The Greed for Ilm Podcast

This interview is with dedicated Muslimah, Heraa Hashmi. She is a 19 year old Colorado college student, who had an encounter with her classmate during a group project. Her classmate asked, "why do Muslims not condemn terrorism?" That simple question was part of a myraid of questions / comments that had propelled her to find evidence that Muslims are "in fact" condemning acts of terror. That night at home, Heraa started to do some "googling" and soon compiled a list of Muslims, a huge focus was on American Muslims, condemning terrorism. Over the next few weeks, that list grew to over 700 pages. At the suggestion of a friend, she tweeted out her work..and as they say, "the rest is history."

I am joined by Dr. Meraj Mohiuddin, an American Muslim. Educated in the United States and longing to find an intimate book in English on the life of the Prophet Muhammad (pbuh), Dr. Meraj, an American physician dedicated himself for 13 years to complete his book, Revelation. In this conversation, he shares the inspiration behind his quest for learning more about the Prophet and his hope of increasing even more love for the Prophet (pbuh) in others.

To gain a stronger understanding of the Quran, we must first learn as much as possible about he who was the "embodiment" of the Quran. Our beloved, Prophet Muhammad (pbuh).
