Gamal Abd al-Rahim Arabi

Gamal Abd al-Rahim Arabi is a Sudanese activist for enlightenment and religious reform, writing regularly on these issues. He is the author of a book in Arabic titled Opening the Muslim Mind in which he criticized the fundamentals of traditional Islamic thought and suggested a new approach whereby Muslims may catch up with contemporary levels of global modernization.

He is author also of a book titled Women in Salafist Thought in which he endeavoured to attribute the suppression on women to traditionalist, rather than specifically Islamic, thought as represented in the Qur’ān and the Sunna.
