A French convert to Islam, Dr Bruno is an astrophysicist and specialist in galaxy formation and evolution. He has also been listed in the top 500 influential Muslims in the world. Having published more than 140 papers and organised several conferences on science subjects, Bruno also serves as Director of the Observatory of Lyon. Besides, he has published more than 60 papers, specifically on Islamic theology and mysticism. Serving now as the Director of the Islamic Institute for Advanced Studies, he has been organizing many interfaith dialogues and conferences worldwide and conducting various television programs on the area. Dr. Bruno was kind enough to spend some time with me when he visited the International Institute for Islamic Thought and Civilization (ISTAC) at Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia in November 2013. During his insightful conversation, he talked about various aspects of science, Islamic sciences, ethics, mystic nature of science, contemplation in light of Qur’an, scientific presentation of religion, and the language of science. Its Malayalam translation was published in Thelitcham Monthly in 2014. Still, it is the apt time to publish this original English version while the negative vibes are spreading from Bruno’s native country, France. No doubt, his words are still as relevant as when he talked seven years ago.
