|Opening Notes:||IN THIS ISSUE:|
|I will opt for brevity in these opening notes, with the hope that
the quality and value of this issue will speak for itself.
I want to take this opportunity, however, to thank all the contributors who made this issue the best as-Sikka yet.
Specifically, I would like to thank Tawfiq Ibrahim. Not only for his important contributions in the three articles that crown this issue, but for championing the cause of as-Sikka and also for initiating and helping me in my translation of al-Dawahit al-Mushtabakat Fi Dawabit Dar al-Sikka.
The idea of focusing each issue of as-Sikka on a theme or subject is one that I would like the group's input on. I have posted a poll which I hope you will be willing to participate in. It will help us in delivering an increasingly more useful eJournal.
Finally, and on a different note, I would like to entertain the idea of an editorial board that would act on a rotating basis in putting together future issues of as-Sikka. Your thoughts, initiatives and volunteer spirits are sought.
