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.
