IAIS Malaysia

Vision

IAIS Malaysia strives to be a centre of excellence for research on Islam and contemporary issues by promoting high quality thought and discourse for the benefit of Muslim societies and governments.

The main framework of our research agenda is to offer more cogent understanding and application of tajdid hadari or Civilisational Renewal. This forms the basis to advance the role of Islam as the foundation of Malaysia’s pluralist society in pursuit of human development. IAIS Malaysia also interacts with government and ministry representatives towards implementing suggested policies and guidelines by means of advancing balanced interpretations of Islam. This is done through recourse to ijtihad, the higher objectives (maqasid) of the Shariah and reformist thought (islah).

We make a concerted effort to address and rectify misrepresentations of Islam through regular colloquia, public outreach, quality publications and digital media. We are dedicated to presenting a deeper understanding of the universal teachings of Islam and their practical implications for contemporary problems of modernity.

Hikmah

The weightiest deeds are three: financial assistance to one's fellows; deflecting your own injustice away from people; and remembrance of God in every circumstance. (hadith)
