Left or Right? The Straight Path Please

Left or Right? The Straight Path Please

About this podcast

This podcast is based on a series of face-to-face and online lectures presented to Muslim women with the goal of developing competence in understanding and navigating our way through the social, cultural and political challenges of our contemporary times. By looking at the world through the Straight Path metaphor, we engage with contemporary right wing (status quo) and left wing (conflict theory) ideologies to understand, analyse and critique them from their origins and development into their current forms. We take a critical approach to BOTH conservative and Marxist-based theories, with a particular focus on neo-conservatism, neo-colonialism, feminism and gender-related issues, the impact these ideologies are having on Muslim women and societies today and how to overcome the many challenges we face personally, in our families and in the wider community. Please contact us for questions, comments, discussion miskwomen@instagram miskwomen@gmail.com Please join our private, women only Facebook group: https://www.facebook.com/groups/miskwomenhalaqa We also present a complementary podcast on textual competency - Imam al-Ghazali's Beginning of Guidance (Bidayat al-Hidayat) for Muslim women, where we study traditional commentaries on the book in detail. https://beginning-of-guidance.captivate.fm Subscribe to both podcasts for free!
