Why do we look at alternatives? Germany that were renting. Why is there a lobby group to try and say, actually, we need to move away from home ownership to having more safer secure rinse? Thinking outside of the box. There's a number of housing kind of products I've seen, which are truly halal, truly Hal in the sense of the way that they are structured. That came about by non Muslims who were looking at a problem that yeah, a non Muslims, they devised it because they didn't want people to get into debt to help people from a social housing perspective. Who were lower down the socioeconomic ladder, non Muslims because they started with what's the problem? How do we solve it? If you look at what debt stand, if you look at the house prices, house prices have risen completely in line with money circulation, money circulation that's been driven by credit. Yeah? The way Islamic mortgages work, it completely mimics all you can economic outputs of one mortgage. And that has a problem because you're part of the problem then you're part of the reason why house prices are rising so high. You know?.

"And this was a big issue. That's one of the criticisms, right? Mimicked conventional finance. And so something that shouldn't be a day. Well, something that they say is in a debt ends up operating entirely like a debt. Yes. This is financial engineering to make halal by the way it's structured, but actually it operates functions, taste feel, smells exactly like a normal product. Now for me, it's something that's quite interesting is that everyone talks about Bitcoin. I'm sure you've spoken must have spoken about Bitcoin as well, and the rise of Bitcoin and why. It's talking about it. I've just discovered it recently. And I must say it's quite confusing. Yeah. But if we take it back rather than looking at the price hikes, what was it about Bitcoin that captured everyone's imagination? It was the fact that it was an opposition to conventional banking. The convention system finance. Now, Bitcoin came out of nowhere, but we don't know actually who came up with it and the world has been captured by, oh my God, there's another there's an alternative to the conventional financial system. Where were the people involved in Islamic finance from the financial crisis happen to say actually the alternative to the oppression within the conventional financial system is Islamic finance? When the financial crisis happened, why did we not come forward? Why did that come forward? And you know why is because they couldn't stand up and say, actually, our financial system is different. Because it was, it was a different and they knew it. It wasn't in substance. It wasn't. I've seen meetings. I was in order to charge of glass. You know, in London Bridge building in Western Europe, everyone loves it. That was actually funded using Islamic finance. Okay? Right. Parent, the parent company was Islamic finance. All of the subsidiaries, the companies underneath, actually built it, conventional finance. We were supposed to audit it. I was one of the auditors on there. I was sat there and I go okay, I'm going to audit the files. And I go, are we supposed to be funded using shriek finance? And my manager, not Muslim goes, yes. Make sure anywhere where it says interest, you change it to profit. Anywhere in the country says interest just make sure it's crossing out and change it to profit. This is one example there's so many you speak to people in the industry and they will tell you how it's just a fast people are involved behind the scenes. They will tell you that, okay, contracts, they're hidden from the scholars, their way to school is go out the room. They will change things. They play about with it. And the thing is that people on the ground, they can't honestly say that the product that comes to them feels any different. And the support of the community as well, because they ask for products that are exactly like a conventional product. But this is the problem when the financial crisis happen, this was our opportunity to say Islam has a better way of doing things. Islam has a solution to this. The debt where, you know, you privatize profits in socialized losses..

"So what do you say to people? First of all, when you want to introduce them to Islamic finance and secondly it's Muslims when they're skeptical of it. All right, so I guess if we start at Islamic finance from what it should be and then I think that's a good place to start. So Islamic finance in terms of its original principles and what it calls to is absolutely economic justice. And it helps foster and create an environment for economic prosperity I guess in a fair way. This is really important the principles that we have. I remember I gave a speech once on canon Muslims benefit from Islamic finance, and I got a standing ovation from the majority non Muslim crowd, because when you explain the principles, forget the terms when you explain the principles they all get it. When you talk about there has to be really economic activity, you're not selling nothing for something. We have risk and reward is shared, okay? This is like, you know, irrespective of your economic background, you're both treated fairly in a transaction based on what you put into that transaction, not like today, if you're a huge super corporate conglomerate and there's an individual person on the other side, they get dwarfed individual that their rights don't matter the big company matters. And you can see this when companies go bankrupt, who are the best people to get their money back. It's a large companies, why not individuals? And then obviously all of the negative things in society, the socials that used to speak about, not investing in pornography in glam, in alcohol, you know, there's got to be some real trade something of real value that's being exchanged in this and then you know, if you look at it, all of these principles actually haven't done it. They get it, they understand. But then also the approach Islam's approach to money is in that value is so much more than just money. And it's getting people to understand this. When we look, we think, okay, value and a capitalist system is that you've got to make more money than you made the previous yet. And if you don't make more money than you made the previous year and the company hasn't done well. But maybe you employ 200 more people. Maybe employed 500 more people. That's 500 more families that are now being fed because of you, but we don't look at those metrics. We just look at bottom line return..

