Show Notes

The Prophet Muhammad (ﷺ) compared the believers to one body; when one limb aches, the whole body feels it. However, the members of this body come from different backgrounds, and this can sometimes cause us to become disconnected from one another and from our responsibilities to each other. 

What can we learn from the different experiences of Muslims from different socioeconomic backgrounds? How can poverty and wealth affect our relationship with God? 

In a special episode of DoubleTake, host Mohamad Zaoud sits down with Dr. Tahir Wyatt, the Director of the Systematic Theology Department at Yaqeen Institute, to discuss his background, his work in the inner city of Philadelphia, the relationship between material circumstances and faith, and how we can find our place in our local communities.
