Description: As a result of the appearance of contemporary interpretations of Islam, the task of understanding Islam as it has been lived and viewed traditionally over the centuries becomes ever more difficult. One knows who speaks for Western interpretations of Islam, who for the modernists within the Islamic world and who for that whole spectrum of thought and action usually called fundamentalism. But then, who speaks for traditional Islam, the Islam lived for centuries by theologians and jurists, by philosophers and scientists, by Sufis and simple people of faith- the Islam that is in fact still followed by the vast majority of Muslims, from the Atlantic to the Pacific?
