Open Debate Post: Reform of Islam
Reform of Islam, is it possible, how could it be done?
What would need to change in Islam to reduce suspicion and fear of it, and make life better for Muslims living under it?
Would the concept of Mohammed as the Perfect Man need to be amended possibly by reference to the political make up of ancient Arabia?
Could there be a new abrogation of the Qu’ran so that the verses of violence are annulled or seen as a historical curiosity?
Other religions have reformed or come to an accommodation with later teachings both sacred and secular, is it not time for Islam to do this?
I’ve banged on here about Islamic reform in the past but I’d like to hear YOUR suggestions as to what needs to change in Islam to bring it into the modern world.
