Abou el Fadl: A Great Scholar and Moderate Muslim

Reader comment on item: Conference of the Books: The Search for Beauty in Islam

Submitted by Adam Chisti (United States), Nov 4, 2002 at 02:00

I'm dismayed that Khaled Abou el Fadl has been called an extremist. Why does Abou el Fadl need professionals to guard his home? Clearly because he is a target of extremists who use the cloak of Islam. ... The man is the furthest thing from an extremist.
