The aim of this book is to highlight the effect of secularism on Islam particularly its repercussions that beset Muslims nowadays. The author began in giving emphasis on the religion Christianity.
From the book itself, I have learned that secularism stemmed from the nature of Christianity. It is imperative to point out that christianity is a mixture of conflicting concepts. History tells us that Christian doctrines or beliefs are from gospel which is taken from the original message of Prophet Jes

Al Attas with his non-structural style of writing takes his readers to an enlightening mind opener of the presence of secularism in the world and its threat to Islam. Al Attas described secularism in three aspects: 1. disenchantment of nature, 2. desacralization of politics, 3. deconsecration of values (giving temporary meanings to objects)
Secularism is the final goal of secularization. The latter is described as the process, while secularism can also be regarded as an idealism. Islam opposes se

Buku ini dengan jelas menerangkan perbezaan antara pandangan alam dunia Barat dan Islam. Sekularisme yang berbelit-belit falsafahnya begitu mengelirukan apabila penulis memberi penerangan dalam bab yang pertama. Sekularisme yang memisahkan roh dan jasmani secara tidak langsung melahirkan fahaman materialisme, iaitu fahaman yang mementingkan kebendaan semata-mata. Rentetan itu terjadilah pembangunan yang melampau, kosong dari roh sehingga memusnahkan alam. Benarlah firman Allah bahawa kerosakan d ...more

كتاب عميق يستحق القراءة يضع المشاكل التي ادت بالاسلام الى ما نحن عليه اليوم ويلخص المشكلة ب"انعدام اﻷدب" ويعطي المعاني للمفاهيم بجيث يسهل على القارئ استيعابها
ولا يكتفي بطرح المشكلة وانما يطرح الحلول ايضا
نظرته للتصوف جميلة ومنطقية

The first two chapters betray the originality of his thinking, especially on the concept of secularism. The rest of the chapters fails to complement this build-up. But a must read for serious readers of Islam nonetheless.

Pembahasan mendasar yang mungkin akan merekounstruksi struktur berpikir kita yang selama ini seringkali terdistorisi oleh nilai-nilai selain Islam. Karena Islam memang lebih dari 'sekadar' keyakinan, tetapi juga pandangan alam (worldview). Pembahasan Al-Attas tentang konsep-konsep kunci seperti Din (Agama), Manusia, Ilmu, dan Pendidikan mungkin akan membuat anda memandang dunia dengan cara yang berbeda.

Buku ini adalah salah satu titik tolak dari proyek besar Islamisasi Ilmu Pengetahuan. Sebuah p

Excellent read. Starts out strong, continues strong until about halfway then it kinda petters off. Great points on the criticism of secularism in the middle and Christianity in the beginning. Great etymological discussion of adab and madina. The graphs were kind odd and I wonder if al-Attas likes to play darts because of that. The end on Islam in the Malay archipelago was fascinating in examining a culture and its amicability and history with Islam. I wish something similar could be applied to o ...more

karya yg renyah sangat bernas, karena al Attas faham kondisi Barat pun faham pula kondisi Islam..
Mufti Ghaffar
mari kita hapuskan sekularisme, salah satunya dengan mengenalnya.
kenali sekularisme dan bagaimana Islam menangkalnya.

catatan kasar

ada dibincangkan tentang teori esensi dan eksistensi, baru faham rupanya teori ini dikaitkan dengan kewujudan tuhan yakni Allah.
Achmad Basyaiban
Salah satu buku yang lengkap dan tegas dalam menyikapi sekularisme, tanpa meninggalkan identitas sebagai seorang muslim yang hanif.
Nazifah
learn how Prof Al-Attas explain the meaning of the word "DEEN" in Qur'an.very important!

“Ibarat manusia tanpa keperibadian, universiti moden tidak mempunyai pusat yang sangat penting dan tetap, tidak ada prinsip-prinsip utama yang tetap, yang menjelaskan tujuan akhirnya. Ia tetap menganggap dirinya memikirkan hal-hal universal dan bahkan menyatakan memiliki fakulti dan jurusan sebagaimana layaknya tubuh suatu organ - tetapi ia tidak memiliki otak, jangan akal (intellect) dan jiwa, kecuali oleh dalam suatu fungsi pengurusan murni untuk pemeliharaan dan perkembangan jasmani. Perkembangannya tidak dibimbing oleh suatu prinsip yang akhir dan tujuan yang jelas, kecuali oleh prinsip nisbi yang mendorong mengejar ilmu tanpa henti dan tujuan yang jelas.” 23 likes
“Definisi epistemologis yang paling tepat untuk ilmu, dengan Allah Subhanallahu wa Ta'ala sebagai sumbernya, ialah tibanya (husul) makna (ma'na) sesuatu benda atau objek ilmu ke dalam jiwa. Dengan memandang jiwa sebagai penafsir maka ilmu adalah tibanya (wusul) diri (jiwa) kepada makna sesuatu hal atau suatu objek ilmu.” 14 likes
