Research
His long term intellectual and pragmatic work lies in the realization of the Islamic
Interests
Worldview in the arts, sciences and technologies, and involvement in community-based
intellectual and socioeconomic self-empowerment, intercultural dialogue and the
reharmonization of man and his natural environment.
Specifically, his research interests are in the history and philosophy of Islamic and Western
Science, and conceptual and pragmatic issues pertaining to the Islamization of the
sciences, and the revivification of Islamic Science and Technology as a systemic empirical
research program in the contemporary world.
Current research focus: kalam physical theories; symbiosis between science and fiqh,
Islamic Science as a long term scientific research program.

socio-natural environment, through, among others, the creation of varsity nature/eco-educational parks,
varsity students’ involvement in the creation of urban community nature parks in collaboration with the
relevant extra-varsity stake-holders, integrative and proactive recycling initiatives, and impartation of relevant
hands-on skills relevant to their post-varsity professional life, especially with regard to any work or project
requiring personal experienced input for responsible social and environmental impact assessments (SIAs and
EIAs). CEEPUS is still at the initial conceptual stage and so the funding and operational mechanisms have yet to
