This five minute video takes its queue from the Quranic verse: “Perhaps you might feel inclined to omit part of what was revealed to you, and be distressed because they say: ‘Why hasn’t a treasure been sent down to him, or why has no angels been sent along with him?’ You are only a warner, and Allah is the Guardian over all things.” [11:12]
This Meditation is about the demands being placed on Muslims to make their religious teachings align with the liberal orthodoxies of the age, and what our response to such pressures ought to be. Should we, as some are now doing, be watering down our faith teachings to make our religion more palatable to a wider secular audience? Should we compromise a few aspects of our religion in order to better our liberal credentials, thus making faith more palatable to the monoculture? These are the issues addressed in this Five Minute Meditation.
