WATCH: Prof. Yousef Casewit on the
Impact of the Ghazali Project on his Children
Professor Yousef Casewit speaking about the importance of the Fons Vitae Ghazali Children’s Project and Ghazali’s Ihya’ as a synthesis of Islamic thought.
“Ghazali’s Ihya’ is a one-stop shop for classical Islamic thought and making it accessible to our children is really a massive gift…Thanks to Ghazali, I can communicate with my children in a real way. It’s the ‘tongue of Fitrah’, or the innate disposition of the human being, that Ghazali is able to articulate.”
Assistant Professor of Qur’anic Studies at University of Chicago, Casewit’s interests include the intellectual history of North Africa and al-Andalus, Muslim perceptions of the Bible, and medieval commentaries on the ninety nine divine names. An American born in Egypt and raised in Morocco, he is fluent in Arabic, French and Spanish, and has studied with Muslim scholars in Morocco, Syria, and Mauritania.
