Islam Brought Humanism when the Humanists were still Ignorant

Islam, Not Humanism – Shaykh Saalih al-Fawzaan replies to the recent calls among some Muslims that Islaam must yield to the humanist agenda, which seeks to place human reason and emotions as the criteria for good and evil. The Muslims who have been deceived by this call will often comment that Islaam has become backward and that secular humanism is the way towards progress and civility. However, as the author explains, Islaam has already brought complete justice for all the creation, even the animals! So Islaam and the Muslims are not in need of looking elsewhere to learn about justice, mercy and compassion.

NOTE: Shaykh Salih al-Fawzan currently resides on the Committee of Major Scholars in Saudi Arabia and is one of the leading voices of of truly moderate Islam in the world today.
