Shaykh Salman Younas
In a rapidly moving world, Muslims regularly find themselves engaged in intense and animated discussions on some topic(s) of contemporary relevance: the history of Islamic law, the theological doctrines of Islam, the role and function of scholarship, the fiqh of social media discourse, social justice in Islam, Muslims in politics, abortion, civil rights, and more. In this weekly podcast series, Shaykh Salman Younas will select a ‘topic of the week’ occupying the minds of Muslims in the present moment and provide rich and uplifting commentary anchored in faith, spirituality, and practical guidance.
01 – When the Feeling Stops – A Few Good Words: Conversations on Issues Gripping the Muslim Mind – Shaykh Salman Younas
In the first episode of this podcast series, Shaykh Salman examines the anxiety many people are feeling over COVID-19 and the inability to experience Ramadan this year in a more intimate communal setting. Shaykh Salman explains the centrality of community to our faith, while probing a deeper set of questions: Why do we engage in worship? What do our anxieties over Ramadan reveal about the need to make our connection to Allah stronger? And how should we understand the current crisis and find opportunity in it given this? Finally, Shaykh Salman provides some thoughts on a legal question that many have asked: what is the status of reading from the mushaf in tarawih prayers we perform at home.
