Abstract

One of the most popular issues over the last decade is religious radicalization. This issue is often linked to religious texts, including Quranic verses which are literally understood as a legitimation of violence in the name of religion (Islam). It is an urged need to produce new Quranic exegeses, for several verses in the Qur'an are potentially understood as teaching violence. This research aims to re-interpret those Quranic verses. The questions arising are: what are the verses potentially serving as the basis of violence in the name of religion? How should these verses be interpreted in the context of a multi-cultural society to make a peaceful society? Using thematic method and hermeneutical approach, the paper constructs more humanist and tolerant understanding on Quranic verses in order to spread humanist and tolerant Islamic norms, rahmatan lil 'alamin.
