The Paradigm of Reform

  • Mohamed Haddad
Part of the Philosophy and Politics - Critical Explorations book series (PPCE, volume 11)


This re-reading of Abduh should pave the way for a re-reading of the whole movement called islahi (reformer): it must be distinguished from its rival, the Salafi movement. We would like here to give some milestones for a new critical history of the reformation in Islam. In the same way as Abduh’s’ dominant representation, which we have attempted to deconstruct earlier, the dominant representation of Islamic reform in modern times should also be revisited.
