What does Quranite mean?


As I use the word, Quranite means:

  • one who regards the Qur’an as a complete and perfect revelation from God
  • one who employs his intellect and personal conscience in understanding and applying the Qur’an
  • one who engages with the Qur’an in faith with no pre-existing allegiance to any sect, dogma or religion
  • one who understands that the Qur’an presents us not with a religion, but with the key to ending the NWO tyranny

If we need a ‘religious’ reference, it is correct to some degree to think of a Quranite as a Qur’an-focused equivalent to a Karaite Jew.

Karaite Judaism is defined by Wikipedia as: […]a Jewish movement characterised by the recognition of the Tanakh alone as its supreme legal authority in Halakha (Jewish religious law) and theology. It is distinct from mainstream Rabbinic Judaism, which considers the Oral Torah, the legal decisions of the Sanhedrin as codified in the Talmud, and subsequent works to be authoritative interpretations of the Torah. Karaites maintain that all of the divine commandments handed down to Moses by God were recorded in the written Torah, without additional Oral Law or explanation. As a result, Karaite Jews do not accept as binding the written collections of the oral tradition in the Midrash or Talmud.
