(p.149) Epilogue
Improvisational Islam

Nur Amali Ibrahim

Cornell University Press

This chapter offers some closing reflections. It asserts that Muslims are working hard to accommodate secular liberal ideals in their religious practices and challenges Western secular liberals to work equally hard to accommodate Muslims and other religious people. It concludes by arguing that our shared existence cannot be improved by putting Islam on one side and the West on the other, Muslims on one side and Western secular liberals on the other, “good” Muslims on one side and “bad” Muslims on the other, religion on one side and secularism on the other.

Keywords:   Islam, Muslims, Secular liberalism, Improvisation
