Islamic Sciences: Ethics, Law, Education, Economics, politics, Sociology, and Systems Planning. This book is an introduction to certain Islamic “sciences” (ideology): epistemology, education, jurisprudence, ethics and law, politics, economics, philosophy and history of science, and sociology of culture and development. These disciplines are applied in “Islamic systems planning” particularly the engineering. The basic sources are the Quran which is used extensively, selected Traditions (Sunnah, Hadith) of Prophet Muhammad, the legacy of Islamic thought from the earliest to modern times, and contemporary “rational” (‘aaliyah, or secularized) knowledge of the social and natural sciences and engineering. This is a modern pioneering work on the principles and methodology of Islamization of all knowledge, i.e., the Islamization of the contemporary ideological and technological cultures, through use of the above “sources” and modern ijtihad (Islamic expert opinion). This illustrates the Quranic principle of “integration” (tawhid), exemplified by Prophet Muhammad, through use of revelation (wahy) and reason (‘aql), and imitation (taqlid) and “good” innovation (bid’ah hasanah).
