Department of Islam & Modern Sciences

Department of Islam & Modern Sciences

This Department introduces “Islam and Science”—which are inseparably connected and theoretically co-related—as an academic discipline. It primarily clarifies how science and its pursuit is greatly encouraged and repeatedly exhorted in the Holy Quran……

The “Department of Islam and Modern Science” at MLRC inspires students to ponder upon the Scientific Truths in light of the Holy Qur’an and other Islamic Scriptures, views of Islamic scholars and philosophers on science. It provides students with opportunities to augment the essential knowledge about various theories of science supported by the Qur’an.
The Department will enable the students to delve deeper into the works of great Muslim Scientists such as Ibn al-Haytham (known as Alhazen, the Arab mathematician referred to as "the father of modern optics"), Jabir ibn Hayyan (known as “father of the Chemistry”), Abu Bakr al-Razi (Persian physician, philosopher and alchemist), Ibn Sina (known as Avicenna in the West who was a Persian polymath), Ibn Rushd (known as Averroes, the Andalusian polymath), Al Farabi, Al Kindi and many more.
This Department seeks to revisit the Scientific Islamic Heritage; Muslim scientific laboratories, research academies and translation directories such as Baytul Hikmah (The House of Wisdom) built by the Abbasids and Dar al-Hikmah (The House of Knowledge) founded by the Fatimids. Scholars engaged in this Department will build knowledge repositories, drawing on Arabic, Indian, Greek and Persian texts on Ancient and Modern Science.
This Department is specifically designed and developed with the basic purpose to explore and expound the relationship that lies between the ‘Word of God’—Qur’an, and the ‘Work of God’— the Universe.
With the modern scientific methodologies, MLRC will open up new ways to understand the divine revelations of the Quran in accordance with the precise reflections of science.
A proportionate amalgamation of the ideas from Modern Science with Islamic Values will develop the MLRC students’ critical thinking, intellectual creativities and constructive capabilities.
