It discusses Muslim’s definitions of knowledge and education in terms of faith and progress, and the ways that they distinguished worldly from religious subjects and promoted the teaching of both. Muslim reformers, particularly modernist but also traditionalist, were open to new developments in educational subjects, vocabularies, and technology, as long as they did not see any violation of their understanding of Islam. Islamic modernity was manifested as a combination of faith and reason, and as a mixture of the traditional and the modern, and a combination of the religious and the worldly.
