1001 Inventions at Living Islam 2008
1001 inventions was invited to attend the Living Islam Camp 2008, held at the Lincolnshire Showground, near the city of Lincoln. The Living Islam Event was run from Thursday 17th July to Sunday 20th July 2008. It is a huge camp organised annually by the moderate Islamic Society of Britain. It is attended by more than 3000 men and women from different parts of the UK. Every year, the event is animated by a variety of speakers and discussion seminars.
Professor Salim T S Al-Hassani delivered a speech entitled "Amnesia and the Identity Crisis" on behalf of on behalf of 1001 Inventions and FSTC. The speech highlighted the missing millennium form the Schools Curricula and from the main sources which influence public opinion and showed how a wonderful civilisation had existed during the so called "Dark Ages". Thousands of inventions from this civilisation which still affect our present life are air brushed from history. When recognition of these inventions are made, non-Muslims will respect and appreciate Muslims. On the other hand, Muslims will react positively by reasserting their identity and drop the fear of being a Muslim and also at the same time being British and this should reflected through useful deeds to all members of society, to animals, to plants, and to environment and nature at large.
A book stall was also hosted at the event, where Professor Salim T S Al-Hassani signed copies of the book, 1001 Inventions: Muslim Heirtage in Our World.
