In Knowledge Triumphant, Franz Rosenthal observes that the Islamic civilisation is one that is essentially characterised by knowledge ('ilm), for 'ilm is one of those concepts that have dominated Islam and given Muslim civilisation its distinctive shape and complexion.' There is no branch of Muslim intellectual and daily life that remained untouched by the all-pervasive attitude towards 'knowledge' as something of supreme value for Muslim being.
