Newish Muslim Posture - DeobandoMutazili

As in (a) know your material and your history (Deoband) and (b) Give your brain a go (Mutazili).

Usually both of these terms are thought of as pejoratives but i think its quite a cool hybridised stance to have, especially if you are into history and education like Fazlur Rahman was.

Of course in defining these terms only the better qualities of mentioned movements are invoked.
