The Spaces In-Between: Dihliz (pronounced deh-leez in Persian and Urdu and dih-leez in Arabic) is the single word that describes the space between the house proper and the street. This in-between space also describes my own existential position between several antinomies. Welcome to ebrahimmoosa.com, where I share about Islamic law, Muslim ethics and other related topics.
As scholar, writer and public intellectual my priority is to provoke critical thinking and questioning in matters of religion, politics, philosophy and society. While tradition is important, I think of myself as a critical traditionalist. My work is animated by our quest to find meaning in our planetary existence, our dilemmas in our encounter with science and technology yet I am deeply indebted to the ancient wisdom of religion, philosophy, the humanities and the insights of the social sciences.
