Quranic Evidences Attesting To The Fact That Contemporary Beneficial Works & Sciences Fall Under The Religion Of Islam By Shaykh Abdur Rahman b. Nasir as-Saadi
An excerpt from the book:
Indeed, all praise is due to Allaah. We praise Him, seek refuge with Him, and seek His forgiveness. We seek refuge with Allaah from the evils of our souls and the mistakes in our actions. Whosoever Allaah Guides, there is none who can misguide him, and whoever Allaah misguides, there is none can guide him. And I testify that none has the right to be worshiped but Allaah, and I testify that Muhammad (صلى الله عليه و سلم) is His Prophet and Messenger.
As for what follows:
This book includes the decisive proofs that Religion of Islam, its sciences, its deeds and its teachings included all kinds of goodness, mercifulness and guidance, and righteousness and correctness of every type in all cases. Also, the cosmic sciences and the beneficial modern technologies are considered an integral part of the sciences of religion, but its deeds are not opposed to it as argued by the ignorant or the materialists. However, every science regarded to be beneficial to religion and life, groups and individuals is an integral part of Islam. The religion of Islam referred to it and guided the people to it in addition to every benefit till the Day of Resurrection. It is clear that the modern technologies if not based on religion and relevant to it, will be more harmful rather than beneficial and worse rather than better.
However, this central principle requires two aspects:
Firstly: to know what is signified by the Quran and the Sunnah briefly and in detail.
Secondly: to be aware of the facts and actual occurrences recognized by the unprejudiced rational people.
Whenever anybody knows the two aspects, then he will be relevant to the sciences of Islam. Also, its deeds and industries are originally good and virtuous. Moreover, the one who is aware of them knows one aspect through the other, and the mistake will be made when violating one of them or both.
Whenever the major issues are recognized, they shall be rendered to the minor ones. And whenever one speaks about minor issues before understanding the major ones, a grievous mistake will be made, and the suspicions that deceive the ignorant will be made public, or they will be held public by the opinionated.
