This article discusses the reformist thoughts of Sarfraz Khan as reflected in his ideas about revivalism, modernism and free will and are compared with the Egyptian exegetes’ thoughts of Muhammad Abduh and Muhammad Rashid Rida. Their thoughts are analysed comparatively in order to highlight differences and to measure the degree of their agreement with the established methods of prominent scholars. Two issues have been selected, i.e. Khan’s view of enabling other than Arabic language in observing the prayers, and the issue of predetermination. This study shows that reformist thoughts associated to Khan are in disagreement with Egyptian exegetes’ thoughts and those who are in line with them.
