Dr. Khaled Abou El Fadl: "The Qur'an, the Sunnah and the Intellect," Friday Khutbah, 6.10.2016
Dr. Abou El Fadl delivers yet another powerful explication of the Instruments of Revelation--the Qur'an and the Sunnah--and the Gift of Continuous Revelation--the Intellect. All three--the Qur'an, the Sunnah and the Intellect--are divine gifts, interdependent and necessarily intertwined, that are tools to be utilized to discover God through our duty of worship (taabud) and reflection (tafakur), especially during Ramadan. He explains the role of each--the Qur'an, the Sunnah and the Intellect--and what happens when one is taken alone without the others. He reminds that those who have God as their Anchor need no other guidance, and those who anchor to other than God are as if adrift, unable to anchor to anything true or real.
