Asalaamualaykum everyone. Recently I’ve started a new web series tackling Islamophobic rhetoric and arguments critical of Islam. The series is called ‘iJihad’ or “Intellectual Jihad” and has thus far been a big hit. Enjoy!
During Ramadan I gave a interview on ‘Extremism in Muslim Thought’ with Muslim Chronicles with Amsal. Herein I discuss the nature of terrorism and extremist thinking in the ummah, as well as its roots and how to address it.
A lecture I gave on 6 April 2016 at the International Islamic University of Malaysia:
I had my first formal public debate at the International Islamic University of Malaysia (IIUM) on 6 April 2016. I was against the proposition.
I recently gave a lecture on October 6th, 2015, at the International Conference on “Islam, Science and Sustainable Development: Maqasid al-Shari‘ah and Humanity’s Well-being” on the topic of littering — particularly in Malaysia. I offered solutions based on a Maqasidi approach, emphasizing the concept of khalifa.
On May 9th, 2015 I gave a lecture on Liberalism in Muslim Thought at IMEC 2015 in Kuala Lumpur Malaysia. The lecture touched up on some of the basic principles of Liberalism and the three major effects it has on Muslim-majority societies at large: (1) The degradation of Islam, (2) The rise of atheism and Western exceptionalism, and (3) the rise of terrorism and extremism.
Thank you again to Wanita ISMA and the Muslim Debate Initiative.
Asalaamualaykum to my readers,
I recently gave a two day lecture on the subject of contemporary atheism! There are six sessions in total for those interested in contemporary atheist thought, the history behind their ideas, and my refutations of rationale.
