Can a Muslim also be a free thinker?

Can a Muslim also be a free thinker?

It depends on what you mean by “free thinker”. “Freethinker” usually means someone who rejects revelation; if that is the meaning used here then one cannot be a Muslim and a freethinker since the two would be contradictory. But if by it you simply mean being skeptical and believing strongly in reason and logic then that is not opposed to Islam.

And God knows best.
