  • A Qualitative Analysis of the Challenges to the Islamic Banking

    • Authors: Dr. Amjad Hayat; Dr. Muzammil Khurshid, Dr. Nadeem Abbas Abbas
      Abstract: Islam's collective system of justice is based on equality and cooperation. Economy is of great importance in this system. That is why the regular rules and regulations for it have been beautifully mentioned in the Qur'an and Sunnah. Economists in the Muslim Periods have done much to promote the economic system based on these sharia principles. A beautiful aspect of this Islamic economic system is that Islamic banking is very important. Muslims have sincerely strived for its development, promotion and strengthening.  Muslims face many difficulties in its evolutionary journey. These include the absence of the Central World Islamic Bank, the inappropriate attitude of some religious leaders, the non-cooperation of government agencies, the dual system of banks, unfamiliarity with Sharia in the business and business community, lack of good credit, discouragement, modern technicality in Islamic bankers. Lack of requirements, lack of skills, difficulties in implementing Mashraqa and Mudaraba, misunderstandings, lack of public awareness and lack of trained staff are notable. There is a need for a scientific analysis of the Challenges facing Islamic banks and their solutions. This article is written to meet this scientific need.

  • The Status of Woman in Islam and Buddhism: A Comparative Study

    • Authors: Dr. Kulsoom Fatima
      Abstract: Allah, the Lord of Glory, Created man and woman to run the system of life in the universe and demarcated their duties and rights individually. The issue of equality and reciprocity between man and woman has always been debated by social thinkers. Before Islam, at the age of ignorance, woman was a picture of helplessness and compulsion. But when the candle of Islam was lit, woman got the honorable position. Similarly, in pre-Buddhist India, since Hinduism was at its peak and at the time of the Brahmins, woman was in a state of cosmopolitanism. Gautama Buddha raised the voice of reform and laid down the rights and duties of women, but Gautama Buddha's sayings comprise dual opinions about woman. In this article, the status of woman as a daughter, mother, wife and widow has been compared in the context of Islam and Buddhism .Evidences prove that Islam has elevated the status of woman in all aspects , while in Buddhism there is divergence of opinion about the position of woman.

  • The Importance and necessity of Marital Psychology in the light of Seerah
           and Psychology

    • Authors: Muhammad Abdul Haq; Prof. Dr. Ata ur Rahman, Prof. Dr. Muhammad Tahir Khalili
      Abstract: Allah Almighty, by His wisdom, has endowed man and beast with certain stimuli which motivate them to take necessary actions for the protection of their species and for the survival of the race. Islam takes into account the basic traits of human nature and caters to them in lawful ways. Among these natural stimuli is sexual stimulation. Of course, sexual desire is a great source of human strength and the best way to fulfill it is through marriage. Marriage is an individual, cultural and natural need that has been recognized by all the societies of the world. However, in the Quran and Sunnah, at the same time, it has been declared a religious and moral necessity, and instead, it has been commanded to be fulfilled. In the Holy Quran, it has been declared the Sunnah of the Prophets. If a person tries to turn away from natural things like marriage, then he faces dangerous consequences. Without marriage, the whole family and social system become chaotic. In order to be  mentally healthy, it is necessary to strike a balance between spirituality and  materialism, and for  this, it is  essential  that man fulfills his spiritual,  physical and  psychological  needs in  moderation. Allah has made the blessed personality of the Prophet Muhammad (ﷺ) an excellent example of a perfect human being. Prophet Muhammad (ﷺ) has fulfilled the physical, Psychological, and spiritual requirements with perfect   balance for the perfection of personality.

  • Is Islam Responsible for Under-Development of the Muslim World'

    • Authors: Waqas Ali Haider; Arslan Mehmood Chughtai, Dr. Abdul Haseeb, Muhammad Aslam
      Abstract: Post World War II, with the emergence of nation states – the need for development of Islamic economics as an academic discipline, and thereby politico-economic institutionalization emerged. This can primarily be attributed to the socio-political will of the polity to form economic system both for public and private finances which are aligned with their religious aspirations. Notwithstanding, Islam has long been criticized of impeding growth and economic development by the advocates of modernist capitalism (most prominently Weber). Furthermore, the development of Islamic economics discipline has also been criticized for being a rushed measure to Islamize knowledge resulting in an incoherent co-optation of the capitalistic economic system. In this pretext, this paper seeks to present a comprehensive account of the scholarly criticism and subsequent rebuttal posited around the conceptualization of Islamic economics. We explore the ontological and epistemological foundations of Islamic economics, to explicate the role of ‘actors’ and the ‘mould’ as delineated by the ‘Maqasid-e-shariah’- to contextualize the Islamic world view of economic development and growth. The findings of this paper not only responds to the criticism levelled against Islam as anti-development, but also identifies the potential causes, rationale and context of such criticism. Gaps and future research directions are also identified to inform the stakeholders and scholarly research for coherent development of Islamic economics.

