    This issue of the Journal of Islamic Thought and Civilization brings to bear the impact of the Revolutionary philosophy of Dr Ali Shariati to the baseless accusations of Bernard Lewis on Islam and its contested relationship with slavery.

    From the rich treasures of Dagestani manuscripts at Princeton and a crash course on historiography to current developments gripping the Muslim world, this issue of the Journal of Islamic Thought and Civilization is noticeable for the diversity of topics covered. While compiling this issue, the editors have taken care to include articles that are likely to arouse the interest of the general reader as well as the serious scholar. So the insight into the Arab Spring or the recent controversy surrounding the visual depictions of the Prophet Muhammad (SAW) will be read with special interest. The critique on Orientalism and cultural hybridity in colonial India will evoke strong interest as many among us still identify with the ramifications of both.
    The focus of the JITC has always been broad based, encompassing myriad facets of the Islamic Thought and Civilization because the subject itself is vast and largely unexplored. It is our mission to devote our energies towards exploring it.

    This is the third issue of the Journal of Islamic Thought and Civilization. Unlike the first two issues which focused on certain topics (first issue was on "Islam and Modernity" and second was on "Islamic Civilization – Potentials and Challenges"), this issue covers a diverse range of topics from wealth management in Islam to Foucault‘s refutation of religion and from reconstruction of humanities in Islamic perspective to a reflection on the Muslim world‘s resources. This variety of topics not only depicts heterogeneity of Islamic Thought and Civilization but may also attract the interests of researchers from multiple fields of life.

    September 2011-Issue II

    This issue of the Journal of Islamic Thought and Civilization comprises of research papers presented at the ‘International Conference on Islamic Civilization: Potentials and Challenges’ held in March 2011. The papers have been selected on the basis of the breadth of issues that they cover and their relevance in meeting the challenges that Muslim and non-Mulsim intellectuals come across in academic circles, in formal and informal exchange of ideas and insights, and in the ongoing and important task of cultivating the minds of Muslim youth to help them realize that they too can become channels of knowledge generation rather than being mere passive receivers of relentless knowledge onslaught from the West. If the readers find this issue of the Journal helpful in answering the questions that arise in their minds, or if it helps them to ask more intellectually demanding questions, then the editors can rightfully feel that the effort in putting together this issue has borne fruit.
