Scary Attitudes of Emerging QF’ists…


An innocent post in an fb forum today turned some fanatics against a good friend of fine. My friend innocently posted a link to an archived website of Dr Kamal Omar and recieved a baptism of fire that would put the American Govt to shame!

The QF’ists who attacked him were repulsed by the notion that Dr Omar discovered a very quranic notion of al-kitab before their guru. Note that their guru himself didn’t say a word, only his minions did.

This is a very sad situation. These people are quranists but do not use the term. Yet, in their commitment to unity (apparently having a name makes them a sect), they are fanatical about the originality and authenticity of their pedigree. Should this be what quranism is about? Who cares who discovered a concept! We should care that a concept is discovered and we should work on refining it.

Unity….NOT uniformity. Association…NOT sect!

    This is the best and most excellent summary of the basic outlook from a Quranic perspective i have read. The Quranist approach is exactly that, an approach, and one which is oriented towards the goal of freedom of knowledge for humankind and Muslims alike. Afterall, true knowledge is all from God at the end of the day and as we believe in one God, and one humankind, we must share and grow together so that we become verdant (indicated by the word injeel – root – nun jiim lam) like the believers are described as being in 48:29 inshaAllah.
    Salaamun Alaykum to all, and peace and love to all, including IIPC and You guys and everyone. Thankyou

  2. ASA,
    I typed in Kamal Omar and this was the Third site I found defending my homie 🙂
    That was ridiculous and uncalled for how they got at him together and somewhat unexpected …. Brother Rizwan meant no harm by posting it and neither was he being instigative by posting it, because he posted it everywhere not just that group!
    to me it doesn’t matter who discovers what concept as long as the concept is out there for people to review and use and add to their knowledge to spread and teach!
    I guess what they forgot was 3:188 the beggining part of it … there is a lesson for everyone in that verse including us …. all praise belongs to Allah and no one else for any contribution of concepts interpretations etc and none NONE belong to any of us!
