Shaykh Abdal Hakim Murad

The Curse & the Promise: Religion and Violence, by Shaykh Abdal-Hakim Murad

Religion and violence, reflecting upon both how faith can become the cause and perpetrator of conflict and persecution, and also the victim, has been a central focus in this year’s Autumn lecture series at St Martin-in-the-Fields, a church in London, England. But can our faith and our understanding of God also provide the promise for the healing of our nations? The lecture series covered the perspective of the three Abrahamic Faiths – Judaism, Christianity and Islam. St Martin-in-the-Fields invited Shaykh Abdal-Hakim Murad as a guest speaker to explore these themes from the perspectives of the Islamic faith.

This is the main segment of the program. Listen to the Question & Answer session elsewhere.
