Maḥmūd Shalt=ut and Islamic Modernism


Oxford University Press

This concluding chapter sums up the key findings of this study on the contribution of Shaykh Maḥmūd Shaltūt to Islamic modernism. It suggests that the importance of Shaltūt's work lies not only in his contribution as an Islamic scholar, but in the example he set as a Muslim religious leader. As a religious leader he was a force for moderation, tolerance, and Muslim unity and he always sought to raise the religious consciousness of ordinary Muslims. As a scholar he demystified the Islamic disciplines of fiqh and tafsīr to make them accessible to lay Muslims.

Keywords:   Maḥmūd Shaltūt, Islamic modernism, Muslims, religious leader, Islamic scholar, tafsīr, fiqh
