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

Think twice before you speak, because your words and influence will plant the seed of either success or failure in the mind of another - Napoleon Hill

Humour Without Malice

A government office issued an urgent document to be distributed among its subsidiaries. To ensure that it would be delivered in time, the messenger was provided with a horse. Running behing the horse, the messenger whipped the horse until it was galloping at full speed. Someone asked him in amazement: "If it's such an urgent mission why don't you ride the horse?" The messenger asnwered: "Running on six legs is certainly quicker than on four, isn't it?"
