La réforme en islam : quelques clés de lecture

“Should Islam be reformed today? “Is a simple question in appearance, but complex in reality, which often comes up in view of the many excesses committed in its name and which punctuate our news, requiring it to be treated with rigor and objectivity.
It is known that Muslims have always been able to adapt to time and space. ? Thanks to this adaptability, he managed to survive first, to develop later. One of the reasons why we often speak of Islam in the plural and not in the singular. And like all ideologies, Islam is inexorably called to reform itself so that it can remain in the frenetic race of ideas and thoughts. And faced with this observation, there is no complex in submitting to this exercise, which basically resembles an adaptation operation that is necessary from time to time.
Inscribed in this perspective, the present study, far from being pretentious proposing premature solutions, hopes to offer the reader some keys of reading which has just forged his own opinion and perhaps, with a little fortune and patience, appropriate some elements of the answer to a very complex question.

« L’Islam doit-il être réformé aujourd’hui ? » est une question simple en apparence, mais complexe en réalité, qui revient souvent eu égard aux nombreux débordements commis en son nom et qui émaillent notre l’actualité, imposant de la traiter avec rigueur et objectivité.
Il est connu que les musulmans ont toujours su s’adapter au temps et à l’espace. ? la faveur de cette faculté d’adaptation, il a réussi à survivre d’abord, à se développer par la suite. Une des raisons pour lesquelles on parle souvent d’islam au pluriel et non au singulier. Et à l’instar de toutes idéologies, l’islam est inexorablement appelé à se réformer afin de pouvoir demeurer dans la course effrénée des idées et des pensées. Et face à ce constat, il n’a aucun complexe à se subordonner à cet exercice qui ressemble, dans le fond, à une opération d’adaptation nécessaire de temps à autre.
Inscrite dans cette perspective, la présente étude, loin de se vouloir prétentieuse proposant des solutions prématurées, espère offrir au lecteur quelques clés de lecture qui lui permettront de se forger un avis propre et peut-être, avec un peu de fortune et de patience, s’approprier quelques éléments de réponse à une question fort complexe.
