Blood Brothers #68: Pitfalls in Engaging with Secular Liberal Politics and Activism

In this candid episode of the Blood Brothers Podcast, Dilly Hussain speaks with the esteemed American Muslim academic, writer and activist, Ustad Mobeen Vaid.

Topics of discussion include:

  • Challenges of Muslim activism in light of Left/Liberal alliances.
  • Use and abuse of “minority fiqh”, maslaha and maqasid in modern Muslim activism
  • The LGBTQ question: How should Muslims in the West navigate around this matter as a “discriminated minority”?
  • When are compromises justified? Should political pragmatism have some red lines? If so, what are those red lines?
