Reading this book without first understanding Al-Attas main framework of thought, is like having Vitamins and hoping for better health (unless you have a flu, and it is Vitamin D that you took).

A reference for future and current university on how to establish a TRUE Islamic University. This book shows how meticulous and visionary SMNA in establishing such University. ISTAC will forever be known as the Beacon on the crest on a hill.

“The Founder-Director purposely designed the building in a U-shape, in the interior of which is a courtyard with a central fountain, to reflect the introspective nature of a true Muslim, a universal and perfect man. These interior parts of the building are hidden from the outside in contrast to secularized buildings which face the road and are exposed to the busy traffic of secular life and are therefore without real privacy and introspective spirit.” 2 likes
