Another aim of this philosophy was to reconcile revelation with reason, knowledge with faith, and religion with philosophy, and to show that reason and revelation do not contradict each other, and that religion would be accepted by the pagan when it is illuminated by the light of philosophic wisdom.

Sayyid Abul Ala Maududi who is credited with creating modern Islamist political thought in the 20th century, argued that science was itself merely re-discovering that all matter and energy obeys laws, and that Kafir claims that humankind was free of obligation to comprehend and obey such laws, had to be resisted by Muslims.

Medieval Islamic Philosophical Writings edited by Muhammad Ali Khalidi (Cambridge Texts in the History of Philosophy: Cambridge University Press) Philosophy in the Islamic world emerged in the ninth century and continued to flourish into the fourteenth century.
