A Reopening of the Muslim Mind

Abdul Hafeez

When unfounded dogmas get formulated as religious doctrines, they acquire the status of creed and become part of the official interpretation of faith.

Minds become closed when dogma, tradition, rituals, superstitions and speculations assume the status of faith, rationalisation gets preference over reasoning, and principles for the interpretation of the Qur'an given by the Qur'an itself are disregarded.

It is necessary that the Muslims reopen their minds and reconstruct Islamic theology and exegesis based on the Qur'anic principles.

Critically examining some of the basic tenets of Ash'arite Islamic theology, the study argues that they conflict with the ontology, cosmology and epistemology as deriveable from the Qur'an. This book exibit, its author's attempt to reconstruct the basic tenets of Islamic theology in a Qur'anic perspective.
