The Qur'an contains information on the history and issues surrounding many different scientific fields. It describes strange creatures and things found in the heavens, earth, horizon, high and underground, as well as the origin of creation, the names of famous prophets and angels, and previous nations' events. The concepts of the Qur'an have been unchallenged by science up until this point. Islam and the Quran have elevated science in society. I It doesn't seem to be true that Islam was the first faith to endorse science. Islam's observant and enquiring spirit has inspired people around the world to place a higher value on education and study.</p> <p>The purpose of scientific commentary is to help people understand the Quran, not to advance science. There is a scientific aspect to it as well. This will allow scientists to explore new realms of knowledge and research.</p> <p>These sophisticated individuals seek a logical, empirical understanding of the Quran's relevance and truth. It is raised whether scientific commentary is useful now and what impact it will have on society. The next generation, enmeshed in the tangle of human and modern issues and influenced by secular notions, refined the solution in Scientific Commentary. These well-educated moderns seek advice after being influenced and impressed by Scientific Commentary. As a result, the Scientific Commentary has been embraced by numerous Islamic interpreters, with favorable results.</p> <p>&nbsp;</p> Saddaqat Hussain, Dr. Amjad Hayat Copyright (c) 2022 Ma'arif-e-Islami Tue, 20 Dec 2022 00:00:00 +0000 اٹھارویں صدی میں فہم قرآن کا ارتقا:امام شاہ ولی اللہ دہلوی کے کام کا تحقیقی مطالعہ <p>Mughal Empire in Sub-Continent was deteriorating, but simultaneously a sun of knowledge, research and Ijtihad was emerged and enlightened with its enchenanting light not only Sub-Continent but the whole Muslim world. The Sun was no other than Imam Shah Wali ullah Dahelvi who was born in 1703 AD. Shah Wali Ullah tried to the make comprehension of Quran easy for common people. He considered, the conveyance of the true message of Quran to the commoners, as an important need of the age. Shah Wali ullah wrote ‘Muqadamma Fatah ul Rehman’ "مقدمہ فتح الرحمٰن", "الفوزالکبیرفی اصول تفسیر" and "تاویل الاحادیث". In these books, he gave priciples of tafseer (explanation of Quran) and gave new heights to the old knowledge and skill of tafseer of Quran.The effects of these books on the later tafaseer (explanation of Quran) written after 18th century, are clearly visible.</p> Muhammad Anas Hassan, Dr. Saeed Ul Rehman, Dr. Abdul Qadir Buzdar Copyright (c) 2022 Ma'arif-e-Islami Tue, 20 Dec 2022 00:00:00 +0000 اثبات جرائم میں عصری قرائنی شہادت کی اہمیت اور اسلامی تعلیمات <p>There are numerous in Quran and Sunnah about the justification of circumstantial evidence. Holy Prophet used Circumstantial evidence on the base of his supposition, and also it is secondary evidence but it has not obtained the status Primary evidence . As the Circumstantial evidence and DNA report is not accepted as primary evidence that is why Islamic Fiqh demands visual evidence as well. That is why that required of visual evidence is necessary in Islam .However it can be taken as omen based evidence ,secondary evidence and circumstantial evidence. And if the Court is satisfied, the penalty can be imposed. In America and other Western countries DNA repot is accepted as evidence for punishment. But our experts of jurisprudence accept circumstantial evidence just as secondary evidence.</p> Dr. Ghulam Farooq, Dr. Muhammad Waris Ali Copyright (c) 2022 Ma'arif-e-Islami Tue, 20 Dec 2022 00:00:00 +0000 اردو سیرت نگاری پر بیسویں صدی کے سیاسی اثرات <p>If, on one hand, 20<sup>th</sup> century has turned out to be a symbol of advancements, then on the other hand it has also proved to be a birth place of a multitude of miseries and problems. In the 20<sup>th</sup> century, the rise in publishing of books led the knowledge and wisdom to the acme of excellence and brought the whole world in harmony. Europe, Africa, Asia and America seemed to walk a long way on the road to prosperity. When knowledge and wisdom became deeply rooted in the society then the progress of commerce and industry also became a constant factor. Although the life of &nbsp;&nbsp;prophet (PBUH) was deeply studied through the ages, but it was again the 20<sup>th</sup> &nbsp;century that shined brightly in this aspect too. Many Muslims and&nbsp; Non- Muslims scholars&nbsp;&nbsp; also penned down a lot of work on the&nbsp;&nbsp; Seerah of Muhammad (PBUH). As a result of, the refined form of Seerah writing appeared before the world. Seerah writing, like other branches of knowledge, came under the influence of modern age and witnessed many improvements. It was particularly influenced by the unique political environment of Indo-Pak subcontinent.

