Thought between curriculum and tradition

Engineer Adnan Rifai

Islamic writer and thinker – Syria

.. Thought is the activation energy self prudence phenomena that interact with human culture, and various tools of his life .. He thought the nation is manageable mechanism and its interaction with the knowledge, Nizarha to prospects of life in its various forms, and thus is the approach governing the methods of reason and perception in the development of knowledge, and Nazationa in their interaction with this knowledge ..

The thought is a compendium of culture and life experience for everyone, and the guiding force for the nation's interaction with knowledge, and to create mechanisms for the advancement of knowledge of civilization, spiritual Bugeah and physical ..

The thought is not a specific model interacts with human - in every time and place - a constant take it steady course .. It continuously activate the cultural sanity article in the hands of the human In visions horizon, and prudence what tools and cultural life in his hands .. All of binoculars evolving parallel to the intellectual development of the nation, which is produced ..

We therefore believe that the word thought ( As well as your mind ) Not contained in the Book of Allah as nominal if not once, and that what is the actual formula is .. فبمقدار be activated self and تعقلها in the production of the foundations of constructive knowledge, as much as it is produced thought ..

Thinker and is keen new horizons, are arranged accordingly culture of the nation, to move to a future point on the time axis .. Which is opening up new horizons for the transfer of thought and culture of the nation forward .. Vamufkr future culture that produces progressing nation to ..

From here .. We have to distinguish between those who produce thought Phippda the new approaches in thinking, movement of walking out to the intellectual and cultural Highness, and those who consume this thought, Vigatra the continuously to remain in the same intellectual point on the axis of intellectual creativity .. Ie we have to distinguish between a way of thinking creatively to the mechanisms of evolution, and between tradition which does not exceed the interaction with specific intellectual productive stage at a specific point in time ..

.. The criterion of intellectual production is Prover creativity, and innovation aimed to HH the nation's culture and ideology .. When stops creativity and innovation in thought, it means that the nation does not produce thought, and therefore do not think ..

Therefore, we believe that intellectual production is at its most at odds with the general culture and ideology, and that drives them - with time - for the direction of their own culture and their thoughts to him, through their dialogue and interaction with ..

.. This is the law that regulates the historic cultural and intellectual movement in human history .. But .. When the public thought, and culture, and what they used to tradition from their parents, timekeeper for the production of intellectual development at the nation, it means the death of intellectual production in this nation, and ruminate about the past, and thus exit from the effective date as a nation in it, and driving laws ..

The culture of the public always revolve in the orbit of tradition and fear of intellectual renewal, so the production is based on the shoulders of intellectual who carry the responsibility of the intellectual renewal of the nation, through the courage of the right, and their determination and sacrifice in the process ..

And so on .. The culture of the nation means its total cognitive .. And intellectual production mean degree of sanity, creativity and innovation in this cognitive balance .. There may be a culture without no intellectual production .. But it is impossible to produce thought without having a knowledge base built upon this intellectual production ..

And between intellectual production and the advancement of civilization inherent Tam, Without intellectual production does not produce civilization does not evolve .. The culture makes us able to interact with existing civilization, but - without intellectual production - do not allow us to produce a civilization and advancement to a higher degree on the scale of the progress of civilization ..

The nation that does not produce civilized thought does not evolve, and thus delayed - for other producing nations of civilization - on the scale of the progress of civilization, and it seems her time like walking toward the past ..

واستمرارُ النهوضِ في البناءِ الحضاريِّ باتّجاهِ الأمام ، ولمصلحةِ البُعدِ الإنسانيِّ ، يَتطلّبُ من الإنتاجِ الفِكريِّ أن يحويَ بماهيّتِهِ نُهوضاً في القِيَمِ الإنسانيّةِ البنّاءةِ ، موازياً للنهوضِ المادّيِّ في الحضارةِ المدنيّةِ المُنتجَةِ ، وإلاّ فسيطغى الجانبُ المادّيُّ في النهوضِ الحضاريِّ على جانبِهِ الروحيِّ ، وستتحوّلُ الحضارةُ المُنتَجَةُ إلى عِبءٍ على الإنسانيّةِ ، بدلاً من كونِها خادمةً لها ..

