Reader comment on item: [Finding Moderate Muslims:] Do you believe in modernity?

Submitted by alia robia (Syrian Arab Republic), Nov 5, 2004 at 00:36

Mr. Pipes
I am an Arab Muslim woman and I don't feel that there is only one right way in all life categories that are missed in Islam. I hope you as an educated man will read a translation of Quran .

Wish you the best .

Daniel Pipes replies:

I studied the Qur'an in the original in Cairo in 1973 with the reformist sheikh, Ahmad Hasan al-Baquri. It was a powerful experience.
