Foreword

What are the issues

These reflections sum up a few issues that the author developed as a result of working in Islamic education in Malaysia for fifteen years.  These encompass the question of how the Quran relates to earlier revelations, problematic assumptions in jurisprudence,  and Quran literacy.

Aim of this book

These issues have unnecessarily added to tensions between the Muslim world and the West. To reduce tensions, it is advisable to highlight the shared spiritual roots of both civilisations. This book intends to make a contribution in that direction.
