1 Sahil Badruddin = ""Ultimately, an Islamic democracy must be concerned not with reconciling popular and divine sovereignty, but with reconciling “people’s satisfaction with God’s approval,” to quote Abdolkarim Soroush. And if ever there is a conflict between the two, it must be the interpretation of Islam that yields to the reality of democracy, not the other way around. It has always been this way. From the very moment that God spoke the first word of Revelation to Muhammad—“Recite!”—the story of Islam has been in a constant state of evolution as it responds to the social, cultural, political, and temporal circumstances of those who are telling it. Now it must evolve once more."-No god but God, Reza Aslan"
