Abstract

Angles in spite of their natural and racial superiority (light vs mud), adored Adam. It is indicative of the fact that nobility depends upon knowledge and intelligence rather than upon racial superiority. The entire universe is on disposal of man for salutary ends. However, knowledge is double edged sword, if it becomes instrument of power instead of finding truth; it leads to destruction and annihilation. To Quran, knowledge needs moral responsibility, which is sure recipe to power, peace and prosperity. Crisis of present civilization, the most evident of them in Noam Chomsky’s words: nuclear arsenals and climatic change are testimony to the fact that man has proved himself as an evolutionary error. Our attempt is to find intent and purpose of education in Islam. We are standing at the threshold of Third World War. Is it knowledge devoid of moral responsibility that has brought humanity at the precipice of imminent dangers of mutual assured destruction? Knowledge has become tool of imperial powers to satiate their unending pursuit of hegemony. What moral responsibility Quran attaches to Education, and what is be all and an end all of education; in this paper by literature review of Quran, Sunnah and historic formulations of scholars of Islam we would attempt to resolve this riddle.

Key words: education in Islam, knowledge, imperial powers, qur’anic testimony.
