Üsküdar University Founding President Prof. Nevzat Tarhan, underlined the need for the wisdom of Kelam today and state the following: “Materialism has collapsed and Western civilization is in crisis. Divorces, crimes, suicides and violence increased. The West cannot produce a solution to these issues. That is why the West needs the truths of the Holy Quran as much as we do. Therefore, İlm-i Kelam should be told to youngsters. One of the sources that best describes this wisdom is Risale-i Nur. It tells the youth through combining the science of religion and science. We will organize the 7th of these seminars this year.”
