Keywords: epistemology; phenomenology; unity of knowledge; Islamization of knowledge.
Language: English

Aims/ objectives: To derive and formalize the methodology of unity of knowledge and its application to the organic unity of generalized and specific issues of the world-system from the basis of the epistemic origin of the monotheistic law (tawhid) in the Qur’an. The theory of Islamization of knowledge is thereby constructed on the basis of the evolutionary learning model that ensues and is formalized. Such an approach brings out the system and cybernetic nature of the knowledge-induced world-system with epistemic unity.

Study design: Conceptual, historical and review of the literature. 

Methodology: A formal model of monotheistic unity of knowledge is derived from the Qur’an and the Prophetic guidance (sunnah) along with enlightened human discourse. The emergent model is used to bring out the dynamic understanding of the concept of Islamization of knowledge and education. The formal model is then made to address potentially applied issues and problems of the generalized and specific types.

Results: A critical study of the classical and modern literature in the field of Islamization of knowledge against the evolutionary learning perspective of Islamization of knowledge derived in this paper establishes an altogether new and universal methodological orientation of this paper. This is true both conceptually and in terms of potential application as pointed out in the paper.

Conclusion:The epistemological methodology of monotheistic unity of knowledge and its relationship in the moral-social reconstruction of the organically unified world-system with its generalized and specific issues is found to be a universal theory. It is applicable to the entire socio-scientific domain. This point is established by logical argumentation and formalism.
