The Reliever (al-Munfarijah) is a poem composed by the great Tunisian scholar Yusuf ibn Muhammad at-Tawozari at-Tilimsanī (d. 1119 AD/513 AH). He was known for his mastery of the various Islamic sciences but his erudition and rhetorical abilities became his defining feature to the degree that he was known as ibn an-Nahawi (Son of the Grammarian).

al-Munfarijah is one of the most famous poems recited in North Africa and generally in the Islamic world. ibn an-Nahawi composed it in response to a request from his family who were living under an oppressive ruler. Ever since this poem has been taken up by Muslims and it became widely known for its efficacy. The poem is a combination of applied theology, spiritual counseling, and prayer. Reciting this poem in times of difficulty with a proper understanding of its meanings is known to bring relief.

I usually reserve book discussions and reviews for Andalus Book Club. However, in this episode, I chose to go through a particular book, "Radical Skin, Moderate Masks" by Yassir Morsi, because it’s a good representation of how a new generation of Muslim activists and Muslims in academia are thinking about the world and our place in it.

Topics addressed in this episode include the definition of autoethnographic writing, qualitative vs quantitative research, rationality, how to think about power dynamics in the world, critical race theory, the racialization of Islam and the construction of Muslim identity in the West, and the search for an authentic Islam.

Islamic edutainment has failed in many respects to engender an Islamic ethos within the average Muslim. Are celebrity speakers, the culture of Muslim fandom, and sound bytes of curated content just a hollow shell of education, with more style than substance?

In this far-reaching conversation on the ImanWire Podcast, we discussed the phenomenon of Islamic edutainment, the impact of a media-centric culture on both education and the soul, and several other topics.

Muslim activists involved in social justice movements are navigating a scene in which they ally with groups such as those promoting LGBQIT practices to be normalized and some have become voices for same-sex marriage campaigns. In doing so, they have abandoned an essential Islamic duty to command good and forbid evil and reversed it.

Topics addressed in this episode include the responsibility that comes with being a Muslim, paradigms of intellectual thought underpinning social justice activism in light of the Quran, changing attitudes towards homosexual practice and same-sex marriage, and a survey of the Quran's account of what happened with Lot and his people who rejected him.

What is the point of what you do? Whether it's educational, career, or business pursuits, life is filled with transitions that end with the ultimate transition from this stage of our existence to the next. As we pass from this world we take nothing with us, and when we meet the angels in the grave we get hit with the reality that none of our titles, accolades, and material wealth meant nothing in and of themselves. Arriving at this realization before our death can trigger an existential crisis. This is not a matter of addressing our specific purpose, but a matter of answering the larger question of life's purpose.

Topics addressed in this episode include the conception of Islam as a state of being as opposed to a religion, what makes humans different from animals, and the Quranic conception of how knowledge of God is attained.

The approach to the Islamic Tradition in general and to Sufism in specific that is adopted by Western Muslims drives many to partake in practices and in some cases life-altering life decisions that make one fall victim to a classic deception of Iblees packaged as a spiritual calling. The previous episode garnered a polarized reaction that called for further commentary on the topic. 

Topics addressed in this episode include the need to study Arabic, what a tariqa and following a shaykh entail and how it can become problematic, as well as the nature of Hadras and why I'm against it.

The religious drive and desire for spiritual attainment can be exploited if one doesn't know how to distinguish between the pursuit of Truth and the pursuit of experiencing a high. In this episode, the issue of pledging allegiance to a shaykh and a tariqa is discussed within the context of psychology and Islamic learning.

Ritual acts of worship in Islam are intimately linked with natural phenomena, and with the current reliance upon technology, many have created an artificial division that has resulted in the deprivation of the spiritual dimension of these rituals. This bonus episode features a Friday khutba delivered on the first Friday after Ramadan 1439/2018 was concluded with the usual debates about how to determine what day Eid fell on. This is not about whether calculations or moonsighting is valid. Rather, it's about recognizing the spiritual ramifications of the decision to follow calculations and how that impacts our knowledge of God and in turn our relationship with Him.

Is covering the hair for women really obligatory as part of the Hijab? How can one make their intention for the sake of God for everything without making it exhausting to continuously do so? Is working to improve one's situation a sign of lacking acceptance of God's tests to us? These questions and others from the listeners were included in this wide-varying episode.

Fasting is a practice that according to the Quran has been prescribed upon Muslims as it has been prescribed upon those who have come before. At the external superficial level, it's described as the abstaining from eating, drinking, and having intimate sexual relations from the break of dawn until sunset. However, there is much more to this practice that one must be mindful off lest they risk being included in the Hadith stating that many who fast get nothing from it other than hunger and thirst.

This 5-part series explores the inner dimensions of fasting through covering two texts from Imam Abu Hāmid al-Ghazaālī's magnum opus "Ihya' Uloom ad'Deen" (Revivification of the Religious Sciences". The first text covered was "The Book of Breaking the Two Desires", and the second was "The Book of the Secrets of Fasting".

What passes off as "rational" today is nothing more than a cognitive exercise in the pursuit of rationalizing the fulfillment of whims and desires. Given the dominance of various -isms present in a variety of social movements, it is important to question their merit and to what degree can we be justified in participating in them.

What does it mean to be a Muslim feminist? How does feminism align with Islamic theology? And what does toxic masculinity come? As these questions continue to be discussed by various figures, including Muslims, the cosmological and theological perspectives are often omitted from the conversation.

In this episode is a reading of and commentary on an article I recently published in ImanWire where I tackle these issues using Islamic theology and cosmology as the springboard to evaluate how they're being discussed in the prevailing modern paradigm of philosophical naturalism and postmodernism.

Free speech is an often-invoked principle to justify vitriolic and hateful rhetoric against racial and religious groups. However, the philosophical argument for free speech does not necessarily support the form in which the principle of free speech is being invoked in these cases. Furthermore, current research suggests that the issue here is not about the principle of free speech as much as it about the ability to express biased attitudes without having to face consequences.

Topics addressed in this episode include the nature of free speech, why it must be defended in terms of the function it is intended to serve in civil society, and how the principle of free speech is deployed by racists who are defending other racists.

What is Jerusalem worth? What kind of attachment does being a Muslim entail to the Holy Land?

The recent announcement from U.S. President Donald Trump that recognizes Jerusalem as the official capital of Israel has created massive outcries and lamentations over the grim prospects for peace. However, from a spiritual and Quranic standpoint, much good has come out from this announcement. We just need to have the right perspective to see it.

Topics discussed in this episode include the status of Jerusalem in Islam and the attitude a Muslim should adopt with regards to their relationship to the Holy Land.

Very few subjects are as polarizing for Muslims as the relationship between scholars and dictators. Many scholars are often discredited as "hypocrites" and "scholars of the sultan" when they praise rulers. However, the human element and context are lacking in this discussion.

Topics addressed in this episode include the expectations average Muslims have of scholars in their interactions with rulers and the reality of relationships, including the consequences of disobedience as exemplified by historical and contemporary figures.

The body is a sacred trust from God and similar to other material possessions we have under our care in this world we will be asked about how we took care of it. How we physically look is a manifestation of how we treat our bodies, and how we treat our bodies manifests in our mindset and how we conduct our lives. All this has a direct impact on our spiritual development.

Topics addressed in this episode include the relationship between the impact of stress on the brain and physical exertion, the importance of exercise and eating habits, and life lessons learned in the gym.
