Title : Liberal Islam web sites

Description :
This website brings users into contact with online resources on Muslims and Islamic organisations generally associated with the liberal tradition within Islam. It is maintained by Charles Kurzman, an associate professor of Sociology at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill who is also the editor of 'Liberal Islam: A Source Book' (Oxford: Oxford University Press, 1998). The materials are organised into three parts. The first is devoted to writers who were included in the anthology like Fatima Mernissi, Yusuf Qaradawi, Mohamed Arkoun, Ali Shariati and Muhammad Shahrour. The second is on prominent Muslims not featured in the anthology like Asghar Ali Engineer, Muqtedar Khan and Fethullah Gulen. And the third focuses on organisations from around the world that promote the liberal theme.
