Crisis Of Intelligence

Crisis Of Intelligence


From Istanbul, where Muslim scholars (ulama’), coming from all over the world, are meeting. The crisis of the Muslim intelligence is obvious and reveals itself during the debates, when the thought, vision and goals are lost and scattered for the sake of immediate responsiveness to political, social, cultural or legal issues.

Where is the scientific framework, where do we remember knowledge and understanding, how do we assert the imperative spiritual meaning, what are our higher objectives for Humanity (beyond the fragmented and isolated Muslim thought), what contributions do we offer and share?

We have an urgent need to reform the Muslim intelligence, vision and priorities. A crisis is the end of a cycle, some leave and others will come. A new generation must get education, understanding and get committed, in sha Allah.
