Faith Without Fear – Irshad Manji
Speaking out against injustice
Using the beauty of Islam to speak out
Creator and conscious
She believes that Islam has become corrupted by Muslims
Past = violence & silence of present history
Jihad – sees Muhammad as their role model and views westerners today as the
pagans of before- who were against Muhammad’s followers who “had to fight
Islamic extremism – prophet said that women were the cause of division among
men – thus they need to be conservative so that they could be controlled
Islam became dominated in Tribal thinking
To many ummah – causing division was a sin and weakens the community
Equating debate with division suppresses our consciousness
Muslims in the west know how to use their freedom of speech – except when it
comes to Islam
Demonstrations show Muslims as people who are incapable of handling situations
with maturity (i.e. Dutch cartoons) – shows the minority reacting to a majority’s
thoughts/feelings
Most Muslims are taught that Islam is perfect and to criticize it is blasphemy
Qur’an is exploited to justify violence against women
Theo Van Gogh – a film creator – was assassinated because of his movie
Feelings of offence ARE NOT EQUAL to feelings of discrimination
Is the Qur’an the perfect word of God?
Question Muslims, not Islam
Ink of the scholar is more valuable than the blood of the martyr” – the Islam she
loves that values knowledge
The hope of Islam today may be Ijtihad – reasoning – through Ijtihad you can bust
out of tribal conformity
Rules that have been given come from the abuse of power