Valenhod physical requires نهوضا the spiritual parallel, and only civilian civilization produced will be inversely proportional to the benefit of mankind .. In the story of Pharaoh's biggest proof of that, where the advancement of the civil aspects of .. Vengh construction, mummification in the field of medicine, and other sciences, peaked, at which time I arrived in humanitarian values ​​to the bottom ..

The basis of the evolution of thought and underdevelopment Nations, how he approached degree of truth and credibility due all causes of development and victory, to the point of staying away from the right to return all the causes of underdevelopment and defeat .. Behind each case, the nation's intellectual introductions have led to this situation ..

On this basis, the call to stop the intellectual production, and the claim that thought the product at the stage of specific historical fit for the development of civilization in every time and place, is a call to stop the development of civilization spiritually and materially, because the thought born in the historical period defined not only fit to create a culture specific, do not go out ..

Even many of the theorists of Islamic thought killed in the tunnels of this call, claiming that the thought of colored Ancestors المصوغ the privacy of civilization that lived in their time in favor of the production of renewable civilizations until the time, exposed the fact carry the Koran ( The basis of Islam ) لينابيعِ الإنتاجِ الفِكريِّ الذي تُنشَأُ عليه الحضاراتُ حتى قيامِ الساعةِ ، غيرَ مُدركين لحقيقةِ الفصلِ بين الأحكامِ الثابتةِ التي تحمِلُ تِبيانَ الشعائر ، وبين الأحكامِ المتجدّدةِ مع الزمنِ التي يحملُها النصُّ القرآنيُّ ذاتُهُ لكلِّ جيلٍ بما يُناسِبُ حضارتَهُ ، مُتناسينَ قولَ اللهِ تعالى الذي يُبيّنُ أنّ إدراكَ دلالاتِ القرآنِ الكريمِ في تَصَاعُدٍ مُستمرٍّ حتى قيامِ الساعةِ ، وليستْ ثابتةً ولا تخرجُ عن إدراكِ الأجيالِ الأولى كما يتصوّرون ..

( سَنُرِيهِمْ آيَاتِنَا فِي الْآفَاقِ وَفِي أَنْفُسِهِمْ حَتَّى يَتَبَيَّنَ لَهُمْ أَنَّهُ الْحَقُّ أَوَلَمْ يَكْفِ بِرَبِّكَ أَنَّهُ عَلَى كُلِّ شَيْءٍ شَهِيدٌ ) ( Separated : 53 )

Most of these theorists of Islamic Thought, made the historical interpretation of the Quranic text, the Koran substitute for the text of the Quran itself, this text is abrogated ( حَسْبَ زعمِهِم ) , And that the text Takes Bdalalath the reasons novels go down, and that the text does not go out for modern connotations attributed to the Prophet r .. As a result invitation has been theorizing and historical perceptions, under the shade of the call to the Book of Allah .. Which was converted some aspects of the history curriculum ..

The most intellectual ideologies that stood behind the most invitations cultural and political and intellectual in our Arab history, were either imported from abroad, either based on the thought of a specific historical stage without taking into account the fact that intellectual renewal must come from the same essence of thought ..

Therefore, the problem always lies in who counted on subsequent tradition of thought, and followers the blind نهوضا, and blind nerve constructive culture .. All this تمثلا to describe God ..

( إِنَّهُمْ أَلْفَوْا آبَاءَهُمْ ضَالِّينَ (69) فَهُمْ عَلَى آثَارِهِمْ يُهْرَعُونَ ) ( Saffat : 69 – 70 )

( بَلْ قَالُوا إِنَّا وَجَدْنَا آبَاءَنَا عَلَى أُمَّةٍ وَإِنَّا عَلَى آثَارِهِمْ مُهْتَدُونَ ) ( Decoration : 22 )

The problem we have in most of our stations we offer historical advancement of the nation on a historical basis, not on an intellectual basis, forgetting the fact that the advancement of civilization which is not through history, but through thought ..

