These are very important questions for us and Allah has showed us the answers to these in the Qur'an itself through various stories. The story that stands out the most in this regard is the story of Musa (AS). There is a great deal of his life mentioned before he becomes a prophet so that we can understand how Musa (AS) used reason without revelation. Then he becomes a prophet and receives revelation but does not abandon reason. The way he uses reason now is even more intriguing. One example of this is his encounter with the "mysterious" Khidr. There are many more examples given in the Qur'an
The Story Musa (AS) in The Qur'an Seminar on Saturday (tomorrow) looks at this phenomena in detail. This is your golden opportunity to explore the balance between reason and revelation in the seminar by one of the leading scholars and thinkers of the west today Shaykh Dr Mohammed Akram Nadwi. Of course this is only one of many aspects of the story of Musa (AS) discussed in the seminar, for other aspects please read the previous posts below. This is the last chance to register online.
