Good to be back for a hot second.
The reason why I left all the group previously, if some of you actually remember/ know me, was SOLELY because of the use the word “Qur’anist”.
Today I checked my email, and lo and behold, a Qur’an Only Group was formed! I had a mixed reaction due to the title.
Now, I am amazed at the growth of the type of believers, and inshallah Allah will continue to guide us to the Qur’an.
Here is my question. WHAT is the basis for the use of the word Qur’anist? I have thought of it all, debated, pondered, sought guidance in the Qur’an, and my own person interpretation is that the name is another example of a sectarian ideal imposed on a perfect Deen in Islam.
I want the best arguments on why the name exist and for whom, for what cause, and in what context.
I know their are folks that agree with my belief, but I want to be shown why I am wrong.
Peace be with you and may Allah guide the believers and those of ignorance.
