A popular criticism of the Quranist term in The Quranists Space
Question: “First of all I don’t understand why you guys named the group as Quranist. Allah never approved a Muslim by any other name other than as Muslim. Please explain?”
Answer (by Farouk A. Peru): ‘quranism’ denotes our method, our way of understanding HOW to be muslim. It is not a REPLACEMENT for the term ‘muslim’. A ‘muslim’ is an agent of wholeness and soundness. How do people do it? Many ways. Sunni Muslims follow Quran and Sunnah, Shia Muslims follow Quran and Ahl Al-Bayt and Quranist Muslims follow the Quran and try to interpret it in the best way possible. Hope that helps, sir 🙂
