It was dedicated to deconstructing some of the Islamic concepts used in the field of extremism. The symposium dealt with three concepts:
Caliphate – Islamic states – apostasy
The discussion focused on the complete absence of these terms from the Qur’an text and how the term Islamic state first appeared in 1923, and that the caliphate and the caliph are two contingent attributes that are neither among the pillars of Islam nor faith, but rather are ijtihad among worldly matters.
Regarding apostasy, the discussion was held about the absence of the limit of apostasy from the Qur’an and the contradiction of the hadd with explicit Qur’anic verses and proven behavior of the Messenger
The conclusion was that there are many concepts and terminology that adhere to the adjective of Islamism or Sharia in order to market it and exploit the believers. As they say Islamic dress – Islamic food – an Islamic park, they say an Islamic state – an Islamic group and an Islamic party, and this is an insult to religion and a devaluation
