GAGASAN KHALED ABU FADL TENTANG “ISLAM MODERAT VERSUS ISLAM PURITAN (PERSPEKTIF SOSIOLOGI PENGETAHUAN)

Rusli Rusli

Abstract


The spread of the Islamic puritan movements, which have been
influenced by Wahhabism and Salafism, is not positive for Muslim
societies. According to Abu al-Fadl, the role of moderate Islam to
counter those movements is very important. The main purpose of the
moderate Islam project is to establish a strong civil society based on
tolerance and respect for human rights. To do this, the moderate Islam
takes the moral values such as equality, justice, and protection of human
life as the foundation of Islamic law. Therefore, if one finds a
contradiction between the literal meaning of religious texts and the basic
moral values, the latter should be prioritized. Moreover, to interpret
religious texts, one does not only need religious traditional knowledge,
but also modern social sciences and humanities.
