Subject: Talks by Dr. Timothy Winter (Abdel Hakim Murad)
Date Posted: 30 March 2016 at 3:28am
Timothy John Winter (born in 1960), also known as Shaykh Abdal Hakim Murad, is a British Muslim shaykh, researcher, writer and academic.

He is the Dean of the Cambridge Muslim College, Director of Studies (Theology and Religious Studies) at Wolfson College and the Shaykh Zayed Lecturer in Islamic Studies at Cambridge University.

He has consistently been included in the "500 Most Influential Muslims" list published annually by the Royal Islamic Strategic Studies Centre and was ranked in 2012 as the 50th most influential.

This is a first interview with him on the Life of Imam Al-Ghazali

Dr. Timothy Winter: The life and works of Al-Ghazali

http://vimeo.com/135592951 - https://vimeo.com/135592951

Al-Ghazâlî (c.1056–1111) was one of the most prominent and influential philosophers, theologians, jurists, and mystics of Sunni Islam.

He was active at a time when Sunni theology had just passed through its consolidation and entered a period of intense challenges from Shiite Ismâ’îlite theology and the Arabic tradition of Aristotelian philosophy (falsafa).

Al-Ghazâlî understood the importance of falsafa and developed a complex response that rejected and condemned some of its teachings, while it also allowed him to accept and apply others.

Al-Ghazâlî's critique of twenty positions of falsafa in his Incoherence of the Philosophers (Tahâfut al-falâsifa) is a significant landmark in the history of philosophy as it advances the nominalist critique of Aristotelian science developed later in 14th century Europe.

The Role of Faith in Times of Turmoil

Sheikh Murad gave this talk in London at the Central mosque five years ago.

In his address during the Imam's Conference, Sheikh Abdal Hakim Murad makes a strong case of what the role of Imam's is, following the difficult years that have followed 9/11.

Here he talks about the need for scholars to be independent of external forces and to act in an impartial and sincere manner without marginalising the young and vulnerable.

He also highlights the crises of legitimacy amongst the Ulema being the biggest challenge facing scholars.

His address highlights the need for scholars to try and overcome the state of failure by doing more to build communities through the internal discourse of religion.

The Kilafah of Umar - (may Allah be pleased with him): Days of Glory

In the second of 4 talks on the four rightly-guided caliphs, Sheikh Abdel Hakeem deals in this episode with the second Caliph, Umar ibn Al-Khattab, may Allah be pleased with him.


Umar ibn al-Khattab, known as al-Faruq, 'the Discerner', was the second of the four Rightly-Guided Caliphs. One of the greatest rulers in world history, he laid down the institutions of a solid Muslim government. Under his farsighted leadership, armies moved in every direction to liberate neighbouring lands.

Umar, may Allah be pleased with him, was passionate in his devotion to the Din of Islam and establishing Allah's laws among His servants.

He was also a man of prayer and fasting, who paid little attention to the temporary pleasures of the world. He said: 'No part of Allah's wealth is allowed to Umar, save two garments: one for the winter, and the other for summer, and what I need to take me to Umra and the Hajj. My provisions for my family are those of an ordinary man of Quraysh, neither the wealthiest nor the poorest. After that, I am just a man from among the Muslims.'

The Kilafah of Uthman - (may Allah be pleased with him): The Wisdom and the Agony 

In the third of 4 talks on the four rightly-guided caliphs, Sheikh Abdel Hakeem deals in this episode with the third Caliph, Utham ibn Affan, may Allah be pleased with him.

Uthman ibn Affan was the third Khalifa of Islam. He was known as the 'Man of the Two Lights', because he was the only man in history known to have married two daughters of a Prophet.

Uthman was famed for his good looks and immense generosity, and also for his spiritual closeness to the Holy Prophet of Islam, who included him among the ten who were assured of Paradise. He commanded the armies of Islam during an age of miraculous conquest and victory in East and West.

But he remained famously humble, and his sermons brought people to tears. He said: 'I am astounded at four people: he who knows the world to be temporary, and still chases after it; he who is certain of death and yet makes no plans for it; he who believes in hell, and yet commits sins; and he who believes in Allah, and yet seeks the help of others.'

The Kilafah of Ali - (may Allah be pleased with him) 

In the fourth of 4 talks on the four rightly-guided caliphs, Sheikh Abdel Hakeem deals in this episode with the fourth Caliph, Ali ibn Abi Talib, may Allah be pleased with him.

Ali ibn Abi Talib was the fourth Khalifa of Islam. He had the distinction of being both the son-in-law and the cousin of the Holy Prophet, upon him be peace. He is, with Fatima, the ancestor of the Ahl al-Bayt, the People of the Prophetic House.

