Before the advent of the prophet Muhammad (ﷺ), the humanity was deeply engrossed in trouble. People had becom e thirsty of each other's blood. They used to fight for travails. They used to initiate wars which continued for years and years. They used to bury their daughters alive. Furthermore they had all social evils. Then Allah had pity on this misguided humanity and raised his beloved prophet Muhammad (ﷺ) from them and in them. Not to talk of others, his own blood relatives opposed him and his divinely religion. After him the line of truth and guidance continued by pious caliphates and companions. They had been spreading teaching of piety and proximity to Allah. Later the task of spreading piety and truth fell upon the shoulders of Auwliya -Karam. They had been promoting the message of their spiritual ancestors far and wide bringing people to the fold of Islam. Their message was the message of love, kindness and compassion. These pious people had been spreading the message of their spiritual ancestors in such a way that people began to be attracted towards them. They traveled widely for the preaching Marafat and Taqwa. Among such pious people, had lived a man in the Sub Continent named Molana Zia Ud Din Madani. He was the khalifa of Imam Ahmed Raza Khan Fazil-e-Brailvi. He was from the range of Qadriya. He also got khilafat from the range of Naqshbandiya. His Naqshbandi Sheikh lived at Madina Munawwara. He found the age of 108 years and spent it in the service of Allah’s deen. His disciples include Molana Ilyas Ahmed Qadri, the founder in chief of Dawat-e-Islami. Molana Zia Ud Din Madani spent many years living in Madina spreading the message of his Sheikh. He passed away on 4th Zil Haj 1401 Hijri, 2nd October 1951. He was buried in Jannat ul Baqi. May Allah shower His immense blessings upon him and keep his grave brighten?</p> 2022-06-30T00:00:00+00:00 Copyright (c) 2022 The Islamic Culture "As-Saqafat-ul Islamia" الثقافة الإسلامية - Research Journal - Sheikh Zayed Islamic Centre, University of Karachi http://www.theislamicculture.com/index.php/tis/article/view/816 Rulings on relations with non-Muslims A comparative study of Tafsir Haqqani and Tafsir Majidi 2022-06-29T16:22:42+00:00 Prof. Dr. Muhammad Abdullah Abid IJAVED750@GMAIL.COM Javed Iqbal aairahtech@gmail.com Dr. Hafiz Ghulam Anwar Al-Azhari aairahtech@gmail.com <p>Islam is the religion of peace, religious tolerance, brotherhood, independence and humanity.In Islamic history,we found mutual peaceful existence between Muslims&nbsp;and non-muslims fourteen centuries ago. .Allah Almighty does not forbid Muslims from dealing justly with those who do not fight Islam or oppress Muslims. Indeed, He enjoins Muslims to do favors for them. Obviously, doing favors is more than just dealing justly, because it gives people more than what they deserve.As mentioned above, the ultimate goal of Islam is to establish peace and to bring about happiness for all beings in both this world and the eternal one in the hereafter.In case some people refuse to cooperate in achieving peace and happiness in the hereafter, Muslims should still cooperate with them to maintain peace and happiness in this world. This article describes the above said notion in light of two famous Interpretations of Holy Quran ; Tafseer e Majidi and Tafseer e Haqani. Both the interpretations are replete with examples of relationship with non muslim in light of Holy Quran and Sunnah.</p> 2022-06-29T00:00:00+00:00 Copyright (c) 2022 The Islamic Culture "As-Saqafat-ul Islamia" الثقافة الإسلامية - Research Journal - Sheikh Zayed Islamic Centre, University of Karachi http://www.theislamicculture.com/index.php/tis/article/view/818 A comparative study of the rights of women in Universal Declaration of Human right with the Islamic Family system 2022-06-29T16:22:57+00:00 Dr. Burhan Ud Din burhanuddinjcs@gmail.com Dr. Muhammad Noman numanm964@gmail.com Sadaf Parwin Sadafshfaq@gmail.com <p>A closer look at the three contents of the section reveals that all three are related to the "family system". Islām has its own family system. Different family members have different rights and duties in that system. Laws related to the family system are called "family laws". The law of a country deals with three types of matters. Criminal, civil and family laws. Complaints in each other's affairs are for hearing and deciding, while&nbsp;the last one is for family matters to be discussed. The words "Personal Law" and "Public Law" are used in English for this family system. Sponsorship, custody, guardianship and austerity come under discussion. Almost all people follow personal law equally. Outcome: Our country has its own laws for the above-mentioned matters (inheritance, custody, divorce and child custody, etc.). In Pakistan, the 22 points raised by the scholars also included rights with regard to personal law. The rules and regulations regarding the family system in Islam, namely inheritance, divorce, custody, sponsorship, marriage, sponsorship and austerity.

