Morality in the Quran

About this podcast...

“It is our effort, not our perfection, that is our saving grace”, writes Shaykh Muhammad Abdullah Draz, one of the most important Muslim scholars of the 20th century in his seminal book, Morality in the Quran. In this fascinating podcast, Dr Basma Abdelgafar, who translated, edited and revised this neglected masterpiece, tells us why it’s essential to pay proper attention to Shaykh Draz and his forgotten work. She expertly guides us through questions such as: what actually constitutes morality, do we need religion to be moral, and what does it really mean to live a divine life? Bringing clarity to a deeply complex yet crucial area, Dr Basma offers a gateway to the mind of a scholar considered to be in a ‘league of his own’.
