Ep 37. Human Nature and the Fitra

      Comments Off on Ep 37. Human Nature and the Fitra

The Prophet Muhammad ﷺ is reported to have said, “Every newborn is born upon the Fitra, then their parents will turn them into a Jew, a Christian, or a Magian.”

Topics addressed in this episode include the questions: What is the Fitra, and how does it relate to instinct and to human nature? Is morality innate or acquired? What constitutes a universal human trait? And are we born with the capacity to reason or do we acquire this from our parents and through education?
