Canada: Friday Night Reflections – 26 February 2021 (Farsi)

To commemorate the occasion of Yawm-e-Ali, host Reena Jessa sits down with Dr. Hussein Rashid, professor at Columbia University to reflect on the life and example of Hazrat Ali. As Caliph and Imam, Hazrat Ali exemplified a notion of justice that became a model of Muslim leadership, centered on the ethics of Islam. He believed a person’s ability to act justly was intimately connected to their relationship to God and orientation towards the divine spirit.
