Islamic and western perpectives on exploring human nature in shaping new insights on human and humanity

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

Humans today have a destructive mind towards life, be it in the environment, science, economy and the social system. The reason to the misinterpretation of human nature due to secularism of the world, which has pushed aside religion in theprocess of civilization. The solution to this problem of the human mind is to redefine human and humanity based on the science of prophecy in order for humans to be more constructive towards life and to return humans to the reality of humanityand its disposition. For example, science need spiritual elements; that are scientific studies should be accompanied by theconcept of divinity such as the concept of 'creation' not solely the concept of 'evolution'. The use of science of revelation in redefining of human and humanity is important because the science of prophecy comes from the Creator-who knows humans and humanity, characters and its characteristics other than the Creator himself? Both Islamic and Western scholars realized that the crisis of human and humanity today stems from civilization that was created without spiritual elements, because the civilization that was created was based solely on mind logic (rational and intellect) and rejected the superiority of the science of prophecy (al-Quran and Sunnah). The wave of this new way of thinking rebuts the theory of evolution of Charles Darwin (1979) in his book On the Origin of Species about the creation of men, which rejected the concept of divinity that is promoted by religion where humans and other beings are the creation of God. Sigmund Freud (1949) had the sameconcept, which stated that humans and animals are equal and thus ignores the role of the human brain that differentiates between humans and animals. This wave of idea claims that the fact of humans and humanity, characters and its characteristics should be redefined based on the science of prophecy. Thus, it is time to identify, discuss and research the fact of humans and humanity from the Western secularism perspective in the process of comparing with Islamic perspective and to suggest new insights about humans and humanity, characters and characteristics. The effort to find new insights need research processes.
