After several centuries of confrontation between Islam and the West, the question "What can be done to get rid of degeneration?” is the main concern for Muslim thinkers. Every thinker, by providing specific way, have on the head the concern of the revival of Muslim traditions, and thus a variety of solutions have emerged. One of these solutions belongs to Mohammed Abed al-Jabri, new rationalist thinker from Morocco. According to Abed al-Jabri, Muslim communities, due to the negligence of the tradition of Ibn Rushd and the lack of criticism in the past legacy, live in decadence and backwardness. Arabic wisdom (not necessarily Islamic intellect), has a particular structures that distinguishes it from Western sense. Relying on Islamic traditions and modern reading of the philosophy of Andalusia – especially Ibn Rushd- can answer the Muslim’s "What can be done to get rid of degeneration" question in the modern age. In his view, Ibn Rushd's thought, separated the religion and philosophy, and made the political and ideological tolerance desirable, saw criticism as a factor for prosperity, considered wisdom and religion having their own functions, and introduced wisdom as a tool for criticism. Thus, he believed it necessary to have a new reading of philosophy of Morocco and Andalusia to revive the intellectual traditions.
