خصائص قرآنی - تفسیری تناظر میں

مصنف/مصنفین: بشارت، طاہرہ، حافظ محمد عبد اللہ

The Qur'an has innumerable features. Its teachings serve as blessing and guidancefor the whole mankind. It provides complete code oflifefor man. It catersfor both life in the present world and that in the hereafter. The Qur'an is regarded as inimitable due to the accuracy ofscientific information presented 1400 years ago and only recently proven or discovered, as well as for its unprecedented Arabic literary style of highest standard. This article discusses extraordinary features of the Qur'an as explained and highlighted by majority of commentators of the Qur’an in their commentaries of the Qur'an.

وكالت كی شرعی حیثیت

مصنف/مصنفین: احمد، رشید

ABSTRACT: Islam emphasizes on the establishment of a just society and it is the foremost duty of every Muslim to strive for that. A society can experience peace as long as justice prevails therein; it faces problems only when injustice becomes order of the day. Justice or injustice is the byproduct of human behavior and interaction which at times lead to disputes and conflicts. Justice needs settlement of disputes and conflicts. For that matter it is necessary for judicial system to be in place. The present paper represents a humble attempt to explain and analyze judicial system as developed by the umntah

علم و تربیت كا باہمی ربط و تعلق

مصنف/مصنفین: القیوم، حافظ محمد عبد

Education and practical orientation are both significantly interlinked. Education without practical training stands mere theory having no connection with life. Practical orientation without education carries no meaning. Islamic system of life seeks to espouse both education and training. The Prophet (s. a. w.) educated his people theoretically as well as trained them practically. What ever he did in this regard constitute Islamic principles for human life. Curricula of educational institutions need to be developed with a view to making students knowledgeable on the one hand and upholders ofIslamic virtues in their practical life on the other. The present paper is aimed at highlighting the co-relationship between the education and practical orientation, proving beyond doubt that isolation of one from the other is too damaging to imagine

اسلام اور ہندو مذہب كا موازنہ

مصنف/مصنفین: فاروق، حسین

Man's struggle, it seems, revolves most of the time around his natural urges for food and sex. Most of the crimes on the earth are caused by these two forces. That is why every religion attempts to address and regulate these forces within man. Islam seeks to control and regulate these forces through sawm ({'**’) while Hinduism does the same through barat (&J) The present paper represents an attempt to make comparative analysis of Islam and Hinduism from that angle so as to highlight religious sanctions, individual and collective ramifications of these two religious practices.

أدب القصة القرآنية

مصنف/مصنفین: اسلام، صاحب

Historical narratives of Prophets and nations in the Qur’an constitute a vital component in the revelation. These narratives could be studied, deliberated over, and investigated into from various angles such as religious, socio-political, historical. Besides messages of various natures, these historical narratives have literary value. If studied from literary angle, these historical narratives will stand highlighted in terms of coherence among words, styles of presentation, as well as diction. The literary dimension of the entire Qur’an including its parables and historical narratives make the Qur’an inimitable hence wonderfully effective and fascinating to the reader.

موقف الاصولیین من افعال النبیینﷺ

مصنف/مصنفین: الغفور، فضل الرحمن عبد

The Prophet (s. a. w.) was after all a human being with perfect human nature; whatever he did in his daily life represented human nature. All of his unanimously authentic doings have been classified by legal theorists into two major categories, the doings allowed to the Prophet (s. a. w.) alone with the exclusion of his followers and the doings that were meant to explain particular apparently ambiguous sayings. The latter category is further divided into two other categories: ( I) those acts of the Holy Prophet which explicitly refer to its explanatory nature, and (r) those acts whose explanatory nature is confirmed by other source. Islamic legal theorists have unanimity over the legal status of all categories of the Prophet’s (s. a. w.) acts. Certain acts of the Prophet (s. a. w.) are mandatoryfor him but non-mandatory for his followers; certain other acts are lawful for the Prophet (s. a. w.) but unlawfulfor believers; some acts are obligatory for the believers; and some acts of the Prophet (s. a. w.) are mere supererogatory. There are some acts of the Prophet (s. a. w.) on which legal theorists have not said anything concerning their legal status. The present paper represents an analysis of the views of legal theorists about the acts ofthe Prophet (s. a. w.) .

Prophet Sulaymén: An Analytical Study of Biblical Literature and the Qur’an

Author: Sadia, Haleema, Mursal Farman
ABSTRACT: The Bible and the Qur’an are both replete with historical narratives related to previous nations, groups, individuals, and prophets. Both the sources have described, among others, Prophet Sulayman from various angles. These descriptions of Prophet Sulayman in the two great Scriptures are not similar everywhere. There are dissimilarities too. What are the similarities and dissimilarities between Biblical descriptions of Prophet Solomon and Qur’anic descriptions of Prophet Sulayman? This question has been addressed in the present paper with critical overtones.

The Origin and Evolution of Sufism

Author: Khanam, Farida
ABSTRACT: The early Sufis believed that there were two dimensions to the revelations received by the Prophet, words of the Qur’an in their appearance, and the divine inspiration in his heart. This divinely inspired knowledge in the heart, Sufis claim, was gifted to only a chosen few, who contemplated and longedfor nearness with the creator. The early Sufis also laid emphasis on one of the basic tenets of Islam i. e. ihsan. Ihsan is that level of devotion where the devotee is completely absorbed in the worship of God. The ultimate aim of the Sufis is to raise the level of ihsan to experience the presence ofGod. Since the Last Prophet (s. a. w.) was paragon of virtues including ihsan, it was assumed that Sufism or Tasawwuf originatedfrom the Prophet himself. This paper aims to focus on the point of origin of tasawwuf, on the one hand and the need for its revival, on the other.

Sayyid Ahmad Shahid’s Role in Islamic Revivalism: A Critique

Author: Khan, Abdullah
Abstract: The emergence of Sayyid Ahmad Shahid on the political horizon of Muslim India in the early 19th century synchronized with the loss of Muslim political power. This loss led to departure of the Muslim community from Islam in its pristine purity. Sayyid Ahmad Shahid embarked upon the gigantic task of reviving Muslim enthusiasm toward the pristine Islam. The overbearing theme of what Sayyid Ahmad Shahid stood for amounted to the saying ‘back to the Qur‘an and ‘back to the traditions of the Prophet (s. a. w.) \ By that time the Mughal rulers were too weak to effect any meaningful change. Muslim religious scholars like Sayyid Ahmad rose to the occasion. Sayyid Ahmad, like other scholars, devoted his energy to diagnose the malaise of the Indian Muslims, on the one hand and tried to identify solution to the problems in Islam, on the other. He came to conclusion that changes could be brought about if Muslims reformed their ways. For that matter he preferred social Jihad, which was originally intended to purify or purge Islam of accretions from
