There are a small group of Muslims who have become intellectually colonialised, and are so awed by Western civilization, that they have embraced mind body and soul, the Western ideology of Liberalism (Secularism, Democracy, Nationalism & Individualism) known euphemistically as Freedom or Liberty. These Liberal Muslims are known as Modernists owing to the fact that they follow whatever is currently in fashion in the world [i.e. modern].




Is it then the judgment of ignorance that they desire? And who is better than Allah to judge for a people who are sure? [Quran 5:50
]



Unfortunately, so tied down to the Muslim community are they, that instead of leaving Islam and pursuing these desires, they choose to remain amongst Muslims, and get Muslims to follow along with them
.



They [the Hypocrites] wish that you reject (Faith), and thus that you all become equal (like them). So, take not Auliya (protectors or friends) from them [Quran 4:89
]



Modernists usually interpret the clear texts of Quranic verses they disagree with as non-literal (allegorical), abrogated or only for the exact context they were revealed in (i.e. now expired). They then affirm and claim a definite and certain meaning from a verse that is open to interpretation and unrelated that conveniently agrees with Liberalism. They then reject large swathes of hadith that disagree with Liberal values (being their guiding usool), and desperately find weak, fabricated hadith that can be easily twisted to justify whatever Western morality and laws dictate

He it is Who has sent down to thee the Book: In it are verses basic or fundamental (of established meaning); they are the foundation of the Book: others are allegorical. But those in whose hearts is perversity follow the part thereof that is allegorical, seeking discord, and searching for its hidden meanings, but no one knows its hidden meanings except Allah [Quran 3:7
]


From this process, they justify women wearing bikinis, same-sex marriage being halal, the hijab being optional even dis-likable, women and men having identical inheritance and gender roles, a sharia government is called unislamic, but a secular one is called Islamic. They claim the Hudud laws have expired, or even were misunderstood for 1,400 years! Until of course, Liberalism came along to guide us of course to a more enlightened Liberal penal code
.



The hypocrites, both men and women, are all the same. They order what is wrong and forbid what is right [Qur'an 9:67
]



Understandably, Muslims respond that those beliefs are not Islamic, and are clear kufr (rejection of truth). The actions of Modernists are outed as not from Islam, and if it werent for the possibility of ignorance in this current declined state of the Muslim world they would rightly deserve to be denounced as outside the fold of Islam
.


In response, the Liberal Muslims claim that they are Muslims, because they testify to one God, and all that is revealed in the Quran [except the political laws of course]. Modernists respond with outrage that their ideas have not been respected under the Islamic right of respect for difference of opinion. They argue that no one can condemn a Muslim out of the fold of Islam for their actions, nor their mere difference of opinion
.



There are some people who Say: We believe in Allah and in the Last Day, but they are not really believers. They seek to deceive Allah and those who believe, but they only deceive themselves without noticing. There is a disease in their hearts, and Allah increases their disease, they will have a painful retribution for what they have denied. (Quran 2:8-10
)



Of course, when an act of Terrorism is committed against the West by a wayward Muslim [Terrorism meaning an act that deliberately targets civilians] the Liberal Muslims rush to condemn the individual as acting against the teachings of Islam, and even declare the individual as not a Muslim! This is despite the fact that Terrorists too claim they have a valid Islamic opinion, and that it should be respected under the Islamic right of respect for difference of opinion. The Terrorists argue that no one can condemn a Muslim out of the fold of Islam for their actions, nor their mere difference of opinion. In response, those Terrorists call those Liberal Muslims traitors and apostates
.


The truth of the matter is, that both the Liberal Muslims, and the Terrorist Muslims are both Modernists each using the ideology or methodology borne of some current fashion in the world. In the end, the only truth in their judgements, is their judgements of eachother
.



They swear by Allah that they said nothing (bad), but really they said the word of disbelief, and they disbelieved after accepting Islam [Quran 9:74]
