Profesa Haroon Mustapha Lion

  • Reason and logic
  • “One of the traits of Islam is that it is based on mental aptitude. It does not call its followers to kill their divine intellectual abilities. Islam also loves research and inquiry. It calls its followers to study, search and consider before believing. Islam supports the wise saying: ‘prove the soundness of everything, then adhere to the good.’ This is not surprising since wisdom is the quest of a believer and, wherever he finds it, he is the most deserving to have it. Islam is the religion of reason and logic. We find, therefore, that the first word revealed to Prophet Muhammad was ‘read’. We also find that the motto of Islam is the call to ponder and reflect before believing. Islam is the truth and its weapon is knowledge, and its arch-enemy is ignorance. “
