    • Authors: Shah Pervaiz; Dr. Saeed ur Rehman
      Abstract: The Qura’an is the Noble book of Almighty Allah (SWT) for Muslims, revealed in stages to the Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) over 23 years. Various scholars have written Commentaries and Exegesis (Tafasir) of the Noble Qura’n in different times, languages and styles for better understanding of this great book. They have discussed the teachings, orders, events,, beliefs and other issues within the Qur'an in their own commentaries. In this connection Mian Muhammad Jameel (Birth: 1947) has also written Tafsir Fahm-ul-Quran in Urdu. Its fourth edition was published in 6 Volumes by Abu Hurairah Academy, Lahore in May 2014. The current paper is related to the Qura’nic Sirah in which the traditions and narrations mentioned by the Mian Muhammad Jameel in Tafsir Fahma-ul-Qura’n about Ghazwa-e-Ahdhab are being thoroughly analysed in a scholarly way.

  • A Research based dissucssion on Istawa alal -Al-Arsh in the light of
           Tafseer kabeer

    • Authors: Hazrat Umar; Dr. Nisar Muhammad, Dr. Salim ur Rahman
      Abstract: The tafseer, mafateeh ul ghaib, of Imam Fakhr Ud Din Al Razi (544-606ah) is one of the selected tafaaseer in the world all over, which has been enjoying an international repute for quite long period. This tafseer is known as the masterpiece of uloom e islamia. In this article the tafseer has been highlighted in the problems of mutashabihaat (that which is not known by anyone except allah). There are two types of the verses of the holy quran, known as muhkamaat and mutashabihaat. Muhkamaat is obligatory for belief and action whereas mutashabihat is only for having iman (belief) on it. Afterward some people started the explanation and the ummah went astray. Therefore the religious scholars have given comprehensive explanation in their tafaseers. Imam al razi has given intellectuals and logical arguments in his tafseer at different places about this issue and tried his level best to make it understandable to reason and intellect. The strayed and unfounded ideas have been addressed effectively. This dissertation reflects   the rational arguments of imam al razi supported by quran, hadith and other relevant materials.

  • A critical study of “Muhammad and his Power” by “P De
           Lacy Johnstone”

    • Authors: Israr Ullah; Engineer Ilyas Salih, Yaseen Salih
      Abstract: The objective of this article is to draw the general public's notice to P De Lacy Johnstone’s book "Muhammad and His Power." He addressed a number of criticisms leveled towards Muhammad (PBUH). A specific school of thought is preaching this enmity toward Islam under the misleading appearance of hypocrisy, alluding to the well-being and benefit of the people. They are executing their annoying work in a cryptic, covert, and crafty manner, since they are mistaken by the public for educated and modern religious experts with the expertise and solutions to the age's issues. This article analyses Johnstone’s (1901) allegations against the Holy Prophet Muhammad (PBUH). The focus is to answer main three allegations he has put on the Holy Prophet (PBUH) from the perspective of the Holy Quran and Sunnah. In these allegations, Johnston states that during the first ten years the Prophet Muhammad did not oppose “Kufar and Shirk”; an indication of likeness towards evil. Secondly, the Prophet married Hazrat Khadija (RA) without the consent of her father. Thirdly, he (PBUH) is not the founder of Islam rather it is a distorted form of Christianity and Judaism. These allegations have been concocted mere on heresy or citing inauthentic sources. This article refutes these allegations using authentic sources of the time and also excerpts from the Holy Quran and the Sunnah. This awful tumult could not penetrate the brains of ordinary people because they are unaware of Muhammd's Seera. It is thanks to the savants of Islam's ceaseless and unrelenting battles and strives that this horrible tumult could not reach the minds of ordinary people. The qualitative analysis of anti-Islamic actions is done using the subject-focused research approach.

