I just recently stumbled across this video, and I found it incredibly interesting... It's a discussion that took place (recently I think?) at Oxford University, and while it's fairly long (almost 3 hours) I think it's well worth it to hear these contemporary scholars/academics discuss these important but rarely tackled issues. If you have time, please try to watch it, and if you don't, then try to watch it bit by bit over the next few days. I'd love to see what other people think of the video, the speakers, and the ideas they bring up... And I'd also like it if the video could spark some discussion here, since I think we could all learn from that. :p

The first speaker (Hamza Yusuf) begins at about 15 minutes into the video. The second speaker (Tariq Ramadan) begins at about one hour in, and at about 2 hours in the Q&A session starts.




[I've noticed that some people don't really like Hamza Yusuf, although they never seem to explain why... If you're one of those people, I ask that you try to listen to what's being said and then respond, or at least explain to me for once why you have a problem with him... I'd really like to know. :p]

Hamza Yusuf? Tariq Ramadan? BBC? Guardian? Channel 4? Reforming Islam From Oxford?

Islam of course needs to reform. It is nothing much now.

Hm?

Neither of the speakers talks about changing Islam in any way...

I watched most of what Hamza Yusuf had to say. Very interesting. Muslims should listen to what he has to say about the word "reform" before judging.

"Islamic reform" is not "Reform Islam".
