Live Islaam, Learn Islaam

There is no true conflict between the two types of evidence…

...transmitted revealed knowledge and intellectual examination, when both are properly used and correctly understood

Sheikh Muhammad ‘Amaan Ibn ‘Alee al-Jaamee, may Allaah have mercy upon him, said,

‘Rather, the first three generations of believers held as being part of their methodology that there was no true conflict between the two types of evidence, transmitted revealed knowledge and intellectual examination, when both are properly used and correctly understood. In fact they rejected this alleged conflict which the misguided scholars of philosophical rhetoric incorrectly assumed and adopted due to being affected by the concepts and methods of Greek philosophy. This is taking into account that fact that the path proceeded upon by the scholars of philosophical rhetoric is in reality the same methodology of the disbelieving philosophers from outside the people of Islaam upon the foundation that they do not recognize and affirm the truth of prophethood at all…
….In summary, the first three generations gave dominant authority to the body of evidences from transmitted revealed knowledge over any authority of intellectually derived conclusions and derived evidences. The had full faith in them, believing that Allaah sent to humanity messengers, and revealed books of guidance to these messengers, and made these messengers responsible for explaining and clarifying what the people needed to understand (as this was part of their purpose and affair).’
