“Why Islam is True” is a series of 40 short presentations that analyze the claim, “Islam is true,” by dividing it into a series of sub-claims and then evaluating their truth by examining the evidence for them, as well as the evidence against them. As they do this, the presentations explain the relationship between Islam and science; the fallaciousness of the arguments of contemporary atheists; the relationship between Islam and other faith-traditions; the role of prophecy in human history; the nature of life, death, and the human soul; and the purpose of human existence.

    12: Who Designed the Designer? – Why Islam is True with Shaykh Hamza Karamali

     







    Atheists object to the argument for God’s existence from design by asking the question, “Who designed the designer?” This objection is, in fact, a sound objection because the design argument in its common formulation by Christian theists is, in fact, flawed. But it is not a valid objection to the inferences that Muslim theologians make from design because they make a different argument.

    While the presentations are all grounded in the traditional Islamic sciences—particularly the sciences of Islamic theology (‘ilm al-tawhid), Islamic logic (mantiq), Qur’anic exegesis (tafsir), and legal theory (usul al-fiqh)—their goal is to answer the questions that any open-minded and thinking graduate of a contemporary high-school or university—Muslim or not—would ask about Islam.



    The conclusion of this series of presentations is that God does, in fact, exist; that the Prophet Muhammad (God bless him and give him peace) was, in fact, His messenger; that He did, in fact, teach us the purpose of our existence on earth; and that we will, in fact, be resurrected after our deaths to stand before and be judged by God.

    11: Science Reveals God’s Unrestricted Agency – Why Islam is True with Shaykh Hamza Karamali

    11: Science Reveals God’s Unrestricted Agency – Why Islam is True with Shaykh Hamza Karamali

    Modern science has revealed that God can do anything. We have always discerned purposes in the universe--the purpose of our eyes is for us to see and the purpose of our ears is for us to hear. But modern science has delved deeper than ever before into these purposes to reveal a unimaginable, unfathomable, undeniable intricacies in a way that God made the universe. These intricacies incontrovertibly reveal that God can do absolutely anything.

    10 – God is a Volitional Agent

    10 – God is a Volitional Agent

    People have historically believed in two kinds of necessary being. Non-religious philosophers such as Aristotle and Avicenna argued for the existence of a necessary being who is the necessary and volitionless cause of the universe. Religious believers, on the other hand--Muslims, Christians, and Jews--have held that the necessary being who made the universe is someone who freely chose to create it, that He is alive, and that He has knowledge, will, and power. This presentation gives evidence for why the religious believers are right and why the non-religious philosophers are wrong.

    09 – God Did Not Begin to Exist

    09 – God Did Not Begin to Exist

    The beginning of the universe is evidence for the existence of a being that did not begin to exist, just as the contingency of the universe is evidence for the existence of a being that is not contingent. In this short episode, Shaykh Hamza recaps both of these arguments and concludes a series of presentations (Episodes 2 to 9) that show that the universe is evidence for the existence of a being who is necessary and beginningless.

Excellent work

Notice how the other negative review has absolutely nothing of substance, just baseless complaints. Interesting how the one complaining about logic uses absolutely none with zero logical refutations in his lame attempt to desperately justify his weak position. So desperately so that he’s writing a useless review here.

Letter from an ex Muslim

Listened to the first two episodes and couldn't take it. The circular logic, the absolute inability to use logic... The whole thing was a joke.

I thought this podcast would be worthwhile but this is just another disappointing theist with the same recycled arguments. No Evolution in this neighborhood.