He was characterised by martial skill, by inward depth, and by an immense erudition in religious knowledge. Of him, Imam Ahmad ibn Hanbal said: 'Khilafa was not an ornament for him, he was an ornament for khilafa.'

Imam Malik: Sage of the City of Light

Four great legal theorists dominate the history of Islamic Sacred Law. In this lecture, we meet Imam Malik ibn Anas (d.795), celebrated as the 'Imam of the City of Emigration' (Imam Dar al-Hijra).

Revered for his great love of the Sunna of the Chosen One (a.s.), Imam Malik dedicated his life to preserving the great treasure of Prophetic wisdom for future generations. As the honoured scholar of the City of Light, he knew that the Sunna was to be learned not only from the Hadith, but from the lived practice of the great people of Madina. His fiqh is therefore rooted in community practice, which gives it great flexibility and humanity.

Close to many of the Second Generation (the Tabi'un), he narrated the famous 'Golden Chain': his own teacher Nafi had learned hadiths from Ibn Umar, who reported directly from the Holy Prophet himself.

A sage who always made wudu before quoting a hadith, the Imam once remarked: 'Allah places the gift of knowledge wherever He will. It does not consist in narrating a large amount.'

Imam Abu Hanifa: Baghdad's Auspicious Fortune

Imam Abu Hanifa an-Nu'man ibn Thabit (d. 767), the master-scholar of Iraq, was one of the four great Mujtahid Imams, after whom were named the four Madhhabs to which Sunni Muslims belong. A pupil of Imam Malik, he was celebrated for his intelligence, and his school is famous for its high opinion of the Divine gift of reason.

In this the Imam was a faithful follower of the first generation of Muslims. According to many historians, he had the honour to meet several of the Companions of the Holy Prophet. His emphasis on rational approaches in law and theology, which went beyond even the method of Imam al-Shafi'i, did much to trigger systematic jurisprudence and theology in the Islamic world. Partly for this reason, a majority of Muslims in the world today are followers of his school.

Imam al-Shafi'i: The Worshipping Saint

Imam Muhammad ibn Idris al-Shafi'i was perhaps the greatest legal theorist of human history. A pupil of Imam Malik, he strove constantly to root Muslim practice in the blessed ways of the Chosen One, upon him be peace. Thus he was honoured with the title 'Nasir al-Sunna', the Supporter of the Sunna.

This emphasis on transmission was matched by his underlining the principle of aql, intellect, in solving problems of doctrine and law.

A deeply-cultured human being, he was noted for his skill in archery and poetry, as well for his mastery of Sacred Law

Imam Ahmad ibn Hanbal: Victory Over Tribulations

Imam Ahmad ibn Hanbal (d.855) was the fourth and last of the founders of the four Sunni Schools of Fiqh.

Famous mainly as a narrator and compiler of Hadith, he was also widely respected for his knowledge of law, in which he preferred to avoid verdicts in which human reason was in danger of straying from the plain sense of the Qur'an and the Sunna.

The hero of the Sunni persecution at the hands of the heretic caliph al-Ma'mun, he won the affection and respect of followers of all the rightly-guided schools of Islam.

Upholding the Prophetic Character in a Divided World

A talk by Sheikh Abdal Hakim at the University of Bradford

The Prophetic Character should teach us how to rise above individualistic concerns and become global communities of unbound love, mercy and profound tolerance.

It is apparent from the plight in many parts of the world today, that there is an absence to the adherence of these lofty Prophetic traits, which has led to much religious and ideological fanaticism.

The rise of atheism and violent extremism have both simultaneously damaged the faith of people and led to disillusionment. Prophet Muhammad’s (peace be upon him) character and qualities are universal in nature from which humanity should take heed from.

Shaykh Abdal Hakim Murad eloquently advises the necessity to connect to the timeless message of the Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) and discusses how his character is the remedy to healing our hearts in the spiritual chaos of the modern age.

Breaking The Two Desires - Part 1

Breaking the two desires and the rememberance of death by Sh. Abdal Hakim Murad

Abdal Hakim Murad graduated from Cambridge University with a double-first in Arabic in 1983. He then lived in Cairo for three years, studying Islam under traditional teachers at Al-Azhar, one of the oldest universities in the world.

He went on to reside for three years in Jeddah, where he administered a commercial translation office and maintained close contact with prominent ulama from Yemen.

In 1989, Shaykh Abdal Hakim returned to England and spent two years at the University of London learning Turkish and Farsi. Since 1992 he has been a doctoral student at Oxford University, specializing in the religious life of the early Ottoman Empire.

