Dr Pipes,

Very interesting article. Change is coming to Islam thanks to the efforts of Arabic speaking Muslims in the Middle East that are challenging Ahl el-Deen (the Islamic clerics) and even the state itself. What would be such change? Only Allah Knows but it could be that Arabic speaking Muslims are heading in the same way as Christians in Europe with far less religion and more 'Elmaniyya (secularism) and this would be a death blow to Islam! And would this change make things better for Muslims in the Arab world? We all hope so! Many Muslims are realizing that the West brought many benefits to their lives. For example high quality medicine leading to improving the life span as well as significant decrease in Neonatal, Infant and Maternal mortality and morbidity. And the internet allowed young Muslims in the Middle East to know what is happening in the world and allowed access to the text books of Islam that used to be read only by Ahl al-'Elm or the Muslim clerics and now they know about the disasters in their books the likes of "Breast Feeding of the Adult" Many young Muslims were horrified by the likes of Da'esh and many were admitting that the source of such atrocities is their Islamic books!

So what would Islam be in let us say 100 years from now? Only Allah knows but it is not going to be the Islam of today!

BTW: As for Muslims from India and Pakistan! They have no say in what Islam will or will not be. Islam is primarily an Arab religion as well as the Arab culture