.. If we look at the causes of underdevelopment of civilization for other nations, because we have seen is divided into the causes of external and internal reasons ..

[ 1 ] - External causes, centered around two main points :

( Meets all the conditions legitimacy ) - Ongoing plots of this nation .. If we went back to the truth of the matter objectively and our search into the reasons for the success of these plots in achieving its objectives, for our success based building blocks of our weaknesses, and our shortcomings in the face of these plots, and our religious and sectarian differences and regional ..

If brands to the desired level in the face of these plots, the achieved goals as he wants this nation's enemies .. The to the way the face of these plots is the awareness of the work and do not get involved in disputes Side .. All this can only be through proper thought of fusing the sons of this nation in one pot to produce the building blocks of the confrontation, which shatter it all conspiracies ..

Had we think we have a culture of sound agreement among ourselves on the culture difference, and what Tqatlna, and what Kafr each other, and what each of us monopolized salvation for himself, and represent us the words of God :

( Virtue, righteousness and piety do not help one another in sin and transgression, and fear Allah, Allah is severe in punishment ) ( Table : 2 )

( وَلا تَسْتَوِي الْحَسَنَةُ وَلا السَّيِّئَةُ ادْفَعْ بِالَّتِي هِيَ أَحْسَنُ فَإِذَا الَّذِي بَيْنَكَ وَبَيْنَهُ عَدَاوَةٌ كَأَنَّهُ وَلِيٌّ حَمِيمٌ ) ( Separated : 34 )

( God does not forbid those who fought not against you on account of religion nor drove you out of your homes, dealing kindly and justly to them that God loves المقسطين ) ( Allah forbids : 8 )

Thus we see that the first reason for the success of foreign conspiracies of this nation is some cons we thought ..

( With ) - Other external reason is the progress of civilization to other nations, in a time when نراوح our place, and thus تسبقنا Nations we can not keep pace not only defend ourselves civilized tools lagging tools owned by those nations .. If we go back to the roots of cultural underdevelopment these, we have seen intellectual, Failure Atbana to ways of science and the advancement of civilization in a time when these others ways, our responsibility, and the responsibility we thought .. We still believe that the sword Antara fit to meet the plane and all the modern technology produced by others ..

[ 2 ] - Internal causes, we can restrict them to two points :

( Meets all the conditions legitimacy ) - Our shortcomings in the work and the dissolution behavior in a lot of concepts ( Compared with a lot of Nations ) , And all this is caused by the intellectual fragility produce - with time - behavior fragile, breaks down in front of any storm Whatever weak .. فالمصلحة when many individual Introduction to the interest of the nation, and theorizing much more than work, and feels like Ntmthel say God ..

( يَا أَيُّهَا الَّذِينَ آمَنُوا لِمَ تَقُولُونَ مَا لا تَفْعَلُونَ (2) Is an abomination in the sight of Allah that you say what you do not do ) ( Grade : 2 – 3 )

( With ) - Purely ideological reasons, and to embrace some of the ideas that what God has sent down from the Sultan, and that the dispersion of the energies of the nation, and differentiate their children to the doctrines and sects, each of which puts others in a ditch ideological hostility, and feels like Ntmthel say God ..

( Vtqtawa ordered each party, including Zebra, with their rejoicing ) ( Believers : 53 )

.. The last thought is the introduction of the status quo .. Civilization, industry, and development in all its forms, and spiritual values, preceded by the thought of paying the nation's culture and discourage their children toward their current, the nation Vhal result last thought, and the thought of the nation is the future introduction of civilization ..

From here we see that it can not be changed if the nation's only the evolution of thinking to the point given and the sons of the nation to the king will change for the advancement of sincere and constructive work .. The effective change starts with self-esteem, and so تمثلا to the words of God ..

