How can Ibn Taymiyya help us today? With Prof Carl Sharif El-Tobgui


Here is the fantastic interview with the luminously brilliant Dr El-Tobgui, Professor of Arabic and Islamic Studies at Brandeis University in the US. We discussed his fascinating book about Ibn Taymiyya on Reason and Revelation. 

I asked him: if Ibn Taymiyya were alive today would he say Muslims must believe in an historical Adam because of the Qur’an? Evolution? Dr El-Tobgui’s answer will prove helpful to many. I will extract a shorter video that deals just with this question tomorrow, inshallah.