And for me, it was and having that someone handled it, I guess I didn't protect us from this kind of coveting money for the sake of money.

Explain to us the difference. The relationship and the competing interests of al-qaeda. So where's al qaeda to day. And how it compares with isis and this isis k. And then where does the taliban fit in. Well it will leave. The shia will leave new shrine and iran for a second told us about the three big pieces of of of suny terrorism today. Yeah absolutely. I'm gonna just take a real quick second to take a broad look at this. When president biden said the threat has basically metastasized and spread to other areas. He's absolutely greg. This is the failure of our efforts. Post nine eleven. Because pre-nine eleven the taliban the taliban hosted al qaeda and that was the main base for al-qaeda that's where they operated openly and ran training camps and whatnot and the operated cellular level. Now it's spread out. And there's these insurgencies are the lifeblood of the jihad. They use this the safe haven that exist pre-nine eleven in afghanistan afghanistan today to take the fight to to they want to establish their local emirates. Build a caliph it and then take the fight to watch. That's all part of their strategy today. Today that's threat has metastasized across the globe. But that is the reason to surrender afghanistan and in afghanistan today now the taliban greens the country l. Qaeda is it's primarily al-qaeda played a major role in the taliban offensive. It's not advertised. But i i have to go into detail and spend do conversation on how al qaeda played a major role in this offensive behind the scenes. You'll just have to take my so so so. This is very important that al qaeda was was an important part of the taliban recapturing afghanistan. That's what you're saying. Well yeah absolutely. The misconception about al qaeda and even the islamic state is that there are solely focused on conducting attacks here in the united states. That's a tactic. that's something they hope to do.

