Back on the show for a third time is Umair Haseeb as we discuss the concept of saints and what it means to be a saintly figure.  We focus specifically on the Islamic concept of sainthood or "wilayah" which translates to "friendship with God".  

Umair is a graduate of the Qarawayyin in Fez, Morocco where he studied theology, Islamic law and spirituality.  He continues to study Islam formally in Chicago while also managing a home furnishing business, Atiq Woodworks.
