Mr Pipes is right

Reader comment on item: Pope Benedict XVI and the Koran

Submitted by tariq (United Arab Emirates), Jan 22, 2006 at 06:33

Islam CAN be interpreted and adapted according to times. but only to a certain extent. Pope is wrong when he says that there is no possibility of adapting Islam or interpreting it. Islamic principles mainly come from the Quran which is written in Arabic and therefore has to be interpreted but not to the extent that Fazlur Rahman says.
