This chapter reflects on the notion of “reform” in Islam. It begins by discussing two concepts in Islamic sciences, drawn from scriptural sources, that directly refer to the ideas of “reform” and “renewal”, namely, “tajdîd” and “islâh”. It considers the role of the Quran in contemporary debate over “reform”. The notion of “ijtihâd” is also discussed.

Keywords:   Islamic thought, renewal, tajdîd, islâh, ijtihâd
