Abstract

This paper addresses the subject of “Comparing the Image of Man between the Islamic and Western Sources” by uncovering the principles that define this image in the Quran and Sunnah, namely, his thoughts, instincts, beliefs and deeds. This is because Man (according to Abdul-Hamid Ibn Badis) is composed of intellect, instincts, beliefs, and deeds, which are all placed in the physical part of the perishable body, and the remaining nontangible part is the soul. Therefore, based on these elements, Man either rises or falls.
This paper also establishes this Quranic concept of Man as a criterion for comparison and measurement while tracing the history of the concept of Man and uncovering some of the various types of distortions that have afflicted this concept. The objective is to remind humanity of the necessity of preserving what is left of the human instinct and to save the human civilization from “disorder, disaster and destruction (Nursi)”.
The paper attempts to explore the ways in which the concept of Man may be restored, as well as ways to improve this concept before its essence deteriorates irreversibly.
