International Conference on:
“Renaissance Questions on the 70th Anniversary of the Publication of The Conditions of the Renaissance by Malik bin Nabi”
February 2-4, 2019, Doha, Qatar
How do societies and nations rise and achieve a leading position and influence civilizations? How do they fall and become humiliated and culturally subordinated? Why did Muslim societies lose their past glories? What are the consequences? How can these societies regain them?
These are the crucial questions of the important reference book, The Conditions of the Renaissance, which was published more than 70 years ago by the prominent thinker Malik bin Nabi, who was concerned with the conditions of the renaissance of contemporary Muslim societies and the threats posed by the materialistic and imperialistic contemporary Western civilization.
On the occasion of the 70th anniversary of the book’s publication, the Faculty of Islamic Studies at Hamad Bin Khalifa University is pleased to announce the convening of this international conference for an inclusive, in-depth and integrated evaluation of the book and also a comprehensive academic dialogue and debate on the Renaissance project within the global laws (Sunan) that bin Nabi adhered to and incorporated in his methodology and systematic study of the intellectual, cultural, social and civilizational phenomena.
The organizers hope the conference will be a platform for scholars, thinkers and researchers to study Bin Nabi’s intellectual project, carry out a progressive evaluation of the project and its thesis, and envisage the prospects for its development. This helps our societies move from an unsystematic and partial handling of their renaissance problems to the scientific approach based on the enactment of God’s global laws (Sunan) in our past, present and future. Ultimately, changing the reality of Muslim societies towards achieving sovereignty and independence, civilizational leadership, and restoring their vibrant role in the international community.
