This study was conducted due to the importance of information management and the expand of the information technology in today's world. The management and utilization of information and technology are essential prerequisite for any useful nation of development. It cannot be denied that information has now become the key commodity and chief raw material of contemporary society and in the course of our lives. We as Muslims are in need of the Islamic Knowledge in our society to ensure that we are in the right position with the right information. As technology is very hard to stop, it makes the world more prosperous and brings a great development. It is driven by lots of people hell-bent on increasing their prosperity. Social issues like health, education and environment create their own chain reactions that impacts governments, market and global companies just as they affect individuals. The new knowledge may bring scientific and technological changes in society. Some have far­ reaching effects on the very structure of society. Islam has to be re-understood in the light of new conditions of life. Failure to adjust to this change will result in progressive decline. Yet, Islam not only recognizes changes as real, but also urges Muslims to adjust to it.
