Video title: What is Jahiliyah – Speaker: Nouman Ali Khan/ The Cost of Ignorance – Amazed by the Quran w/ Nouman Ali Khan
The concept of “jahiliyyah” (ignorance) in the Quran is attributed to four features in progression, which when combined eventually lead a society to ruin:
1. Thann al jahiliyya (assuming the worst of Allah or other people);
2. Tabbarruj al jahiliyyah (violating the codes of decency by beautifying oneself inappropriately);
3. Himyat al jahiliyyah (making affiliations rooted in an ignorant sense of superiority, tribalism or nationalism); and finally
4. Hukm al jahiliyyah, ruling the entire society with ignorance.