Allah made one Muslim brother of another Muslim and an Islamic system has responsibility to provide peace, justice and financial security to not only the Muslims but all humanity without religious discrimination. In the golden age of Islam, people of different religions were living happily in peace and religious freedom under the Islamic system in many parts of the world. But since Muslims have become embroiled in sectarianism, humanity has been deprived of a peaceful system due to differences and wars, so the most important question now is how to unite Muslims? There are two basic principles for establishing an environment of harmony among Muslims, one is that Muslims should respect each other, and the other is that they should express their differences with good manners. If the people are taught basic etiquette, good manners, harmony and unity through Masjids, Monasteries and Imambargahs, the results at national level will soon be felt. while the choice of religious leaders must be according to the merit. It is also must to appreciate efforts of those religious leaders who work for unity of Muslim Ummah. If the government formulates a systematic policy for Masjids, Madrassas, Monasteries and Imambargahs, it is possible to unite all sects and schools of thought on their similarities and promote the culture of disagreement with respect in the their differences.</p> 2022-06-29T00:00:00+00:00 Copyright (c) 2022 The Islamic Culture "As-Saqafat-ul Islamia" الثقافة الإسلامية - Research Journal - Sheikh Zayed Islamic Centre, University of Karachi http://www.theislamicculture.com/index.php/tis/article/view/817 Promoting interfaith harmony and the common challenges facing the state system regarding the unity of the Ummah, in the light of Quranic teachings 2022-06-29T16:24:54+00:00 Abbas Ali Raza abbasaliraza@lgu.edu.pk Dr. Ata Ur Rehman aaa@asd.com Dr. Hafiz Faiz Rasool aairahtech@gmail.com <p>Interfaith harmony is an important requirement of the time because in our country, in the name of religion, the blood of the innocent is shed, while the fatwa of disbelief is not delayed for a moment in the followers of other sects. Has the issuance of fatwas of disbelief promoted religious harmony or increased the incidence of provocation? After much misery, our religious leadership has discovered the secret that instead of calling people of other sects infidels and arrogant, it is better to express one's point of view in the best possible way. After all, the religious leadership has come to the conclusion that a small section within each sect propagates extremist ideologies and hatreds while all are to blame. A 20-point code of conduct has been agreed upon for the promotion of Al-Masalak Harmony. The code of conduct signed by the scholars states that no school of thought will be allowed to make baseless accusations and speeches against hate speech, insults and others. No one will be able to insult the Holy Prophets, the Righteous Caliphs and the Companions. The Code of Conduct stipulates that no one has the right to declare persons belonging to the government, armed forces and law enforcement agencies as infidels.</p> 2022-06-29T00:00:00+00:00 Copyright (c) 2022 The Islamic Culture "As-Saqafat-ul Islamia" الثقافة الإسلامية - Research Journal - Sheikh Zayed Islamic Centre, University of Karachi http://www.theislamicculture.com/index.php/tis/article/view/819 The Evolution of Muslim schools in the light of history 2022-06-29T16:23:35+00:00 Dr. Hafiz Muhammad Ibrarullah muhammad.hamza@uot.edu.pk Dr. Khalil Ur Rehman aairahtech@gmail.com Dr. Muhammad Hamza aairahtech@gmail.com <p>The process of learning and teaching in Muslim schools is related to the Quran and the hadiths. As precious as the life of a religious student is, he does not appreciate it. This is the age at which he gradually learns. Growing up, every moment of their intellectual journey is invaluable, learning their knowledge is like collecting pearls. Muslim Schools are the only places where hearts are reformed and where humanity is taught. Proves to be alive. Adults want it, even small children want me to know about different things. To spread the teachings of the Prophet, there is a network of Arabic Schools in all corners of the world today, where scholars and narrators continue to equip students with the knowledge of the Qur'an and Hadith. The students of these schools also specialize in trade with theology, so that they can be used in daily life.

