The Nafs is the King of the Millenium”-Shaykh Abdal-Hakim Murad

Who are we? How do we build our “identities” as individuals? How do some of the existential, philosophical discourse of the modern and post-modern era influence our modern culture and identity? More importantly, how does it impact our Deen?
In this fascinating discourse, Ustadh Giovanni Herran of Respect Graduate School provides an academic exploration of the modern and post-modern philosophical constructs of the self; and how it relates to our popular culture, our religion, and much more.
