There have been two physical theories about the structure of the universe within the Islamic world, namely: Atomism (theory of atoms and accidents) and Hylomorphism (theory of matter and form). The former was generally adopted by Muslim theologians (Mutakallimeen), while the latter was the view attributed to Muslim philosophers (Falasifah). You may wonder what Islam has to do with physics? This video is dedicated to clarifying these two theories and their relevance to Muslims theology & metaphysics.
