Change & Modernity | Looking Back as We Look Forward by Dr. Yasir Qadhi


Not all change is bad – sometimes you must change in order to survive. In this highly controversial and paradigm-shifting talk, Shaykh Dr. Yasir Qadhi challenges us to think about change within ‘Islam’ – not the ‘Islam’ that is unchangeable, but the opinions of scholars who interpret the texts of Islam and think it is ‘Islam’. Our history has plenty of lessons for us to learn from, and modern challenges require fresh thought. There are, as always, extremes in our Ummah: those who want to change everything and make the haram into halal, and those who do not understand that the Shariah allows for some change and fresh ideas. This is a talk not to be missed!
