In Islamic world philosophy and philosophical sciences have been criticised theologians (mutakallimun) and religious lawyers (fuqaha) since they are thought to be harmful for the religion, because of their discussed topics and their origin is thought to be foreign. Because of the mentioned reason, in Islamic society, the legality of philosophy and philosophical sciences have olways been a topic of discussion. For this reason, thinkers who are interested in philosophy have had an intellectual effort to show its legality. It is possible to see these efforts? examples in the Works of Kindî, Farabi, Ibn Sina (Avicenna) and Ibn Rushd (Averroës). The same effort is seen in the works of Âmirî who lived in the 10th century. In this article we aim to show Âmirî's effort on philosophy and philosophical sciences is a legal struggle and olso to discuss what kind of arguments his struggle was based on and what are the logical results of his supported arguments.
