Dear brother, W'A

"Ahle'Quran" has become a misnomer. "Maulana" Abdullah Chakralwi had founded a sect by this name in the early 20th century. He believed that the Quran leaves nothing for growing times, and every minor detail must be derived from it, for example, color of the turban, size of the beard, design of pyjamas, minor codes of dress with colors, color of sacrificial animals, and that even the modern education must be considered Haram since it is from outside the Quran. He vociferously opposed riding animals except the horses and camels, all new technology like cars, airplanes, fans, light bulbs and modern medicine. He taught his followers to pray three times a day and fast 9 days in Ramadhan. Today a few hundred of his followers exist in Pakistan.

It might be better to call ourselves as "Quran-oriented Muslims", "Followers of Al-Islam" or use the Quranic term "Muslimoon." [2:136] Even "Submitters" is a reasonable term to be used in the western scholarship.
