The Center for Islamic Civilization Studies was established in 2013, in response to the need for reforming the Islamic religious discourse on one hand, and bridging the gap between Islamic Fiqh and our contemporary world on the other. The center aims to contribute to the construction of a contemporary and systematic Islamic discourse, interwoven with reality, and create a space for interaction between Islamic Fiqh and thought, and the modern world we live in, with all its entanglements and complications. To this end, the center presents the contemporary perspectives and thoughts sweeping our modern world in a scientific and cognitive way that introduces Islamic thought to new horizons. It also attempts to mobilize Islamic scholars and intellects to interact positively with global issues, and encourages them to engage in the areas of ijtihad (Islamic diligence), and contemporary social issues without fear or sensitivity.
