Rashid Rida (d. 1935) was, in effect, the spokesperson for the modern Salafi movement. On the topic of salvation, Rida builds on the writings of his predecessors, and submits that God will deliver righteous non-Muslims. Rida also favors the view that all of humanity will one day be saved. This chapter highlights Rida’s arguments for inclusivism and universalism, and also surveys the writings of various modern scholars, such as the exclusivist proclamations of Sayyid Qutb (d. 1966); the arguments for pluralism offered by Farid Esack, Reza Shah-Kazemi, Fazlur Rahman (d. 1988), Abdulaziz Sachedina, Mahmoud Ayoub, and others; and counterarguments by inclusivists, particularly Muhammad (Gary) Legenhausen and Tim Winter (Abdal Hakim Murad). The chapter concludes with “Closing Thoughts.” Rashid Rida (or: Muhammad Rashid Rida, Rasheed Rida).
