Interplay or relationship between Islam and the societal development must be accorded significant recognition by the present generation. Through its social development, Islam is contextually defined as not only a religion or collection of rituals, but also a complete comprehensive way of life. It was revealed to cater for the relationship between man and God as well as man and the development of his environment. Islam transcends the spiritual sphere and permeates a spectrum of human endeavours. It has made indelible contributions to the educational, cultural, social, welfare and political development of mankind individually and generally.
