With his answers, you can simply see that what he says, he has thought over for a long time.What attracts you towards him is the quintessence of long meditation. In our dialogue with him we concentrated on a number of topics from “religious discourse” and “dialogue with the other,” to politics, in addition to other topics.Our dear guest explained his ideas with profoundness and with a great deal of serenity which he involuntarily transmitted to us. As a result, many times the desire to ask him a question would die out to be replaced by a yearning to just listen. For this reason, the reader will find that this dialogue seemed more like an intellectual discussion than a normal interview. “We should introduce a new way of confronting the problem. We should ask: What is my responsibility towards the problem? ” ---Ali Al-Jifri.*Includes footnotes.
