  6. I'm starting this series of posts to clarify my position on a few issues, whilst trying to answer some questions @Ibn al-Hussain posed in this thread, God-willing. I want to eventually prove this claim: that the rise of Akhbarism, and consequently what I term the 'Lite Akhbaris', has been the cause of death of the Shi'i intellectual, and the death of the Shi'i jurist-theologian in the Quranic sense (not in the conventional sense). I will compare the methodologies used by the classic scholars to deduce rulings covering all religious topics (not just 'lesser' fiqh, as it was commonly known then), to the now commonly applied sanad/chain method, institutionalised by S. Al-Khoei (rA). I want to show that this latter methodology has allowed Akhbarism to re-establish itself in the shape of 'Lite Akhbaris', operating under the guise of Usoolism. Lastly, I will try to provide a solution on bringing out the living from the dead. Update (02/01/18) Structure of upcoming posts related to this topic: What is meant by Akhbarism?

    Islam Without Allah? By Colin Turner

    It's a critique of Shi'i scholarly methodology, not a refutation of Shi'ism. I don't don't believe in refuting the other, whoever they may be.

    Islam Without Allah? By Colin Turner

    Yes, I thought I've mentioned his name before: Seyyed Kamal Al Haydari, for starters, being an 'establishment' scholar (the establishment hates him) , and various 'banned' Arab modernist thinkers that you would probably not have heard of (like the Egyptian scholar Nasr Hamed Abu Zayed).

    Islam Without Allah? By Colin Turner

    Yeah that's going to take a while. I was planning to give you all an outline of the research I've done so far in the two posts I've started some months ago.. Didn't quite go to plan. In any case, I won't delineate anything in detail here until I've been accepted into a PhD, completed a proper research study on my chosen subject and published my book.... which might be a few years yet considering my age, family commitments etc... So don't hold your breath.

    No, the research is done, I just need to find a way to publish it.

    yes, I do indeed have a vested interest to prove the established narrative wrong.
