    Ep. 8: Ramadan, Old Friend

    Allah's Messenger (ﷺ) said, "Whoever observes fasts during the month of Ramadan out of sincere faith, and hoping to attain Allah's rewards, then all his past sins will be forgiven." [Sahih Bukhari]

    Ramadan Mubarak! In this episode, the TQP team gets into the Ramadan spirit and discusses how to make the most of this blessed month — under quarantine, on your period, and through the pangs of hunger.

    Ep. 7: The Good, the Trads, and the Feminists

    The TQP team finally sits down to address the elephant in the room when it comes to discussing Muslim women's issues: feminism. Sharing our thoughts on its popularity and varied manifestations, we trace the phenomenon of adopting the feminist label among Muslims and discuss its inconsistency with the Islamic worldview.

    Ep. 6: Pseudoscience | ft. Heraa Hashmi

    Ep. 6: Pseudoscience | ft. Heraa Hashmi

    Our honored guest, Heraa Hashmi, joins us to discuss secularism in science. Continuing the discussion from our previous episode, we discuss the relationship between religion and science in academia, as well as the moral implications of attempting to divorce theology from the study of the natural world. Broaching a range of topics including mental health, medical ethics, and abortion, we delve into the biases present—and denied—in the world of supposedly objective scientific research.

    A clinical researcher by profession, Heraa is a graduate in Molecular, Cellular, and Developmental Biology. She is also a founding member and contributor at Traversing Tradition, an online publication geared towards examining modern society through an Islamic worldview.

    Ep. 5: Honey, I Secularized the Kids

    Ep. 5: Honey, I Secularized the Kids

    The TQP team discusses the concepts of secular and sacred knowledge, how they came to be defined as such, and the problems that come with these definitions. Does studying the "secular sciences" require us to leave deen at the door, and can one truly be a mu'min as a student at a secular university?

     We also explore insights from the book recommendations on our University Reading List.

    Ep. 3: I, Keyboard Warrior

    Has communal discourse among Muslims become polarized? In this episode, we discuss the ways in which some are addressing liberal tremors in the Muslim community, where they may fall short, and how to begin gathering the broken pieces. 

    This conversation was inspired by an article recently published by Al-Madina Institute entitled "Why We Must Recapture Scholarly Discourse from Extreme Bloggers": almadinainstitute.org/blog/why-we-must-recapture-scholarly-discourse-from-extreme-bloggers
