SWISSCAST with Suhaib Webb
Summary: Islam, Faith, Courses and Current Issues
Conversations around guns having taken an intense turn since early February. In this episode I address that along with the misapplication of a religious axiom, often used by the misinformed to harm women.
Why are knowledge and the intellect so important in Islam? What are the divisions of knowledge and what it its purpose? In this lesson, Suhaib Webb unpacks the wisdom of Imam al-Ghazzali and Imam ibn al-Jawzi in examining those important questions.
The Quran’s first chapter, the Opener represents a gateway to a purpose driven life, rooted in learning, faith, worship, and character. In this first reflection, Suhaib Webb helps us enter into a relationship with this chapter that helps us start a relationship with faith and scripture.
In this week's Friday sermon, I addressed some lessons we derive from rain, why standing up for the undocumented is important, and an Islamic position on gun control?
Professional challenges, as well as a toxic religious environment, compelled al-Ghazzali to write his most famous work. How would he react to today's life? A life filled with opulence, shallow religious analysis, and divisions? How do we calibrate a concern for our soul in an age where some are claiming the soul does not exist?
