Brass Crescent Awards 2008: Nominations Open

Published

The BCAs are back. Open nominations provide us all with the means to shape the Muslim blogosphere into a more productive place, insha’Allah.

Visit the website, to place your nominations by October 24th 2008. The voting round opens in November. It’ll be interesting to see who gets called up this year.

Notice that the “Best Ijtihaad” category has been scrapped. For the best it seems, as not many scholars are into blogging, and ijtihaad is not a word to be lightly tossed around.

Since then, she has attained a PhD in Molecular Biology and a subsequent Masters in Bioinformatics, and now works as a specialist in this field for a well-known British, medical charity, masha'Allah.

    Btw, I think we should have a vote for the best post on MM one day.. just to see what sort of flavors people like… :)

    For the benefit of everyone, what other blogs, and what other articles here or outside MM, are people nominating?
