dc.description.abstract In a period characterized by Islamic revivalism, the thought of reformist Islamic thinkers like Mahmoud Mohamed Taha enriches Islam and allows it to answer fundamentalism and meet modem world challenges. What differentiates Taha from other contemporary thinkers with a modernist approach to Islam lies in the division he makes in the Qur'an: the First Message of Islam (verses preached in Medina) being the primitive approach and negative if implemented in the present, and the Second Message of Islam (verses preached in Mecca) being the ultimate and positive stage that ought to be reached. For Taha, Islam is the equilibrium between capitalism and communism on the one hand and between Judaism and Christianity on the other hand. en_US
