The science of `Umran was introduced by Ibn Khaldun in the 14th Century for the purpose of development. In the context of Islam, the development starts from the management of the lowest level, that is, man`s spiritual level, to a much higher level encompassing the community, country, and the world. In terms of man`s spiritual level, the management of his heart, intellect, and desires are the basic prerequisite for an Islamic-based development to transpire. The objective of the study is to identify the origins, role, and function of the science of `umran for the purpose of Islamic-based development. The focus of the study is the definition of `umran its role and function in revitalizing nation prosperity based on spiritual, mental and physical aspects which have not been studied and known yet. For these reasons people still fall prey to materialistic life i.e. “urbanization” and “modernization” and are influenced by the old methods without making any changes.