A plane apparently has crashed into the World Trade Center in New York. We go smoke is billowing out of the building from the upper floors of Power one You can See the smoke for miles and miles. The plane that morning when the two planes hit the World Trade Center, Kevin was out for a jog, but he went straight into work and headed for what became known as Ground zero. When we got down there, there was debris everywhere. People were in shock. You had fire engines. These are big. 10 Ton 20 ton vehicles just strewn about like little toys. These big shards of the trade talent. You can see the facade just sticking up. We had some Paper masks that we carried with us. We put them on to help. Uh, deal with the the ash. Because if you weren't careful, you could just black out. I mean, there was one fellow I think I knew him from the Bronx space. This is an African American. He was there when the collapse happened. He basically looked like he was in white face covered, head to toe and dust. Kevin's team realized the disaster was so huge it was little they could actually do. You know we had gone down there. It's like, Yeah, we're gonna help pull the you know, rubble off and try to find people know we weren't gonna do that. We didn't have the equipment. You could have had 50 people in one area. You're not going to move this debris. And did you have any idea Kevin at that stage? How many firefighters? How many? Five marshals have been killed? How many of your own had been killed? No. We just knew it was bad. In fact, 343 of Kevin's firefighting colleagues were killed on September the 11th more than 10% of the overall loss of life. The attack was linked almost immediately to the Islamist terrorist group, Al Qaeda. And when you heard that, Kevin, what was your reaction? How did you feel There is a physical and emotional I mean, I just sank in my chair. My heart sank at the time I was active with the New York Chapter of the Council on American Islamic Relations. We were starting to make progress and altering the possession of the Muslim community. At that point, you know we had. I think we had about eight candidates who identified as Muslim who are running for either City Council. I think one person was running for Borough president. We were looking to make gains and and gain a political voice. So to hear this On a day that I had planned to pull watch on behalf of a Muslim candidate for City Council. It was just a punch in the gut, and it didn't take long for people to start questioning Kevin about his religion. He remembers a difficult conversation with the Fire Department colleague. He was respectful. There was one on one. It wasn't trying to embarrass me. He could have been something in front of an audience. But no, he was more angry. Over the loss of his comrades. You know the people from his firehouse. He was so destroyed, they said. Is this in the Korean that this is acceptable? I said, no. The Koran holds life sacred. The killing of one person is like the killing of all of humanity and know the Koran does not condone this type of action. In the days after 9 11 Muslim women in hijabs and Muslim men with beards were costed in the streets across America. Hate crime soared. Anyone who looked middle Eastern or South Asian, uh, targets for their eye or whether they were Muslim and not you could be Hindu or Sikh. Or you have no No relation to Islam and you would be attacked anyway. 49 year old Bobby Singh, Saudi was shot at the petrol station he owned in Arizona. It proved to be the first of a frightening wave of hate crimes directed at anyone suspected of being a Muslim. Nowadays, flying the flag is more than a show of patriotism. It's also a sort of insurance policy against those who would doubt their allegiance in these days of high emotion, and Kevin did you face discrimination where you subjected to hate crimes because of your religion? Personally, I didn't feel targeted or his clean shaven. There was nothing that would identify me to anyone else as being Muslim. Nothing outwardly in my appearance would lead on that. I practice Islam. But Kevin did you know other Muslims who did experience discrimination? Oh, yes. So you know the fire. If you're in the uniform force, you're pretty well protected. You know, the unions give you a lot of cover. The civilians. Not so and there are a couple of, uh, woman's civilian employees of my organisation. Their boss didn't want him around anymore because of 9 11 and there was sent to another agency. I think they took a pay cut. I felt horrible because there was nothing I could really do about it. And these were Muslim women. Yes, they were in an attempt to stave off more violence. President George W. Bush gave a speech at the Islamic Center of Washington on September the 17th. He made the distinction between Muslim Americans and the terrorists who had attacked the U. S. A Muslim friends and citizens, taxpaying citizens and Muslims and nations. Were just appalled and could not believe what we saw on our TV screens. These acts of violence against innocence violate The fundamental tenets of the Islamic faith. And it's important for my fellow Americans to understand that.

"One thing i wanted to throw out there is On related to what he was saying but around the point of university. I remember somebody asking me a question that was wooded in the effect of wire and in hindsight adoped believe i was able to answer that an elephant. That's because of the way. The islamic upbringing happened initially in the earliest stages. And that was i. Guess a driving point infamy to have that further spiritual development as well because i think when we label ourselves as muslims. We need to really understand. Why we're labeling ourselves. Muslims not just because my parents are so i think that we need to really understanding Some brilliant things things that we've talked about so far We've talked about our culture upbringing. We've talked about a turning point university with talked about how that's evolved. How been involved incredibly with events and Doing salah which is almost been like a congregational thing which was at the time the salem and then beyond that it's become much more of a spiritual journey in more recent years at. She's something. I just wanted to explore a little bit further because i think even the university period as well. I think that's been discussed quite law a think activism in general is there's gonna be a ton of shows on the radio with brothers. Sisters a token about activism is organizations. I'm quite keen to explore some of the things more in the past five years. I mean we're all in our mitha is at the moment so things. What things you learn in your thirties. If are just elaborate. One of the things. I think has become quite important for me is. I've started seeing things as less black and white. I think both of you alluded to in when your university. You quan idealistic. And you can see things in black and white and it's about retaining as much information and trying to acquire as much knowledge as possible without really understanding the full meaning. Something that were here. You talked about a little bit earlier for me..

