• Can The Quran Be Re-Interpreted to Fit Modern Times?

    I find that "Westernized" Muslims are quick to espouse the Western attitude of freedom of religion and tolerance that flowered after WWII showed the possible results of intolerance. However, I am not sure that these people are faithful to the Quran. You quote verses of the Quran that scholars say were abrogated by other verses, especially the "Sword or Islam" verse. The tolerance of the Quran requires that the non-Muslims submit to a second-class status and pay a special tax and suffer other indignities. Muslims speak of "pushing the Jews into the sea" which sounds pretty intolerant to me. They kidnap Christian girls in Nigeria. Has there been outrage among the people of Islam over that? I want to feel that Islam can be a religion of the 21st-century but the Quran seems to be a stumbling block as long as Islamic scholars will insist that it is the "literal" word of God. The idea that Arabic is God's language seems like blasphemy since it implies that God "speaks." I think my real question is whether the Quran can be reinterpreted to fit into the current age as the Torah and the rest of the Bible have been reinterpreted? Thank you for your answer. I would like to believe that Islam can adopt to modern times.
