Relations between religion and science entered a new phase after the development of information technology. Acceleration and expansion offered by information technology have developed in such a way that it affects human existence and how to do things in ways that were not thought of before. The progress implies that many of the existing understandings, social practices and norms are in a position of necessity to contest, adapt, and even change. If not, then we will miss many things both opportunities and roles. Furthermore, if this development is not adequately anticipated, we may not only fail to anticipate contemporary challenges but also fail to understand the complexity of reality. In the field of scientific studies, the above phenomena have received numerous and varied responses from many circles. In relation to the relationship between religion (Islam), science, and technology, many scientific studies have been conducted as richly as possible, and have produced interesting findings. In acknowledgment of the pressures between science and religion, and an inquiry about progressively enters value-laden areas, propositions have been made for researchers to lock in with other communities on the moral, lawful, and social suggestions of science and innovations and for the ‘public voice’ to be brought into the developmental stages of decision-making. Such measures, it is contended, ought to result in socially reasonable ways for logical advancement.
