This is an extremely significant lecture for every muslim which deals with many questions such as: why do we have to follow a madhhab?, what is a madhhab?, why cant we just follow the Quran and Sunna?, and many more. Imam Zaid explains what the 4 madhahib are (Hanafi, Hanbali, Maliki, Shafi’i). He also speaks about cigarettes and where Islam stands on that issue. He also talks about the 3 sources of Shari’a (Quran, Sunna, and the concensus of scholars). And he also addresses numerous other topics.

A wonderful speech. Searingly succinct, painfully precise and the courage to tell it like it is to the right crowd.

Dear Friends,

Dr. Nurit Peled-Elhanan is the mother of Smadar Elhanan, 13 years old when killed by a suicide bomber in Jerusalem in September 1997. Below is Nurit’s speech made on International Women’s Day in Strasbourg earlier this month. Please listen to the words of a bereaved mother, whose daughter fell victim to a vicious, indiscriminating terrorist attack. I wish her words will enter the hearts of all peace seekers in our troubled and divided world.

For better days,
Professor Avraham Oz Department of Hebrew and Comparative Literature University of Haifa
