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

Happiness is when what you think, what you say, and what you do are in harmony, Mahatma Ghandi

Humour Without Malice

Mullah Nasruddin had lost his ring, so he set out to search for it under the street light. Others came to help him search. Finally when asked if he was certain he had dropped it in this spot, he said, "No, I lost it there," and pointed to his house. The others asked incredulously: "Then why are you looking for it here?" The Mullah said, while trying to look clever: "Because it is dark where I lost it, and it is light out here!"

Hikmah

Anyone who believes in God and the Last Day (of Judgment) should not harm his neighbour. Anyone who believes in God and the Last Day should entertain his guest generously. And anyone who believes in God and the Last Day should say what is good or keep quiet.- Hadith: Sahih Al-Bukhari, Volume 8, Book 73, Number 47.
