Astrophysicist, Scientist, Dr. Arif Babul in Conversation with Simerg

arif-babulEditor’s Note: In this enriching interview, Dr. Babul gives wonderful insights into his field of study, and does it in a fashion and a language that most of us will understand. As well, he talks about his upbringing and family, ventures into areas such as science and religion, presents his perspective about the message of Ismaili Imams about human existence, God and the relationship between intellect and faith, reviews the achievements of Muslim Scientists and particularly those who have inspired him the most (and why), and talks about his hopes and aspirations for the Ismaili community. He mentions his journeys around the world and shares his feelings of belonging to one brotherhood, which he experienced when he visited Dubai with his family for the Golden Jubilee of His Highness the Aga Khan.

Because of the length, the interview will be published in four parts.
