Overview

Today, atheism has accrued popularity as a worldview which competes aggressively with Islam in particular. It is the need of the hour that advanced studies in atheism and Islam ought to be pursued in order to defend Islam from atheists, humanists, liberals and people in general who criticize Islam from a largely conflicting, atheistic interpretations of Islam – praxeological, spiritual, modern and scientific perspectives – and continue to permeate atheism, launching detrimental attacks on Islam and Muslim identity across the globe.

The goal is to create a generation of the expert Muslim scholars, academics, Ulama who will have advanced knowledge and understanding of atheism, atheistic concepts and the skills to spiritually and academically condemn anti-Islam rhetoric, defend Islam, address or resolve aesthetic issues which confront the Muslim world today.
