Mona Siddiqui on the humility of Islamic Jurists...

‎"On the issue of forcing and enforcing of Islamic Law, remember this is jurisprudence that we are talking about, in these years we are talking largely about juristic texts which were not concerned so much with enforcement but what might be the right behavior. And that's why (Muslim) jurists with a lot of humility often added 'And God knows best but this is our opinion' or 'this is the opinion of our learned scholars'".

Mona Siddiqui, Professor of Islamic Studies, University of Glasgow

  1. She is extraordinarily platitudinous and she talks in riddles. I am for or against never crosses her lips ..she refers consistently to 'classical references' which most of us have litle or no understanding or knowledge of...and, like the good 'politician' she is ..she never answers the question ..what a disappointment Mona is ...
