Abstract

ʿAbd ar-Raḥmān ’s understanding of modernity as an objective essence, “as values
and principles”, common to every culture and nation, with ceaselessly changing expression
throughout history, makes a path toward Islamic modernity with its unique historical
experience and spiritual tradition. Therefore, the role of translation is crucial for the
preservation of tradition and reconnection with the past as well as its constant renewal, and
as a relevant aspect of the conceptualization of modernity.
