The book traces its historical background in which the concept and the movement were initially developed and clarifies some aspects of it.

It introduces the important institutions and pioneers who had identified the necessity of the movement and also contributed towards its conceptualization. It helps readers in identifying and articulating the central theme and facilitates them to better analyze, evaluate and comprehend the full range of 'Islamization of Knowledge'.
