Significance of scientific methodology in analyzing religion

TEHRAN, Apr. 25 (MNA) – Head of the Johannesburg Islamic Center in South Africa, Seyyed Abdullah Hosseini emphasizes applying the wisdom or good advice provided by the Holy Scripture.

ONE MONTH
LIFE CHAINING 
ISLAMIC PHILOSOPHY COURSE
DURING RAMAZAN 2020

God as the creator of mankind has mentioned in the Quran that the road to the heart of mankind is first through Wisdom, followed by good advice.

Unfortunately, our present scholars are often not applying the wisdom or good advice provided by the Holy Scripture.  

As Coronavirus has given us the Tawfeeq of staying at home and plenty of time to ponder upon over destiny, this is the best opportunity to study more about Islam. 

My approach to Islam is from an intellectual point of view. Where we can prove the basic principles of Islam from a logical and philosophical perspective without referring to the Quran or Sunna. 

This scientific methodology will appeal more to our generation of thinkers. 

The strength of Islam is deep-rooted in the 14th century of intellectualism, pioneered by the Noble Prophet and continued by the great Muslim Philosophers like Farabi, Ibne Sina, Mullah Sadra, and Allama Tabatabai.

This course is not meant for those who don't want to apply intellect to religion. 

This course is meant to answer the 3 basic questions of all human beings.
 
Where I have come from.
Where I am.
Where I am heading.
