Revival and Reform in ISLAM by Fazlur Rahman pdf free download. Posthumous publishing is always a hazardous task, and thus editors of
such published work must be prepared to take the risks involved. At the time of his death the Pakistani scholar Fazlur Rahman (1919-1988) had partly completed a draft of a book entitled “Revival and Reform: A Study in Islamic Fundamentalism.” The author got as far as five chapters that covered the early history of Islam and some of the major epoch-making figures in the history of Islamic revival. Life did not permit him to complete his commentary on the section dealing with modern fundamentalism as he wished.

Some critics may argue that it may have been best if the incomplete book was never published. Others may appreciate Fazlur Rahman’s last thoughts. Despite my hesitation, T was encouraged by the fact that several of the late author’s friends and students were eager to see this volume published. In particular Fazlur Rahman’s wife, Mrs Bilqis Rahman, was supportive of the idea of publication. After her husband died, she placed this manuscript in the custody oE Professor John Woods, director of the Center for Middle Eastern Studies and a colleague of Fazlur Rahman at the University of Chicago.

Although I was not a student of Fazlur Rahman in the formal sense, I consider myself among those who benefited tremendously from his writings and ideas. Thus, when as a visiting South African fellow at the University of Chicago in 1990, Professor Woods showed me this manuscript, I immediately expressed an interest in examining it.