  • Post-Islamic Revolution Constitutional Complexity for Functioning of
           Bureaucracy in the Islamic Republic of Iran

    • Authors: Syed Raheem Abbas Shah; Dr. Mussawar Hussain Bukhari
      Abstract: Iranian Constitution combines both concepts; theocracy and democracy where theocracy has been applied in the form of Khumeni’s model of vilayat-e-faqih (Guardianship of the Islamic Jurist) as defined in the preamble of constitution whereas; presidential system has been mounted as per the democratic standards. However, complexity exhibits when usage of bureaucratic authority becomes a question mark in between the directions issued by the government or vilayat-e-faqih. As Iran is a unitary state where centralized political system exists, bureaucracy should follow the directions of democratic government as per the universal standards of democracy. However, 8th section (from article 107 to article 112) of the Iranian constitution overlaps not only entire political setup of Iran by the strict  jurisdiction of vilayat-e-faqih (also called Supreme Leader) but this section also projects the dogmatically authoritarian nature of Iranian political culture. Similarly, article 150 of Iranian constitution delivers mandate to Revolutionary Guards for not only observing governmental directions / orders to the bureaucracy but they also have an authority to mold bureaucratic functioning as per the directions given by the Supreme leader. Therefore, core idea of this study is to comprehensively define such constitutional complexity for functioning of bureaucracy in Iran. In addition with, this study also tries to investigate the pros and cons of 8th section and article 150 in the Iranian political system whereas; threats to the unitary state system of Iran because of such complexity are being examined in the last.

  • Human Milk Banks and the Rules for Milk Siblings (Raḍā’)

    • Authors: Dr.Samia Maqbool Niazi; Mudasra Sabreen
      Abstract: Human milk is an excellent diet for newborns because it supplies important nourishment while protecting them from sickness. A milk tie, or milk kinship, is formed when milk from a woman other than the child's mother is consumed. It is more important among the Muslim population due to religious beliefs and the concept of Marriage Prohibition. Children who get the milk of the same mom are therefore tied by milk as milk siblings, with the same barriers to marriage as if they were linked by birth. Since milk bank practice in Western nations contradicts Islamic doctrine of milk kinship, there is a possibility of overlapping progeny. As a result, current Muslim scholars debate the propriety of unlabeled donation and acceptance of human milk through milk banks. On the other hand, there is a significant need for mothers' milk in hospitals for neonates, particularly premature babies; the following study suggests a way to prepare a proper model of "milk banks" that is in accordance with Islamic law (Shariah) and, at the same time, to avoid more progeny problems.

  • Causes of Divorce and its Prevention in District Malakand

    • Authors: Aliya Shah; Prof. Dr. Ata ur Rahman
      Abstract: Attaining in most happiness by the way of NIKAH is conditional to good marital relationships. Lacking mutual love, affection and understanding in marital life lead to difficulties and arduous lives of wives and husbands. Making humans responsible for each other’s rights and bounding them to live within the limits of divine decrees are the beauties of Islam. The Prophet Muhammad (Peace be Upon Him) says, “Divorce is a hatred act among lawful and legitimate acts”. Therefore, it must be avoided by individuals so as to minimize the ratio of divorce in our society. There are many causes of divorces in our society like lack of proper religious education and guidance, family and domestic disputes, complex judicial system, exchange marriages, negative role of media, adverse effects of cellular phones, improper usage of internet, excessive use of social media, second marriage, undue obedience of parents, dowry, drug addiction and such other. This article not only indicates the significant causes of divorce in District Malakand but also describes details of its prevention. There is a high hope of reduction in the rate of divorce, if corrective measures of the root causes are taken. The study is based on primary data collected through interviews in District Malakand.

  • A Critical Study of Egyptian Priest Zakriya Butras' objection to the
           marriage of Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) with Zainab

    • Authors: Aqil Khan; Sonya Naz Gul, Gulzar Ali
      Abstract: Zakriya Butras is an Egyptian priest and prominent orientalist. Since Arabic is his mother tongue, therefore he has direct approach to Islamic literature. Nowadays he hosts a TV channel named "Alfadi" in which he gives lectures against Islam, Prophet Muhammad and Quran. In addition to this he has written several books and articles in English and French which are there on his official website. Butrus, like other orientalists views islam by partial and prejudiced glances and spreads misconceptions regarding Islam, Quran and about the prophet of Islam. He presents these misconceptions in the form of objections and criticism. In list of his publications one of his book is "wives of Muhammad (PBUH)" in which he has made his marital life the subject of criticism. He has specifically criticised the wedlock of Syeda Zainab with prophet Muhammad and presented it in a strategic way to defame the personality and chastity of prophet Muhammad. He objects that the prophet fell in love with Zainab after her marriage with Zaid ibn Harisa and says that the prophet made them to divorce so that he himself will marry Zainab. In this article objections of Butrus are critically examined.

