The debate on the compatibility of Islam and democracy has dramatically intensified in the latest years, particularly after the 9/11 terrorist attacks. Among the innumerable contributions, this paper singles out those elaborated by a group of Muslim (at least by origin) scholars (Ahmad Moussalli, Abdulaziz Sachedina, Fatima Mernissi, Khaled Abou El Fadl, among others), writing in English in order to defend Islamic culture from other scholars’ allegations, and to demonstrate to the western colleagues and public opinion the resources Islam can display in order to build democratic systems. Their writings are examined in relation to four major issues often posed about Islam: the connection between religious and political spheres; the presence of concepts compatible with democracy in its political theory; the shariah and its interpretations; the human rights conception. The paper provides no conclusion, but the ascertainment of the advisability of taking more into account some precious ideas and concepts, elaborated by Islamic thinkers both in the past and today.