  • Motives, Trends, Modern Forms of Materialism and It’s Solution: An
           Analysis in the Light of Islamic Teachings

    • Authors: Riaz Ahmad Saeed; Abdul Raouf Mr.
      Abstract: This paper tries to explain the essence of the concept of Materialism, by reviewing the definition and history, which at this time will review the opinions of Islam and different philosophers. It will point out modern trends of Materialism, its Motives, Modern forms and its solution especially. Association between materialism and life satisfaction is somewhat more complicated as it simply appears. People, usually, use their own set of standards in arriving at overall appraisals of their lives. Overall evaluation of life could be influenced by numerous factors such as religious affiliations, income, possessions, property, health, social support, attitudes, etc. The main thrust for this research has been the belief that materialism has adverse effects on a person's life, while religiosity and gratitude mediate relations between these two aspects of life.  At the end of the analysis will be presented that how should a Muslim respond to the concept of materialism. It concludes with results and some proposals.KEYWORDS: Materialism, Motives, Trends, Modern Forms, Solution. Islamic Teachings

  • Teaching Values to Students for their Holistic Development: An Analysis of
           Secondary School Teachers’ Beliefs

    • Authors: Imran Khan; Yaar Muhammad, Sajid Masood
      Abstract: Education helps in preparing students for holistic development—contributing to the development of not only cognitive or practical skills of students but also plays a significant role in making them an embodiment of morality and good citizenship. It is now commonly accepted that values education is an important and essential ingredient of educations’ responsibilities to inculcating values in students. All the National Education Policy documents from 1947-2009 and the National Curriculum for Islamic Studies and Pakistan Studies, Grades IX-X, 2006, have focused on inculcating values to make students compassionate, caring, hard worker, honest, trustworthy and good citizens of Pakistan. The present qualitative study aimed to explore teachers’ beliefs about the inculcation of values in students of secondary schools. The basic qualitative research design was used. Ten secondary school teachers were purposively selected as participants from a district in Punjab by using the criterion sampling technique. In-depth semi-structured interviews were conducted for data collection. Qualitative content analysis was used to analyze interview data through NVivo 12 software. The findings of the study suggested that values education is a missing element in our education system. Teachers seemed to be dissatisfied with the curriculum, pedagogy, and continuous professional development training (CPD) in the field of values education. It is suggested that there should be a revision of policy, planning, and practices to enhance the priority for inculcating values to the students of secondary schools.

  • Investigating Principles of Narration and Acceptannce of Hadith by Hazeat
           Umar Farooq (RA)

    • Authors: samina jabeen; Ali Asghar Chishti
      Abstract: The present study is aimed to trace out Asool e Rewayat for the acceptance of Hadith by Hazrat Umar (R.A). It has been found that The Hadith and Sunah of the Holy Prophet (P.B.U.H) is the source of Islam and is the practical representation of the Holy Quran. Sahaba (R.A) practically acted upon the teachings of the Holy Prophet P.B.U.H) with zeal and zest. After the death of the Holy Prophet (P.B.U.H) Khulfa eRashdeen adopted a very particular mode of attention for the delivery (Rewyat) of Hadith and promoted the culture of “usul e Istishad. In this way, the general things which wereexpected to become the part of “llm of Hadith” on name of “Rewyat” with the addition of word” the Holy Prophet said” were ended. As KhulfaeRashdeen emphasized on “Rewayat Bill Lafaz”.The strong determination and consistency of the first caliph Hazrat Abu BakarSiddiquree (R.A) regarding the obedience and practice of Hadith and Sunah is admireable for Muslims. He (R.A) laid down the policy of “usaul e Istishad” for the delivery and acceptance of the Hadith. Hazrat Umar (R.A) introduced the rule of nomination of “Sahaba” for the teaching of Hadith. He (R.A) added such golden rules  “Qawad e Hadith” for the guidance ofUlma e Hadith.

