Scholar of the House is dedicated to providing a path to peace through education and understanding by advancing the school of thought of Dr. Khaled Abou El Fadl, the world's leading expert at the intersection of Islamic and Western law.
We seek to make Dr. Abou El Fadl's scholarship widely available to provide today's change agents with the knowledge and tools necessary to address ignorance, hate and anti-Islamic rhetoric.
Given the increasing and venomous spread of Islamophobia, we believe more than ever that Dr. Abou El Fadl's orthodox, humanistically moral-, beauty- and reason-based approach to Islam and Islamic law presents the opportunity for all humankind to live together in peace and dignity.
We believe that the path to peace is all about living and seeking beauty as a moral imperative in Islam, as expounded in Dr. Abou El Fadl's book, "The Search for Beauty in Islam". We invite all to actively join in our cause. One person can make a big difference (please see our section on How You Can Help).
