The Muslim Institute monthly gathering invites you to a debate on Islamic reform with speakers Edip Yuksel and Farouk A Peru.

Edip Yuksel is one of the leading figures in the Islamic Reform movement. He is a proponent of the code 19 as a prophetic mathematical system in the Qur'an.

Farouk A. Peru is a Phd Candidate in Islam and Postmodernism and teaches Islamic Studies at King's College, London. He is a Fellow of the Muslim Institute.

The 19 theory has convinced many of the 'truth' of the Qur'an and yet has courted much controversy due to its rejection of two verses, namely 9:128-129.
