"Her book, Hadith as Scripture: Discussions on the Authority of Prophetic Traditions in Islam (Palgrave, 2008), explores the development of the doctrine of duality of revelation and issues surrounding the relative authority of the Qur'an and the Prophetic Traditions (Hadith)." Wouldn't Dr. Musa's previous work conflict with the conference theme of "Towards a Qur'anic Society"? We already have a "hadithi society" and not just in the Muslim world. Look at the Jewish and Christian scriptures--aren't they really a collection of ahadith perhaps mixed with a small amount of revelation that hasn't been corrupted by humans? (And I don't think the Hindus and Buddhists are in any better shape.) We Muslims have a critical choice to make. We can either follow the ahadith "fairy tales" (some of which seem downright slanderous and/or pornographic), or we can follow the Word of Allah. We can't follow both.

Wassalam,
