About This Course

The question of divinities and existential issues are one of the issues that occupy many minds of our time. Quite often many questions arise, like: Is the question forbidden? Does Islam prevent the question of God and his actions? Does Islam prevent the question of wisdom from creating creation? Does Islam prohibit the question of reparation and choice? Will our faith buckle under interrogation?

In fact, such inquiring can actually lead to spiritual growth and maturity – moving from mere acceptance to owning one’s beliefs in a deep and meaningful way.

A recurring manifestation of our time is the meeting of two extremes to contrast one's understanding of the texts of the Qur'an and Sunnah and the positions of the righteous predecessors. The religious extremist prevents the question in such cases altogether, invoking misunderstood texts and an absent context, and also the non-religious extremist who claims that the question is forbidden based on the same misunderstanding as the religious extremist. Glasses are one, perspective is one, but the purposes of the viewers are different.
