Probably among the most debated topics at present concerns the relationship between religion and science. Until recently, a clear-cut distinction was often drawn between these two realms, with an increasing preference being given to science over religion while the prevailing ideology of modernism went along on its course. But now, as with many aspects of our life and civilization, ideological attitudes seem to be undergoing a reexamination in the light of the dramatic changes that have already happened or seem to impend, many of which are directly traceable to science and technology.
Of what importance and meaning do such facts have for Islam and Muslims today? How are we directly or indirectly affected by these ideological trends? How might we be negatively impacted by not understanding the reality within which we live and the changes that are happening in the world today? Are there ways we can insulate ourselves from the onslaught of negative hegemonic philosophies and how much have we as a historical community already been influenced by them? Dr Khalid Yahya Blankinship provides some fascinating insights with a unique Islamic perspective on these questions and more.
