About this episode

Shaykh Yasir Qadhi analyses the limits of our political involvement in the social issues that have taken the world by storm.

We should realise that we should not jump into the bandwagon simply because the majority of those around us are doing the same. Our interpretation of support for a cause must be decided by the theology of Islam. Only if the paradigm of Islam allows it should it be taken up for support by the Muslims.

Islam respects chastity, modesty, dignity and all good values and we will not get popularized by pleasing the creation of Allah. Rather it is the Creator who we need to aim to please endlessly to ensure a good life in the Akhirah. We should never forget about the theological benefits and true spirituality.

As Shaykh Yasir says, ‘If you don't wake up for Fajr, you are not WOKE, you are BROKE, and it is not a JOKE."
