    Abstract This paper examines the journey of Islamic philosophy in various schools to explore how it deals with the fundamental concepts of Islam within deistic circles. The fundamental concepts of Islam are unity of God, the prophethood, and the resurrection. This paper also takes a look at the position of religion in Islamic philosophy. I present a distinction between theism and deism and then try to illustrate how classical Muslim philosophers work within deism and interpret Islamic ideas accordingly. We will see a wide, historical survey of all Islamic schools of philosophy including peripatetic, illuminative, and transcendental. Based on an analytical and historical method the paper proves that this philosophy possesses a rich color of deism with a slight disposition toward theism. While focusing on primary sources, we also consider some secondary sources in Islamic philosophy.
