Show Notes

The struggle for social justice has shaped many of our conversations in recent years. Issues like police brutality, income inequality, and the oppression of minorities are at the forefront of the minds of many. What does Islam have to say about our role as believers in addressing social injustices? What are the issues that we should be mindful of as we enter activist spaces? How can we navigate these spaces without compromising our faith? In this episode, host Mohamad Zaoud talks to Dr. Omar Suleiman, author of the Yaqeen Institute paper “Faithful Activism: A Sunnah Framework,” about how Muslims should approach social activism.