In this regard, debt is also one of the human needs. In Islam, After beliefs and worship, Matters are central. Debt is related to financial matters. Just as Islam has given all guidance to its believers in beliefs, worships, and ethics. Financial matters has been placed on rectifying the situation because it has a great deal to do with the Hereafter salvation. Be clear If a person's record of deeds contains the virtues of worship but also the evils of violating the rights of others, then it will be difficult to attain heaven and divine pleasure. Debit transactions have seemingly contradictory traditions. There are examples of borrowing and lending even in good times. The Holy Prophet (SAW) borrowed 40,000 from Hazrat Abdullah Bin Abi Rabia Makhzumi (RA). Hazrat Ibn Abi Hadrad (RA) borrowed from Hazrat Ka'b Bin Malik (RA). Hazrat Umar Farooq (RA) demanded a loan of four hundred dirhams from Hazrat Abdul Rahman Bin Awf (RA). On the other hand, The Hadiths of The Prophet (PBUH) have also been written in condemnation of borrowing is forbidden and condemned. What is their ruling? What are the conditions of&nbsp;borrowing and what is its scope? What does Islamic law guide us in this regard?

After it, decision should be made on the basis of the hadiths of the Prophet (PBUH), if Qazi/judge is unable to find the decision in both these primary sources, than he would consult the consensus of the companions. If there is a difference of opinions among the Companions on any issue, then the judge/Qazi, having a clear view on the concerned issue, should consider these statements carefully and decide on the basis of the statement which is closer to the truth. If he himself does not have this ability, then he should get a fatwa from a learned person and decide the case. Since there is no central government in the world, nor world has congress or parliament to make international law like the legislature at the national level which makes laws for the country. In this case, it is difficult to say what international law is. However, in various sources, state treaties are primarily considered the authoritative source in international law. In addition, as stated in the law of the International Court of Justice, the principles of international law are found in various forms, such as those found in the customary laws of states, as well as the general principles of law found in most countries. In all these cases, the principles of international law are found.

Our claim is noteworthy because in these states sometimes publishing material against the will of the elite becomes an unforgivable crime. However, it should be borne in mind that the general form of media in Muslim states, like other states, is based on modernity and Muslims also make full use of these resources. Therefore, the elites of the Muslim states also formulate their strategies in the light of circumstances and events and later in the context of those strategies, the media undergoes a phase of freedom or restriction. Most of the media officials have to endure the hardships of imprisonment in order to sustain the affairs of the government and to avoid the wrath of the public opinion. Sometimes media outlets face severe restrictions. Such operations in other Muslim countries, including Pakistan, are recent and recent observations. At the time of compiling this article, there are complaints from some media outlets within Pakistan itself that they are not being allowed to express their views freely. In a situation where the freedom of the media has become more of a necessity than the need of the hour, it is not encouraging for the elites to shy away from selfishness and reform. Although this article highlights the general character of the media, it also points out the attitude of the elite in a sub-aspect.</p> 2022-06-29T00:00:00+00:00 Copyright (c) 2022 The Islamic Culture "As-Saqafat-ul Islamia" الثقافة الإسلامية - Research Journal - Sheikh Zayed Islamic Centre, University of Karachi http://www.theislamicculture.com/index.php/tis/article/view/827 Orientalist Criticism of Lineage and Research and Critical Review of the Answers of Sahib Zia-un-Nabi 2022-06-29T19:03:14+00:00 Anwar ul Haq anwarulhaqabbasi304@yahoo.com Jamil ur Rahman aairahtech@gmail.com <p>The intelligence of the Arabs was unparalleled which made them forget the deeds of their forefathers.

