In a manner which would seem to be quite exceptional within contemporary world religions, there is an impressive amount of activity occurring in writing works of Quran interpretation throughout the Muslim world. For Muhammad Abduh, the central problem which had to be faced was the decay of Islamic society. Leading the way for a changed Quranic interpretation, Abduh struggled against the traditional enterprise of tafsir. The doctrine of the ijaz of the Quran has been seen to assert the totally non-contingent nature of the text: it is fully divine and the language is that of God. Some Muslims have urged a somewhat modified understanding of the miraculousness of the Quran. The existence of Islam classically depends upon the miracle of the Quran. Fazlur Rahman was a fervent Modernist. In approaching the text of the Quran, he wished to differentiate legal regulations from moral regulations, the former being contingent, the latter non-contingent.
