Quotes Made at this Event

" A good book to read. It's about the centrality of reason " -Shaikh Hamza Yusuf
"

If you want a really beautiful study of this FACT, I would recommend you read John Walbridge's book, on the Caliphate of Reason, and he shows that Muslims were obsessed with the arts of language

" -Shaikh Hamza Yusuf
"

Logic is a maligned subject in modern Islam, and if you read John Walbridge's book, you will understand how central, logic was to Islamic civilization; Absolutely central.  It was studied in all of the universities of Islam.  It’s a great tragedy that it's no longer studied.

" -Shaikh Hamza Yusuf
