    With all due respect to the Sheikhs on this website and in the interview;
    I believe that an audio post of this video would be more appropriate. In several places this video shows the awra of the female interviewer (which even ladies are not permitted to see) and also (as obvious) she is not dressed appropriately for our male viewers. With all love to the interviewer I don’t believe a video of this nature is appropriate for the front page of where we seek our knowledge. Not to mention YouTube then give us the opportunity to see plenty of other questionable videos once we are done watching that one (so by putting the live YouTube link we are know given the opportunity to stream what the YouTube company sees fit for our eyes).

    Also the video adds very little to the comprehension of what Sheikh Hamza Yusuf and Imam Zaid Shakir are saying and so an audio would inshaAllah be more than sufficient.
    I really hope the Seekers Guidance team takes to heart that this video is inappropriate, not only for my family, but for many of us Muslims in general. Sheikh Hamza Yusuf can be contacted on the Zaytuna Institute website and maybe he could make available the audio.
    JazakAllahu Khair
