Modern Muslim Scholars with Strong Islamic World-view

Our college going youth needs to be exposed to real intellectuals rooted in Islamic tradition, side-by-side with scholars of pure islamic studies and 'rapid modernists'. The most important link or player in this game between Westernized pesudo-intellectuals and Islam-loving masses is this middle-of-the-road class of learned muslims in Western languages and thought - religious scholars, writers, poets, social scientists, economists, doctors, engineers, etc. - who see things from Islamic perspective. Survival and growth of this class - to me - will decide whether an Islam modeled on the character of Prophet emerge, i.e., justice, faith, wisdom and mercy; or, an Islam of "sang dil" (who a people who are traitors of Prophet (s.a.w.); or, Protestant Islam; or, total secularism. Allah knows best.

  1. I really desire that these people be united in their struggle and synchronize their efforts. Who really signify the meaning of verse 29 of surah al fath:
    "Muhammad (sallallahu alayhi wasallam) is the messenger of Allah. And those who are with him are severe against disbelievers, and merciful among themselves. You see them prostrate, seeking Bounty from Allah and His Good pleasure. The mark of them is on their faces from the traces of prostration. this is their description in Torah. But their description in the Gospel is like a seed which sends forth its shoot, then makes it strong, and becomes thick and it stands straight on its stem, delighting the sowers, that He may enrage the disbelievers with them. Allah has promised those among them who believe and do righteous good deeds, forgiveness and a mighty reward.
