There remain a few important nontechnical issues that we must address if we wish to see the field of science and Islam develop and thrive seriously tomorrow. Such issues include:

  • the need to teach the philosophy of science (in a reasonable and enriching way);
  • the need to revisit and present the history of science, including the Islamic contribution and the rise of modern science, in much more rigorous way;
  • the need to engage in a serious dialogue with the Muslim theologians and scholars and convince them that science today has much to say on topics that they have monopolised for too long;
  • the need to educate the public on science issues that are rather closely related to the religious domain;
  • and finally the need to link with non-Muslim thinkers who have developed expertise in the field of science and religion.
