The Rise of Reason
Pervez Hoodbhoy

I have been worried about the decline of reason and the resurgence of unreason. Now for quite a long time this is something that is quite universal. It is there in every country of the world but more and some and less in the others. It is something which has enormous implications for the future of human existence and for the resolution of our problems. Let me back up a little bit. About 300 years ago, Europe went through a phase which is called the age of reason.

Darwin and Evolution in the Muslim World: Science as Silent Subversion  ڈارون اور مسلم دنیا میں ارتقاءکا نظریہ : سائنس ایک خاموش تخریب؛ پرویز ہودبھائی
Pervez Hoodbhoy

چند سال قبل میں نے اسلام اور سائنس کے عنوان پر پاکستان کی سب سے مشہور یونیورسٹی یعنی لاہور میں لاہور یونیورسٹی مینجمنٹ سائنسز میں ایک خطاب دیا تھا۔ اور وہاں بھی اسی طرح ایک مثال کے طور پر میں نے کہا کہ اس لمحے لاکھوں لوگ قحط کو دور کرنے کے لئے بارش کی دعا کر رہے ہیں۔ اور اگر آپ کو یہ لگتا ہے کہ سائنس کسی کام کی چیز ہے تو آپ کو یہ جاننا چاہئے کہ بارش دعا سے نازل نہیں ہوگی۔ وہاں بھی لوگ اسی طرح بھڑک اٹھے اور وہ واقعہ انٹرنیٹ پر شائع ہو گیا اور یونیورسٹی کی انتظامیہ کے پاس بھی یہ معاملہ چلا گیا جسے یہ بتایا گیا کہ میں ایسی باتیں کر رہا ہوں جو کفر اور الحاد ہیں۔ لہٰذا، یہ دوسرا رد عمل تھا۔

I wish I had time or I could tell you about my experiences with conversation with Mullas, I asked one very prominent Maulvi, Mulla on television, and said if everything is over there in the Quran how come the west has invented all of these, and we do not have it, he said what you do not know is that before a western scientist goes to bed, he studies the Quran, in the morning when he wakes up he reads it again when he goes to his laboratory where he already knows what he is going to find……

One might say, what about this Hadith? What if it were really an authentic Hadith? Did the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) actually say this?

Let us keep away from all such ignorance. Let us stop making such a false accusation against Islam due to lack of knowledge and understanding....

There is a video of Zakir Naik smugly telling the host of a chat show that non-Muslims are not allowed to preach in an Islamic state. Why? Well, we Muslims already have the truth so why should we allow others to preach falsehoods in our lands? Never mind the fact that Muslims are freely living, worshipping and preaching in the West... And if you are offended by Zakir, he adds, you can just “sue the Quran.” Despite the fact his style goes completely against the Quran, he feels he is God’s elect....
