Summary
Article summary: 

Concerning the case of Abd Al-Sabour Shahin [concerning his book: ’My father Adam’], the report of the Research Institute confirmed that the book is an example of Al-Ta’wil (interpretation and explanation) for some of the verses and the Hadiths. It is true that the author used his imagination to reach some conclusions, but that is not wrong. The author did not deny the Islamic beliefs, nor does he contradict the Holy Qur’an and the Sunna.

The author of this article contends that the public discussion of Islamic issues in newspapers leads to confusion in the minds of the public, leads to splits in the Islamic world, and serves the enemies of Islam. When there is an issue raised such as the intercession or the denial of the Sunna, it is better for the scholars to agree upon one opinion and then announce it to the people in order to prevent them becoming confused.

Summary
Article summary: 

The controversy over the reality of Prophet Mohammed’s intercession on Doomsday has been dramatically aggravated after controversial thinker Dr. Moustafa Mahmoud repeatedly emphasized that there is no such a thing as intercession. His opinion stirred the emotions of Sheikhs and Muslim scholars who described his argument as nonsensical. Realizing the ferocity of the attack which his argument has stirred, Dr. Mustafa Mahmoud mitigated his tone by stressing that his opinion is based on his personal understanding of the Qur’an and that it is not binding on anybody.

Summary
Article summary: 

Throughout the years of my studying, I have been appealing to the Qur’an as the most honest source that one can depend on. Lately, I have been attacked and imprisoned for this call of mine that to depend on the Holy Qur’an rather than the Sunna. I do not mean that I deny the truthfulness of the Sunna, but all what I mean is that no one can suspect the truthfulness of the Holy Qur’an.
