The Usuli Institute Third Halaqa, 3 February 2018

In the third meeting of the Usuli Institute, we begin with a discussion of converts. Dr. Abou El Fadl discusses the historical dynamics of conversion in America, and the relationship of colonialism and Islamophobia, as well as the underlying theology of the "straight path" and the meaning of imaan. In the Q&A segment, he covers a wide range of topics from jinn and demons; to the what it will take to make a difference in our current context; to the intercession of the Prophet; shaking hands, wearing beards and much more. 


The Intellectual counter-jihad has begun.  help us win the war of ideas.
