About Us

“Why Islam is True” is a series of 40 short presentations that analyze the claim, “Islam is true,” by dividing it into a series of sub-claims and then evaluating their truth by examining the evidence for them, as well as the evidence against them. As they do this, the presentations explain the relationship between Islam and science; the fallaciousness of the arguments of contemporary atheists; the relationship between Islam and other faith-traditions; the role of prophecy in human history; the nature of life, death, and the human soul; and the purpose of human existence. While the presentations are all grounded in the traditional Islamic sciences—particularly the sciences of Islamic theology (‘ilm al-tawhid), Islamic logic (mantiq), Qur’anic exegesis (tafsir), and legal theory (usul al-fiqh)—their goal is to answer the questions that any open-minded and thinking graduate of a contemporary high-school or university—Muslim or not—would ask about Islam. The conclusion of this series of

12: Who Designed the Designer? – Why Islam is True with Shaykh Hamza Karamali

Atheists object to the argument for God’s existence from design by asking the question, “Who designed the designer?” This objection is, in fact, a sound objection because the design argument in its common formulation by Christian theists is, in fact, flawed. But it is not a valid objection to the inferences that Muslim theologians make from design because they make a different argument. “Why Islam is True” is a series of 40 short presentations that analyze the claim, “Islam is true,” by dividing it into a series of sub-claims and then evaluating their truth by examining the evidence for them, as well as the evidence against them.

11: Science Reveals God’s Unrestricted Agency – Why Islam is True with Shaykh Hamza Karamali

Modern science has revealed that God can do anything. We have always discerned purposes in the universe--the purpose of our eyes is for us to see and the purpose of our ears is for us to hear. But modern science has delved deeper than ever before into these purposes to reveal a unimaginable, unfathomable, undeniable intricacies in a way that God made the universe. These intricacies incontrovertibly reveal that God can do absolutely anything. While the presentations are all grounded in the traditional Islamic sciences—particularly the sciences of Islamic theology (‘ilm al-tawhid), Islamic logic (mantiq), Qur’anic exegesis (tafsir), and legal theory (usul al-fiqh)—their goal is to answer the questions that any open-minded and thinking graduate of a contemporary high-school or university—Muslim or not—would ask about Islam. The conclusion of this series of presentations is that God does, in fact, exist; that the Prophet Muhammad (God bless him and give him peace) was, in fact, Hi...

11: Science Reveals God’s Unrestricted Agency – Why Islam is True with Shaykh Hamza Karamali

10 – God is a Volitional Agent

People have historically believed in two kinds of necessary being. Non-religious philosophers such as Aristotle and Avicenna argued for the existence of a necessary being who is the necessary and volitionless cause of the universe. Religious believers, on the other hand--Muslims, Christians, and Jews--have held that the necessary being who made the universe is someone who freely chose to create it, that He is alive, and that He has knowledge, will, and power. This presentation gives evidence for why the religious believers are right and why the non-religious philosophers are wrong. “Why Islam is True” is a series of 40 short presentations that analyze the claim, “Islam is true,” by dividing it into a series of sub-claims and then evaluating their truth by examining the evidence for them, as well as the evidence against them.

09 – God Did Not Begin to Exist

The beginning of the universe is evidence for the existence of a being that did not begin to exist, just as the contingency of the universe is evidence for the existence of a being that is not contingent. In this short episode, Shaykh Hamza recaps both of these arguments and concludes a series of presentations (Episodes 2 to 9) that show that the universe is evidence for the existence of a being who is necessary and beginningless. “Why Islam is True” is a series of 40 short presentations that analyze the claim, “Islam is true,” by dividing it into a series of sub-claims and then evaluating their truth by examining the evidence for them, as well as the evidence against them.
