As a renowned religious figure of the twentieth century, Bedi’uzzaman Sa’id Nursi has left a tremendous impact on different facets of Muslims’ religious life, not only in his country, Turkey but also in other parts of the Muslim world. The substantial reform in religious understanding that he brought to the Muslims particularly in Turkey through his powerful theological and spiritual framework especially in using contemporary empirical tool to prove spiritual and religious doctrines is reflective of his creative approach in addressing religious matters. This paper examines briefly how this framework of Nursi’s thought which is reflected in his masterpiece, Risale-i Nur could serve as a strong basis of a proper reconstruction of religious worldview.
