From the “Contentions” Series
I was recently reading through the “Contentions” series by Sheikh Abdul-Hakim Murad (TJ Winter) and was fascinated by some of the amazing (and perplexing) statements he makes. In my quest to understand some of them, I came across a blog that attempts the very same thing. I’ve copied my favourite contentions and I am posting them below. I will link to the original post on Yursil.com. As I go through the series, insha’Allah, I will continue to post those that I find particularly intriguing.
- Judaism is dead; but we are going to give it a magnificent funeral. (Rabbi Zunz, fount of liberal Judaism.) Is Islam the reverse? And if so, what are the grounds for dialogue?
On a completely different note, I highly recommend this post at ManiacMuslim.com titled “Agitating Adjectives”. It had me laughing out loud!
