"As Professor Fazlur Rahman shows in the latest of a series of important contributions to Islamic intellectual history, the characteristic problems of the Muslim modernists—the adaptation to the needs of the contemporary situation of a holy book which draws its specific examples from the conditions of the seventh century and earlier—are by no means new. . . . In Professor ...more

Fazlur Rahman is my new hero.

يقدم الكتاب اطروحة منهجية تاريخية في استعراض تطور الفكر التربوي لدى المسلمين في مواجهة سؤال التحديث , إذ بدى ان الإسلام برؤيته التقليدية لدى معظم المدارس الاسلامية في بداية العصر الكولينالي يدور في فلك لا يمت بصلة إلى الحداثة ومشروعها العلماني .. ويحاول الكاتب ان يرصد محاولات الجمع بين الرؤيتين وتحويلهما الى مشروع مدرسي تربوي .. في تركيا والهند واندونيسيا والباكستان ومصر والعالم العربي .. وفي الكتابات عدة اشارات مفيدة , كما ان المدخل الذي تحدث فيه المؤلف عن تحول الاسلام النبوي الى الاسلام المدرس ...more

Discussions regarding the preservation of differing social, cultural and religious traditions in the face of rapid technological expansion and globalisation have a long and complex history in Islamic scholarship. Arguably one of the most original and influential twentieth-century scholars of Islam who endeavoured to clarify this seemingly intractable problem was Fazlur Rahman. Patently familiar with the rich intellectual history of both medieval and modern Islam, Rahman’s intellectual enquiry wa ...more

The author in his work Islam and modernity, states about the islamization of education.It refers to main goals; Firstly to spread the light of Islamic values in the character of students, Secondly to achieve the learning in the respective fields through the medium of modern education.
But unfortunately the Islamic education is given at the primary and minute level only and higher fields of learning are alienated from the interpretation and intellectual work done on Quran.,the author called pious

Guru Besar yang "tidak dianggap" di negaranya sendiri, namun meraih ketenarannya di Amerika ini boleh dibilang luar biasa. Dianggap sebagai guru-nya para liberalis -yang di Indonesia telah menelurkan tokoh semacam Cak Nur, Syafii Maarif, dan Amien Rais dengan beragam karakter mereka.

Pemikirannya, terlepas dari berbagai kontroversi dan hujatan dari berbagai pihak, patut dicermati. Awalnya, saya tak boleh menyentuh bukunya. Tapi, sekali saya dilarang, semakin saya ingin membacanya.

Bagus kok!

...las formas actuales de fundamentalismo Islámico no deben ser entendidas como un retorno a formas sociales y valores pasados, ni siquiera desde la perspectiva de sus practicantes. Según Fazlur Rahman: “Actualmente es algo así como una confusión llamar „fundamentalistas‟ a dichos fenómenos del Islam, salvo porque enfatizan al Islam como la base de las dos fuentes: el Qur‟an y el Sunna del Profeta Muhammed. Por otra parte, enfatizan al ijtihad, el pensamiento original”.

الكتاب يبحث في قضية التجديد في سياق التربية أو اسلامية المعرفة ويتناول الجهود الاصلاحية والتغريبية التي قامت في باكستان وتركيا وايران ومصر ويقارن بين النماذج.
الكتاب قديم وبعض افكاره اصبحت في عداد الماضي

“If metaphysics enjoys the least freedom from assumed premises, man enjoys the least freedom from metaphysics in that metaphysical beliefs are the most ultimate and pervasively relevant to human attitudes; it is consciously or unconsciously the source of all values and of the meaning we attach to life itself.” 1 likes
“Metaphysics, in my understanding, is the unity of knowledge and the meaning and orientation this unity gives to life. If this unity is the unity of knowledge, how can it be all that subjective? It is a faith grounded in knowledge.” 1 likes
