In this first episode of Soul of Islam Radio, Ahmad and I discuss the deeper meaning of the “Soul of Islam,” as well as our hopes and vision for the podcast.
I share that Islam without spirituality is not unlike a body without a soul, and that the religion only truly comes to life when the inner dimension is embraced and honored in conjunction with its external elements.
The Soul of Islam
In “The Soul of Islam,” you’ll learn about the two dimensions of Islam, the three stages of development within the Islamic spiritual path, the goal and purpose of Islam, and much more.
We also discuss how religion without its internal spiritual dimension, or its “soul,” easily becomes the antithesis of its true purpose, and that rather than heal and make whole, it then harms and fractures.
Only by honoring the “Soul of Islam” and cultivating sincerity, humility, compassion and love can a human being fulfill the true purpose of religion and revelation.