And then the Arabs considered the one who remembers the lineage to be&nbsp;a great scholar. Therefore, they considered this knowledge as basic knowledge. For this they had established an organized system. Thus it was very difficult for the Arabs to make fun of another's lineage.

As morality is one of the most dominant characteristics of human life and is addressed and given importance just like the respect is bestowed upon man himself. This article ponders upon the fact that the holy Quran is enough to lead to the right path of morality and the most sagacious and perspicacious Quranic methodology is there to solve the problems evolved in human behavior. Dr. Farooqi urged the Muslims to follow the Quranic injunctions instead of Greek Philosophy, and further he declared that consulting the Greeks is to show no confidence in Qur’an and its methodology and this is not a service but an animosity to Qur’an and Islam. The study also presented analytically the actuality and originality of the morality of Islam that it is based on Quranic enjoinments and not on the Greek philosophy. To Dr. Farooqi morality is not merely an imaginative phenomenon, but possesses a practical epitome and a practicable paradigm in the form of the exalted and dignified life of the Prophet; a pragmatical and executable presentation of the holy Quran. To prove the preponderance of Dr. Farooqi’s moral philosophy over all the ethical approaches from Greeks to this day, the subject oriented research methodology is employed qualitatively.</p> 2022-06-29T00:00:00+00:00 Copyright (c) 2022 The Islamic Culture "As-Saqafat-ul Islamia" الثقافة الإسلامية - Research Journal - Sheikh Zayed Islamic Centre, University of Karachi http://www.theislamicculture.com/index.php/tis/article/view/846 Syed Qutb’s contribution towards Political Islam in the Muslim world 2022-06-29T18:21:07+00:00 Anas Bin Tariq anasbintariq@lgu.edu.pk Dr.Hafiz Faiz Rasool aairahtech@gmail.com Hamza Asim aairahtech@gmail.com <p>Syed Qutb (1906, 1966) was renowned for his revolutionary ideas in the Muslim world. He wanted the applicability of the true Islamic precepts in the Muslim countries. In addition, he strongly objected to the expanding political and economic dominion of the Western States in the internal affairs of the Islamic States. Moreover, he hailed from an Egyptian village and completed his primary education from that specific area. In 1920, he migrated to Cairo in order to acquire secondary education. After completing it, he got enrolled in Dar al-alum for accomplishing his higher studies. From 1933 to 1952, he rendered his services to his Government as a teacher and an administrator in the department of education. Alongside this, he also became an eminent literary secular writer of his time and wrote numerous poems and articles on various social and cultural issues. But, in&nbsp;1948, he had undergone a process of instant transformation and started to write on numerous Islamic topics. To add further, it is argued that the factors such as the instability of the Egyptian politics, the political and economic expansion of the colonial powers in the Islamic world and the formation of the Zionist state played a monumental role in making him an ardent exponent of political Islam. Moreover, he hated the Western way of life and advised his followers not to adhere to its norms, tradition and values. It has been seen that he considered Islamic political system as the panacea for all the political, social and economic ills plaguing the followers of the divine faith. Furthermore, he was also a trenchant member of the Muslim Brotherhood and tried his level best to overthrow Nasser’s regime in his country. Never the less, he could not be successful in his objective and was executed by his own Government for plotting against it (Bouzarinejad, 2017)</p> 2022-06-29T00:00:00+00:00 Copyright (c) 2022 The Islamic Culture "As-Saqafat-ul Islamia" الثقافة الإسلامية - Research Journal - Sheikh Zayed Islamic Centre, University of Karachi http://www.theislamicculture.com/index.php/tis/article/view/844 Social nexus between COVID-19 & Religion 2022-06-29T18:13:31+00:00 Muhammad Esfandyar Khan esfandkhan93@gmail.com Shahla A.

