Further Details
Abstract Considered through the lens of Western liberalism, progress and emancipation seem to be incompatible with Muslim reformist outlooks. However, the exegesis of islah, the Islamic reform, examined in its own paradigm, reveals alternative approaches to modernity which are able to escape the antinomy tradition-modernity as Islamic reform occurs within the tradition, not against it.
