Liberalism and progressivism in Islam | Western Islam Dissected Pt.1


“Oh you who believe, enter into Islam completely and do not follow the footsteps of Shaytaan. Indeed, he is to you a clear enemy.” [Quran 2:208]

Liberal Islam has spread across many nations. Where professed Muslims form a body of liberal-sought understanding and practice of Islam. And create a more ‘progressive’ Islam.

Islam, however, is more than just a religion and is most certainly more than a fundamentalist political movement. It is a civilisation, a lifestyle, that has variations from country to country.
