Preliminary Statement on a General Theory of the Islamization of the Malay-Indonesian Archipelago

SYED MUHAMMAD NAQUIB AL-ATTAS is a former Senior Lecturer in Malay Studies at the University of Malaya. He has written a lot of books and articles of an original nature in English in the field of classical Malay (Islamic) literature. He is a former Director of International Institute of Islamic Thought and Civilization (ISTAC) and a member of the International Advisory Board of the Muslim Education Foundation (MEF). Syed Muhammad al Naquib bin Ali al-Attas (born September 5, 1931) is a prominent contemporary Muslim philosopher and thinker from Malaysia. He is one of the few contemporary scholars who is thoroughly rooted in the traditional Islamic sciences and who is equally competent in theology, philosophy, metaphysics, history, and literature. He is considered to be the pioneer in proposing the idea of Islamization of knowledge. Al-Attas’ philosophy and methodology of education have one goal: Islamization of the mind, body and soul and its effects on the personal and collective life on Muslims as well as others, including the spiritual and physical non-human environment. He is the author of twenty-seven authoritative works on various aspects of Islamic thought and civilization, particularly on Sufism, cosmology, metaphysics, philosophy and Malay language and literature.

Preliminary Statement On A General Theory Of The Islamization Of The Malay-Indonesian Archipelago presents a bold – even radical – configuration, perhaps for the first time, setting forth the outlines of a general theory of the Islamization of the Malay-Indonesian Archipelago.

The author’s vision of the past with reference to the history of Islam in the Archipelago, and his assessment of the cultural impact of Islam therein, may yet clarify the vagueness and obscurity that pervade the subject and, further, effect fundamental changes in the historical appreciation of the role of the Malay civilization, hitherto only fragmentarily and inaccurately formulated, in the history of Islam in the Archipelago.