( God does not change the condition of a people until they change what is in themselves ) ( Thunder : 11 )

In Rhode word ( بِأَنْفُسِهِمْ ) In this photo instead of Quranic ( In themselves ) Evidence that the required change which alters if the nation is in the nature of selves ( بِأَنْفُسِهِمْ ) , Not in some of its contents this selves ( In themselves ) ..

In this formulation discern the fact that the Quranic : Thought that the change in the nature of self, change is not limited to its contents breath of culture and perceptions, what between the continuity of thought the same for a long time and the nature of self reciprocal effect relationship exists, makes the thought of the nation - with time - an important influential in determining the color of the souls of their children ..

This color is caused by inherited thought for a long time, and self-dyeing color this thought, gives the nation's identity dyed the same color, even born in the nation have a greater potential to carry this color, and pigmentation of Education to come themselves ..

.. This fact أدركها Noah, peace be upon him, as a result experience for more than nine centuries with generations painted themselves painted the same disbelief and reluctance to approach God, until he became born where close to this color, a result thought of his ancestors for centuries, and deepens the color is in itself a result of education in ..

( وَقَالَ نُوحٌ رَبِّ لا تَذَرْ عَلَى الْأَرْضِ مِنَ الْكَافِرِينَ دَيَّاراً (26) You The Tdhirhm the lead astray, slaves and يلدوا only Vajra infidels ) ( Noah : 26 – 27 )

.. Our words, this does not mean ناموسا eliminates carried by instinct born, does not mean general law is no exception, Each carries births of Spirit ( Relevant and kin of God ) What makes Pure instinct ..

( الَّذِي أَحْسَنَ كُلَّ شَيْءٍ خَلَقَهُ وَبَدَأَ خَلْقَ الْإنْسَانِ مِنْ طِينٍ (7) ثُمَّ جَعَلَ نَسْلَهُ مِنْ سُلالَةٍ مِنْ مَاءٍ مَهِينٍ (8) ثُمَّ سَوَّاهُ وَنَفَخَ فِيهِ مِنْ رُوحِهِ وَجَعَلَ لَكُمُ السَّمْعَ وَالْأَبْصَارَ وَالْأَفْئِدَةَ قَلِيلاً مَا تَشْكُرُونَ ) ( Sajda : 7 – 9 )

And Abraham, peace be upon him was born of a father unbeliever, and Noah fathered a son infidel .. What we mean is that the community Batarh year Tansbg the souls of his sons-colored thought which is traded it for a long time, so carry most of those born in this community greater possibility of discoloration in this color, come education later to deepen the color is in the hearts of most of those born in this community ..

And we can نختزل the most important criteria for the safety of thought, and determine the degree of being a building and pushing the nation forward, the following points :

* - Construction of thought paid to the children of the nation towards a culture of the agreement, and keep them away from the culture of difference, and claim to possess the whole truth without the other ..

* - Construction of thought holds Bmahech possibilities of intellectual creativity, and the promotion of cultural and civilization, jettisoning the nation from being confined in the corridors of tradition and ruminate about the past ..

* - Thought everyone pays construction of the nation toward humanitarian Highness in his relations with others, conceived to others of the same telescope as the same consideration to .. Not a monopoly of salvation for himself and his doctrine, do not underestimate others thoughts ..

* - Construction of thought creates in the hearts of the children of the nation a constant balance between urban development on the one hand, and between Highness in values, principles and ethics on the other hand ..

* - Thought construction makes it the nation's history to mine industry intellectual visions calendar mechanisms constructive towards the future, not mine industry doctrinal and sectarian masks that do not increase the nation's only fragmented ..

* - Construction makes the thought of the members of the nation able to king will change in the fate of social and cultural and political .. Varadthm no one يصادرها, and transcends to be a stick of Moses, peace be upon him, which beat industriously creating miracles, do not stick beaten out by Pharaoh to see Pharaoh, above all miracles ..

And so on .. The nation, which suffered from the production of thought and civilization-making, distance itself from participating in drawing up the movement of history, and decide - whether I learned it or did not know - post sons of animals out of the yard this date ..
