A collection of books and articles about islam/quran
« on: December 25, 2015, 01:39:30 PM »
Peace everyone,

In this thread I would like to share some articles and books with you. The articles and books I'm going to share are interesting and insightful/enlightening, in my opinion. Some of the articles and books I'm going to share in this thread are new, while others are old (I have shared them in past threads in FM).

As mentioned earlier, the articles and books I'm going to share are interesting and insightful/enlightening, in my opinion. However, there are some articles and books which I like more than others. For example, I like the articles and books of Wahiddudin Khan a lot. Wahiduddin Khan is a noted muslim scholar/author in India. He has a reformist vision on islam. His books are in English, Hindi, Urdu and other languages. He has translated the Quran from Arabic to English. And he has received several awards in the past. In my view, he is a force to be reckoned with. I think that he has written many excellent articles and some good books about islam/quran and life in general. You can read about Wahiduddin Khan in this interview.

In my first post in this thread, I'll share the articles and books of Wahiduddin Khan. And in my second post in this thread, I'll share the articles and books of some other muslim authors.

I'd like to share one more article here.

Was Solomon Superman?: There is no basis for demonology in the Quran

http://quranaissance.com/was-solomon-superman-there-is-no-basis-for-demonology-in-the-quran/?page-id=518&print=pdf

The information in the above-mentioned article does not necessarily reflect my view on the quran. I firmly support the idea of reading with a critical eye. Thus, I strongly recommend questioning/verifying what one reads and following the best interpretation; as the Quran has advised us to do (see verse 39:18 and 17:36).

Some of the topics are misleading, how can you say that x amount of 'gender' is equal to x amount of 'gender', that is wrong, that is a misleading topic.

god knows best, period.

Plus, most of the sources are from others than Quran. Quran is above all man made texts.

Thanks for the information Taro. It's good to have a thread for gathering these kinds of resources.

There's a paper that a lady wrote for her PhD, regarding the hadith. She's basically saying that Quranism dates back to the formative years of Islam, and that it has always been an issue for Muslims. Does anyone know what I'm on about, and have a link to the paper? I will try and dig it up again and post a link if I can find it. It was an interesting paper.

Peace csmith,

Thank you for showing interest in this thread. There is another thread in FM where people can share books about islam. Wakas has created a thread where he and others have shared some excellent books about Quran/islam and related topics. But as far as I know, there are no threads in FM where members can share articles about islam/quran. Therefore, this thread might be useful in regards to sharing articles about islam/quran. This thread might also be useful in regards to sharing books about islam/quran. If you or anyone else have found/discovered good/excellent articles and/or books about islam/quran, then you can share them in this thread.

Are you referring to a paper by Aisha Y. Musa? As far as I know, Aisha Musa has a PhD degree.
