Title Review

The book presents a seminal study of the intellectual history of Islamic reform movements. It focuses on the Ahl al-Qur’an movements in the Punjab region of the Indian subcontinent, viewing them as a disparate set of movements originating during the late nineteenth century. It examines the movements and their leaders as espousing the centrality of the Holy Quran as the only divine text required for the inference of religious doctrines, as they focused on Islam as a region compatible with modernity and as progressive-egalitarian in its spirit. It delves into Sayyid Ahmad Khan’s revisionist discourse on the Hadith, the movement of Maulwi ‘Abdullah Chakralawi and others. It views the role and influence of Ahl al-Qur’an movements and ideas during the twentieth century. It also shows how the movements have influenced the approaches of traditional scholars of Islam.
