How will the Civilization of Islam/Quran be Built? What does the Dream of Medresetüzzehra Express?
We talk about something new and very different: Mentioning Allah, even mentioning Him with justifications; and building a science approach and philosophy of science that will be approved and be presented to humanity totally differ from each other and have big cliffs between.
There is also this point: Telling what comes to your mind, mouth and heart at that moment, and telling the truths of faith with an academic program syllabus based on a written and systematic text and instruct it are also very different things like day and night…
“Medresetüzzehra Education Approach” introduced by Bediuzzaman Said Nursi as an innovative education project at the beginning of the era is the special name of “instructing rational and religious sciences together, reconciliation and merging of them” It is not restricted to their being instructed together only.
Bediüzzaman Said Nursi, at the beginning of last century, presented “Medresetüzzehra Education Approach”, as the special name of a project of innovational educational program, teaching of rational and religious sciences together, their reconciliation and integration.
Our program aims to provide serious analysis and studies, as a philosophical basis, in terms of introduction to the Scientific World of such an educational approach which accepts the existence of a Creator, by developing scientific models, and interpretations which can prove to be alternatives to scientific approaches to the existence of the Creator, by developing alternative scientific approaches that can be accepted and by establishing the philosophy of science and curriculum of “Medresetüzzehra Education Approach”.
We have presentations which have been presented in two languages in international congresses (Turkish orally, English written) and published in academic literature, which search for the proofs of the acceptance of a creator’s existence and makes its deductions in this direction; which reveal the value of scientific approaches and studies for humanity, and make deductions on the worth of scientific knowledge and interpretations in this direction. We also have some analyses on how a scientific approach will be presented to the scientific world.
For us, the most prior and important subject is to occupy oneself for the sake of Medresetuzzehra and Quran civilization.
Yes, making significant analyses about how to present such an education approach to the scientific world and producing intellectual infrastructure is an occupation above all.
Yet, unfortunately, we deeply express our sadness witnessing that in the two Creation congresses, the number of presentations dealing with this subject are only a couple although around 90-100 years passed over the publishing of the Works.
What we mean is to give justification and offer proofs to the existence of the creator in an academic and systematic manner, not with premises. We don’t say it is not made, for sure. Yet, it is made in a disorganized, unplanned and unprepared manner. This is not enough. What we talk about is “to build a philosophy of science to build a philosophy of science which accepts the existence of a creator and makes its deductions and expressions in this direction, which has a solid logic construct about all these, which confronts humanity with alternative models, and puts across itself”
We need this so much.
