Thank you for sharing, brother. Najam Haider is a bright academic who brings unique ideas in this video; he humanizes the lives of the early Muslim communities.

The theory that 'rituals (often) trump theology' is believable. I can see this anecdotally, I know of non-Hazara Afghan Shias who respect Abu Bakr and Umar [r], but are considered as Twelver Shiites since they pray sadl.
