Tariq Ramadan has emerged as one of the foremost voices of reformist Islam in the West, notable for urging his fellow Muslims to participate fully in the civil life of the Western societies in which they live. In this new book, he tackles head-on the main roadblock to such
participation--namely, the rulings of Islamic jurists that make Islam seem incompatible with modern, s

من يتابع طارق رمضان، يعرف بأنه كثيراً ما يكرر عبارة "الإصلاح من الداخل" أي من داخل المنظومة الفكرية الإسلامية نفسها، يقول: بأنه من السهل أن تلقي اللوم على العرب والفكر الإسلامي "المُتخلّف" وتدّعي الحداثة وما إلى ذلك وتكتفي بهذا، أما أن تحاول الإصلاح من الداخل؛ فهي العملية الأصعب بلا شك، وهذا ما أراد فعله في هذا الكتاب.

أفكار الكتاب -كما يقول رمضان نفسه- تأملات وملاحظات عامة، حاول فيها استثارة أسئلة مُلحة أكثر منه تقديم إجابات مُفصلة، أو طرح نظري فلسفي جديد. قسّم الكتاب إلى قسمين: نظري وعملي،

كتاب يستحق قراءة سريعة ثانية ..

أنا جربت طريقة في التعامل مع هذا الكتاب .. اللي هي تحديد هدف من القراءة ..
وكانَ الإصلاح الجذري كتابًا جذريًا في التعامل مع أهدافي ..
الأهداف كانت : - التعرف على طارق رمضان .. وعلى آرائه أكثر
- الاستفادة من الخلفية التاريخية لمدارس الفقه الإسلامي التي ذكرها في مقدمة الكتاب

In this book, Tariq Ramadan calls for a radical reform in Islamic Jurisprudence; a reform at the level of fundamentals rather than at the level of Ahkam. "Transformational reform not adaptation reform" he says.

The main idea he presents is that there are two revealed books not one: The Quran and the book of the universe, and that the second book should be given more weight and its scholars should be on an equal footing with the "scholars of the texts". "The center of gravity" according to Ramadan

Latest, on women:
"A lasting loving marriage cannot be achieved through prescriptive religious reminders, fatawa or lists of duties and rights. Yet unfortunately, Islamic discourse on marriage does mainly amount to just that and men very often make use of this fact: quite often indeed, men who never pay attention to any of Islam's spiritual teachings (regarding daily or married life) insist, when crisis comes, on their islamic rights as husbands, relying on a tradition that they know is favorabl

Wonderful piece of art!
very limited no. of times out of the "line", others are mostly "goals!"
I highly recommend the book!!!
Ce livre m'a usé. Ce n'ai pas sa longueur mais plutôt par l'intensité des informations qui y sont inscrites.

Le livre se divise principalement en trois parties:

1. TR explique le besoin et le pourquoi de la réforme: les adaptations habituelles des fatawa aux questions posées par le contexte actuel ne sont plus acceptés et ne font qu'assombrir le côté lumineux de la religion: à savoir sa capacité à l'adaptation au contexte tout en gardant une certaine fidélité aux Textes.

2. Petit parcours historiqu

Sarrah ANJ
a Must-read book.

What is the difference between Reform and Renewal?
What is the relation between texts and contexts? Do we care about both?
While reading this book, I remembered a saying of one of the western orientalists describing Islam as "This religion revolves around texts rather than people".. It is Not Islam that cares about texts rather than the context, it is our scholars who are still unable to build a reasonable relationship between the changing reality and the texts, unlike the Compa

This is THE book on true and effective reform of the contemporary muslim world and with it Professeur Ramadan has effectively entered the Pantheon of great muslim reformists of the likes of Al Ghazali. I was already a convinced fan of the professeur but this book put my admiration for him over the moon!!

As you can tell, I am an enthusiast of the thought of Dr.Ramadan but I think that his thought has actually evolved along the years: to my great surprise he is actually getting better and better a
Many will not understand it, broken into two parts: Theoretical and Practical, I do believe this book will have a lasting and profound impact on Muslim reformers. Some, both supporters and opponents in their haste think it is not radical, or that it is not radical enough and Ramadan is bringing up points from the past, deep within the classical tradition.

It is true that Ramadan deals seriously with the Tradition and his analysis of them are piercing. He has however re-discovered that the true r

Ramadan challenges the current pre-dominant way of thinking of many scholars. He deconstructs their thinking into elements, causes and detrimental consequences, and then suggests the alternative and correct way (in his view). His arguments are very convincing as he supports them with evidence from the Texts, history, knowledge of the world and indeed rationality. Anyone with insight into the actual religion of Islam, the problems of the Muslim world and Muslims today, can only read the pages of ...more

This book give me a new point of view especially about how I should implement Islam in my daily life. For example in treating women. Islamic community now, do not provide good access for women to access mosque with comfortably because the facilities for women are scarce. Majority of opinion in some Islamic community do not support the appearence of women in mosque. They prefer the women to pray in their house. Eventhough their prophet never prohibited them to attend the mosque.

This book has three main points: the first one is that the contemporary Muslim world (both East and West) must reconsider the terms and modalities of the reform process (islah, tajdid). The second one is the reconsideration of the contents and the geography of the sources for the Islamic Jurispudence(usul al-fiqh), and finally as Ramadan proposes, the text scholars and the contexts scholars should work together to create this radical reform that Ramadan suggests.

Wajar diberikan ruang untuk dibaca. Our fears dan keinginan kita untuk remain faithful of the Deen especially the text without understanding its meaning and substances might ended up kita mengkhianatinya. Harus peka dengan objectives, meaning, substances beyond just norms and forms supaya amal-amal kita tidak menjadi not more than contradictions in itself. Of course this is an oversummarization of the book, please make time to read and digest.
Hassan hamdoun
thought provoking, core concepts discussed addressing issues of Islamic ethics, rulings, education,women ,etc both the text and context on equal footings as well as relation and input from our modern world and society. Great insight into relationship between physical and sacred sciences and role and duties of all scholars.
Ummu Khalijah
I havent read this book yet but I follow his talk and discourse trough the videos. Still in progress to understand the idea of reform. I admire him so much as his grandfather :) Let's read this book together!
The book is the result of more than two decades of throurough research to make a diagnosis of the Muslim's intellectual crisis and to come up with an alternative approach...worth reading over and over!
As most of Ramadn's book and theories, very general, academic, lacking real life examples and concrete steps.
