Scientific Studies Association (ILEM) contributes to the production of an authentic understanding of science and original scientific approaches. Having performed scientific studies for over a decade, the Association provides a basis for the education of scientists who will carry the scientific tradition forward based upon the wealth of ideas and tradition of Muslim communities. ILEM aims to contribute to the ongoing knowledge production throughout the world, through addressing various questions relating modernity, social sciences, arts, literature and theology. Through organising various reading groups, classes, seminars, workshops, summer schools, ILEM provides a platform on which these subjects can be discussed and understood together with Islamic sciences. Along with production of knowledge, ILEM places an equal importance on sharing of knowledge too; and for this reason day by day it carries its activities onto an international level, with various contributor organisations from all over the world.
