The need for reformation of Islamic sciences has been felt since two centuries ago. It is a basic fact that the thing that western civilization has affected the most is the education system. This division, i.e. modern sciences and Islamic sciences also proved to be the result of these effects. Due to the education of Madrasahs, the heart was inclined towards Islam, but the mind and consciousness gradually got affected by higher modern education. From here, the purpose is clear, that is to develop Western ideas and theories and to fulfill only material desires. He called this division of education the main reason for the downfall of Muslims. In the recent past, some Muslim thinkers have tried to reform the Islamic education system. Some of these thinkers have talked about finding a solution by including western ideas in this curriculum and have taken some practical steps. For the first time, Syed Jamal-ud-Din Afghani felt the need. Some such changes have occurred in the modern era, due to which there is a need for the formation of medieval sciences. After Afghani, the scholars started the process of modernizing traditional sciences. In this context, two of Afghani's students gained extraordinary fame at the world level, among them Mufti Abdah of Egypt (1905 AD) and Maulana Shibli Naumani (1914 AD) of India.

Attempts to reorganize Islamic sciences have been criticized and in some cases have faced severe opposition. In this article, the results of the efforts of Muslim thinkers in the re-organization of Islamic sciences were reviewed.
