We cannot fight against the time. Everything must be evolving. I agree with modernity. But some people think that modernity means a great restoration. As I know and I believe, Islam is a flexible religion, with Al Qur'an as the guidance literature. Though the words never been changed, but the meanings are universal and touches every aspects of justice, live before and after death, Allah's creatures (human, angels, demons, all matter in this world - seen or not seen), even science.

Modernity in the real meaning will never disturb Islam, even supported by Islam. And unresponsible group misuse the freedom to find the meaning of Islam flexibility to face modernisation and change this Holy Religion according to their own opportunity to get what they want in wrong way and claimed that was for modernity. Just open your mind and understand what the true meaning of modernity. Allah will show the right way.
