Professor Ismail al Faruqi (1921-1986) was a trailblazer of what he called Islamics or Islamic Studies in the modern age with a special focus on the study of Islam from the perspective of phenomenology and history of religions and inter-religious dialogue. He is also well known in the Muslim world for his theory of Islamization of knowledge, which is only one of his many intellectual contributions to the relationship between Islam and knowledge.


This book is an introduction to Professor Ismail al Faruqi’s scholarly views, excerpted from his famous writings, concerning topics such as the pre-Hijrah sources of Islam, religious interdependence, religio naturalis and metareligion.
