Is Islam Compatible With The West?
Shaykh Abdal Hakim Murad
Talk by Shaykh Abdal Hakim Murad – Luton – 2009
We know from the Holy Qur’an that “East and West belong to Allah” (2:115). We also know from the manifestation of Allah’s religion throughout so many different times and places that His Guidance nourishes and uplifts humankind in any circumstance. Yet today we are dogged by the controversy of ‘Islam versus the West’; and many people assume that the two are at best incompatible, at worst utterly inimical. In this talk, Shaykh Abdal Hakim discusses this perennial debate, and attempts to break down the monolithic assumptions that often accompany it.
