Modern secular and mixed systems are takhsisiyyah too, marginalizing Islam and making it irrelevant by restricting it to mere rituals of the five pillars, family law, etc. Islam covers every discipline and all areas of the two cultures: Whoever does not judge by what God has revealed, they are wrong-doers evil-doers Rejectors ( zalimuun, fasiquun, kafiruun, Quran 5:47, 45, 44 ). Ijtihad is Islamic rationalism and modernization in the light of the Quran as exemplified by Prophet Muhammad. Islamization is a duty/fard; it is an urgent necessity since other systems have made Muslims incapable of promoting Islam, life, reason, posterity, wealth and honor (al-deen, hayaat, `aql, nasal, maal, `ird). Islamization assimilates the truths of all systems, incl. the modern secular. IISTD concentrates on Islamization of science and technology.Islamic ideology achieved some of its greatest triumphs during periods when Muslims were the weakest politically and militarily as in the 12th & 13th Centuries during the Crusades, and the 13th & 14th Centuries AD during the Mongol and Tatar invasions. However, the Mongols, Tatars and Turks, during genocide and destruction unparalleled in the history of mankind, embraced Islam and carried forward the mission of Islam. After centuries of internal decadence and well-deserved defeats and humiliations, Muslims are waking up to Islamize all knowledge, their three education systems ( traditionalist religious, secular, and mixed), and their two cultures. Islamization will empower Islam for Muslim self-development and Islamic propagation for universal common good ( al-maslahah al-kaffah ); it assimilates the truths in all systems.Islamization is a basic duty of every Muslim through the Prophet's tradition/Hadith, followed by the Early Generations but abandoned by later Muslims --- al-`ilm bit-ta`allum, Knowledge is by Self-Learning"; this must be pursued also through 'Continuous Self-Learning' Islamic discipline-oriented books and journals 'Islamic' full-time and week-end schools; Meetings; conferences; etc. Islamic organizations and professional associations must devise Islamization programs and promote their implementation world wide. Traditional 'Islamic' and Muslim "Mixed" education systems should be early models for total Islamization, as-silm al-kaffah. N. American and other countries also have Self-Learning (ta`allum) methods through Independent Study Courses, a Second Major or Minor, and new Courses on demand by students. Secular and "Mixed non-Muslim" education systems world wide must promote freedom of thought, ethnicity, multi-culturalism, and Arabic language. Such Courses and students research for Term Papers, and Masters and Ph.D. programs, must be used for Islamic and comparative studies in every discipline, involving also non-Muslims.May God Almighty bless our efforts.wassalam..Hina FarooqInternet Resource Executiveiistd_usa_query@...INSTITUTE OF ISLAMIC SCIENCES, TECHNOLOGY & DEVELOPMENT,California, USA - Hyderabad , India'Islamization of Knowledge'
