Definition of Al-Attas on Islam as the true based on his affirmation of the relationship between science and religion; then Islamic science can be clearly defined. Khabar Sadiq (al-Qur'an and hadith) are very authoritative as a source of Islamic catalysts of the ever great Islamic civilization. Both are verified sources through a process of tafsir and ta'wil; using unique scientific transition scheme, namely sanad. The Islamic scientific transmissions have increasingly developed without interruption; to give birth to various kinds of interpretations also ta'wil . In fact both of them are catalysts for the emergence of Islamic-style science and technology. For this reason, al-Attas emphasized that the development of Islamic science and technology cannot be separated from the roots of interpretation and ta'wil , because both of them have taken root as a method of scientific transmission both fardhu 'ain and fardhu kifayah.
