The Book of Eli

The Book of Eli, starring Denzel Washington, Mila Kunis and Gary Oldman, is a powerful movie on the power of faith for both good and evil.

Set in a post-apocolyptic world, the Book of Eli depicts not only the abuse of religion and sacred scripture, but also describes at the same time the bleakness of a world without faith.

In this episode of Soul of Islam Radio, Ahmad and Ihsan discuss many aspects of the movie including the significance of the role of the West in spiritual development, and the importance of preserving the spirit of religion while concurrently preserving its forms.

You will also learn how to distinguish inspiration through the heart and soul from the thoughts of the mind, and how the heart, not the mind, is the true receptacle of knowledge, wisdom and understanding.

Also discussed are the definition of sainthood and saints in Islam, the importance of selfless and sincere leadership, and the secret of the Way of the Spiritual Warrior.

    Salamu alaikum,

    Thanks for continuing to produce these quality spiritually-uplifting podcasts. May Allah continues to bless it! This episode should have been sponsored by Warner Bros or something because it made me went out and rented it again after listening to this and indeed, the movie does provide for some entertaining spiritual lessons and lots of parallels to Islam. Really enjoyed it, both the podcast and movie. Can’t wait to hear the next episode!
