1 Sahil Badruddin = ""The contemporary Muslim community—nearly a billion and a half strong —bears almost no resemblance to the small community of faith that Muhammad left behind in seventh century Arabia. While the Revelation may have ended, the Quran is still a living text and must be treated as such. The notion that historical context should play no role in the interpretation of the Quran—that what applied to Muhammad’s community applies to all Muslim communities for all time—is simply an untenable position in every sense."- No god but God, Reza Aslan"
