Tariq Ramadan (Contributor Webpage)

Oxford University Press

This chapter discusses the need to address issues such as education, civil societies, and the management of the different religious and political powers in the reform of Islamic thought. It argues that people in the Islamic world continue speaking about the dynamics of power distribution, political power, scholarly authority, and relations to people, as if nothing had truly changed. They would like to reform societies by relying on classical, visible powers, without noticing the extent to which this approach is not only outdated but also dangerous.

Keywords:   Islamic thought, Islamic law, civil societies, political power
