Event Date3/27/2018
Event LocationZaytuna College, California
Event DescriptionA conversation on our primordial nature with Dr. Umar Faruq Abd-Allah, the American Muslim theologian and scholar, and Hamza Yusuf, president of Zaytuna College and editor-in-chief of Renovatio. Our prophetic tradition teaches that every child is born with a natural disposition, or fitra. The great minds of all religious traditions grounded their outlook about human beings in this universal reality. Today, however, this profound first principle has been lost, and our distinctiveness as human beings is challenged by contemporary fields, from biology to psychology to social sciences and beyond. How do we then know the truth of our shared natural disposition? In other words, how do we learn to be human? Part 1
