The aim of this article is to present the Scripturalist Movement in Islam, also called the Quranic Movement. Scripturalism, from Latin 'sola scriptura' – meaning 'by scripture alone', is based on an assumption that the only sound and perfect authority is the revealed scripture of a given religion, e.g. the Torah, the Bible, or the Qur'an, excluding, however, their respective commentaries, traditions or scholarly interpretations. Thus, in Scripturalist Judaism, the Talmud is discarded. e.g. by Karaites and Samaritans, in Protestantism - the apostolic tradition, while in Islam - Ahadith and Sunnah. The article shows the historical perspective of the Scripturalist Movement from the 7th to early 20th centuries at the Indian Subcontinent and in the Middle East.
