Shaykh al-Fawzan on Liberalism, Pluralism and Individual Freedoms

April 4, 2009

The Islamic View Concerning Liberalism, Pluralism and the Western Concept of Individual Freedoms – Shaykh Saalih al-Fawzaan answers a question concerning the infiltration of Liberalist ideas into the Islamic lands, accompanied with the unrestricted personal freedoms that Liberalism calls to – without any attention to what is beneficial or harmful from these freedoms to the individual or to the society at large. This ideology often become widespread under the pretence of pluralism, which allows for equality for all beliefs and creeds, no matter if they contradict the belief in the Creator or not. The noble Scholar explains the condition of the ‘Liberalist Muslims’, and he also answers the fallout that resulted from his initial answer to this question.
