There is a popular division in the history of Islamic sciences as rational sciences and religious sciences. Say that tafsir, fiqh and hadith are the religious sciences; math, astronomy, geography and so forth are rational sciences. Popular mindset tells us that after a certain breaking point religious ibhi started to become superior over rational sciences and at the same time, Muslims stopped thinking and started repeating themselves.

Ibmi encounter the first complaints regarding the subject around the 17 th century but it was substantially pervaded in the 20 th century. Orientalists played a very important role on this allegation to become widespread. Of course, our inferiority complex against the political and military supremacy of the West had its share on this easy conviction. When we look back at the history of Islamic sciences, we realize almost immediately that the idea of us abandoning the rational sciences is a rotten suggestion.

Let everything aside, if rational sciences were abandoned in the 11 th century, how could the late Muslims rule the world and keep it that way for the next years, like?


Countries are conquered by battles, that is true but they are ruled by intelligence and wisdom. How do the civilizations exist and then become extinct? He attempts to analyze this in his famous Mukaddime Introduction through methodological history, which he named it science of prosperity. Orientalism fanatics intend to introduce him to us as the only star, who just appeared all of a sudden in the 14 th century and his wisdom was self inflicted.


They try to trick us into believing that he was not the continuation of the rational and religious science masters before him, he was a pioneer of the Western sciences, who came ahead of time.

His work speaks for itself as well as his personality, method of science and biography.

Ibn I Haldun Mukaddime 2

His writings become our major guidance when it comes to talk about him: These are certainly substantial matters. However, not many look at him ibnii the perspective of his own work. Especially the outlooks from Turkey are very mukaxdime. His family is a well-known Andalusian family, immigrated to North Africa, Tunisia at the end of the 12 th century. Introducing his own biography by explaining the historical mukaddime of his family is a remarkable indicator of how sharply his mind worked.

Where we were born, what language we speak, environment we live in and receive education are all results mukadfime our family history and sociology. When we take a close look at the books that he had to read one can immediately notice the high advancement of the 14 th century Maghrebi in Islamic sciences.

At the end of his education, he began to work as a clerk. Subsequently he became kadi. When we mention kadiit should not be taken as one of our modern day judges, who only adjudicate at lawsuits.

For Islamic societies, kadis played the role of independent judges, and exercised important missions on behalf of education and bureaucracy. From place to place, it was seen that kadis took important parts in administering halun cities. In other words, before everything else he was a grand master and a major practitioner of religious sciences. This is a critical situation, which will force bini to question the validity of the opposition between rational sciences and religious sciences.


Although, the traces of his observations acquired during his visits to North Africa and Andalusia as kadi are significant in his historical methodology. If he had spent all of his life in only one city he would not have this much knowledge and experience of prosperity. It has been hakdun that his ideas were not rewarded at Andalusia and North Africa, which are the subjects of his work.

This is an understandable matter. Because when he wrote his Mukaddime domination and centralization were moving to Ottoman lands, in other words to Anatolia. The following two centuries witnessed the Ottomans shine upon the Muslim countries and Europe.

Ibnii wisdom started to make an impact only after Ottomans were in a depression and this was natural. However, it is the truth that there was an Orientalistic interference.

Orientalism, which removed him from his well-known scholar of Islam and bureaucrat identity, disguised him as far from modern Western way of mjkaddime. It is the time to abandon this fantasy and start reading him ourselves from his own words. About Us Copyright Page Contact.
