20:30 Lecture by Dr. Ali Reza Bhojani: Towards Godliness - Islam as a means not an end

This series of lectures will revolve around a central theme of Islam and its teachings being purely a means - where the only absolute is Allah, and the only real end is God and Godliness. Lectures will pick up on how the Sharia, our identity the Umma, diversity and difference should all be seen in light of this central principle, having value only in so far as they move us towards God and Godliness.

Dr Ali-Reza is a post-doctoral research and teaching fellow at the Al-Mahdi Institute. He holds a PhD from Durham University in Islamic Legal theory. His doctoral work forms the basis of his first book, to be published by Routledge in 2015, titled Moral Rationalism and Sharia, Independent rationality in modern Shii usul al-fiqh. His PhD research was supported by a scholarship from the Centre for the Advanced Study of the Arab World through which he also read for an MA in Research Methods at Durham. Prior to his time in Durham, Ali-Reza graduated from the Al-Mahdi Institutes Four Year Hawza Programme in Arabic and Islamic studies and has since continued his traditional Islamic studies through regular sabbaticals to the seminaries of Qum and Masshad as well as under senior faculty at the Al-Mahdi Institute. Ali-reza is also a fully qualified and practicing Optometrist.

Ali-Rezas current research interests center around developing the implications and possibility of an Adliyya moral reading of Sharia in a wide range of applied areas of contemporary concern. His current teaching ranges across usul-al-fiqh, ilm al-kalam and the Methodological Issues in the Study of Islam. He serves as a member of the Al-Mahdi Institutes Education and Research Board and is a council member for the British Association of Islamic Studies (BRAIS). Ali-Reza is also actively involved in a range of outreach work across Muslim, intra-faith, and inter-faith contexts.
