When I’m not in the mood to listen to music or watch TV, there is nothing better than listening to a good podcast!

Why Islam Is True by Shaykh Hamza Karamali

“‘Why Islam is True’ is a series of 40 short presentations that analyze the claim, ‘Islam is true,’ by diving it into a series of subclaims 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 the contemporary atheist; 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)–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, His messenger; that He did, in fact, teach us the purpose of our existence on earth; and that we will, in fact, be resurrected after our deaths to stand before ad be judged by God.”

I don’t think I need to comment on this one, but there are only eight episodes right now. They are very much worth the listen though.
