Friday Night Reflections: Compassion, Truth and Justice - Commemorating Imam Ali
On the occasion of Yawm-e Ali, we renew our commitment to the principles that Hazrat Ali exemplified, particularly the ethics of care, compassion, generosity, integrity, tolerance, forgiveness, brotherhood, and service to others. As caliph and as Imam, Hazrat Ali established a paradigm of Muslim leadership centred on the ethics of Islam, and principles of just and moral leadership. He elucidated the notion of the intellect as a facet of faith that is to be developed and used in keeping with the ethical imperative of Islam, and which is intimately connected with the spirituality of the faith.
This week on Friday Night Reflections, host Reena Jessa sits down with scholar Dr. Hussein Rashid (Columbia University) to reflect on the life and example of Hazrat Ali through stories of courage and conviction.
With new musical expressions, as always, to refresh and renew!
