Shaykh Hamza Yusuf has done a wonderful job in this lecture engaging Islam in a traditional way that is sure to earn the ears of Westerners longing for a way to relate. Although this lecture is not about universality, his use of Western literature and philosophy helps to make a larger message clear: Islam is not only for Arab, Palestinian, or Pakistani. It is for all people. Though the tradition remains the same, it can and should be able to be accessed through all cultural windows. Shaykh Hamza Yusuf, thank you for that.
I agree with you Whitney. Sh. Hamza Yusuf is an excellent speaker and caller to Islam. Alhamdulillah! May Allah (swt) bless Sh. Hamza. Ameen!
I AGREE MAY ALLAH PRESERVE HAMZA YUSUF FOR US AND THE UMMAH AND ALL THE TRADITIONAL MASHAYKH AMIN
Mohammad, ‘traditional mashaykh’..why not include all the mashaykhs?? Allah swt ‘ mercy is vast so lets not limit it.
ss! SALAM ALL THATS TRUE MY MISTAKE PLS FORGIVE ME
I think that one of the most fascinating aspects of Shaykh Hamza Yusuf’s lectures is the intricacy of his delivery and the minutia of his cross religious analysis. I don’t know if Muslims really understand the importance of that. It is very easy to carry a joyful debate with a fellow Muslim and have so few disagreements about the deen that they are rather negligible but Hamza Yusuf, unlike any other scholar I’ve ever listened to gives Muslims, especially the ones in western countries a unique ability to prove that I’m not just Muslim because my parents were but I’m Muslim because I have a clue about the creeds of my own religions and i’m also well informed about the history of Judaism and Christianity. We have to know that Islam has not changed and never will but the world in which we live in has changed drastically so we have to be ready to answer very tuff questions from disbelievers. I hope this man lives to be 125 years old (lol) because he’s Allah’s gift to Muslims in the west and all over the world.
To me, Hamza is a pure gift from allah (sw) to this Ummah, we need to take advantage of him before allah takes him back,,,,may allah preserve him for us longer,,,and reward him,,AMIN
this lecture is truly beneficial and Hamza Yusuf has explained things so very clearly. everyone should listen to it atleast once.
(but they should get rid of the McDowell’s ad on this page. the site loses credibility if such ads appear unchecked.)
that was quick. i just reported that ad and its gone. Alhamdulillah.
I have been listing and benefiting from Sheikh Hamza Yusuf’s intellectual lectures for years.
I still remembered when I listen to him firs time. I said to self I never heard a sheikh with level of inlectual and knowledge.
So prayed to Allah, Oh Allah have mercy upon Ummha and upon him Oh Allah please provides Ummha at least two hundreds sheikh like him. I would like to ask every one of you please pray to Allah and ask for more gifts like sheikhs Hamza Yusuf.
As salamu alaykum,
I could not even get past 11 minutes of this man’s talk.
May Allah guide him and us all.
He’s spreading such thoughts as:
Hamza Yusuf :
If someone does not believe in islam can be a muslim. 1st dimension….
honestly, do we really need people to confuse eachother more?
Instead of listening to speakers like him, we should read the qur’an and not attempt to derive meanings that aren’t there.
Like he says…
Eeman relates to a person’s connection with the creator
The prophet does not describe it but gives the objects of eeman…..
Who are we to take out more from that? The prophet would have mentioned all aspects of eeman if he had deemed fit and if there were more.
We can not go against the understanding of the sahaba, they are the best generation.
Peace and blessings upon all muslims and guidance for non muslims. Ameen.
May Allah forgive us all.
I forgot to send blessings upon the prophet(sallallahu alayhi wasallam)
SubhanAllah may Allah reward and bless the amazing ocean that is Shaykh Hamza, truly a gem and a gift for the Ummah, especially in the West.
Peace and blessings upon our beloved light, the mercy to the worlds RasoolAllah and his family and companions
