Ep 48. Scholars and Tyrants

      Comments Off on Ep 48. Scholars and Tyrants

Very few subjects are as polarizing for Muslims as the relationship between scholars and dictators. Many scholars are often discredited as “hypocrites” and “scholars of the sultan” when they praise rulers. However, the human element and context are lacking in this discussion.

Topics addressed in this episode include the expectations average Muslims have of scholars in their interactions with rulers and the reality of relationships, including the consequences of disobedience as exemplified by historical and contemporary figures.
