Seyyed Hossein Nasr on Islamisation of knowledge

  • Yahaya Musa Yusuf


Islamization of knowledge is an intellectual and methodological enterprise and not an ideology,, a discipline,, or a sect.. Islamization of knowledge is a methodology for dealing with knowledge and its sources.. It is an attempt to fashion out an Islamic paradigm of knowledge based on the Islamic world view and its unique constitutive concepts and factors.. This is because the knowledge as conceived in the West is value laden and has detached itself from tawhid (uunity and sovereignty of Allah,, SWT)).. The rationalistic thought in the West has reduced both the objective and sub jective poles of knowledge to a single level devoid of the divine.. These scholars deliberately distort Islam to suit their own ends and the loss of sacred has created a vacuum in human life..