"Yet which which isn't correct but it's the only way that we've been able to explain it to a four year old says interesting the vest so many questions about a lot and they'll speak about if he's almost one of their friends and they usually say to me that you're not the boss of the house. The bus look. And what can you say you got to combat to the can you say to that. Can you say that allows the bus of everything about you says interesting. It's interesting yes. I think just to so of todd this into the previous conversation which took in about Some of the things changes that we've noticed over the past few years and this is great. I'm in brilliant. This conversation because was stopped. The focused on to be placed on our kids and making sure that we're raising good. Pious righteous confident young individuals that do good things and are involved with the community where he'll govern. Yeah just to follow on to that. You know i think when we go from one generation to the next is always the idea of wanting the next generation to have a better life and usually that focus tends to be in the worldly aspect you know bad job prospects etcetera and not so much of a focus on the religious side of things islamic bringing so. It's good to see that that's starting to shift a bit. Mommy doesn't mean that we should neglect the having. Good prospects in the dunia by any means. But it's just about. Make sure the balances right. Actually i think that's quite an interesting point to a mutually exclusive. Nope and again when again. We're moving away from black and white as we become parents of becoming a little bit older and actually they can be good at both and they should have a good upbringing in both sides respects And actually our dog years. While is that even for well. I think just get back to the previous conversation about not seeing things in black and white and just our development of the islamic months actually dowa and the way that we carry ourselves a flaw can mannerisms with people should be a reflection and should be away of as Being an exemplify slum for muslims is that we should be good ambassadors..

"But the m- isn't it by having right or bring in the education. It will slamming perspective on the education from a parental parental side of things to encourage that child to that made that decision and encouragement to be involved. Saying we're here. We're talking about lockdown last week isn't it seems and i think if you i i would hope the answer. If you ask most people did what did you teach your children. Did you teach him something slightly out of the ordinary out of the box. Some life skills out help most people would say yes. We will much more involved with teaching them. Some life skills Will the very least some islamic Don't say slum excuse but some of the dean giving them some of the education she fake in your. Yeah i mean i would say agree so of with the aim is always to make sure all kids prepared to be involved within the community and get involved with activities Me palestinian last five years. I mean i'm no longer involved in anything have tried here and there to be involved with things but it just gets difficult time and you know as you try to focus on your kids you realized Where your priority should be just making sure. They have a good understanding of islam and especially at young age. Because that's something we're he'll definitely didn't have when we were quite a bit younger So in shallow. Our kids don't have to go through the same thing we did. You know there are a lot more confident as they're growing up and you know the the identity of being muslim isn't something they shy away from. You want them to be just be proud and say yeah muslim when they ask questions. At a young age they're able to answer them confidently and not in a way which is arrogant either because you want them to be able to have a discussion with people that explained to them they believe not also avian their friends.

"Because i felt like i can relate to other people who are going through the same journey as i am great interesting interesting. Were here anything you wanna share with us. I think for me. I never really saw as something foreign Perhaps more so just as a bunch of rituals and acts of things that you do not really being separated from the cultural aspect So the key to really had blend without identity between them to what was crucial. What was actually poverty salaam Think that really started like shafique at the university stage when you start to see a bit more exposure to it you know for the site people interacting and having that conversation with like monday people. I wouldn't say. I have saw something faren but i could see what she means when he says the. It's interesting just one thing. I think we're picking. I think one common theme is that there's been things speaking for myself as well. There's this perception that we had as children where it wasn't massively religious but i think there was a large cultural element to it think. This many conversations are I'm sure there's been many conversations that have happened like this on the radio. In fact i think. I remember doing very similar thing about ten fifteen years ago comeback while so in terms of how with islamic developed here in the uk Over twenty five years. Absolutely there's been some major changes from the fifth generation to the second generation. I think one very important. Thank you both talked about university and actually just to be convenient clear as well all three of his each the from university islamic though Just not to mislead anyone or three. It's not from islamic societies. What about the sec. So if we just separate the transition to pause from everything before university up to university and then from university to way you on now but and the reason the reason to separate that is because we've now got children who may be said fourth generation and the way islam is being taught to them is very different to how is to to what we've got new generation and then our experiences as a becoming older is becoming a little bit different as well if we just explore that little bit further. What things have you noticed in your stomach mindset things. i've matured things that you do more or less of over the past fifteen years.
