Shaykh Yasir Qadhi delves into the theory of possibly reconstructing the human mind. Is there a necessity for it? And if there is, what would be the most convenient and appropriate approach? In this inspiring talk, the Shaykh acquaints us with the need to open up to embrace the idea of an independently thinking Ummah entwined with the Islamic Shariah.
The initial times saw Muslims being the ones who had mastered Islamic knowledge and using this wisdom , they were fully capable of guiding and enabling progress of the entire Ummah effortlessly. The Ummah looked upon these scholars for adapting to the Shariah comfortably while at the same time also adopting external influences to go by the events in their lives.
However, we are in a conundrum of sorts where the Ummah are exposed to only a trivial amount of broad minded scholars of Islam and secular sciences. The narrow mindedness of the remainder of them leads to a grave predicament for the Muslim Ummah and endangers the principles of our faith.
