The Psychology of Islam, Part 3: Theology of the Fatherless

Support our videos on Patreon:

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 Part 2, we examined the historical evidence to see if our first expectation was confirmed, and we found that it was completely confirmed. Now, in Part 3, we test our prediction that Muhammad’s childhood experiences would affect his view of father-figures and his view of God.
