There are secular paradigms woven into the curricula of secular schools. These, without adequate grounding in Islamic theology, can be massively detrimental to Muslim students’ grounding in Islam. I do think there is some benefit to be derived from exposure to opposing arguments. Yet, often, this thing is done whereby being ‘rational’ and being ‘religious’ are presented as being two diametrically opposed notions.
‘Liberal[ist] Islam’, also: an oxymoron. Its equal and opposite oxymoronic idea: extremist Islam. Islam is the religion of moderation, middles. And rationality. And, and, and: heart and soul. The goal, for us, is not to be ‘extreme’ [and Islamic ‘fundamentalism’ is used interchangeably with extremism only by those who do not… know the fundamentals of this faith] or to be negligent. But, in Shaykh Abdal Hakim Murad [I believe]’s words: we try (not to be ‘extremists’, but) to be extremely Muslim.
