Episode 21: Science, the Universe, and Supernatural Beings in the Qur’an

Join our hosts and guest Dr. Javad Hashmi to explore the cosmology of the Qur’an and its relevance today. Are the Qur’anic descriptions of creation, including the afterlife and the supernatural, compatible with modern science? How should these verses be understood by modern believers?

About the Podcast:

Minding Scripture is a podcast where divine word and human reason meet. We explore questions that believers and skeptics alike ask about the Bible and the Qur’an. In their conversations on scripture and its interpretations, Francesca Murphy, Gabriel Reynolds, Mun’im Sirry, Tzvi Novick, and guest speakers reflect the deep intellectual diversity of Judaism, Christianity, and Islam. In a world marked by irrational discourse about religion, this podcast seeks to demonstrate that faith sharpens and quickens the ability to reason in friendship.
