    E3: Who was Emir AbdelKader, the hero of humanity?

    E3: Who was Emir AbdelKader, the hero of humanity?

    "People might have asked you: ‘If you could meet anyone from history, who would it be?’ Well, I know my answer. It’s The Emir, Abdel-Kader. Emir means ‘Commander of the Faithful.’ It’s a title Abdel-Kader certainly earned.


    Because that’s what he was. A Commander. But not just that.


    Emir Abdel-Kader was an extraordinary human being who led a phenomenal life, who grew from being an ordinary Algerian Sufi to a world-historical figure with a legacy that stretches across four continents.


    I first stumbled upon Abdel-Kader’s legend by listening to a popular song, fittingly enough called ‘Abdel Kader,’ by the famous Algerian Rai singer Cheb Khaled, who also sang the very well-known song ‘Aisha’.


    I started out curious, just wondering who the lyrics celebrated, and quickly became fascinated... hence this series.


    I'm Muddassar Ahmed."
