UNIVERSITY OF MANAGEMENT AND TECHNOLOGY

Department of Islamic Thought and Civilization

Introduction

Establishing the Department of Islamic Thought and Civilization in University of Management and Technology is a reflection of passion and enthusiasm of some gifted scholars who wish to introduce Islamic Civilization to the world as a living and dynamic entity. They feel that human prosperity and development depends upon leading role of Islam in the current scenario, and humanity today is in need of a civilization which, on one hand, draws its strength from the revealed knowledge and on the other hand benefits from the Modern knowledge.

A civilization which is not only spiritual but also meets the highest parameters of rationality; which not only promotes ethical and spiritual standards on the one hand and provides a frame work to offer genuine solutions to the issues emerging out of interaction of Muslim society with the globalization and industrialization of the West. A civilization which helps in using human and material sources and means of communication in the light of Islamic concepts of social justice, equity, freedom, social welfare and fundamental rights.
