Professor Abou El Fadl Interviewed on Radio WBUR on Understanding Sharia Law

August 15, 2016 -- Professor Khaled Abou El Fadl was interviewed on radio WBUR for a program entitled, “Crash Course in Sharia Law.”  A religious legal system governing members of the Islamic faith, Sharia Law has become “so scary to many Americans that lawmakers in some states have tried to pass laws banning it,” according to WBUR.    

“At the very basic level, Sharia means the ‘law of goodness,” said Professor Abou El Fadl. “So it’s very much akin to the basic concept of moral law, or natural law.”
