Abstract

‘It is the Qur’an that we have to deal with, if we are to succeed in paving the path for a humanistic Islam. Qur’an has been treated as synonyms to God. It is as if we dared to question the nature of Qur’an, we are questioning our faith in God, and at the same time we declare our rejection of Islam itself. Qur’an in this sense is the Church of Islam. Separating this church of Islam from state’s laws and jurisprudence is imperative; not only for the future of a humanistic Islam, but also for institut-ing legal gender equality.
