About the Book

A progressive Muslim not only does not adopt sectarian approach but is respectful of the entire humanity as per the Quran (17:70). He leaves mutual differences, ideological and theological, to Allah and does not condemn anyone who differs as kafirs. It only widens differences and intensifies conflict. A progressive Muslim uses, as per the Quran, wisdom (hikmah) and godly words (maw’izat al-Hasanah) in discussion and leaves rest to Allah. He does not try to be judgemental.
