The Heights of Meta-science of Tawhid

  • Masudul Alam Choudhury

Abstract

The Qur’an and its medium of conveying through Sunnah and learned discourse towards learning the truth of Tawhidi law altogether are mediums of divine mercy and instruction for humankind in meta-science of Tawhid and its evolving thought-provoking subtleties of the generality and details of the world-system. The greatest gift in such a rise of human potential is knowledge of unity of being and becoming of the oneness of ‘everything’ in and across world-systems. This possibility is of the greatest potential for security, deepening strength, and overarching span of knowledge and thought. The fact that these gifts emanate from the abiding resilience of the Tawhidi law is sufficient confirmation for sustaining peace, confidence, and freedom by the flight of knowledge. The resulting human resource development and the emerging constructs, such as technology and economic, financial, and social stability, are much less costly and more wellbeing producing than the same pursuits by non-Tawhidi science. That is because the whole knowledge-inducing enterprise in the case of meta-science of Tawhid is of a natural absorbing kind and aimed at the advancement of the dynamic life-fulfilling regime of development. Such regimes are progressively enhancing human potentiality and wellbeing along the sustained historical path of productive and creative regeneration of dynamic advancement by complementarities of inter-causal developments between the good things of life.
