One of his “major concerns was the self-sufficiency of the intellect. Al-Razi’s development of Kalam Islamic scholastic theology led to the evolution and tqfsir of theology among Muslims. Razi had experienced different periods in his thinking, affected by the Ash’ari school of thought and later by al-Ghazali. The most important instance showing the synthesis of Al-raiz thought may be the problem of the eternity of the world and its relation to God.


He tried to reorganize the arguments of theologians and philosophers on this subject, collected and critically examined the arguments of both sides.

He considered, for the most part, the philosophers’ argument for the world’s eternity stronger than the theologians’ position of putting emphasis on the temporal nature of the world.

The arguments of the philosophers dala’il al-falasifah for establishing that the world is one are weak, flimsy arguments founded upon feeble premises. Al-Razi rejected the Aristotelian and Avicennian notions of a single universe revolving around a single world.

He describes their main arguments against the existence of multiple worlds or universes, pointing out their weaknesses and refuting them. This rejection arose from his affirmation of atomismas advocated by the Ash’ari school of Islamic theologywhich entails the existence of vacant space in which the atoms move, combine and separate [ citation needed ]. He discussed more on the issue of the void — the empty spaces between stars and constellations in the universethat gafsir few or no stars — in greater detail in volume 5 of the Matalib.
