Abdel-Hakim Ourghi’s Reform of Islam is an open indictment of prevailing conservative Islam which
insists on the absolute subjugation of the body and mind of all Muslims.

The author seeks a humanist understanding of Islam and aims to interpret Islam in today’s terms.
He argues against the historical alienation and transfiguration that still shape the collective
consciousness of Muslims in the 21st Century.

Using critical analysis and logic, the author aims to reveal the true core of Islam.

His 40 Theses include:

  • The freedom of the individual to interpret the Qur’an
  • No scholars as mediators between God and man
  • Islam does not claim to possess the absolute truth
  • Only a reformed and open Islam is a religion of peace
  • The Qur’an as the basis of a contemporary humanist ethics
