Secularism postures itself as a neutral body, but it’s anything but. Its commitments on how religion can enter the public sphere influence the way we think about our faith, and in turn interact with our scholarship and scholars. In fact, it is one of the reasons for the erosion of trust in religious authority.
Dr. Usaama al-Azami joins Imam Tom Facchine in discussing the shifts in our understanding of religious interpretation and authority and how we can better engage with our scholarship.
