We sat down with Professor Nebil Husayn at the 2015 Muslim Group Conference in Chicago, Il, to ponder how to approach Islamic history. His dissertation at Princeton University, entitled, "The Memory of Ali ibn Abi Talib in the Early Sunni Community," was on the issue of Pro-ʿAlid perspectives, Anti-ʿAlid sentiment, and the imprints of early Muslim thought on Sunni Islam.
