The main sources of classical or early Islamic philosophy are the religion of Islam itself. It derives its principles and inspirations from the sources of Islamic revelations (Quran and Hadith)

I'm not sure what you mean by 'islamic music' do you mean religious music directed at Muslims or do you mean middle eastern and arabic flavoured music?

maybe if you search it on google you will realize that it's called islamic philosophy because it's the muslims description of their opinion of philosophy. there's probably a reason their inspiration came from islamic revelation. CAUSE IT MAKES SENSE. do research. pple on yahoo won't help. trust me, sweetheart. LOVE YOU!!!!

Metaphysics is something through which you can justify anything. Islam is a clear Deen (Deen-e-Mubeen) and Quran is clear book (Kitabun Mubeen)

there may be good reasons, but the quote you offer is not a good one, more of an example of circular reasoning. To say that something is Islamic because it comes from Islamic sources, is like saying that something is Christian because it comes from Christian sources. not good logic.

Islamic people have certainly contributed a lot to civilisation... personally, I have nver denied that fact, as I am well known in the 'Homework Help' section, helping kids with their 'Al Jebra' but, that does not make the religion any less repressive, or any more true The great scientist, Isaac Newton, believed in alchemy and numerology....... scientific genius, does not make a person's religious beliefs true
