Chapter 5 brings theories and theologies together to consider the reordering of ways of knowing and being from the position of the wretched and oppressed. It conveys scenes from the Zaytuna classroom where students and teachers discuss Frantz Fanon's The Wretched of the Earth and discusses how the historical emergence of race as a discursive construct with material ramifications impacted Islamic thought, theology, and practice. Through an attention to the blues adhan and an epistemology for the next this chapter considers how liberation theories and theologies come together and apart in Medina by the Bay toward (re)constructing Islamic ways of knowing and being oriented toward survival, at the scales of the heart, material life, the umma, and beyond.
