 Assalam alaikum Dr. Ahmad,
    Thanks for that piece on Religion and Secularism. My little comment is that some Scholars and Orientalists fail to grasp that the essence of Islam, as a religion, is justice in terms of relationship between man and God, man and society and man and the universe. All human activities with regard to good and bad are governed by the Islamic precepts which are well defined in the Qur'an and the Sunnah. And that no Government, a group of people or an individual has the right to interprete the principles of Islam outside the framework of the Shari'a. It then logically follows that Islam cannot be divided into secular and religious.
                                                ' THEN IS IT ONLY A PART OF THE BOOK THAT YE
                                                   BELIEVE IN, AND DO YOU REJECT THE REST'?
                                                                                                           Qur'an-2:85
     2. One hopes that works like your's will further clarify the position accordingly.


                                                                                     Abu Fauzi.