  • Surgical Transformation in Medical Science in the light of Shariah
           Injunctions

    • Authors: Waqas Ali Haider; Muhammad Farooq Iqbal, Dr. Zainab Amin
      Abstract: Mankind has practiced surgery as an effective medical intervention to treat and cure diseases and disorders since ancient times. In the contemporary world the application of surgery has expanded beyond treatment of disease, to perform physical alteration and beautification. This article seeks to analyses and present the legitimacy and validity of surgical practices in the light of shariah injunctions i.e. from Quran verses and hadith (sayings of Prophet Muhammad S.A.W). Based on our review of literature, we found that the legitimacy of surgical methods is contingent on the objective of the surgery which are (i) treatment or cure of disease, (ii) rectification of a physical disorder including organ transplant, (iii) physical ornamentation or beautification, and (iv) change of gender. We argue that while surgery performed to cure illness and rectify organ or body disorders are permissible - however surgeries pursuing ornamental alterations and discretionary changes to gender are frowned upon in Islam. We present a comprehensive analytical account of shariah injunction based Quran, Hadith and sunnah to back our argument posited in the research.

           the Light of Imam Tabarani ' s Maajim & Sihah-e-Sitta

    • Authors: Hafiz Rab Nawaz; Dr. Sana Ullah HussaiHussain
      Abstract: Quran is the primary source of Sharia (Islamic Law) and the key to success for entire humankind in this world and hereafter. Hadith is the written record of the sayings, actions and life of the holy Prophet (PBUH). Hadith, apart from being the secondary source of Sharia, also provides the theoretical and practical explanation of the teachings of the Quran. Therefore, the importance of Hadith for understanding and interpreting the Quran cannot be overemphasized. The scholars of Hadith (Muhaddithein) have compiled the Hadith in different styles, keeping in view their different objectives, since the beginning of the compilation of Hadith. There have been a number of famous Muhaddithein who are highly respected and regarded for their work. Among them is Imam Tbarani, one of the greatest scholars, who compiled many valuable collections of Hadith. His three famous books, known as Ma’ajam-e-Salasah contain a huge collection of about 31,449 Ahadith and Aasar. Around 1,200 of these Ahadith are related to the exposition of the Quran, out of which around 171 are narrated by Abdullah Bin Masood (RA), who was one of the greatest companions of the Prophet (PBUH). In this research paper, the aforementioned 171 narrations by Abdullah Bin Masood (RA) have been analyzed and compared with his narrations found in Saha-Sitta (six fundamental books of Hadith). Many of these 171 narrations are also found in other books of Hadith are some of them are helpful in understanding the similar narrations found in other books.

  • CONCEPTUALIZING HUMAN TRAFFICKING IN LIGHT OF HUMAN RIGHTS AND ISLAM

    • Authors: Syed Raza Shah Gilani; Ilyas Khan, Ashraf Ali
      Abstract: ABSTRACT Trafficking in human beings is a multifaceted criminal act involving deception, forced labour, and sexual exploitation. Human trafficking has become the fastest-growing criminal act for the purpose of sexual exploitation. The conceptualization of the trafficking problem is not fully understood without knowing this phenomenon deeply. This study explores the trafficking in human beings in light of human rights and Islam. This aims to examine the question of human trafficking in Islamic terms as a violation of human rights. It will be instigated to argue that the trafficking of people and forced prostitution are breaches of human rights. Most notably, the paper examines the Role of Islamic Law and Principles for Trafficking in People. It demonstrates how Islamic law and morals demand for the eradication of the slavery institution. The ban on the exploitation of people (in all its forms) and the refusal of tyranny and harshness are extremely relevant to today's trafficking crime. It can be utilized in Muslim communities to impose a public obligation to protect trafficked persons, especially women and children.

  • The Issue of the Testimony of Women in Islam, A Scholastical study, its
           Misdeems and Social Impacts

    • Authors: Ali Said Mashwani; Muhammad Naeem
      Abstract: This research has carried out to elaborate the status of women witness in various transactions as well as to explain misdeems over it and its social implications. The key aim of this article is to define evidence, women evidence’s status and analyze misdeems and its social impacts critically. Evidence means, “The information which used in a court of law tries to prove something through documents, objects or statements”. A witness is a person who testifies what he has seen of a matter or an event. The witness of women is justified by Quran, Hadith Consensus and even by Common sense. Judiciary is the milestone of peace alieving in society while witness is the back bone of every judicial system. Without witness never justice could be done nor can any right be proved or protected in the court of law. Therefore Islam has given the status of trust to witness and direct the witnesses to deliver it in the court with full honesty and integrity without fear and apprehension. The women witness plays a pivotal role in all evidential proceedings. It is unanimously admissible in women related matter like: Menses, Delivery, Virginity, Pregnancy, Marital Status Chorale, Clearance of Womb etc. while in financial matters like Sale Purchase, Confession, Mortgage, Usurpation, Marriage, Divorce, Eddatt (Stay –at-home), Pedigree, Bequest, Attorneyship, Freedom of Salves, Inheritance, Reconciliation, Gift and Will, agreements are also admissible without gender discrimination with the condition that if she would hobble during evidence recording in court, would be associated and assisted by another woman to avoid hesitation. According to Majority opinion in Fornication and Boundaries (Hadood) cases her evidence may not be accepted because in Hadood the accused creed the benefit of doubt while according to Imam Ibn -e -Hazam Zahiri, her witness is admissible in all transactions. Bases verse No. 282 of Surat-al-Baqara, the Orientalists misdeems and assertion that Islam has discriminated women while halting her witness half to men but it is their misconception because in Islamic point of view in women relating matters her sole witness is acceptable while in irrelevant matters she had given relief of exemption which does not mean her inferiority to men. It is just the variation of responsibilities. It is an universal truth that women are very abashed and do not like to see adultery or to be the witness of it. Therefore Islam has reduced her burden by exempting her evidentiary liability in fornication cases.

