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.

On September 15th, 2017 I was invited by the Muslim Student Association at the University of New South Wales in Sydney, Australia to participate in a discussion panel the Peter Slezak, a philosopher of science. The general theme was the question "If God Exists, Where is He?" We spoke for close to 3 hours on a number of topics under this wide umbrella, which included what is God, what is science, the nature of belief, the nature of morality, rationalism vs. empiricism, the problem of evil, and ethics. 

This episode is the audio recording of the evening.

The relationship between Islam and Science, and the topic of Evolutionary Theory are among the chief concerns many young Muslims find themselves having to deal with. In addition, many Muslims undertake graduate level degree programs in Islamic Studies departments in Western universities, but they hardly have spent time in traditional study of the religion, and most haven't undertaken courses on epistemology. It is therefore not surprising in this climate of intellectual chaos to find an increasing number of Muslims express doubts about Islam.

Topics addressed in this episode include brief remarks on the nature of Islamic Studies in the West, Science and Evolution, and the role that doubt has in establishing faith.
