Two important matters are what attracted our attention in your (distinguished) research: 1.Transform “strategic planning” concept from a narrow domain to the concept of establishments management and from a middle domain to the most wide and deep domain, the whole Islamic World… 2.The importance of working on a useful idea you rose: “The importance of developing an interactive social website for the purpose of achieving interconnection and coordination among different parties…

It implies a deepened awareness of high level goals and target points. If we adopt and try to implement such a plan, it will undoubtedly create deepened awareness in our organizations and Muslim Nations of the methodology of civilization development. It will also lead Islamic status-quo to become a model for the Islamic World and to get out from under accumulated historical backwardness.

“The scholar Abbas Al-Humaid attempts to provide a focused vision for a well-developed awareness of the religion among future generations. It connects them with the components of the religious system, allowing them to form a vocabulary to talk about religious issues in an interconnected way in the context of the various layers of Islam. This, it is widely believed, is what is sorely needed to enable believers to understand religion as an integrated entity, without dividing it into its component parts and separating them from the context of the Islamic system."

We therefore recommend that the book should be viewed as a synthesis of Islamic unity and a pillar of the link between the components of the Islamic nation. It is not exaggerating to say that the introduction of such a book into curricula of the educational institutions of the Islamic world will be a lifeline for the students

“A high quality, distinguished work. What particularly sets it apart is that it considers the Islamic dimension and the divine curriculum that Allah was seeking to establish by sending the Great Prophet Muhammad (PBUHF). The theses presented in this book—which are of great importance in this time and place—offer a rare chance for people to perceive and understand this curriculum.”

“A successful venture. The wording is elegant, the goal of the curriculum is clear and worthy, and the style is highly compatible with its specific goal. I ask God to facilitate this curriculum so that this generation of Muslims may develop awareness of their identity and their position in civilization." I hope that this book will help create an awareness of religion that places it in its systemic context, while at the same time raising our level of thinking in dealing with religious issues, in an age when humanity needs faith and morals more than ever before."

“I read Abbas Al-Humaid’s “The Islamic Intellectual Framework” closely and with deep reflection and found it more than adequate for the purpose for which it was developed: as a method of foundational religious teaching. Indeed, it represents a wonderful response to the need of the religious arena for the existence of curricula that advance religious thought as a coherent and integrated system, in clear academic language and an attractive contemporary style. Among the advantages of this worthy approach are its presentation of visions and ideas inspired by the verses of the Holy Quran—aimed at strengthening the Quranic culture and attesting to its origins—and citations of the hadiths and narrations of the Messenger of Allah (PBUHF), the imams, and the words of scholars and thinkers. The evaluation questions at the end of each topic have been carefully chosen to help students understand the ideas and develop their capacity for analysis and discussion.”
