Islam and Civilisational Renewal has been in publication ever since the establishment of IAIS Malaysia in 2008. When we started with this choice of name for our flagship journal, our main objective was to broaden the scope and horizons of the Islamic discourse that had been unduly narrowed down during the closing decades of twentieth century and ever since. The post-Islamic resurgence and fundamentalist discourse focused on concerns relating to fiqh issues, mannerisms, food, personal appearance and dress, while paying scant attention to the broader themes and objectives of Islamic civilisation, such as justice, human dignity, good governance, poverty eradication, economic development and education. ICR was launched with this admittedly broad and challenging agenda of widening the scope and horizons of the discourse on Islamic civilisation, its objectives and values.
