This week’s #AcademicSpotlight showcases Muhammad Ashar Khan from the Class of 2022. His paper, “Muniqdh min al dalal and the question of Prophecy – A Comparative Analysis of the position of Muslim Philosophers and Al-Ghazali” is set to be published in Afkar – Undergraduate Journal of Middle Eastern Studies.
His essay explores Al-Ghazali’s response to the philosophers' position on the nature of prophecy in the Munqidh min al dalal (Deliverance from Error). The article also underlines the position of Al-Farabi and Avicenna to present a case for the philosophers and explores the implications of Al-Ghazali’s criticism of their views.
The paper was a part of the course, Medieval Islamic Philosophy, offered and guided by Kainat Jalaluddin, lecturer in the Comparative Humanities program.
