Maḥmūd Shalt=ut and Islamic Modernism


Oxford University Press

This introductory chapter explains the coverage of this book, which is about the contribution of Egyptian Islamic scholar Shaykh Maḥmūd Shaltūt to Islamic modernism. Shaltūt's vision of Islam is universalistic and he always sought to address contemporary problems from within an Islamic framework and to make the fruits of the Islamic tradition accessible to ordinary Muslims. He was also involved in reform issues and was one of the pioneers of the movement for the conciliation between the schools of law.

Keywords:   Maḥmūd Shaltūt, Islamic modernism, Islam, Islamic traditions, Muslims, religious reform
