The exploration of Islamic heritage is a powerful resource for thinking about Islam as both historical and cultural phenomenon. Understanding Islamic history carries out significant implications for the investment of Islamic heritage, especially with regards to the emphasis on the diverse range of powerful Islamic legacies. Today, the obscurity surrounding Muslim cultural and civilizational heritage prevented the young Muslims from making informed decisions about their futures and has further hindered them from fully realizing their past intellectual roles as producers and masters of culture, art, science and civilization.
This critical gap in the understanding and appreciation of Muslim intellectual heritage and its significance role for the intellectual exchange of past cultures and civilizations often lead to distorted perceptions, images and narratives, and fatal misconceptions about Islamic culture and civilization. Particularly, Muslim youth living in non-Muslim contexts make no exception to this dilemma, as they continue to live alienated as they are from the cultural and intellectual contexts of historically Muslim regions.
Today the appreciation of the Islamic legacy through its heritage is crucial than ever and is necessary towards re-imagining a better and much prosperous future.
