Who is the Hawk of Quraysh? Deliberating Leadership from a Muslim perspective
Committee Room 1 |
UCL Institute of Education
20 Bedford Way | London | WC1H 0AL | United Kingdom
Dr Ayman K. Agbaria, University of Haifa and CREME Visiting Research Fellow
In this seminar Dr Agbaria will present insights from various courses and reading groups focusing on educational thought through a close reading of Islamic classical texts. These settings were designed to deepen participants' knowledge of seminal texts in Islamic educational thought and provide the opportunity to explore new meanings of these texts, and discuss their contemporary relevance.
Specifically, the seminar will focus on the theme of leadership drawing on four texts: Ibn al-Athir’s The Tale of Abu Ja’far al Mansur, Al-Farabi’s The Opinions of the Inhabitants of the Virtuous City, Al- Ghazali’s al-Munqidh min al-dalal; and Ibn Tufail’s Hayy Ibn Yaqzan. Drawing on these texts and the discussions with participants in settings noted above, Dr Agbaria will reflect on three questions: Are leaders natural-born or self-made? Are they idealists or pragmatists? Are they reformers or missionaries? The seminar conclude with thoughts on developing Muslim intellectual leadership.
