After the Greek philosophy had entered into Islamic worlds and Islamic rationalism movement had begun, skepticism about the truth of Islamic revelation was developed therein. Hence Muslim philosophers such as al-Farabius were on to resolve the resulting conflict between the Islamic revelation and reason. Thus, the first rational interpretation of revelation was introduced by al-Farabius and the theory was later evolved by Avicenna.
In this article, al-Farabius’ theory of Islamic revelation and its related prerequisites, such as types of intellects and other human faculties have been discussed first, and then whatever changes to the theory made by Avicenna is taken into consideration, and finally some criticisms are raised against the theory.
