In spite of the dissimilarities in this (religious) customs as well as ways of life, a number of elements in religious conviction continue being the similar. The research will therefore wrap up how religious traditions depict in addition to promoting the rapport with the divine, the sacred time, the sacred space or the natural world, as well as the relationship with each other. This paper will also review key critical issues in the study of religion and references to specific religious traditions will be made. The journey into understanding religion begins with understanding divinity and what some religions consider to be divine. Divine or as some call it diversity is the authority, mortal, or monarchy acknowledged by devout people to be at the central part of subsistence as well as to encompass an alternative upshot on their existence as well as fates.
In the previous years, people trusted in divinity to be of assistance in giving details on usual incidences in that it could not be depended on in explaining incidences like earthquakes, eclipses, eruptions like the volcano and even hurricanes. On the other hand, the modern man keeps on using divinity to elucidate paranormal phenomenon which is regularly known to be miracles. For instance: unexpected as well as entire recuperation from an illness or existence menacing situation, escaping a deadly catastrophe. In all those lay down situations a conviction of heavenly or divine intercession was principally accountable for their origins as well as end results.

From an , science, the study of nature, is well thought out to be connected to the notion of Tawhid meaning the Oneness of God, as it exists in various twigs of acquaintance. Muzaffar Iqbal (2007) the nature of Islam has never been seen as unique entity, but to a certain extent as an essential fraction of Islam’s holistic point-of-view on Almighty God, humankind, as well as the globe. This connection brings into picture a sacred feature to the search of systematic acquaintance by Muslims, as scenery itself is highlighted in their holy book of Qur’an as a signs of assemblage showing the Divine, Toshihiko Izutsu (1964) .It was out of this perceptive that science was taken into consideration and absorbed in this branch of religion (Islamic) civilizations, distinctively at some point in the 8-16 centuries.
As per nearly all historians, the contemporary methodical technique was primary growth by Islamic scientists, initiated by Ibn Al-Haytham, acknowledged to the west as “Alhazen,” Rosanna Gorini (2003). Robert Briffault, in The Making of Humanity, emphasizes that the very way of life of science, as undertaken in this current sense is entrenched in the methodological thought as well as acquaintance that sprung up in Islamic enlightening by then.

on the other hand, the possession taking of power by the western countries as well as their obliteration of this religion’s (Islamic) methodical custom strained the dissertation of Islam along with Science to this novel era. Organizations that had been there since time in memorial Muslim vicinity were damaged as well as substituted by novel scientific organizations put into practice by the western countries that possesses power to suit their economic as well as military gain. This radically twisted the performance of science in this religion (Muslim) world, as these scientists had to interrelate with the civilized move towards to methodical knowledge, which was rooted on an attitude of scenery totally alien to them. As of the time of this preliminary mayhem of the Islamic methodical custom to the modern day, Muslim scientists along with researchers have come up with a range of perspectives on the position of methodical learning contained by the circumstance of Islam, none of which are unanimously conventional or proficient. Nevertheless, the majority uphold the outlook that the attainment of information along with scientific chase in broad-spectrum is not in disaccord by means of Islamic contemplation as well as religious conviction.
Consequently, spiritual persons are pious in the sagacity that they have no uncertainty of the importance as well as haughtiness of those supernatural intention as well as purposes neither needed nor are competent of lucid establishment. They are present with the similar requirement as well as wryness as they themselves. In this sagacity religion is a time in of human race to turn out to be obviously as well as totally wide awake of these principles along with aims in addition to persistently to build up as well as expanding their consequence. If solitary envisions of religion as well as discipline as per to these descriptions then a disagreement involving them turned out to be impossible.
