Salam alaikum brothers and sisters, I will be speaking LIVE today at 9pm (UK/GMT time) on Islam Channel on the topic of Individualism – the creed and foundation of Western philosophy and political thought. It is as central to western worldview, as tawheed is to the Islamic one.
Most of you probably have never heard of it by its proper name, it usually goes by other names and manifestations, like ‘freedom of the individual’, ‘human rights’, to cultural manifestations in statements such as ‘express your individuality’, ‘follow your heart’, and my personal ‘favourite’: ‘you’re special’.
Hopefully, we will be discussing the irrationality of the dogma of Individualism, its fallacies, the issues caused by its application, and how the Muslim community in the West can intellectually protect ourselves from it, and challenge it, as part of our mission to be witnesses (shuhada) to the truth.
The host is Mohammed Mustafa, and I will be joined on the panel by Saleem Chagtai (iERA), inshallah.
For those of you not in the UK, you may be able to view it on Islam Channel’s online live stream:
