Dr. Majid Ali Khan
Modern society is rapidly changing due to scientific achievements and discoveries. Because of misunderstandings and bigotry there has been conflict between religion and science. The Holy Qur’an stimulates mankind to study the natural phenomena and contemplate Allah’s Divinity. Muslim scholars laid down the foundation of modern scientific and technological developments which, because of stagnation in Muslim activities, were appropriated by Western nations. The Western scientists did not recognise well the metaphysical and spiritual phenomena. Religion and sciences were thus allowed to exist as separate entities of knowledge. The Islamic approach recognises both the physical and metaphysical, the materialistic and the spiritual order of the universe and calls on mankind to pursue life in this togetherness as they interdepend upon one another for existence. It is this dichotomy which the author wishes to deal with in this book.
