AbdulHamid AbuSulayman lecture series and textbooks on Islamisation of knowledge

By Alya Nadiah 

GOMBAK, 21 January 2018 – International Islamic University Malaysia (IIUM) has a mission to promote the concept of Islamisation of human knowledge through teaching, research and consultancy work in its dissemination of knowledge towards achieving academic excellence, its Rector, Prof. Dato’ Sri Dr. Zaleha Kamarudin said recently.

Launching the AbdulHamid AbuSulayman lecture series and 10 IIUM-IIIT (International Institute of Islamic Thought) textbooks at the Senate Hall on Friday (19 January), Prof. Dr. Zaleha said, “The IIUM constitution enshrines the vision of the Islamisation of human knowledge although some may not believe in it.”

“Sometimes we see books from the Western world without giving any Islamic perspective. Textbooks at various levels of our education system are produced by authors who do not necessarily share our worldview, values or way of life.”

Professor Dr. Zaleha said, “I would like to congratulate the authors of the three kulliyyah, eight authors from IRK, one author from KICT and another one author from KENMS making it 10 books, and I thanked them sincerely for their contribution to knowledge production.”

Organised by the office of Deputy Rector (Research and Innovation), Kulliyyah of Islamic Revealed Knowledge and Human Sciences (KIRKHS) and the IIIT, the launching ceremony was held to promote the concept of Islamisation in those books which would further enhance teaching and knowledge dissemination among IIUM community.

The ceremony began with singing of national anthem followed by Quranic recitation by Al- Qari Al-Sheikh Muhammad Asfandyar Dilawar Khan.

Also present at the ceremony was the Deputy Rector (Research and Innovation), Prof. Dr. Rahmah Ahmad H. Osman and the Director and Regional Representative for International Institute for Islamic Thought, (IIIT East and South East Asia), Professor Emeritus Dato’ Wira Dr. Jamil Osman.

Earlier in her opening remarks, Prof. Dr. Rahmah Ahmad H. Osman said, “We are delighted to witness the beautiful results of sleepless nights through dedication and strong determination of many individuals from IIUM and IIIT.”

“I would like to congratulate all authors and editors of these books and IIIT who have demonstrated an admirable level of productivity as evidence by the books that are to be launched today.”

“These textbooks actualise the integration of Islamic and acquired human knowledge accordingly, in addition to enhancing and strengthening the Islamisation and integration mission of IIUM. I am also delighted to announce that IIIT has agreed to sponsor a new writing project for another 40 textbooks for courses taught at our university,” she added.

According to Prof. Dr. Rahmah these books were published with the objective to promote more of the Islamic perspective and values among university students. “Compared to the current textbooks that were written by western authors promoting western philosophies, the new textbooks would encourage students to learn their subjects based on major Islamic values from the textbooks,” she said.

The 10 books were designed for university level courses for all IIUM students.

IIIT has been IIUM’s trusted and strategic partner since the university’s establishment. “I am also grateful for the monetary assistance that has been offered by IIIT in the form of sponsored research grants to assist IIUM staffs in the writing process of these books,” Dr. Rahmah said.

“IIUM community is honoured to launch the AbdulHamid AbuSulayman lectures series today. Professor Emeritus Dr. AbdulHamid AbuSulayman played the fundamental role in shaping the vision and mission of our university. He played an important role in the success of this project by monitoring and supervising each of the office from the very beginning and guided us step by step starting from the first stage of the formation of ideas and concepts until completion.”

A lecture presentation was later held on the topic “Islamisation of Knowledge: From Concept to Textbook” by Prof. Dr. Omar H. Kasule, the Secretary-General of IIIT, who was also Professor of Medical Ethics at King Fahd Medical University, and Advisor to the Ministry of Health, Kingdom of Saudi Arabia. ***

  17. I’ll gear this review to 2 types of people: current Zune owners who are considering an upgrade, and people trying to decide between a Zune and an iPod. (There are other players worth considering out there, like the Sony Walkman X, but I hope this gives you enough info to make an informed decision of the Zune vs players other than the iPod line as well.)

  18. Have you ever considered publishing an e-book or guest authoring
    on other websites? I have a blog centered on the same subjects you discuss and would love to have you share some stories/information. I know my readers would enjoy your work.
    If you are even remotely interested, feel free to send me an e mail.

  19. The Zune concentrates on being a Portable Media Player. Not a web browser. Not a game machine. Maybe in the future it’ll do even better in those areas, but for now it’s a fantastic way to organize and listen to your music and videos, and is without peer in that regard. The iPod’s strengths are its web browsing and apps. If those sound more compelling, perhaps it is your best choice.

  20. This is getting a bit more subjective, but I much prefer the Zune Marketplace. The interface is colorful, has more flair, and some cool features like ‘Mixview’ that let you quickly see related albums, songs, or other users related to what you’re listening to. Clicking on one of those will center on that item, and another set of “neighbors” will come into view, allowing you to navigate around exploring by similar artists, songs, or users. Speaking of users, the Zune “Social” is also great fun, letting you find others with shared tastes and becoming friends with them. You then can listen to a playlist created based on an amalgamation of what all your friends are listening to, which is also enjoyable. Those concerned with privacy will be relieved to know you can prevent the public from seeing your personal listening habits if you so choose.

  21. If you’re still on the fence: grab your favorite earphones, head down to a Best Buy and ask to plug them into a Zune then an iPod and see which one sounds better to you, and which interface makes you smile more. Then you’ll know which is right for you.

  22. Sorry for the huge review, but I’m really loving the new Zune, and hope this, as well as the excellent reviews some other people have written, will help you decide if it’s the right choice for you.

  24. Apple now has Rhapsody as an app, which is a great start, but it is currently hampered by the inability to store locally on your iPod, and has a dismal 64kbps bit rate. If this changes, then it will somewhat negate this advantage for the Zune, but the 10 songs per month will still be a big plus in Zune Pass’ favor.

  25. Hands down, Apple’s app store wins by a mile. It’s a huge selection of all sorts of apps vs a rather sad selection of a handful for Zune. Microsoft has plans, especially in the realm of games, but I’m not sure I’d want to bet on the future if this aspect is important to you. The iPod is a much better choice in that case.

  29. Zune and iPod: Most people compare the Zune to the Touch, but after seeing how slim and surprisingly small and light it is, I consider it to be a rather unique hybrid that combines qualities of both the Touch and the Nano. It’s very colorful and lovely OLED screen is slightly smaller than the touch screen, but the player itself feels quite a bit smaller and lighter. It weighs about 2/3 as much, and is noticeably smaller in width and height, while being just a hair thicker.

  30. This design is wicked! You obviously know how to keep a reader amused.
    Between your wit and your videos, I was almost moved to start my
    own blog (well, almost…HaHa!) Wonderful job. I really loved what you
    had to say, and more than that, how you presented it.
    Too cool!

  31. Good day! I could have sworn I’ve been to this website before but after checking through some of the post I realized it’s new to me. Anyhow, I’m definitely happy I found it and I’ll be book-marking and checking back frequently!
