Once in a while I go off topic. Today is one of those days where I wanted to talk about the past, present and the future of Islam in China blog. I have not been posting with much regularity over the last year or so. I even forgot the obligatory Chinese New Year message this year. That is mainly because I have been busy with my thesis work and other research responsibilities. Now that I have a semester or so of work left I have decided to get my act together with respect to some of the neglected things in life such as this blog. After almost 375,000 hits and three years later I can say that the blog has been quite successful. I have also met many wonderful people, including many other Chinese Muslims in many countries through this blog. Overall this has been a great experiment, Alhamdulilah.
Looking into the future, I plan to completely revamp and greatly expand the companion website to this blog, add many new contributors, and launch a new project on Chinese Muslims and Huis in America. The end goal of the new project would be to come out with a full length manuscript.
Also I would like to connect more with the readers, so feel free to ask me anything.
