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.

Quotable Quotes

As human beings, our greatness lies not so much in being able to remake the world - that is the myth of the atomic age - as in being able to remake ourselves. (Mahatma Gandhi)

Humour Without Malice

An old woman came to the Prophet (pbuh) and said: "O Messenger of Allah, pray to Allah that I will enter Paradise." He said jokingly, "O Mother of So-and-so, no old women will enter Paradise." The old woman went away crying, so the Prophet (pbuh) said, "Tell her that she will not enter Paradise as an old woman, for old women will enter Paradise in their prime youth." - Reported by al-Tirmidhi.

Hikmah

Be not like the hypocrite who, when he talks tells lies; when he makes a promise he breaks it; and when trust is placed in him proves dishonest. (hadith)
