Ep 43. Created in a State of Weakness

The derivation and application of Islamic law rely primarily on a number of juristic principles that attempt to reflect what is understood to be divine will. That is why the Arabic term to describe it, Sharia, literally means “a way to the source”. Though some might find it arbitrary and unyielding in some aspects, there is a logic to the Sharia that can only be ascertained most clearly if one is familiar with the Quran and Sunnah, and confirmed through familiarity with research exploring the various aspects of the human experience.

Topics addressed in this episode include the legal principle of closing off the means, modern perception of religion and Islamic law, and research in psychology on delayed gratification and willpower.
