The study trailed the inductive method by observing the Qur’anic verses connected to the Worldwide Qur’anic Discourse to divulge the issues related within it; and the importance of these matters, by following appropriate supervision and reference from the scholars of Tafsir which proposes Holy Qur’an that related to it; in order to accomplish its full consequence and reimbursements. As well as the analytical method to deduce the universality of the discourse used, its significance and the disclosure of its contemporary fields. The study concluded that the most important is, highlighting the importance of properly understanding the Qur’anic discourse and its universality. One of the reasons for the weakness in the concept of the Universal Qur’anic Discourse among people in general is, people unable to identify and distinguish the exactitude in the Qur’anic discourse and its universality according to real, scientific, and practical applications. Its divinity, justice, infallibility, solidity, humanity, everlasting, definitive, comprehensiveness, and balancing, all of are meant for universal and does not subject to a specific hierarchy. The study focused to broaden the meaning and purposes of the Qur’anic discourse, especially when dealing with the great and vast human knowledge. This study concluded that the subject of the Universal Qur’anic Discourse and its material should be implemented within the curricula of schools, institutes, and universities either entirely or precisely.</p> أحمد أمير الإحسان بن جيء زهاري Ahmad Amirul Ihsan Bin Che’ Zahari نشوان عبده خالد Nashwan Abdo Khalid رضوان جمال الأطرش Radwan Jamal Elatrash Copyright (c) 2021 2021-08-30 2021-08-30 5 3 1 25 منهج التعليم القرآني في الكتاتيب المصرية والخلاوي السودانية، دراسة وصفية .

It also sheds the light on their role in enabling learners to acquire targeted language skills, such as listening, reading, writing, and memorization. The importance of research exists in the clarification of the educational and pedagogical curriculum of the “Al-Kuttab” and “Khelwa”, and the role of this approach in preserving the components of the Islamic nation and preserving its heritage represented in the Holy Quran, the Sunnah of the Prophet, the Islamic faith, the Arabic language, and its eternal history. The research problem lies in the existence of a discrepancy between the curricula and methods of Qur’anic education in the countries of the Islamic world, and the absence of scientific and educational coordination between the institutions concerned with this matter, which results in the loss of the benefit from the exchange of experiences in this important field, and the continuity of what it is of an existing situation that is not compatible with reality and lack of ambition to develop that is compatible with the spirit of the present age, which leads to making great efforts compared to gaining little of the desired benefit. As well as the apparent absence of the pioneering role of these two institutions from the living reality, and its negative impact. The research adopted the historical approach and the descriptive and analytical method in tracing the phenomenon of the Al-Katateb and al-Khalawi historically, describing it, and analyzing its implications. Among the most important results of the research is the necessity of working to revive the role of these two institutions, and to develop their educational methodology in line with the requirements of the present era.

It gives the marital relation its legal cover. So, for this relation to be stable and fulfill its objectives, it should be established based on clarity and mutual consent between the two parties. Thus, if a party suffers a physical or mental defect of which the other party is not aware of and did not indicate acceptance of, this implies that there is no consent toward the defected party. The other party may lose his/her interest or purpose of the marriage. Hence, Islam grants the right of dissolving the marriage contract to both parties in case it was learned, after the marriage is solemnized, that a partner suffers a defect. Islam also set rules and terms for such dissolution to happen. Therefore, this research is important because ending a marital relationship happens in various contexts and varies according to causes which the research addresses besides other relevant issues.</p> حُسام الدين عبادي Hosamuddin Ebady محمد أمان الله Muhammd Amanullah Copyright (c) 2021 2021-08-30 2021-08-30 5 3 104 131 مكانة المرأة في الحديث النبوي الشريف: دراسة مقارنة مع المسيحية The Status of Women in the Noble Hadith: A Comparative Study with Christianity https://journals.iium.edu.my/al-risalah/index.php/al-risalah/article/view/336 <p>إن المرأة هي اللّبنة الأولى في الأسرة؛ وهي الأم الحانية على أولادها وزوجها، الراعية لشؤونهم، والمزودة للمجتمع بالرجال والنساء المصلحين له، وبدونها تتعطل حركة الحياة داخل الأسرة وخارجها؛ وقد أولت الشرائع السّماوية للمرأة جانبا كبيرا من الاهتمام، تجلى في ورود&nbsp; أحكام كثيرة تختص بشؤونها؛ بيد أن نظرتها لمنزلة المرأة في أسرتها، وكيفية الحفاظ عليها تتمايز؛ لذا يأتي هذا البحث لبيان وجهة نظر كل من الإسلام، والمسيحية حول مكانة المرأة في الحياة الأسرية، وأساليب الحفاظ عليها في ضوء نصوص من الأحاديث النبوية الشريفة وفقه الأسرة،&nbsp; ومقارنتها بنصوص من المسيحية؛ لتنجلي بعض أوجه التشابه والاختلاف بينهما، ويتبين أن الشريعة الإسلامية هي من أولت المرأة المكانة الأجلّْ، ورعتها الرعاية الأشمل، وقد نهج البحث المنهج الاستقرائي الوصفي؛ لاستقراء نصوص من السنة ومن الأناجيل ما أمكن لخدمة موضوع البحث، والتحليلي لتحليل بعض الآراء الفقهية حول أحكام الأسرة في المذاهب المعتبرة في الفقه الإسلامي، والمقارن لبيان أوجه الافتراق والتطابق بين موقف الإسلام، والمسيحية حول منزلة المرأة في الأسرة، وأساليب الحفاظ عليها.</p> <p>The woman is the first construction block in the family unit; She is the considerate nurse for her children and her husband, who takes care of their activities, and offers humanity with males and females who are great for it.

