Exploring Islam in a New Light is a bold, modern, and in-depth vision of Islam solely according to the Quran. This Islam is spiritual, humane, and scientific, far from a fanatic and militant image it carries in the West. This book is an impassioned call to understand Islam solely in Quranic terms and to reform practiced Islam, distorted by Hadith-based ideas."Abdur Rab offers a comprehensive vision of Islam using the Quran as his sole religious textual source. He intentionally avoids the hadith literature, which he believes, and argues, has done much damage to the message of the Quran. His work provides many thought-provoking insights and should be a significant contribution to the 'Quran only' movement in modern Islam."-Jeffrey Lang, Ph.D., Professor of Mathematics, University of Kansas, andauthor of Losing My Religion: A Call for Help"At a time when misconceptions about Islam are on the rise, even among Muslims,Abdur Rab has provided a compelling argument for returning to the Quran for a deeper, more complete, more original understanding of the meaning and message of Islam. The result is a book that posits not a NEW interpretation of Islam, but a more authentic one."-Reza Aslan, Ph.D., Professor of Creative Writing, UC, Riverside,and author of No god but God: The Origins, Evolution, and Future of IslamFor more about the book, visit the author's website: www.explorequran.org.
