Muslim `religious' education and their `two cultures', ideological
and technological, through their curricula and anti-worldism, became
in recent centuries increasingly takhsisiyyah (reductionist,
restricted). `Modern' secular and `mixed' systems are also
takhsisiyyah. They all marginalize Islam, making Islam 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': " And 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 and the `two cultures'. Islamization
of `modern' takhsisiyyah systems --- traditionalist religious,
secular, and `mixed' --- will empower Islam for Muslim self-
development and Islamic propagation for universal common good ( al-
maslahah al-kaffah ). Islamization includes assimilating the truths
in all systems.
Secular education systems are well suited for Islamization; they
basically apply the Hadith, followed by the Sahabah and Early
Generations but abandoned by later Muslims --- al-`ilm bit-
ta`allum, "Knowledge is by Self-Learning". They promote freedom of
thought, ethnicity, multi-culturalism, and Arabic language. Their
structure applies the ta`allum/Self-Learning methods such as in North
America through Independent Study Courses, a Second Major or Minor,
and new Courses on demand by students. Such Courses and students'
research for Term Papers, and Master's and Ph.D. programs, must be
used for Islamic and Islamic-comparative studies in every discipline.
This promotes Islam among non-Muslims too. Islamic full-time and week-
end schools, and Muslim `mixed' education systems, should be the
early models for `total Islamization', as-silm al-kaffah. We must
pursue Continuous Self-Learning through `Islamic discipline-
oriented' books and journals too. Meetings and conferences of
Islamic organizations and professional associations must devise
Islamization programs and promote their implementation world wide.

Modern secular and mixed systems also marginalize Islam, making it irrelevant in mankinds quest for the best in the two worlds. Islam does and must cover every discipline and all areas of the two cultures, ideological and technological. Whoever does not judge by what God has revealed, they are wrong-doers evil-doers Rejectors/non-Muslims ( zalimuun, fasiquun, kafiruun, Quran 5:47, 45, 44 ). Ijtihad is Islamic rationalism and modernization in the light of the Quran and the good example presented in the Sayings and Life of Prophet Muhammad and the Early Centuries in the al-Kharaj and al-Amwal books. Islamization is a duty/fard and an urgent necessity for universal welfare (al-maslahah al-kaffah) since the existing systems have made Muslims incapable of promoting Islam, life, reason, posterity, wealth and honor (al-deen, hayaat, `aql, nasal, maal, `ird). Islam is din al-haq, the system of truth. Hence Islamization assimilates the truths of all systems, including the secular which is, historically and in modern times, partial Islamization.The methodology for Islamization must be based on the Prophets Saying, al-`ilm bit-ta`allum, Knowledge is by Self-Learning". Muslims must pursue it through parallel Self-Studies of Islamic discipline-oriented books and journals, and gradually institutionalize it in all schools and universities through Independent Study Courses, a Second Major or Minor, and new Courses on demand by students. Traditional 'Islamic' and Muslim "mixed" education systems should be early models for total Islamization, as-silm al-kaffah. Muslims must promote and utilize the secular and mixed education systems world wide, in cooperation with non-Muslims, through freedom of thought, ethnicity, multi-culturalism, and Quranic Arabic language. Such Courses and students research for Term Papers, and Masters and Ph.D. programs, must be used for Islamic and assimilative studies in every discipline.May God Almighty bless our efforts.Wassalam/And Peace be with youInternet Resource Executiveiistd_usa_query@...INSTITUTE OF ISLAMIC SCIENCES, TECHNOLOGY & DEVELOPMENT,California, USA - Hyderabad , Indiawww.islamicscience.org, www.islamicsciencesbooks.com'Islamization of Knowledge'
