I am a self proclaimed moderate Muslim. Yes we do exist. I want to propose a new type of Jihad for my brothers and sisters in Islam. How about if we announce a Jihad against ignorance? The first command in Koran given to our prophet Mohammad (May peace be upon him) was to read. His message came to deliver people from Jahiliya (The era of ignorance and darkness). I will attempt to discuss a verse of Koran a day.
Why are we relying on centuries- old interpretations? It is time to point out the illogical inconsistency of long held Islamic beliefs with the message of Koran. As a moderate Muslim I believe it is time for us to update Islam.
“Indeed Allah will not change the condition of people until they change what is in themselves.” Surah 13, verse 11
