Dr. Younus Mirza joins the podcast as we share Hajj stories, how to seek the blessings of Dhul Hijjah and Eid-ul-Adha, and discuss the differences between Biblical and Qur'anic narratives about the Prophets. Was the son of sacrifice Ishaq or Ismail? Does it matter? We reflect on the story of sacrifice in Surah As-Saffat and its lessons for us today.

Dr. Younus Y. Mirza is a Visiting Researcher at Georgetown University. He is a co-author of the book "The Bible and the Qur’an: Biblical Figures in the Islamic Tradition".
