FREEDOMS AND RESTRAINTS IN ISLAM: HOW TO MAKE ISLAMIC CIVILIZATION GREAT AGAIN by Farooq Mirza

Contemporary Muslim societies are not known for their engagement in the modern scientific project, but they are heir to a legendary “Golden Age” of Arabic science, which roughly spans the eighth through the thirteenth centuries. The scholarly revival, in Baghdad, resulted in the translation of almost all the scientific works of the classical Greek writings into Arabic. Muslim thinkers made original contributions, both through writing and methodical experimentation, in such fields as philosophy, astronomy, medicine, chemistry, geography, physics, optics, and mathematics. Islam is not an obstacle to freedom, science, or economic development, as the Muslim societies in the past were a pioneer in all three. Islamic societies therefore need a renaissance to rediscover their rich heritage and evolve strategies to nurture freedom and pluralism. This Quran volume describes the concept of freedom and restraints in Islam and how these principles can be incorporated in contemporary Islamic societies.
