Example text

The only thing that matters is a non-dimensionless analysis relating to the triple, Allah, the world-system and the Hereafter. The circular interrelationship in this is premised on the divine unity of knowledge. Hence, we are explaining the conception and knowledge-induced relations and measuring such relations rather than forms, to the extent that they can be measured in the world-systems. Otherwise, in the case of immeasurability of the relations, we exercise the institutional or abstract but impacting consequences of the primordial relations emanating from the premise of Allah and the Hereafter.

Contrarily, the epistemology of unity of knowledge as the continuing sensation in the relationship, “Tawhid to the world-system through the process of the consciously knowledge-induced world-systems,” as explained earlier, establishes the discursive process given by the conditions (1)–(7) mentioned above. This is the assertion of the methodology of self-referencing in the Qur an against falsification in Rationalism. In this regard, the Qur an says (42:53), “The Way of Allah to Whom belongs whatever is in the heavens and whatever is on earth.

There is no methodological possibility to bridge this gap of synthesis in Kant’s dichotomy between pure and practical reason. Heteronomy as a problem of lack of synthesis between pure and practical reason was pointed out by Carnap (1966). The Qur an refers to Rationalism as falsehood or meaningless speculation. On it, therefore, no truth and certainty can be premised. In this regard, the Qur an declares (51:8–11), “Truly you are in a doctrine discordant, through which are deluded (away from the Truth) such as would be deluded.
