11a Religion Is Based on Transmitted Knowledge
When Muslim philosophers discussed the distinction between these two sorts of knowing, it was often because they wanted to distinguish between knowledge transmitted from prophetic revelation and knowledge discovered by self-recognition.
What most people call ‘religion,’ after all, is based entirely on transmitted knowledge. Religion offers a worldview and a manner of living traced back to a divine intervention in history. We know about it because it has been transmitted to us.

 However, religion is lived, so it is ’dynamic,’ there has to be an exchange of the naqli and the `aqli, otherwise it will only be a shell.
 The divine intervention is at every moment and never stops.
