Ep. 28: Islamic Principles #3: Understanding the Quran
How can we make sense of Islam today? This is not only the name of this podcast, but a question that I’ve been obsessed with for decades. This series shares several first-principles that we need to keep in mind as we seek to answer this question. Some will seem basic (but need repeating) and others might be new. In both cases these meta-principles are essential tools to make sense of it all.
“We have revealed Quran and We have preserved it”, (15:9)
“no soul will bear the burdens of another”, (6:164)
if you are mindful of God He will show you a way out”, (65:3)
“I am sending a vicegerent on earth”, (2:30)
