    Ep 92. The Prayer

    59:30

    The Beloved ﷺ described prayer as the "pillar of the religion". As Muslims, we're commanded to establish the five daily prayers. For many of us, the routine of it can lead us to becoming absent-minded as we perform them. Without presence, we fail to grasp the true significance of what it means to be in connection with our Lord. In this episode the significance of prayer is elaborated based on the Hikam, or Aphorisms, of ibn 'Atā-illah and the commentary on them by Sidi ibn 'Ajībah.

    Ep 91. Hamas and the Spirit of Palestinian Resistance

    44:16

    The greatest weapon in modern warfare is the media, which Malcolm X warned us can make the oppressed appear as the oppressor and the oppressor appear as the oppressed. Nothing demonstrates this so clearly as in the case of Palestine. At the time of recording this episode Israel's terrorist army was entering its 8th day of bombardments on Gaza after having in the previously backed illegal settlers expelling Palestinians from their homes in Sheikh Jarrah and attacked worshippers in al-Aqsa Mosque. I wrote an article about Hamas back in 2014 during the Israeli assault on Gaza at the time. Sadly, not much has changed. I’m re-sharing it because we all need to get our facts straight and not fall victim to the rhetoric and gaslighting of propagandists, some of whom are the duped ones of our own community. This episode is an audio version of the article.

    Ep 90. On Obedience and the Month We Ignore

    1:22:25

    As we enter the month of Sha'bān we must use this time in the way the Beloved ﷺ taught us - to prepare for the month of Ramadan. Sha'bān is a blessed month in which our deeds for the entire year are raised up to be presented to the Lord of the Worlds. Our Beloved ﷺ would fast more during this month than any other, and our scholars and predecessors encouraged approaching this month as a training period for Ramadan. In this episode the virtues of Sha'bān are discussed and a recording of a recent live session at Al-Andalus Academy's Halaqa covering the Hikam of Imam ibn 'Atā-illah that discuss obedience to Allah is shared.

    Ep 89. Mistakes Were Made (but not by me)

    1:46:10

    Alhamdulillah, we’re now moving into our fifth year at Al-Andalus Book Club and with that comes our fifth booklist. My tongue is incapable of expressing how grateful I am for this blessing; the conversations we’ve had and the ideas we’ve been able to develop over the years with each book we read.   2020 was a strange year. It was one that forced us back to fundamentals. Our relationships with God, ourselves, family and the world around us. One of the themes that dominated the past year was the nature of science and what expertise (if any) is required to discuss (with authority) an opinion in relation to science. What is science? How do we attain knowledge? Can we agree on any scientific fundamentals for discussion on which we can build knowledge and understanding? Intersecting with that we’ve seen discussions on God, reason and whether we can have science and religion speak to each other on these topics rather than as mutually exclusive areas of knowledge and practice.   It seemed fortuitous that one of the reasons I launched Al-Andalus Academy in January of 2020 was to offer courses that would synthesise our knowledge of the physical and spiritual world as Islamic civilizations have done in the past, without realizing that a pandemic would hit only a couple of months later that year and starkly bring these issues into focus.   With this in mind, this year’s booklist will focus on the nature of human reason and scientific inquiry and its relationship to Islam. In this episode I'm sharing the recording of the first webinar for our first book of the year, Mistakes Were Made (but not by me) by Carol Tavris and Elliot Aronson.

    Ep 88. Death and What Matters in Life

    46:49

    Death is the transition from this ephemeral world to the eternal abode. It's an inevitable part of this life. Yet, many of us live as if we're going to be here forever and get stunned when this calamity befalls us. Topics addressed in this episode include the response to death, the proper perspective this world should be seen through, and the need for a constant meditation on death in order for us to be prepared for it.

    Ep 87. Faith for the Occasion: Are We Putting Islam in a Box?

    1:12:32

    I was invited on November 14th, 2020 by Northwestern University's MSA to give a talk to their cohort. Given the current travel restrictions, we had to do it over Zoom. Topics addressed in this talk include Cartesian dualism contrasted with Islamic dualism, building a stronger connection with Allah, and spiritual cultivation through everyday tasks and work.

    Ep 86. Imanophobia and the Adoption of Aesthetic Sensibility by Muslims

    50:04

    As Muslims have become increasingly integrated into social justice movements and the entertainment industry, many prominent figures are taking actions that align with the dominant ideology in these spheres. Despite their apparent unrelatedness, a common theme runs through Muslim hijabi Instagram influencers taking off their hijabs, comedians mocking Islamic practices like the dua, and political allegiances made in the name of combating Islamophobia. In this episode, the distinction made by the late Algerian sociologist and philosopher Malek Bennabi between aesthetic and moral sensibilities as they manifest in the lived experience of the Western European and the Muslim is used as a framework to understand the current trends observed among Muslims in the West.

    Ep 84. Coronavirus and Mosques

    1:06:25

    We live in perilous times and the current coronavirus has many confused and in panic. Mainstream news and social media have added more to the bewilderment and many feel the current lockdowns, cancellations of events, and suspensions of Jumua prayers are overreactions.  Topics discussed in this episode include: What are coronavirus and COVID-19? Where did it come from? How is it transmitted? How does it impact the body? Signs and symptoms? Why are governments and people reacting the way they are? How should we as Muslims respond individually and collectively? _______________________ Al-Andalus Academy https://al-andalus-academy.thinkific.com/ Become a Supporter through Patreon: www.patreon.com/MohamedGhilan Website https://alandalusacademy.com/ Facebook Page www.facebook.com/drmohamedghilan Twitter twitter.com/MohamedGhilan iTunes Podcast itunes.apple.com/ca/podcast/moham…lan/id1093009815
