New Voices of ISLAM by Farish A Noor pdf free download. One of the most significant recent developments in the Muslim world is the
emergence, across the globe, of a new type of religious thinker, collectively called Muslim intellectuals. The simplest (and most common) way to define Muslim intellectuals is by contrasting them with the ulama, on the one hand, and secular intellectuals, on the other. Like the latter, Muslim intellectuals address issues of importance to their societies and contribute to shaping public opinion by taking part in debates in the public sphere.

Unlike their secular peers, however, they express in their writings a strong concern with Islam and commitment to the
Muslim u m m a. As interpreters of Islamic teachings they engage with the social and political realities of contemporary society and with the philosophical and moral implications of modernity. Not only do they address entirely different questions from those typically dealt with by the ulama, their approach to the sacred texts and their methods of interpretation also tend to differ and be informed by modern currents in philosophy and hermeneutics.

Modern Muslim intellectuals have generally been educated outside the traditional institutions of religious learning, but many of them have acquired a considerable command of classical Islamic scholarship as well. Some prominent Muslim intellectuals (such as Ali BulaƧ in Turkey and Nurcholish Madjid in Indonesia) have in fact graduated from the academic institutions designed to train modern ulama, but they are exceptions. What distinguishes them from their fellow graduates and the ulama in general is the role they play in public debate, the sort of questions that they address, and their engagement in discourses outside the Islamic tradition.
