Scope and Subjects of the Symposium

It is very important to learn how Islamic sciences started and how they developed in the first centuries. In order to see the point reached in the later periods and today and to understand how it has evolved, it is necessary to know the emergence and development process well.
In order to enable some determinations about how and under which conditions Islamic sciences emerged and what kind of process it followed, we are dealing with the first century of Islamic sciences and the centuries after that, as a series of international symposiums, with the subheading "Islamic Sciences Through Centruies". In this framework, we examine each century in a separate symposium, discuss the Islamic sciences of that century as a whole and try to bring them up to date. With this, we aim to reveal how the basic Islamic sciences emerged, how they developed, what subjects they started, what course they followed, how much they overlap with the issues we know today, whether they have anything to do with some problems we live in as the Islamic world today, in the historical process or whether there are some breaks, changes, differentiations in any place, and thus to contribute to Islamic science, culture and civilization. 
We also try to determine that In which centuries, in terms of Islamic sciences, more scientific activities and services were presented, which centuries were richer and brighter in terms of scientific activities, in which centuries scientific studies were weak and insufficient; what is the relationship between the rich or weak scientific activities with the general course of those centuries, administration, politics and socio-cultural situations, how social conditions play a role in the decrease and increase of scientific activities, their quality or weakness; under which conditions sciences diversified and enriched, which conditions regressed scientific studies, whether scientific services and activities have a relationship with geographical regions and factors such as people, climate and nature in those regions, if scientific activities diversified and enriched in any region in any century, what factors were effective in this.


Previous Studies 
In 2019, we tried to reveal the birth, establishment and blooming of Islamic sciences in the first century of Hijri with the title of “Islamic Sciences Through Centruies: International Symposium of the First Century of Hijrah”. In the birth and discovery of Islamic sciences, we tried to show the place and role of the Prophet and the his Companions. Likewise, in this century, we tried to show the position and influence of the scholars belonging to the Followers generation (tâbiûn) in the development of Islamic sciences. We have tried to highlight the developments that took place in this century, their causes, consequences and their reflections on the next centuries. Around 180 papers in Turkish, Arabic and English were sent to the symposium from 16 different countries. Since it is not possible to present all of them in two days, 50 papers selected according to various criteria were presented on 24-25 October 2019 at the conference halls of Istanbul University Faculty of Theology with the participation of a large number of listeners. The papers were published as an e-book under the name of Islamic Sciences in the First Century of Hijri (Istanbul: Ensar Publications, 2020, 2 volumes) in the form of an edited book after being passed through the referee process. 
We continued this activity, which we took a break in 2020 due to the pandemic, in 2021 with the title of “Islamic Sciences Through Centruies: International Symposium of The Place of the Second Century Hijri in the Formation of Islamic Sciences”, and we covered the developments in the field of Islamic sciences in this century. In the first thirty-five years of this century, the influence of the Tabiun generation continues. After them comes the generation of Followers of the followers (tebe-ü tâbiîn), who grew up at their knees. We examined the contribution of all these to the development of Islamic sciences. We examined Imam Abu Hanifa and Imam Malik, who are among the most important figures of this century, and their scientific activities. We revealed the sects that emerged in this period, their effects on the following periods, the scholars who came to the fore in fields such as tafsir, hadith, fiqh, theology, akaid, mysticism, Arabic language and rhetoric, recitation, sirah, Islamic history, history of religions, their works and their effects in various aspects. We tried to introduce the first founding texts written in these fields and the founding persons who gave life to these texts with various studies. In addition, we tried to deal with the mihne incident and translation activities, which are important matters due to their emergence in this century. There was great interest in this symposium. Around 100 papers were sent from 14 different countries in Turkish, Arabic and English. The symposium, in which 62 papers were presented due to the pandemic, was held online on October 22-23, 2021. Some papers were published as an e-book under the name of Islamic Sciences in the Second Century of Hijri (Ankara: IKSAD Publications, 2022, 5 volumes) after passing through the referee process.

In 2022, it is aimed to examine various sciences in terms of the third century Hijri with the title of International Symposium on the Role of the Third Century Hijri in the Development of Islamic Sciences.
