Spiritual Personality – Zohair Abdul-Rahman | 2018 Yaqeen/MAS Academic Conference

Spiritual personality refers to a person’s natural disposition that influences what aspects of Islamic practice, belief, and virtues naturally appeal to them. With a better awareness of this diversity, we hope that the Muslim community begins to create space for people of diverse interests, talents, and strengths to thrive and grow. In this session, Zohair Abdul-Rahman explores the concept of personality in the Qur’an and Islamic tradition as well as presents the four archetypal spiritual personality types.

This session took place at the Yaqeen/MAS Academic Conference at the 2018 MAS-ICNA Convention in Chicago, IL.
