Shaykh Hamza Yusuf on the Legacy of al-Andalus

Simply an excellent lecture by Hamza Yusuf. Although he makes some minor factual errors and I may take issue with his framing, it’s definitely worth a listen. One of his main contributions is that he recognizes the dangers posed by both the “Reconquista” champions in modern Spain, who seek to completely deny the legitimacy of the 900-year long (!!)

This talk shows his understanding of the broader processes and lessons from this period of Islamic history and his amazing ability to convey this information in a meaningful way
