Islamic Metaphysics


It amounts, in the end, to a very extreme and capricious form of nominalism.  From the makers of the video, Orthodox Shahada:


This video is the first in a multi-part series produced by me and Qai which is concerned with interlinked areas of Sunni Islamic theology. This first video essay concerns a metaphysical system which I believe to be highly understated as it is intimately interlaced with and forms the conceptual backbone to many classical Sunni creedal doctrines. The highly perplexing and unusual nature of this metaphysics does not evade regular people when they first hear about it, as we time and again observe comments by lay Muslims reflecting that they have either simply never heard of these theological views or that they do not believe them to be representative of traditional Islamic thought. 


This video will confirm a claim that I made in my previous video on philosophy in religious world views, namely the incorporation and appropriation of pagan philosophy into Islam’s rational theological tradition. In that video I explain why this is not necessarily a problem in principle, but that it is a problem for Islamic apologists to brandish the Gorgon’s head of pagan philosophy when dialoguing with Christians, since philosophy was readily employed by their very own Islamic theologians.

Watch here:


Holy Ælfred the Great, King of England, South Patron, pray for us sinners at the Souð, unworthy though we are!

Anathema to the Union!