He is currently Secretary of the Muslim Academic Trust (London) and Director of the Sunna Project at the Centre of Middle Eastern Studies at Cambridge University, which issues the first-ever scholarly Arabic editions of the major Hadith collections.

Shaykh Abdal Hakim is the translator of a number of works, including two volumes from Imam al-Ghazali's Ihya Ulum al-Din. He gives durus and halaqas from time to time and taught the works of Imam al-Ghazali at the Winter 1995 Deen Intensive Program in New Haven, CT.

He appears frequently on BBC Radio and writes occasionally for a number of publications, including The Independent; Q-News International, Britain's premier Muslim Magazine; and Seasons, the semiacademic journal of Zaytuna Institute.

Is Orthodox Islam Possible without Sufism?

An Excellent Talk by Sheikh Murad - Very Deep & Informative

Is orthodox Islam possible without Sufism?

Sufi World presents an exclusive lecture with Shaykh Abdal Hakim Murad (Dr. Timothy Winter) who delivers a lecture of great importance at the VU University in Amsterdam, The Netherlands.

After breaking down the main question, Shaykh explains us what it actually means to be a Sunni Muslim and how Tasawwuf is at the heart of Islam. A powerful lecture and Q&A that cover the solution to most of today's issues.

We do not call Sunni Islam just Sunni Islam but Ahl al-Sunnah wa’l-Jamaa’ah, the people of the Sunnah, because the ultimate point of authority is the Holy Prophet (ﷺ). We are not going to accept anybody's interference with that. Also the consensus of the scholars.

Thousands upon thousands purified souls and great scholarly minds discussing what the Hadith means and telling the Ummah what is the most likely interpretation. Not just an individual’s view of what the meaning might be.

Upholding the Prophetic Character in a Divided World

The Prophetic Character should teach us how to rise above individualistic concerns and become global communities of unbound love, mercy and profound tolerance.

It is apparent from the plight in many parts of the world today, that there is an absence to the adherence of these lofty Prophetic traits, which has led to much religious and ideological fanaticism.

The rise of atheism and violent extremism have both simultaneously damaged the faith of people and led to disillusionment. Prophet Muhammad’s (peace be upon him) character and qualities are universal in nature from which humanity should take heed from.

Shaykh Abdal Hakim Murad eloquently advises the necessity to connect to the timeless message of the Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) and discusses how his character is the remedy to healing our hearts in the spiritual chaos of the modern age.

What Is a Western-Muslim Identity?

What does it mean to be authentically Muslim, but deeply rooted in Western culture?

People often assume that Islam is something foreign - and that to be Muslim, you have to adopt another culture – Middle Eastern, South Asian, or sometimes, we hear the call of fully integrating into the western culture to prove our Candian-ess.

Do Muslims in the West need to establish their own identity and distinguish themselves from their fellow Muslims in the East?

What should Western Islam look like?

Dr. Abdal Hakim Murad - born Timothy Winter - is Dean of the Cambridge Muslim College, and Lecturer in Islamic Studies at Cambridge University's Faculty of Divinity.

He told us about the aims of the Cambridge Muslim College, and to talk about what "Indigenous British Muslimness" might look like. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BMzbFmgn6UY -

The Role of the Sunnah & Religion in the Modern World

Shaykh Abdal Hakim Murad discusses the importance of realising we all have a practical choice and not just a theoretical demand on how we conduct our lives.

We have a choice to either descend to the lower depths of our caprices or to rise to a higher level by ascending to reality itself.

The trodden path of the Prophets has been laid out before us and we should strive with urgency to commence the journey and reconnect to the lofty virtues of eternal felicity.

Find God at Work

Many of us who are working throughout Ramadan are likely to be worried about how to keep spirituality at the top of our priority list while coping with a demanding work environment.

Getting through the working hours can become a drag. We end up waiting to get home or to a mosque to really 'find God' again.

Shaykh Abdal Hakim Murad sees things a bit differently. God isn't only found in 'sacred places'. We make our lives sacred by the intentions we make and the actions we do. After all, the Prophet - peace and blessings be upon him -- invoked God's Mercy on those who were involved in business transactions too.

This excerpt is taken from the Shaykh's keynote address at the launch of the "Let's make this a Fairtrade Ramadan!" campaign

The People of Harmony

"Restrain thyself along with those who cry unto their Lord at morn and evening, seeking His Countenance; and let not thine eyes overlook them, desiring the pomp of the life of the world; and obey not him whose heart We have made heedless of Our remembrance, who followeth his own lust and whose case hath been abandoned. " (Qur'an, 18.28)
