This paper attempts to study the Qurʾanic approach to peace building by studying the term <em>iṣlāḥ</em> and other related terms from various Qurʾanic verses in connection with the vicious events confronted by the mother and sister of Prophet Mūsā and the good-natured actions applied by them to overcome the mishaps. This article concludes that utilising Islamic, universal values and principles will increase the possibility for peaceful change and development in community, which is conducive to harmonious and peaceful co-existence.</span></p> Che Amnah Binti Bahari Copyright (c) 2020 IIUM Press Tue, 03 Mar 2020 00:00:00 +0800 The Relevance of Tafsīr al-Jalālayn among the Muslims of Malabar <p align="justify"><span style="font-family: GentiumAlt; color: #006071;"><em>Tafsīr al-Jalālayn</em> is one of the renowned exegeses of the Qurʿan since the 15th century. Thanks to its authentic interpretation and smaller size, it could garner more recognition in the Muslim world. The academic impact it made at the Malabar province of south India is an exciting fact unveiled yet. According to this particular region’s long Islamic heritage and close relations with Arabs from an early time, such specific studies are much more significant. A qualitative approach based upon an extensive review of literature has been used to analyze the scholarly written contributions in this regard. This article mainly describes the latest four Arabic commentary works and two translations of <em>Tafsīr al-Jalālayn</em>‎ penned by scholars of the region. Its place in the prominent curriculums of higher secondary <em>Madrasa</em> systems, conventional&nbsp;<em>Palli Dars</em>es and Islamic institutions, in addition to several published editions are compared through field study. The participant observation helped to note its relevance in both religious and theological spheres. The study also provides historical data related to the regional socio-religious growth of the Muslim&nbsp;<em>Mappila</em>&nbsp;community of Malabar.</span></p> Muhammed Unais Kunnakkadan, Nadzrah Binti Ahmad, Nashwan Abdo Khaled Qaid Copyright (c) 2020 IIUM Press Tue, 03 Mar 2020 00:00:00 +0800 Attributes of Antioxidants as Inferred from the Makkī and Madanī Verses of the Qurʾān <p align="justify"><span style="font-family: GentiumAlt; color: #006071;">The purpose of this paper was to analyse the selected antioxidants that are stated in the Qurʾān. The focus of this research is on the pattern of selected antioxidants in the context of <em>Makkī</em> and <em>Madani</em> <em>āyahs</em> to facilitate a better understanding of the concept of antioxidant in the Qurʾān. This study is a qualitative study and the approach is content analysis. Data collected through the methods of content and document analysis are thematically analysed using descriptive and analytical methods. Findings demonstrate that the pattern of antioxidants is stated in certain groupings. Further, the antioxidants are mostly stated in the context of <em>Makkī</em> <em>āyahs</em>. The implication of this study establishes that the Qurʾān discusses different issues of the antioxidants in the two contexts and the Qurʾānic consistency in the use of terminology proves a miraculous aspect of the Qurʾān.</span></p> Latifah Abdul Majid , Nurul Mukminah Zainan Nazri, Wan Nasyrudin Wan Abdullah , Aminah Abdullah, Fadlan Mohd Othman Copyright (c) Tue, 03 Mar 2020 00:00:00 +0800 حقوق الجوار المعنوية وفوائدها في ضوء السنة النبوية <p align="justify"><span style="font-family: GentiumAlt; color: #006071;"> This study seeks to explore and present the status of neighbours and their moral rights from the Islamic perspective. The issue raised by this paper was the neglect of many of the rights of neighbours and the reported conflicts that occurred among neighbours. This paper argues that guidance and teachings concerning the issues of neighbourhood can be traced in the collections of hadith of the Prophet PBUH and that Islam has already given emphasis on the moral rights of neighbours whether they are Muslims or non-Muslim neighbours. The research adopted the deductive and analytical methods to collect hadith, interpret its texts and analyse the intended meanings and aims from the Sunnah. The result shows that taking care of neighbours secures a high position in Islam since that it is related to his status in the Hereafter. The Prophet, as learned from these hadiths, has shown the best example of caring for neighbours and making the neighbourhood the safe place for everyone.