The Psychology of Islam, Part 2: Muhammad's Rebellion

In Part 1, we learned that the Defective Father Hypothesis 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, David Wood examines the historical evidence to see if our first expectation is confirmed. Along the way, we help Sheikh Yasir Qadhi understand Allah better.
