The Psychology of Islam, Part 2: Muhammad's Rebellion
In Part 1 of this series, we learned that the Defective Father Hypothesis (DFH) leads to certain expectations, given Muhammad's childhood experiences. In brief, based on DFH, we would expect Muhammad to rebel against authority and tradition; we would expect him to have a problem with father figures, and especially with viewing God as a heavenly father; and we would expect him to have some difficulty forming normal relationships with other people. In this video, we examine the historical evidence to see if our first expectation is confirmed. Along the way, we help Sheikh Yasir Qadhi understand Allah better.
