Towards Islamization of Knowledge and Reform of Islamic Thought
Report on IIIT's Intellectual Panels at the ISNA 2014 Convention

Imam Zayd Shakir and PanelThe first session of the IIIT Intellectual Panels at this year’s 51st annual ISNA convention, titled Reform of Education, was led by Dr. Abubaker Al-Shingieti’s introductory remarks on the need for reform in light of the difficult realities facing educational institutions in the Muslim world. The first speaker, Dr. Ebrahim Moosa, provided passionate provocations that challenged Islamic institutions to move beyond the anxiety and fear of exploring secular sources of knowledge. In his view, a hyper-cautions fixation on questions of the ‘Islamic’ paradigm and methodology has kept such institutions from making mistakes and engaging in the innovative experimentation required to achieve the desired level of excellence (ihsan).
