Launching Muslim-Science.Com

Dear Colleagues and Friends:

Greetings! I hope this finds you in the best of health and spirits.

As some of you may know, I write Islam Analysis – the first and only regular column on Science in the Islamic World for a mainstream western science publication (SciDev.Net) and have had a blog by the name of Muslim-Science.Com for a little while now. I, and a number of colleagues have been contemplating transforming this into a regular journal and a portal for Islam and Science.

We have worked very hard to bring you Muslim-Science.Com. On the website you will find a number of very interesting features:





Science, Techology, Innovation, and Entrepreneurship are the engines that power today’s economies and the society.

In recent times, the discourse about science and innovation in the Islamic World has hovered between absolute rejection of religion, on one hand, to blind embrace on the other. It has also been theoretical and conjectural falling short of empirical rigor that science itself demands. The mainstream (western) scientific and innovation media does not provide enough coverage to emerging trends in the Muslim World.

Muslim-Science.Com is dedicated to the revival of science and science-driven innovation and entrepreneurship in the Islamic World by creating a space for an informed, inspiring, and unbiased dialogue about Science, Innovation, and Entrepreneurship in the Muslim Lands and by Muslims living elsewhere as well as important, but often overlooked issues of science, religion, and society in the Islamic World.

Please feel free to drop a line here (in comments) on our objectives and aspirations outlined in About Section or for that matter anything else that you care to write to us about. is managed by an Editorial Team which lead by an Editorial Committee. A distinguished Advisory Board of science and innovation leaders from across the Islamic World and elsewhere provides guidance and advice.

Please take the time to visit Muslim-Science.Com often, share with colleagues and friends from across the Islamic World and elsewhere, “Like”, Tell us what you think, Write to us (and for us) and Subscribe to the Newsletter on the Website.

Muslim-Science.Com is also looking for writers, contributors, correspondents, and champions across the Islamic World and elsewhere so if you’re one of those, please drop us a line.

Best Regards,

Athar Osama, PhD
Managing Editor, Muslim-Science.Com
for the Editorial Committee
