Modern Ideologies And Movements

Posted · Add Comment


In the eighth module of School of Aqidah’s Seminary, we discuss new- age thought that seeks to offer alternate perspectives of Islam from the lenses of parallel movements that share perceived similarities with the objectives of the religion.

The shenanigans of the post-truth era have raised question marks over the role and relevance of religion. As a result, various movements have sought to mould religion into an accomodative feature in the new-age narrative of human progression. These attempts to fit religion into the global canvas have been met with mixed reactions from various voices that speak about religion.

Controversies that surround the religion serve as obstacles for these modern movements.

Problematic texts have been blamed for a range of issues, from that of social constructs, specifically human rights and gender roles, to issues of fundamentals, such as the two extremes of mysticism and exclusivism.

Join us as we scavenge through the rubble of new-age narratives to seek truth in the age of post-truth.
