Despite their lofty position, the Ahl-ul-Bayt, the family of the Prophet, have been often marginalized or misunderstood. Many Muslims are unaware or intentionally negligent of their spiritual virtues and even their racial heritage.
Dawud Walid, author of "Centering Black Narrative: Ahl-ul-Bayt, Blackness & Africa", and Hassan Lachheb of Tayseer Seminary join the podcast to discuss the whitewashing of the Ahl-ul-Bayt and being critically honest in speaking about their history. We also discuss the complicated dynamics that challenge the relationship between Sunni and Shia communities.
Along with this episode, check out our companion episode, Hasan, Husain & the Merits of Ahl-ul-Bayt, a lecture by Mokhtar Maghraoui.
