Throughout history, freethinkers have outraged the religious with their wacky ideas about the virtues of free speech, reason, and, of course, eating babies. Now, God is dying—and it's time to dispose of his remains. From the pits of Hell, Satan sends two puppets of the imperialist West and the Zionist Jews against God, Islam, and tiny kittens to bring you their propaganda and conspire for a new world order. This is Secular Jihadists for a Muslim Enlightenment—with Ali Rizvi and Armin Navabi.

Tom Holland is a historian and author of the bestselling book, In the Shadow of the Sword, which charts the origins and early history of Islam based on recent scholarship. His documentary, Islam: The Untold Story, was both eye-opening and controversial, making Holland the target of numerous death threats. Another documentary, ISIS: The Origins of Violence, was acclaimed for exploring daring questions about the roots of ISIS's ideology of violence in Islamic scriptures. We talk about the latest on the historical records that give us clues to how Islam arose, in a riveting and eye-opening conversation. Check it out.

Rank #2: EP69: Muhammad: The Man. The Message. The Mystery.

Podcast cover
Read more

There are some things we know about Muhammad—but what's more interesting is what we don't know. The earliest surviving biography of Muhammad, by ibn Hisham, is from over 200 years after his death. That biography is based on an earlier biography by Ibn Ishaq which did not survive to the present day except in fragments, but itself was written over 100 years after Muhammad's death. Almost everything we know about Muhammad aside from the scant details in the Quran, almost every story we hear, is from these early biographies. The first time Muhammad's name ever appeared on any official state document was on a coin, over 50 years after he died. There is no mention of him in any other state documents, including those of the Umayyad caliphate. All six of the "authentic" hadith compilations began a full 200 years after his death, based on oral traditions passed from generation to generation. The only reliable indicator from his lifetime is the Quran, which mentions him only four times by name, but is also remarkably cryptic about this time in history. Although Muhammad almost certainly existed, the details of his biography are vague. We dug into all of this and more in our continued conversation with Abdullah Gondal. Don't miss this.

Umar and Tahir Nasser are the founders of Rational Religion, a UK-based forum where they take on the big questions in religion, atheism, science, and society. The brothers are Ahmadi Muslim physicians who are deeply familiar with the atheist arguments against religion and Islam and openly engage with the opposing side to further dialogue. They joined us to talk about whether science has made religion obsolete, whether the Qur'an is divinely revealed, the Big Bang, the nature of time, and lots more. This was a truly enjoyable discussion with believing Muslims we disagree with, and it will leave both Muslims and atheists with a lot to think about. Check it out.

After attacks on the US embassy in Baghdad by an Iranian-backed Iraqi militia group, American airstrikes killed Qasem Soleimani, a major general in the Iranian Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC). Iranians responded by shooting rockets into US bases in Iraq with no casualties. The US said it does not want a war, but all options are on the table. Is this the end of hostilities? Well, there’s a lot more that you may not have heard in the mainstream media. Ali and Armin (who grew up in Tehran) take a closer look at what happened and what might happen next in detail. Check it out.

Rank #8: EP65: The Quran: Questioning Infallibility, Shattering Taboos

Podcast cover
Read more

A key element of the Enlightenment was the emergence of Biblical criticism as an academic discipline. This practice, which arose out of the German Enlightenment in the 1700s, was centered around applying a non-sectarian, reason-based approach to studying scripture in order to avoid dogma and bias. Biblical criticism was instrumental in the neutering of pre-Enlightenment Christianity, challenging and normalizing the notion of Biblical inerrancy and helping shatter taboos like blasphemy. In Islam, the Quran is still seen by the vast majority of Muslims as the inerrant, literal word of Allah, the Creator of the Universe—and criticizing it or even questioning it carries dire penalties across the Muslim world. Fortunately, a new generation of secular Quranic skeptics from the Muslim world, like Abdullah Gondal, are challenging the Quran—its history, its authenticity, its claims of preservation, and its claims of truth and divinity. Join us as we dive into everything you wanted to know about the Quran with this brilliant young talent—you'll learn a lot.
