SESSION 5, DELIVERED ON 6/19/2022
Giving up on the ummah is the greatest pollutant among Muslims.
When we read the Quran, we don’t read it with the language of human rights. We read it in the language and context of wahy.
Wahy is broad, vast, and accommodates all communities, all contexts, and furthermore, all phases of existence.
We have to include the Ākhirah in the language of wahy. Otherwise, our approach is deficient.
The reason for diversity is so that we know we are different from each other.
In this lecture:
- the evil of ghībah
- the language of wahy
- the methodical dismantlement of the Qurayshi aristocracy in Makkah
- the norms of human behavior and what Islam adds to it
