The Islamic view can only be applied on the humanities, and only there can the western and Arab Islamic cultures merge.”
Al-Sayyed Al Amine also adds saying: “The Islamic society however is in need of increased levels of education to elevate Islamic thinking to higher ranks, where these countries may become producers. Most of this depends on the aspect of development and its enhancement. The more that is invested in development, the more society demands higher levels of knowledge and education to sustain this economic development and growth.
