Muhammad Ahmad Khalafallah (Arabic: محمد أحمد خلف الله‎, 1916-1991) was an Egyptian Islamic modernist thinker and writer.[1][2]

In 1947, Cairo University refused his doctoral dissertation presented to the Department of Arabic entitled The Narrative Art in the Holy Qur'an, as he suggested that holy texts are allegoric and that they should not be seen as something fixed, but as a moral direction.[3] He was fired from his teaching position and transferred to the Ministry of Culture.[3]

Afterwards, he started a thesis on a non-religious subject and received his doctorate in 1952. He ended his career at the Egyptian Ministry of Culture.[3][1]
