Muslim Institute is pleased to present the book launch of Islam & Natural Philosophy: Principles of Daqiq al-Kalam by Prof Basil Altaie published by Beacon Books.

The book presents the works of theologians regarding Natural Philosophy including their views on space, time, motion, matter and the rest of the natural world.

These topics, called “Daqīq al-Kalām” complement the other part of kalām regarding divinity (Ilahiyat), called “Jalil al-Kalām”. The novel contribution of Altaie is his discovery that the scholars based their arguments on five basic principles:

  • Temporality
  • Atomism
  • Continual re-creation
  • Contingency and Indeterminacy of the world
  • Integrity of space and time

Basil Altaie is a scholar in theoretical physics and Islamic Kalam. He has contributed to many conferences on science and philosophy. He has published 10 books in Arabic and two in English. His English books are published in the US, UK and Malaysia.
