Radical Reform

Tariq Ramadan (Contributor Webpage)

Oxford University Press

This chapter continues the discussion on the notion of reform in Islam, began in the previous chapter, by addressing the question: what reform do we mean? It argues that the reform intended questions the established geography of the fundamentals of Islamic usûl al-fiqh as well as the limited—and sometimes counter-productive—implementations of contemporary tajdîd and islâh. It is an appeal to reconsidering the sources through their necessary reconciliation with the world, its evolution, and human knowledge. Thus, reconciling conscience with science is imperative.

Keywords:   Islamic thought, Islamic sciences, usûl al-fiqh, tajdîd, islâh
