Hamza Yusuf on Islam | Closer to Truth

Synopsis

How does Islam address big questions in philosophy of religion? How does Islam approach the Problem of Evil, arguments for the existence of God, mystical experiences and the relationship between the creator and the created?

Hamza Yusuf Hanson is the president of Zaytuna College in Berkeley, California, the first accredited Muslim liberal arts college in the United States. In this interview with host Robert Lawrence Kuhn, he discusses God, existence, and spirituality from the Islamic perspective.

The Global Philosophy of Religion Project aims to make the philosophy of religion a truly global field by promoting the scholarly work of researchers from underrepresented regions and religious traditions. It is led by Professor Yujin Nagasawa and hosted by the University of Birmingham. This interview was conducted by Robert Lawrence Kuhn, host of Closer To Truth.

This project was made possible in part through the support of a grant from the John Templeton Foundation.
