Islamic culture, which is still vigorous in spite of its great antiquity, set out to develop side by side a vision of the individual and of the universe, a philosophy and an art of living that can be seen in the impressive remains of its heritage that is an essential part of the whole of humankind's. Halted for a time by adverse historical conditions, this culture none the less found the strength within itself to re-emerge. Its fidelity to its roots does not prevent it from keeping up with the times and participating in contemporary forums and the stirring dialogue of cultures. This series of volumes on the manifold facets of Islamic culture is intended to acquaint a very wide public with such matters as: the theological bases of the faith and principles that constitute the bedrock of the overall structure; the status of the individual and of society in the Islamic world; the expansion of Islam since the Revelation: the Arab, Asian, African and European spheres espousing the new faith and the way in which the rights of converted peoples have been upheld; the vital contribution of Islamic civilization to the adventure of human knowledge in science and technology; the educational and cultural manifestations of Islamic civilization in literature, the visual arts and architecture; finally, Islam today between loyalty to its past and the inescapable conquest of modernity.

Peter Adamson presents the first full history of philosophy in the Islamic world for a broad readership. He traces its development from early Islam to the 20th century, ranging from Spain to South Asia, featuring Jewish and Christian thinkers as well as Muslim. Major figures like Avicenna, Averroes, and Maimonides are covered in great detail, but the book also looks at less familiar thinkers, including women philosophers. Attention is also given to thephilosophical relevance of Islamic theology (kalam) and mysticism--the Sufi tradition within Islam, and Kabbalah among Jews--and to science, with chapters on disciplines like optics and astronomy. The first partof the book looks at the blossoming of Islamic theology and responses to the Greek philosophical tradition in the world of Arabic learning, the second discusses philosophy in Muslim Spain (Andalusia), and a third section looks in unusual detail at later developments, touching on philosophy in the Ottoman, Mughal, and Safavid empires.

This book intended to identify that the truth about Al-Aqsa mosque; the truth in the Noble Qur'an, in the Hadith (Islamic monotheism); the status of Al-Aqsa from previous, history from the built to the date, the conflict and struggle on; the view of Islamic world on Al-Aqsa; and Al Quds in general. Further, it has identified the Jews and Shia's view about Al-Aqsa, identified that the redline of Al-Aqsa for the Muslim ummah. Al-Aqsa Mosque is the entire piece of land surrounded by the walls. Part of the Mosque's western wall (Al-Buraq wall) was confiscated by Israel in 1967 through the help of Britain and called Wailing Wall of Jewish shrine. The Mosque's plateau is largely an open-air area with limited structures including the main prayer building at southern side (Qibla direction) of the compound and the golden dome at its central rock. My worry is not only about Al-Aqsa's failure under the Jewish, but it is also due to that the Israelis government has declared to ban the call for prayer; if Al-Aqsa has failed under Israelis state, we will unable to hear Adhan from our beloved of Al-Aqsa again for ever! Therefore, if this happened, we will never have a guarantee to hear also Adhan from the rest of mosques in Medina and Mecca as well as the rest of the mosques wherever in the surface of the earth.
