Developing an Islamic world view: An essential component of an Islamic education
AbstractA traditional Islamic education develops an Islamic outlook to life but does not prepare the student assimilate developments over the past three or four centuries, in particular Western knowledge. A modern Western education inevitably entails absorption of a secular worldview built into the framework of Western sciences. For Muslims, the need of the hour is to develop an Islamic approach to understanding recent history and developments in Western physical and social sciences. Many have attempted the “Islamization of Knowledge,” but have failed to address a central need for this project, namely the development of an Islamic worldview. This paper outlines the necessary requirements.
