Place of Tolerance in Islam by Khaled Abou El Fadl

Book Description

Here, a prominent critic of Islamic Puritanism leads a lively debate by arguing that Islam is a deeply tolerant religion. Through a close reading of the Qur'an, Khaled Abou El Fadl demonstrates that injunctions to violence against non-believers stem from misreadings. Even jihad, or so-called holy war, has no basis in Qur'anic text or Muslim theology, but instead is an outgrowth of social and political conflict. Leading scholars of Islam offer enhanced commentary.