  • Proving Penances and Limits by Analogy

    • Authors: Ali Ahmad Babar; Ihsan Ullah Nasih
      Abstract: As it is mentioned earlier, the origin of the disagreement according to the disincentives; atonement (Kefara) and Haddod are proved by sapience, not by analogy. For instance, the rak'ats of prayer; we cannot determine the wisdom of number of rak'ats of prayer based on analogy. Nonetheless that sapience is an offshoot, by sapience we can determine the wisdom of number of rak'ats of prayer. Those who are in favor of proving the atonement (Kefara) and Haddod on the basis of analogy say that analogy is an argument for the public, that is why acting based on analogy is obligatory. The preferred quote is related to the demos scholars because they say that atonement (Kafara) and Haddod are proven based analogy, there are reasons in this regard in the Qur'an, Sunnah, consensus and sapience

  • The Status of Compulsion on Nikah of a Minor Virgin: A Study in Light of
           Islamic Fiqh

    • Authors: Fakhruddin Qanit; Ms. Kamila
      Abstract: The rulings of Islamic Shaira are all-inclusive to the entire human life. It provides a practicable guideline in all horizons of human existence. The one integral part of life is marital attachment., which is why it is explained in rather detail in Islamic sources. Nikah is a deed of trust that is entertained between a male and female in view of specific conditions. It takes place with mutual understanding free from force and external pressure. As though this contract the mutual rights of both the parties are ensured so Islamic Sharia also considers the rights of guardians. The guardians of both the parties also reserve the right to challenge a marriage contract done against the status and honor of the family. Similarly according to some Islamic Juristis the guardians especially the father and grandfather of a minor girl can utilize the power of attorney by doing the Nikha of their minor. Now the questions arrive here that why this discretionary power has been given to guardians and what hidden wisdom lies behind this' In this research paper, this issue has been explained in rather detail by providing the documentary proofs from Islamic Jurisprudences.

The injunctions of the Holy Quran moulds the  human behaviour so as to avoid excesses. This moderation and injunctions are often described through three principles found throughout its pages: the principles of unity, balance and responsibility. The important environmental teachings are obvious in the verses of the Holy Quran. In order to ensure human a healthy environment, all these teachings must be respected and put into practice on every level of lifestyle of every human. Toconclusion, we can say that the Prophet Mohammed could be considered a pioneer ofenvironmentalism, preservation,sustainable development and resource management.

  • Hagia Sophia: A Study of its Historical Perspectives, Architectural
           Structure and Geographical Importance

    • Authors: Aijaz Ahmed; Mumin Ahmad
      Abstract: The Hagia Sophia has always been regarded as a symbol of medieval Christian mysticism. During Byzantine and Ottoman history, the structure served as the Imperial Church and Mosque respectively. Emperors were crowned there, victories were celebrated, and later Ottoman Sultans had performed their prayers inside it. For many centuries, the Hagia Sophia was considered possibly the largest monument in the world. Today, its dome is still accepted to hold this title of the most extensive in the world. The Hagia Sophia is one of the most important Byzantine structures ever built. It holds historical significance as a culminating feature of the Christian era Roman Empire and stands as a monument artistic, structural, and architectural achievement. Numerous architectural features like designing aspects, artistic flourishes, and calligraphy were hired in the building by the famous architects of the time. The mosaic on the central dome believed to be an image of Christ has an importance in the world’s calligraphy, which was also covered by gold. By the historical analysis of this study, it seems to be clear that Hagia Sophia’s construction , for the centralization of power under the Holy Roman emperor, was the supreme not only for the political power but also to perpetuate civic peace and religious propagation. Justinian is known as the early ruler of the Eastern Roman Empire who was responsible for his political and spiritual ambition. From the historical aspects, Hagia Sophia has served for the centuries as the landmark for both Orthodox Christians. Later, its impressions and significance were shifted to the dominant culture in the Turkish city. The Hagia Sophia played a vital role in Byzantine culture and politics of its first 900 years of existence.
