Letter to the Editor: “The Light” Dispels Doubts and Clears Conflicts between Faith and Science

by Mohammad Shafii

The Light (Pakistan), 8th January 1980 Issue (Vol. 60, No. 1, p. 6)

Respected Dr. Sahib [Dr. Allah Bakhsh],

Your leader in ‘The Light’ of Decem­ber 24, 1979, on the ‘Mystic and the Scientist’ was very illuminating. In a brief but convincing manner you have summed up the situation pertaining to science and religion (of Islam) in such a way that a vague and not-too-clear mind like that of mine has understood that there is no conflict between a scientist and a true mystic as far as the realities are concerned. You write so beautifully. May Allah reward you for serving the cause of Islam so well.

I would like to call on you and pay my respects personally. I pray for your health and long life.

Yours sincerely,
Mohammad Shafii
