eCircle: God. Allah. Well,?

Learn about, what is quite possibly, the single most important message of Islam that we are not communicating right.


by Dr Rizwan Syed

This video will show you the [email protected]  e-circle that was streamed live in April 2012. It covers a topic that impacts directly on how we understand the Creator and how we convey His essence to people. Addressing the spiritual dimensions of faith as well as a key contemporary issue, it is based on a scholarly paper by Shaykh Umar Faruq Abd-Allah called One God, Many Names,  and also touches upon communication concepts based on a paper by Shaykh John Ederer on balancing ‘Arabisation’ in Islam.
