Dr Nayed Interviewed on IKIM FM Radio in Malaysia on Traditional Islam

“Our mistake in Libya is that we have neglected traditional Islamic studies for 42 years, while we used to follow Ash’ari in terms of aqidah, Maliki in terms of jurisprudence and Junayd al-Baghdadi in terms of Sufism. As a result, radical outside elements seep in and damage the thinking of our generation so that many are influenced by extreme thinking coupled with the economic turmoil that has hit. I am just a guest here, but if I can advise you my brother, strengthen your Shafie school, Ashaari and Ghazali Sufism which has been established for hundreds of years.” — H.E. Professor Dr. Aref Ali Nayed, Libyan Ambassador to the UAE, IKIM Fm, 25 March 2016.
