International 2nd Conference on Muslim Society and Thought (ICMUST)

  • October 2, 2019 - 7:00pm
  • Surabaya, Indonesia

Distortion of religious teachings may be seen as a logical consequence of particular religion having interacted with a certain social reality. Any religion seems to have been distorted simply because it would inevitably stand face to face with social reality. Islam is without exception. Distortion however, may take place for many reasons, in addition to its interaction with social reality. It may take place from within, or else from without. It may flourish within a particular religion because of its ambiguity in its teaching or dogma, or may be because of its parochial perspective on certain problem. Historical and scientific evidences have shown that external factors play the larger role for distortion to take place. Modernity for instance, has been blamed as the strongest and major factor, apart from others.
