A Need to Relook at Islam

Author Name: Moin Qazi | Format: Paperback | Genre : Religion & Spirituality | Other Details

In this book, the author, Moin Qazi, has explored the significant themes of Islam in both the classical and modern contexts. He has authored several books on Islam with a distinct and unique approach to the subject. Islam remains a staggeringly diverse and complicated religion in its geographical and political reach, making reforms difficult.

Every religious ideal has a historical time and context. The circumstances for its realization will not be sufficient to sustain any perpetual decree or pronouncement sustainably. The reform process is inevitable and is instrumental in bringing about a religious ideal and giving it dynamic momentum, inclusiveness, flexibility, etc. While the reform advocates change, we must remember that the underlying cultural nuances, particularly the last mile ones, ensure the dynamism that regulates the various balancing checks in preserving and safeguarding the existing values, norms, ideals, decrees, etc. and provide improvised means of implementing them simultaneously. It propagates gradual change in certain aspects of social, religious, ideological, etc. realms rather than in rapid, fundamental, or revolutionary ways.
