    The Usuli Institute

    Runtime: 2:15:28

    A Beautiful Engagement Between Artist and Scholar. As part of The Usuli Institute Conversation Series, we are honored to host Ramy Youssef in conversation with Dr. Khaled Abou El Fadl and Grace Song about the challenges and opportunities for artistic expression in advancing faith, understanding, and the human side of being Muslim. Ramy Youssef is best known for making TV's first Muslim American sitcom, Hulu's millennial comedy series entitled, "Ramy." He also recently released his HBO Original stand-up comedy special entitled, "Feelings." Both shows jump headlong into uncharted on-screen territory when it comes to the challenges confronting Muslim millennials attempting to navigate the grey areas of faith and religion, society and culture, expectation and acceptance, and ultimately, humanity in all of its forms. An honest, raw and fascinating discussion. Hosted at the Usuli Institute, 14 September 2019. For more on The Usuli Institute, visit www.usuli.org.

20 yrs ago, I read Abou El Fadl’s essays and books and was very influenced by his writings! Great to see him!

I get the point of the show, that it shows the consequences of the haram lifestyle and by extention highlighting the importance of a halal lifestyle. But I think the subversive nature and explicitness of the scenes may encourage audiences, especially youth to take part in those haram acts. So in the long run I don't think the end justify the means.

I understand but the Quran itself can lead or mislead you based on your intentions and heart. If you are of sound heart and mind - why would seeing “haram acts” on a show suddenly trigger such a dramatic transformation in your spirit?

God, I loved this conversation. By far the most interesting, revealing, and informative interview I've seen Ramy do about his show.

Fantastic conversation. The series really touch me - it was realistic and so insightful. In particular, i loved the way he portrayed his parents and sister. I look forward to season 2 and other shows that follow in Ramy's footsteps.

I like the show because it is very individualistic that it is from Ramy’s perspective and understanding. But it doesn’t mean that I agree with his perspective. With that said, I do like that individualistic perspective that he is not trying to represent a larger Muslim population. I also like how open he is in the conversation.

Two platforms; one (Ramy) that most of us live and the other (Sheikh) that we wish to live. Would love to see more discussions.
