Liberal Islam Polemic: A response

[Event has ended]
Fri, 11 April 2014, 7.30 - 10.30 pm | English
Abdul Halim Abdul Karim


Fees: $15 per pax (notes will be provided)

Of late, a movement calling itself Liberal Islam has come to the fore to challenge traditional mainstream ideas about the Islamic creed (Aqidah), about the proper relationship between Islam and other religions, about how the Qur'an needs to be understood and re-interpreted to make it more relevant to the times and about how Islam needs to be reformed to meet present challenges.

While these ideas seem appealing to some Muslims who are trying to find ways to argue that Islam is still relevant for modern times, Liberal Islam represents a viewpoint, which in fact goes against many of the precepts and fundamentals of Islam as a complete and comprehensive way of life.

This talk would briefly identify and analyse the principles behind the Islam Liberal movement providing some context from which this movement sprang vis-à-vis the development of ideas in Islamic thought.

This talk will suggest that Muslims in Singapore need to be wary, not only of the ideas propounded by Liberal Islam but also be cognizant of the implications of these ideas insofar as they undermine the Islamic Aqidah so treasured by the world's ummah.
