About this item

In 1940 Hamzu Shehata gave a lecture at the Makkah Charitable Aid Association which, over four hours and reputedly utilising 121 handwritten notes, covered a staggering amount of social and cultural observances and critique on many facets of contemporary life presented, in equal parts, within a scientific and philosophical framework to convince his audience that conventional views of virtue and vice were a deceptive simplification and social and religious reform was necessary.
A humble man at heart, Hamza was reluctant to publish the speech in his lifetime and it is thanks to Malik R. Dahlan’s magnificent translation into English presented here along with an insightful analysis of both the temporal and spatial context of its delivery that the world is able to fully appreciate a fascinating, and thought provoking, snapshot of Arabian history that would otherwise be lost.
