When Demand Exceeds Supply(Poster)

  1. 1. “ WHEN DEMAND EXCEEDS SUPPLY… ” SEEKING FOR MORE MUSLIM SCHOLARS-THINKERS-PHILOSOPHERS SPEAKER: USTAZ ZHULKEFLEE HJ ISMAIL Organize by MASJID KASSIM , #02-01 Wisma Indah, Changi Rd. SINGAPORE EVERYONE IS INVITED TO A LECTURE IN ENGLISH FREE ADMISSION Saturday: 15 August 2009 24 Sha`baan 1430 A.H. @ 10.30 a.m. – 12.00 noon
  2. 2. Actual theme of my presentation A POINT OF VIEW: “TRADITIONAL AND CONTEMPORARY ISLAMIC SCHOLARSHIP” A BRIEF PRELIMINARY REFLECTION
  3. 3. <ul><li>I was asked: “Is it still possible for Muslims to strive to become Islamic scholars in the likes of the such illustrious, eclectic, profound Ulama’ – (scholar / thinker / philosopher) like e.g. Al-Ghazzali, Ibn Rushd, Al-Biruni, Ibn Khaldun, Ibn Sinna etc. ?” </li></ul><ul><li>Actually this concern was already raised by many, especially since the dismantling of the last Ottoman Caliphate. The waning influence of the Muslims and their being colonized and exposed to imperialists’ rule had indeed drastically changed our approach to education. </li></ul>WHY THIS TOPIC?
  4. 4. WHY THIS TOPIC? <ul><li>In Feb 1998, while in PERGAS , I responded to criticism upon the Madrasah by writing a paper from my research (copy available on my web link “http:// An-naseehah.blogspot.com ” ). </li></ul><ul><li>In that paper, I’ve argued that the current “ Madrasah education” (although it has the potential to be Islamic), yet it is not necessarily equal to what a truly “ Islamic education ” really is. </li></ul><ul><li>In fact, the Muslims have, since colonial times, moved from a single wholistic system of education ( Tauhidic ) into adopting a dualistic system - dichotomising the religious from the secular. </li></ul>

WILL BE FURTHER DELIBERATED IN THIS LECTURE
