Salam Alaikum everybody and thank you for your time.
My Name is Jonas. I'm 26 old and I'm studing politics, history and religion of the Middle East at the university in Copenhagen.
This semester i've chosen a course called "Lived Islam" which is a course about different types of Islam. I've long been lurking on your great page here and wanted to make my exam assignment on the Quranist ( to put it under one name).
I've read the books by Rashid Khalifa, Edip Yuksel, Kassim Ahmad ect and now I wanted to hear from the believers if you would be so kind answering some short questions about yourself it would be greatly appreciated.
I am interested in the results of your research. I will share this with some of my contacts and try to direct them here so that they post their answers. It would be interesting if you could also include a question about their political position on the so-called "war on terror". Or listing their list for top 5 problems facing the world and top 5 positive global events/developments or something like that. Perhaps, a question about how to promote the message of the Quran to masses might also elicit some creative and inspiring ideas.
As for the word Quranist, what about including a few alternatives too in your final introduction of this research, such as, non-sectarian Muslims, Rational Monotheists, Muslim Reformists, Peacemakers etc, since most of us do not call ourselves Quranists; it is a label generally used to depict us by our opponents.
PS: You should also note the works of Layth al-Shaiban (Saudi Arabia), Prof. Caner Taslaman (Turkey), Dr. Abdur Rab (Bengladesh-USA), Prof. Aisha Musa (USA), Dr. Ahmad Mansour (Egypt-USA), Arnold Mol (Holland), Dr. Shabbir (Pakistan-USA), Dr. Asghar Engineer (India), Prof. Ali Fazely (Iran-USA), Wakas, Ayman, and few others.
You may post this at 19.org/forum site too.