Moreover, religious scholars, Sufis, and owners of the shrines (Gaddi Nasheen) take their part to spread Islam. However, Emperor, Kings of Temari Sultanate, Ministers, or Members of that specific Kingdome did not take any part in this scenario. Although, they did not forbid these kind people to do so. These people came in front whenever any social evil took birth and tried to highlight those issues that they cannot ignore their responsibilities as the leaders of the Muslim. Sheikh Ahmed Sarhandi’s (1544-1624) efforts to stop wrongs act in Akbar’s era are the outshine examples in this regard. Shah Waliullah Muhaddis Dehlvi tried to stable the Mughal empire and made plan but couldn’t succeeded.

In this regard Muslim scholarship is witnessing challenges in relation to status and role of women in the Islamic society. The diminished status and role of women as per Islamic teachings, is outcome of either direct bearing of their so called male dominated social setup or through illogical criticism about the status of women in Islam. The way Muslim women are viewed in the world is a significant issue which needs to be re-joined. In different societies, women are viewed in terms of their needs. Her existence is used as an adornment of the market as poster sign and honor less as smudged. In this article an endeavor is made to acme, the position, Islam gave her is most unique a better template for her social character and a program to work as a dignified soul which has increased her honor and chastity.</em></p> Dr Ali Muhammad Bhat Copyright (c) 2022 Ma'arif-e-Islami Tue, 20 Dec 2022 00:00:00 +0000 The Bibliometric Analysis of a Bibliography of the Works on the Prophet Muhammad in Western Languages <p><em>This paper presents a bibliometric analysis of “The Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him): A Select Bibliography in Western Languages,” published in 2015 by Islamic Research Institute, International Islamic University, Islamabad, Pakistan on </em>sirah<em> (a genre of literature that discusses the life of the Prophet Muhammad).

Based on the current times, ethical virtues in context of leadership are very much popular in scholars for discussion. Considering the Justice, leadership and its impact on major institutions, Imam Ghazzālī’s Islamic ethical thought has led to an important contribution in Islamic moral systems. In this respect, the present research aims at analyzing the moral value of justice and its importance in building an effective leadership in societies. The present research also focuses on how the distinct feature of Justice, particularly present in Islamic teaching can significantly affect leadership and their principles in current times. Through an analysis of Imam Ghazzālī’s thought on ethical values specifically justice, the researcher examines the ways in which the indulgence of unethical activities and practices can be damaging and leads towards the fall and destruction of any society. The study seeks to argue how Imam Ghazzālī detaches secular thought and uphold religious thought while constructing his leadership related approach. The present research also focuses on benefits of combining Justice and leadership in context of worldly and hereafter reward. The paper will conclude by analyzing the important insights to counter biased, corrupt, and unethical activities while limiting themselves into moral values, cultural construction, and religious limitations. The result of the study will be offering valuable critical tools in studying the leadership and moral values underneath the constructive ‘Divine Law’.</p> Dr. Syeda Mehmoona Khushbakht, Dr. Munazza Sultana Copyright (c) 2022 Ma'arif-e-Islami Tue, 20 Dec 2022 00:00:00 +0000
