Abstract


The spirit of rationalism is often adopted by the group of Western-educated Muslim intellegensia. Furthermore, it became popular in the 19th century as was the case in India namely Syed Ameer Ali, one of the figures who advocate the spirit of rationalism. Syed Ameer Ali had been said to have made the philosophy of rationalism as the principle of his life in fighting for the true meaning of Islam. It also aims to rescue the Muslims  from the rut of the realm of  intellectual lethargy and emulate the intellectual awakening epitomized by the Abbasid empire. Therefore, this paper will discuss Syed Ameer Ali’s idea of discourse on Islamic thought based on his great works.
