Who is a Muslim? Who has the authority to speak for Islam? These are
the questions that the Amman Message sought to answer. Issued in 2005
by 200 Islamic scholars from over 50 countries, the Message affirmed the
legitimacy of all major schools of Islamic thought and jurisprudence, forbade declarations of apostasy against other Muslims, and set forth the
qualifications of expertise for issuance of religious rulings (particularly
denouncing rulings encouraging violent extremism). This workshop will
use the Message as the lens through which questions of pluralism and
authority in Islam will be examined.
