Fruits for the Week

Science is a strength that is able to strengthen a community. Muslims need to have the courage to develop the strength of science. Developments also have to be made to useful scientific thinking in the minds of every person in the community. If this can be done, it will bring back the glory days of Islamic civilization that prevailed before. Such are the thoughts of Sayyed Jamaluddin Al-Afghani.

The human being is created weak, hasty and having no self-control. Sins have been decreed for him the tendency for doing acts of obedience. Hence, Allah (swt) with His mercy opened for His servants the doors of repentance, especially during some hours of the night, and at the end of the day. The doors remain open until the sun rises from where it sets.

Abu Al-Walid Muhammad Ibn Rushd, or better known as Ibn Rushd or Averroes to the West, is a symbol of the migration of thought. He was an Islamic law expert and a philosopher. The combination of his expertise in these two fields is rather unique and it provoked inquiries because philosophy is seen as discussing theoretical and speculative matters while Islamic law is a practical field that discusses issues like the daily problems of people – among others. This uniqueness is what makes up – this Islamic thinker of the twelfth century AD, - Ibn Rushd. If Ibn Sina is regarded as a knowledgeable person of the Islamic civilization famous in the West, Ibn Rushd is famous in the West because he proved to be the bridge between Islamic civilization and the modern Western civilization.
