Islam, Science And Health Matters – Welcome to Islam
Is Islam opposed to knowledge and Science?
Islam is not opposed to knowledge and science. Knowledge is of two types: religious, which has to do with understanding of the religious duties one is required to carry out, and worldly, which has to do with all that is needed to know with a view to living a comfortable and beneficial life. A Muslim is required to acquire both types of knowledge. In fact, Islam advocated attaining
knowledge and education at a time when the whole world was surrounded with darkness and steeped in utter ignorance. The first revelation the Glorious Prophet of Islam (صَلَّى الـلّٰـهُ تَعَالٰى عَلَيْهِ وَاٰلِهٖ وَسَلَّم) received from Almighty Allah عَزَّوَجَلَّ was:
اِقۡـرَاۡ بِاسۡمِ رَبِّکَ الَّذِیۡ خَلَقَ ۚ﴿۱﴾ خَلَقَ الۡاِنۡسَانَ مِنۡ عَـلَقٍ ۚ﴿۲﴾ اِقۡرَاۡ وَ رَبُّکَ الۡاَکۡرَمُ ۙ﴿۳﴾ الَّذِیۡ عَـلَّمَ بِا لۡقَلَمِ ۙ﴿۴﴾ عَـلَّمَ الۡاِنۡسَانَ مَا لَمۡ یَعۡلَمۡ ؕ﴿۵﴾
Read with the name of your Lord Who created. Created man from a clot. Read, and your Lord only is the Most Beneficent, The One Who taught to write with the pen. The One Who taught man all what he did not know. [A’laq 96:1-5].
These verses represent the first spark ever to dispel the darkness of ignorance and barbarianism in which the world had long been engrossed in.
The early generation of Muslims became, in a matter of years, a learned and refined nation in religious as well as worldly matters, after having remained in the darkness of ignorance for centuries. Islam awakened in man the faculty of intellect and motivated him to serve Allah عَزَّوَجَلَّ, the one true God. . Read More
