a wide collection of lectures/courses/seminars given by Sh.Atabek on theology
Theology is one of the fundamentals of all religions. Great theologians of the past such as Imam Muhammad al-Baqir (died 743 AD), Abu Hanifa (died 767 AD), Abu Mansur al-Maturidi (died 944 AD), Imam Ghazali (died 1111 AD), Imam Fakhruddin Razi (died 1210 AD) and many other giants of the past established the foundations of the theology and applied it on the hot topics of their age in order to solve the confusion of the people. Unfortunately, it was abused by politicians and unqualified scholars of the past to create boundaries, and to split the people into groups and sects.
Theology is not established to create a mess and divisions between people. Rather, it is created to give an answer, based on divine sources, to the questions which concern the humanity. The questions such as: Who am I?, What am I doing here?, What is the purpose of my life?, Is there a creator?, What does he want from me?, Why do I have to suffer?, Why do my parents had to suffer?, Where is the justice? etc... This is achieved by:
1. Finding the foundations of the Theology which were established by the giants of this field, and restoring them and establishing them on the divine sources.
2. Using these foundations to respond to the contemporary questions of Humanity, and solving the confusions caused by abusing Theological principles by non-qualified scholars of the past and present.
3. Stopping the abuse of the Theology by non-qualified scholars who are using it for wrong reasons such as; gaining a power or fame, dividing the society and spreading a hatred.
