The Islamic Journal is a unique Journal in that it doesn’t follow the usual methods of other academic journals. It came about as a result of a book I was writing called “The Knowledge Behind The Terminology and Concepts in Tassawwuf and It’s Origin”, the title is as descriptive as possible because the book was written in the same style as classical islamic texts, a single document without any chapter’s since they were a later invention which hindered the flow of the book.
That book looked into the Islamic science of Ihsan, Human perfection, were it’s terminology and concepts came from, what they mean and the knowledge and science they were based on. I started researching the subject some five or so years ago and it resulted in a book whose current length is over 300,000 words, not counting research notes.
Towards the end of the book I realized that the scientific subjects, at the heart of Islam, needed to be looked into further because i had learned some interesting things which needed to be investigated, so the book was put on hold as i looked at more research papers to gain deeper knowledge.
The work was done entirely feesabililah, and because of that I wanted to share what I already understood rather than having it sitting their, so i decided to write a separate book with a smaller scope entitled “Who Was al Khidr”, the prophet Khidr (ra) was the perfect role model for the topic because his story in the Quran is the essence of what a muslim is trying to achieve. The book was about how man gains knowledge from the world around him through his physiology (mans body and senses), essentially how Maarifa (gnosis) works from it’s scientific aspects, a subject at the heart of this Journal but not it’s entire scope.
The original book was the heart of all my research and this second book represented it’s end product, but i felt it was to technical for many people so this resulted in me writing three introductory works on the subject to ease people into it’s context, the first was “Human Physiology and It’s Relationship To Baraka”, “What is The Unseen World and Where Is It: Explaining The Technical Terminology Of The Scholars”, and “How Is Allah The Light Of The Heavens and The Earth”.
