The Onslaught of Misguidance: Philosophy and Science

Though the Muslim world has been substantially affected by this way of thinking, the remedy is at hand. The subject of this article is a momentous issue that affects all Muslims very deeply, and that has played a large part in causing the decline of Muslim civilisation, the weakness of Muslim peoples, and the political and intellectual fragmentation and disunity of the Muslim…

Mi’raj (Ascension) and the New Physics

The Dial Watch Issue in the Treatise of Mi’raj (Ascension): The Physics of Time and Space Though modern science keeps metaphysical phenomena out of its domain of research and indeed Islam does not necessarily need the endorsement of science to validate its principles, it is very interesting to observe that recent findings in modern physics give clues about the theoretical possibility of the Mi’raj of the Prophet (PBUH). While explaining the lofty aspects of the Mi’raj (the ascension of the Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) to the heavens) in his treatise on…

The Islamization of Knowledge

By Abdulhamid A. Abusulayman The Islamization of knowledge may be a way out of the epistemological borders of the West for Muslims to establish the authenticity of their civilization once again. It is hoped that an experimental project being conducted in Malaysia will yield good results for the fulfilment of the Islamization of knowledge. The Islamization of Knowledge is a project that concerns knowledge, learning, and education. It originated and developed in the minds and consciences of a group of Muslims who were aware of the spirit and cultural power…

Educational Reform Centring on Madrasatu’z-Zahra

The Madrasatu’z-Zahra project, if it can be achieved, may bring solutions to the separation of modern, spiritual and Islamic disciplines in educational institutions and it may contribute to the establishment of Islamic unity. The most important problem of Turkey and the Islamic world is our inability to give a sound, efficient and straightforward education to our children. The main factor behind most of the problems that we can imagine such as economic crisis, moral degeneration, terror, chaos in social life and disintegration of Islamic world is our shortcomings in education.…

Muslims in the History of Sciences

Many people think that Muslims did not play a role in the history of sciences. They suppose religion does not let man to improve in science; so in this case Islam was in no position to let the Muslims to contribute to the scientific works. These are what the schools have taught for decades even in Muslim countries. This fallacy has been collapsing for the last few years. There have been some initiatives and projects that raise awareness of scientific achievements of the Muslims from the 7th century onwards. While…

Role of Science in Belief

One of my articles in which I expressed my ideas on the psychological defence of atheists in the face of temporary nature of the life has offended some people who do not believe (http://www.thepenmagazine.net/the-unbelief-a-life-based-on-demagogy/). When I reread my article I realized that the language and style that I employed were really offensive to those who do not believe. Plus, it was very self-assured and in a manner that has solved all problems that we, human beings, have faced up. To me, the number one rule for a human being is…