</span></p> Saad Eldin Mansour, Nuhu Ali Copyright (c) 2020 IIUM Press Tue, 03 Mar 2020 00:00:00 +0800 حرية المرأة بين نصوص الوحي والمنظمات النسوية في بنغلاديش: دراسة تحليلية تقويمية <p align="justify"><span style="font-family: GentiumAlt; color: #006071;"> This article discusses viewpoints of several women's organizations in Bangladesh pertaining to the issue of the freedom of women. The central issues of the study relate to the concepts of women’s freedom. Following the inductive, analytical and comparative methods, the two researchers discusses these concepts in light of what is available in Islamic scripture and what is maintained and demanded by women’s organizations in Bangladesh. Then they conduct a comparative study between the two sources. The result of the study reveals fundamental differences between the commandments of Islamic scripture and the stance of feminist organizations of Bangladesh regarding the concepts of woman’s rights and her equality with man. The study also explains the necessity of an appropriate understanding of the term “woman’s rights”. This research finds that both Islamic scripture and women’s organizations in Bangladesh have given emphasise on providing women their freedom.</span></p> Md Rahmat Ali, Muhammad Amanullah Copyright (c) 2020 IIUM Press Tue, 03 Mar 2020 00:00:00 +0800 الرد على مزاعم مؤلف كتاب كشف المتواري في صحيح البخاري حول الرواة الذين أخذ عنهم البخاري <p align="justify"><span style="font-family: GentiumAlt; color: #006071;"> This paper aims to deliver a number of responses to several arguments forwarded by the author of <em>Kashf al-Mutawārī fī Ṣaḥīḥ al-Bukhārī</em> concerning some discredited narrators found in the chains of narration in <em>Ṣaḥīḥ al-Bukhārī</em>. The study will explore the status of those narrators particularly those who were attributed with lack of piety and religious practice and those who were accused of fabrication, and the justification for al-Bukhārī’s inclusion of their narrations in his dedicated work on authentic hadiths. The researcher follows in her examination of the issue the inductive and analytical methods. The result proposes that many of the accusations levelled against those narrators can not be approved and for some, they were accusations that went back to their past where the narrators have denounced some of the heretical ideologies they used to profess. Another justification in this regard lies in the fact that al-Bukhārī did not include their narration as the main foundation for his chapters, rather most of these narrations play only auxiliary role.</span></p> Zakriyah Ahmed M Zakri Copyright (c) 2020 IIUM Press Tue, 03 Mar 2020 00:00:00 +0800 Living Sunnah Menurut Fazlur Rahman: Satu Sorotan Literatur Secara Sistematik <p align="justify"><span style="font-family: GentiumAlt; color: #006071;"><em>Living Sunnah </em>adalah satu konsep yang diperkenalkan oleh Fazlur Rahman, seorang tokoh pemikir yang berasal daripada Pakistan. Pada awalnya, istilah ini disebut sebagai <em>Living Tradition</em> yang diperkenalkan oleh Joseph Schacht seorang orientalis. Beliau mendefinisikannya sebagai satu tradisi di Tanah Arab yang didakwa oleh para sarjana muslim sebagai sunnah Rasulullah SAW. Dakwaan ini diteruskan oleh Fazlur Rahman dengan mengistilahkan ia sebagai <em>Living Sunnah</em> yang merujuk kepada amalan ahli Madinah sebelum kedatangan Rasulullah SAW. Apabila Baginda SAW datang, ia berubah menjadi amalan sunnah. Artikel ini merupakan satu tinjauan literatur bersistematik berkaitan <em>Living Sunnah</em> menurut Fazlur Rahman. Metodologi kajian menggunakan kaedah sorotan literatur bersistematik disusun hasil daripada himpunan jurnal yang mempunyai hubungkait dengan kajian. Hasil dapatan menunjukkan Fazlur Rahman mempunyai pandangan yang hampir sama dengan Joseph Scacht bahawa hadis tidak sepenuhnya datang daripada Rasulullah SAW sebaliknya adalah hasil proses kreatif para ulama dalam menyampaikan dakwah. Fazlur Rahman mentafsirkan <em>Living Sunnah</em> sebagai amalan tradisi masyarakat Madinah yang ditafsirkan sunnah selepas kedatangan Rasulullah SAW. Pendapat ini tidak sama dengan pandangan ulama Islam lain yang menyandarkan sunnah kepada Rasulullah SAW samada melalui perbuatan, percakapan, taqrir mahupun sifat fizikal dan rohani Baginda SAW.</span></p> Norsaleha Mohd.
