Whether they think of the evolutionary proofs of Darwin or of spectacular investigation into the boundaries of physics conducted by CERN's Large Hadron Collider, most people assume that scientific enquiry goes to the heart of fundamental truths about the universe. Yet elsewhere, science is under siege. In the USA, Christian fundamentalists contest whether evolution should be taught in schools at all.

President Obama, for instance, in his June 4, speech in Cairo , praised Muslims for their historical scientific and intellectual contributions to civilization:. It was innovation in Muslim communities that developed the order of algebra; our magnetic compass and tools of navigation; our mastery of pens and printing; our understanding of how disease spreads and how it can be healed.
Muslim scholars have developed a spectrum of viewpoints on science within the context of Islam. Scientists of medieval Muslim civilization e. Ibn al-Haytham contributed to the new discoveries of science. Aside from contributions by Muslims to mathematics , astronomy , medicine and natural philosophy , some have argued a very different connection between the religion of Islam and the discipline of science. Some Muslim writers have claimed that the Quran made prescient statements about scientific phenomena that were later confirmed by scientific research for instance as regards to the structure of the embryo, our solar system, and the creation of the universe.
The main purpose of this article is to provide an introductory discussion of one of several knowledge synthesis projects with which I have been engaged in the past one decade. A clarification of the term would help us to focus on the real issues that are raised by the title of this essay, since in current usage the term is found to connote several different meanings, and hence the possibility of confusion. To ascribe Islamicity to some sciences only as what this group has been doing, no matter how important these sciences may be to religion, but not to other sciences, would be contrary to the concept and philosophy of knowledge in Islam. Such a line of reasoning smacks of epistemic sectarianism that goes against the principle of unity of knowledge that is so much emphasised in Islamic epistemology. This division was conceived within the unitary epistemological perspective in which both categories of sciences were viewed as Islamic in the sense that they conformed to the most universal epistemological criteria of Islamicity. Such a division had spared mainstream classical Islamic thought of epistemic dichotomy between the humanities and the natural and the social sciences that was to characterise and indeed haunt modern Western thought.