The religious aspects include how the people are offering prayers in this pandemic and how the religious specialists (Imam or Ulema) are reacting to this pandemic and how the solidarity is affected in the society in this stressful phase of time.

Especially escalated responsibilities of woman as economic supporter of family and restructured of man’s role, including involvement of man in family responsibilities like look after of children.&nbsp; Family has attained the status of dynamic entity and set of well-defined roles cannot be described now. Daily roles are negotiable on daily basis by the interaction between both partners. Both men and women are engaged in earning and house hold activities that influences work and family lives and consequently expansion of employment instability. Moreover, children well-being is also drastically disturbed as women being a mother can look after/take care of kids in good manners as compared to men. Aging draws our attention to the role of family responsibilities in adult life, however, should not be overlooked that the foundations of successful growth are formed early in life and that family background (e.g. parental socioeconomic status) is an important factor.</p> 2022-06-29T00:00:00+00:00 Copyright (c) 2022 The Islamic Culture "As-Saqafat-ul Islamia" الثقافة الإسلامية - Research Journal - Sheikh Zayed Islamic Centre, University of Karachi http://www.theislamicculture.com/index.php/tis/article/view/840 Surah Al-Hadid: Characteristics and Virtues: Hadith based Studies 2022-06-29T16:32:33+00:00 Dr. Samer N.A Samarh samer.samarh@gmail.com <p>This study aims to reveal Surah Al-Hadid, which is one of the Surahs of the Holy Qur’an, collect the hadiths mentioned in it, verify the degree of its acceptance, identify its purposes and characteristics, attain Qur’anic benefits from it to direct people towards the true purpose of the Surah and work with it, and raise their awareness about the danger and dissemination of the Mawdo or fabricated hadiths in the community about the Holy Qur’an, explain the consequences of inattention in this, and clarify the degrees of hadiths mentioned in the matter of the surah so that people are aware of them, and thus contribute to limiting the dissemination of untrue hadiths about the Holy Qur’an, including Surah Al-Hadid.

A Critical Analytical Study 2022-06-29T16:35:05+00:00 Abdul Rasheed aairahtech@gmail.com Muhammad Umar Farooq taleemulquran786@gmail.com <p>The arrangement of a word and the coherence of its sentences determine its beauty and true spirit; conversely, a word that does not have all its components attached to its original claimant is meaningless and insignificant; likewise, the excellence, attractiveness, and effectiveness of any word are determined by its beautiful arrangement. The Qur'an is the word of God Almighty, the subject and addressee of which is man himself, therefore, in the arrangement and organization of this word, Allah Almighty maintained all the traits of human words and all the genres of human speech. ALLAH Almighty said in the Holy Qur’an “And we have not sent any Messenger but with the language of his people”, in which the language of the nation is meant with all its attributes.&nbsp;Furthermore, it is called "Ilm-ul-Manasbat" which means to describe this sequence of God's utterances to clarify the meanings of Qur'anic words and their interpretation and also it helps to understand each sentence's interconnection and word link which are extensively explained.

A review of these two scholars' opinions, as well as the reality of their opinions, is presented in the following article. What are the points of contention? In light of these follower and challenger' positions, what is a reasonable and moderate opinion?&nbsp;</p> 2022-06-29T00:00:00+00:00 Copyright (c) 2022 The Islamic Culture "As-Saqafat-ul Islamia" الثقافة الإسلامية - Research Journal - Sheikh Zayed Islamic Centre, University of Karachi http://www.theislamicculture.com/index.php/tis/article/view/849 Description of Manuscript “Sitr wa Hijāb” by Shaikh Abdullah Jan Al-Sirhindī and His Methodology 2022-06-29T16:38:20+00:00 Dr. Nasurullah Qureshi nasrullah.qureshi@gmail.com Dr. Amjad Hayat aairahtech@gmail.com Dr. Muhammad Irfan Ahmed aairahtech@gmail.com <p>The Holy Quran is primary source of the knowledge in Islam.
