Ep. 6: Pseudoscience | ft. Heraa Hashmi
Our honored guest, Heraa Hashmi, joins us to discuss secularism in science. Continuing the discussion from our previous episode, we discuss the relationship between religion and science in academia, as well as the moral implications of attempting to divorce theology from the study of the natural world. Broaching a range of topics including mental health, medical ethics, and abortion, we delve into the biases present—and denied—in the world of supposedly objective scientific research. A clinical researcher by profession, Heraa is a graduate in Molecular, Cellular, and Developmental Biology. She is also a founding member and contributor at Traversing Tradition, an online publication geared towards examining modern society through an Islamic worldview.  Read Heraa's work: traversingtradition.com Follow Heraa on Twitter: twitter.com/caveheraa _ The Qarawiyyin Project aims to revive the tradition of Muslim women being at the forefront of discussing the most critical issues of our time from an Islamic perspective, and empower women to be active in their communities around the world in carrying Islam as a way of life.

Ep. 5: Honey, I Secularized the Kids
The TQP team discusses the concepts of secular and sacred knowledge, how they came to be defined as such, and the problems that come with these definitions. Does studying the "secular sciences" require us to leave deen at the door, and can one truly be a mu'min as a student at a secular university?  We also explore insights from the book recommendations on our University Reading List. _ University Reading List: https://qarawiyyinproject.co/2019/08/17/university-reading-list/ "Of Cannons and Canons": https://renovatio.zaytuna.edu/article/of-cannons-and-canons "Among the Disbelievers": https://renovatio.zaytuna.edu/article/among-the-disbelievers _ The Qarawiyyin Project aims to revive the tradition of Muslim women being at the forefront of discussing the most critical issues of our time from an Islamic perspective, and empower women to be active in their communities around the world in carrying Islam as a way of life.
