Episode 63. Dreams. What do our dreams mean? Is there a hidden depth to the visions that we see while we slumber or are they simply just the ramblings of our unconscious mind? For some people, their dreams have played a life changing or faith altering role. How can we explain the depth of conviction that we feel on seeing certain dreams? Throughout time, holy and spiritual people have claimed to have seen prophetic or true dreams, such as the dreams of Prophet Joseph (on whom be peace). Are dreams in fact a way for God to communicate with man? If so, then how do we decipher them in the way that God intends us to? Where do we look for truth and guidance when interpreting our dreams? Does Faith have the answers?

Episode 45. Islam and Slavery. Many years before the abolition of the slave trade in 1807, the Holy Prophet of Islam (peace and blessings be on him) taught his followers to free slaves and to give them their due rights. He also taught that all people, no matter what race, are equal and to be treated as such. This programme looks at the Islamic teachings on slavery, a topic that is sadly not yet confined to history books. We will explore slavery in the past and modern day slavery as well as the impact that it has on our society.

Episode 51. Evolution II. The theory of Evolution as put forth by Charles Darwin is universally accepted as a truism, it is the process that governed and shaped life. Yet it still proves to be a deeply divisive theory as soon as God and religion are evoked for one may be a believer in the theory of Evolution or a believer in God as the Creator. Can one not be both? The Holy Quran makes a wide range of observations covering the entire span of the creative process, pertaining to both the evolution of life and the preparatory stages preceding it. The modern theory of punctuated equilibrium might just be proof of a guided evolution that one has been looking for.
