Islam as a religion and a complete way of life enjoins all Muslims not only to seek for knowledge but also to utilize and impart it in accordance with its tenets. Basically, Islam considers knowledge in its entirety as universal, but what matters is its epistemology, methodology and usage. This is why at the early stage of Islam; education aimed not only at the spiritual development of an individual but also his intellectual, emotional, social, economic and physical well being. Consequently, the early scholars of Islam were intellectually sound in all aspects of human life. With the passage of time, however, the urge for Muslims to seek for knowledge declined. This was further compounded by colonialism as a result of which Muslim traditional Islamic institutions were dominated by secularism.
