This book looks at the Epistemological issues in the writings of three modern eminent Indian Muslims and critically examines their work in order to understand their thought on divine revelation and human source of knowledge. Threatened by the rapid spread of western through, which endangered the faith of educated young Indian Muslims these writers tried to defend Islam and show that Islam is not against and science. A close examination of their work shows that their Défense of Islam as rational and scientific religion became counter productive and stagnated their though. Among the three, Sir Sayyid Ahmad Khan alone made a bold attempt to reinterpret revelation quite close to the Muslim philosophers while Abul Kalam Azad and Abu al Ala Mawdudi stayed closer to the traditional Islamic understanding.