  • Sharia Teaching and Compliance with Traffic Rules

    • Authors: Sohail Abdul Hai; Muhammad Hammad, Zia Ur Rehman
      Abstract: Islam is a complete code of conduct that applies to every aspect of human life. This also owns and accepts those man-made norms that assist humanity's cause while avoiding its fundamentals. Adherence to Pakistani traffic rules falls under the same doctrine's umbrella. It is important to highlight that the same traffic laws, such as seatbelt fastening, proper use of indicators, speed management, and so on, have been devised to ensure the safety of everyone, from pedestrians to riders of all vehicle classes. Any infringement of traffic laws is an indirect breach of Allah the Almighty's divine discipline.If there is any harm, injury, or death because of the infringement, it will be dealt with according to Islam's teachings. This study intends to emphasis the importance of following traffic laws, which is directly related to ground safety. Ultimately, this serves the primary goal of saving any valuable human life. If this is secured, the holy verse's aim will undoubtedly be realized.

  • Operationalizing Istisna Contract as a Means of Manufacturing Finance - A
           Scholarly Review of Shariah Implications

    • Authors: Waqas Ali Haider; Muhammad Shabbir, Dr. Anwarullah Tayyabi
      Abstract: Efficient financial intermediation in an economy solicits flows of surplus funds between the surplus and deficit agents to finance production and manufacturing, create employment, and promote economic welfare in a society. This research reviews the Istisna'a contract (or Islamic Manufacture Financing Contract) Arabic (الإستصناع) in terms of their application in the contemporary Islamic finance to finance the short and long-term capital needs manufacturers. In doing so, we also articulate the shariah injunctions, risk and rewards proposition, and other related economic implications of Istisna contract. The study draws on a descriptive approach to present a clear understanding of as a shariah-based contract and as a financing arrangement orchestrated in the modern institutionalization of Islamic finance intermediation. We present a coherent exposition that delineate Istisna contract along three key dimensions i.e. (i) the terms and conditions that defines the legitimacy and validity, (ii) the key features that distinguishes Istisna contract from other financing forms in present day Islamic banks e.g. Salam, and (iii) the operating methods and procedures adapted to finance borrowers in adherence with this contract. This paper addresses a crucial dimension that can accelerate growth of Islamic finance as mode of financial intermediation acknowledging the significance of Istisna contract in driving industrial and production investments carried out by Islamic financial institutions, the diverse questions arising around its legitimacy, and its authenticity, and the risk exposures undertaken by the banks.

      Abstract: Dr Illama Muhammad Iqbal being a Sufi and national poet wrote about various ideologies, characteristics and human rights particularly focusing women rights. As a major part of his research and poetry is based on Islamic philosophy and seems inspired by different Sufis like Mansoor, Room I etc. His novel work of deriving analogies keeping in view the Islamic concepts and traditions unlike orthodox view. He was of the opinion that Islam is a universal and long-lasting religion so must fulfil current needs etc. To comply the existing requirements.While narrating the female/women rights he emphasized upon women rights much more than discussed ever before his era. As the condition of women in that age was pathetic, suppressed, subjugated and deprived. Those who favoured feminist movement criticised Islam as discriminatory religion showing partiality towards females. In such environment Iqbal depicted the clear picture of Islam and highlighted role, importance and rights of woman in Islam. Particularly in Zarb-i-kaleem, Javed Nama and Ramooz-i-bekhudi he focused such issues. He critically analysed the western concept and considered it in vogue. He never denied rights of females but demarcated her rights from that of males in Islamic perspective. This work is an endeavour to discuss rights and role of a Muslim women as per Iqbal's philosophy who was also in favour of liberty and equality but in prescribed parameters.

