A groundbreaking exposition of Islamic mysticism The Essence of Reality  was written over the course of just three days in 514/1120, by a scholar who was just twenty-four. The text, like its author ʿAyn al-Quḍāt, is remarkable for many reasons, not least of which that it is in all likelihood the earliest philosophical exposition of mysticism in the Islamic intellectual tradition. This important work would go on to exert significant influence on both classical Islamic philosophy and...

In the Islamic tradition, fiqh (Islamic law) is generally regarded as the science of furū'al-dīn (matters complementary to the Islamic faith), as opposed to kalām (Islamic theology) which is known as the science of uṣūl al-dīn (matters primary to the Islamic faith). Over time, however, fiqh has significantly surpassed Kalām in terms of cognitive maturation and epistemic development. In The Higher Objectives of Islamic Theology, Mohammed Gamal Abdelnour argues that far too little...

In this volume, an essential feature of Prophet Muḥammad’s message of God-centricity is propounded, namely the spirit of sincere inquiry and continual learning. This feature is quintessentially the definition of what it is to be human.

This thesis will examine how the Islamic concept of tawḥid (“monotheism”) was understood, and perhaps more importantly, experienced by the 12th/13th Sufi, Ibn ‘Arabi (1165-1240), also known as al-Shaykh al-Akbar (“The Greatest Master”). It has been argued that tawḥid is not simply a belief but also an operation, that is to say, a continual process whereby the literal meaning of tawḥid (“asserting oneness”) is upheld. This understanding of tawḥid implies a certain dualism...

The endeavour to prove God’s existence through rational argumentation was an integral part of classical Islamic theology (kalām) and philosophy (falsafa), thus the frequently articulated assumption in the academic literature. The Islamic discourse in question is then often compared to the discourse on arguments for God’s existence in the western tradition, not only in terms of its objectives but also in terms of the arguments used: Islamic thinkers, too, put forward arguments that have...

A bold new conceptualization of Islam that reflects its contradictions and rich diversity What is Islam? How do we grasp a human and historical phenomenon characterized by such variety and contradiction? What is "Islamic" about Islamic philosophy or Islamic art? Should we speak of Islam or of islams? Should we distinguish the Islamic (the religious) from the Islamicate (the cultural)? Or should we abandon "Islamic" altogether as an analytical term? In What Is Islam?, Shahab...

To justify its horrible crimes and appeal to Muslims around the world, ISIS has based its ideology on a superficial and literalist approach to the Sacred Texts of Islam - the Holy Qur'an and the Prophetic Tradition. ISIS manipulates religion to recruit angry young Muslims, who have little knowledge of Islamic theology and jurisprudence. Therefore, the Muslim scholars are obliged to respond with a counter-narrative that elucidates the true teachings of Islam and its commitment to tolerance....

1. Islam: A Comprehensive Introduction (Urdu title: Meezan) is an extensive study of the contents of Islam by the author. It is an effort which spans almost two decades of both creative and critical thinking. The entire endeavour is a fresh interpretation of Islam from its original sources. In his own opinion, the reason that he has undertaken it is that interpretation of sacred texts is a human endeavour and since this can never remain fault free, the process should never discontinue.

Ramon Harvey revisits the Muslim theologian Abū Manṣūr al-Māturīdī (d. 333/944) from Samarqand and puts his system, and that of the Māturīdī school, into lively dialogue with modern thought. Combining rigorous study of Arabic Māturīdī texts with insights from Husserl’s phenomenology and analytic theology, Harvey explores themes from epistemology and metaphysics to the nature of God and specific divine attributes (omniscience and wisdom, creative action, divine speech and the...

The Qur‘an is a book which emphasizes ‘deed‘ rather than ‘idea‘. There are, however, men to whom it is not possible organically to assimilate an alien universe by re-living, as a vital process, that special type of inner experience on which religious faith ultimately rests. Moreover, the modern man, by developing habits of concrete thought - habits which Islam itself fostered at least in the earlier stages of its cultural career - has rendered himself less capable of that experience...

Philosophy or `Rubbaniyat' is a revolutionary philosophy. Its revolutionary urge is so potential that by a single drive it radically alters the very basis of traditional philosophical thinking and the science of Religion. It is so grand and sublime that the highest idealism of the ancient world and the modern philosophy of materialism dare not compare with it. Standing firmly on the solid rock-bed of the philosophy of `Rubbaniyat', as it does, `The Creed of Islam' shines like a bright star in...

Behind 'Abd al-Kader's role of brilliant warrior lay another, that of spiritual master in the direct lineage of Ibn 'Arabi, the Shaikh al-Akbar (the greatest shaikh). The thirty-nine texts translated here were chosen because they represent the major themes of the teaching of 'Abd al-Kader. Many are commentaries on passages from the writings of Ibn 'Arabi. They offer a rare opportunity to share the illumination of a master writing from his own direct experience.

It establishes evidence of al-Maturidi's profound influence upon Islamic theology during his time and discusses his method, theory of knowledge and theological ideas concerning the world, and the relation of God to man.

Abstract  Some of the attributes of a perfect being (e.g. first cause, necessary being, intelligent creator) are established on the basis of theological arguments such as the cosmological and the teleological. At the deepest level, these theological arguments are based on principles of rational psychology such as simplicity and sufficient reason. Moreover, belief that the perfect being is the moral omnipotent God is an act of trust and thus based on the rational psychology of trust. Theists in...

Can the seeker after Truth wholly depend on the guidance found in books on Sufism or are the oral teachings of a spiritual master necessary? This was a heated debate in fourteenth-century Andalusia that extended beyond the confines of Sufi circles. Ibn Khaldun ventured into this debate with a treatise that is as relevant today as it was then.  Ibn Khaldun on Sufism: Remedy for the Questioner in Search of Answers  is the first ever translation into English of  Shifa' al-Sa'il li-Tahdhib...

The book itself deals with the philosophy of the brilliant but virtually unknown Islamic thinker, Ibn Tufayl (1100-1184) who lived in Spain. The substance of the book involves Professor Hawi's able exposition of this philosopher's point of view as found in his employment of the romantic tale: Hayy Bin Yaqzan. For, in a way reminiscent of Plato, Tufayl used this strange tale to present the various stages of his own personal philosophical development. This development, in fact, involves three...

Allah  has obligated us to know that Islam is true. Knowledge however, is distinguished from false belief by virtue of evidence. For simple claims to truth are no better than others, if those claims are not well grounded in reason. It is therefore necessary to not only claim that Islam is true, but to also prove it to be so. The discipline dedicated to fulfilling this task is called ‘ilm al-Kalam.  “Al-Kharida al-Bahia” (the Glimmering Pearl) is an introductory text for students of...
