– the term “collective ijtihad”;

This methodology is based on a special type of reading of the revealed texts, whereby the reader is invited to search for the purposes presented in the Book of Allah and the Sunnah of His Prophet. Also, such reading is to be connected to other disciplines in order to come up with a composite perception of reality based on the primary sources of Islam, and the human acquired knowledge.