      Abstract: Allah has sent down the Holy Quran for the complete guidance of mankind. To understand the meanings of Quran, the science of tafsir was introduced. It is the science through which Quran is understood, its meanings are explained, and its rulings and wisdom are derived. The Holy Quran has been revealed in Arabic language. At the time of revelation, the mother language of those people was Arabic, so no problem they faced in understanding the Holy Quran. If they faced any problem, they asked the prophet (SAW). So the science of tafsir started in the prophetic era, and the Holy prophet (SAW) is the first interpreter of the Holy Quran. Till the period of the companions and the successors, the interpretation of the Holy Quran was based on two sources i.e Tafsir e Quran bil Quran, Tafsir Quran bil Ahadith. And when they did not find a clear guidance from these two sources, they used Ijtihad. So, three sources of the interpretation of the Holy Quran came into being i.e Tafsir e Quran bil Quran, Tafsir e Quran bil Ahadith and Tafsir e Quran by the narrations of the Companions and Successors.When Islam spread in Non-Arab nations, then the Holy Quran was interpreted in different languages. Till now, large numbers of tafasir were compiled. Every tafsir has its own features and methodology. Among these one tafsir was compiled by a great scholar Asharaf Ali Thanvi. In this article methodology of Asharaf Ali Thanvi in his “Tafsir Bayanul-Quran” is reviewed in a scholarly manner.

  • Women’s participation in sports: Constraints and Empowerment in
           Muslim countries

    • Authors: Aqsa Tasgheer; Tehreem Fatima
      Abstract: Islam promotes good health and fitness and encourages both men and women to engage in physical activity to maintain healthy lifestyles. Sports and recreation that bring relief to the body and soul are not only permissible in Islam but also desirable for all, without any kind of gender discrimination. However, Islam limits how sport can be practiced, such as Muslim women are not permitted to participate in mixed-gender sports. Numerous Muslim women have been barred from or have felt unfit to participate in sports due to religious misinterpretations or just a lack of awareness about the legal status of women's participation in sports. This research paper references the Holy Qur'an and Hadith as evidence for the importance of exercise and fitness for all including women. A historical overview shows that women's participation in sports has evolved differently in various regions and countries. There is a lot of literature concerning female participation in sports for leisure, but there is little material concerning Muslim women's participation in sports. Sport is, generally, considered a man-oriented and man-dominated activity in Muslim countries. The purpose of this research is to describe the various facets of the situation. For a long time, Muslim Female athletes have been unable to compete at the national and international levels due to a variety of socio-cultural, religious, economic, physical, and psychological barriers. But as of recent studies, Muslim women have achieved outstanding results at the national and international level despite limitations and constraints. This study will examine the engagement, constraints, and perceived limits of women of Muslim countries in physical activities. Additionally, the paper will explore the sports performance of Muslim women of countries aimed at encouraging women to engage in sports. In the end, recommendations will be given to improve the scenario of female participation in sports following Shariah.

      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.

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.

      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.

    • 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

    • 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.

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.

      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.

  • Tanzimat: A Brief Outlook of Secular Reforms in the Ottoman Empire

    • Authors: Aijaz Ahmed
      Abstract: Sultan Mehmut’s reign ended with the beginning of the Tanzimat Era which was the second phase of Ottoman reforms. Tanzimat (Regulation) is the name given to the programmes of reform that were inaugurated in November 1839. The term Tanzimat is derived from the root meaning ‘order’. Tanzimatists wanted to recreate the state and to amalgamate East and West. Their aim was, first of all, to create a modern national army, then to use it to restore the power of central government over the provinces and to create a new frame of work of centralized administrative and secular laws. This paper aims to refute this misleading historical narrative by showing that, rather than implementing Shariah, the Ottoman Sultans were actually attempting to secularise their laws and state institutions. Secular reforms in the Ottoman Empire can be traced back to the 17th century. However, this paper focuses on the period of reformation better known as the Tanzimat (1839-1876). During this period customary and religious laws were either abolished or repealed in favor of secular European ones. This was done on the orders of the Sultan/Caliph himself and with the approval of the religious authorities. During this reform period, the Ottoman Sultans attempted to integrate non-Muslim communities and these communities were given equal rights and privileges

  • 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