Since the advent of democratic rule in 1999, the heterogeneous nature of the Nasarawa State in terms of religion and ethnicity has created a major challenge of diversity management as evident in the prolonged inter-communal, religious, and ethnic related conflicts that plagued the zone with grave humanitarian consequences. Deaths associated with these conflicts are unevenly distributed in terms of their frequency and intensity. Key drivers of these conflicts have been contestations over access to land control of political and economic power, as well as disputes over indigeneship, which reflects a conceptual difference enshrined in Nigeria’s constitution. As the problem of ethno-religious conflict among the youths in Nasarawa State comes to limelight, this study intends to make an indepth investigation into the effect of ethno-religious conflict among the youth in Nasarawa State.The Paper focused on ethno-religious conflict in Nasarawa State of Nigeria.</p> ADAM IBRAHIM ISHAQ Hossam Moussa Mohamed Shousha Copyright (c) 2021 2021-08-30 2021-08-30 5 3 242 260 MAQᾹṢID AL-SHARῙ‘AH ON THE PROTECTION AND DEVELOPMENT OF HUMAN INTELLECT AMONG SECONDARY SCHOOL STUDENTS IN NASARAWA STATE. https://journals.iium.edu.my/al-risalah/index.php/al-risalah/article/view/342 <p>Islamic scholars agreed that Islam has the goal of being a mercy to humanity.

The main purpose of this study is to exermine the role of <em>Maqāṣid al-Sharīʿah</em> in the protection and development of human intellect among secondary school students in Nasarawa State towards moral, scientific, and spiritual attainments. The study utilizes descriptive design that allows exposition of the elements for the preservation of human intellect from all forms of evil to the development of a scientific mind in the secondary school students of Nasarawa State. The study reveals that five fundamentally universal objectives namely, religion, life, intellect, lineage, and property are parts of the ultimate objectives of Islam which are to serve human interests and save them from harm. The principles of <em>Maqāṣid al-Sharīʿah</em> can be applied to protect as well as develop secondary school student’s intellect. The study recommends the learning and teaching of Islamic law be encouraged among secondary school students in Nasarawa State to ease for them its inculcation in all aspects of life for personal, state, and national development.</p> Abubakar Usman Hossam Moussa Mohamed Shousha Copyright (c) 2021 2021-08-30 2021-08-30 5 3 260 290 Polygamy in the Light of Maqāsid Al-Sharī‘a https://journals.iium.edu.my/al-risalah/index.php/al-risalah/article/view/343 <p>Islam provides a balanced way of life to humans with equal rights and justice. Intent of Sharia is to provide these rights to all followers irrespective of their gender, marital, social or economic status. From marital point of view, the widow and divorced woman has right of second marriage, either with a married man or unmarried. Similarly, a man has a right to have four wives at a time and this system is known as polygamy. This paper, in this context, explores the wisdom behind polygamy in the light of <em>Maqāsīd Al-Sharī‘a.</em> It tries to answer these questions: Is the law of polygamy allowed to fulfil one’s sexual desires legally? Secondly: what are the implication of polygamy in the preservation of family/ human race and nipping the social evils like prostitution, suicidal intentions, and mental issues? This study is divided into three sections including: (1) A brief introduction to <em>Maāsid-Al-Shariah</em>; (2) Polygamy and its brief history; and (3) Wisdom behind polygamy in the light of <em>Maqāsid Al-Sharī‘a.</em></p> Zonera Ghafoor Radwan Jamal Elatrash Copyright (c) 2021 2021-08-30 2021-08-30 5 3 291 312 PROPHET MUḤAMMAD ﷺ: THE ARCHETYPE OF MERCY https://journals.iium.edu.my/al-risalah/index.php/al-risalah/article/view/344 <p>If we were to select one overarching term that defines the nature and mission of the Prophet Muḥammad ﷺ, it would surely be <em>mercy</em>. Mercy is what Allah ﷻ uses in the Qurʾān to describe His beloved messenger ﷺ.&nbsp; He ﷻ states: ﴿وَمَآ أَرْسَلْنَـٰكَ إِلَّا رَحْمَةًۭ لِّلْعَـٰلَمِينَ۞﴾We have sent you ˹O Prophet˺ only as a mercy for the whole world.<a href="#_ftn1" name="_ftnref1">[1]</a> Throughout his blessed life, the noble Prophet ﷺ embodied compassion in every way possible and spread it to every person, animal, place, and object that he met. Those who opposed him were not excluded from experiencing his mercy and even those who did not interact with him were either recipients of his compassion or benefactors of his mercy in some manner, whether directly or indirectly. We are living through turbulent times in our world today and humanity is in much need of compassion. There is clearly a shortage of mercy in the lives of many individuals and societies. Violence, war, corruption, injustice, social and political discord, and other kinds of unrest are all too common everywhere we look. For this reason, it is imperative that people of all walks of life, study the prophetic embodiment of mercy and compassion. The researchers will use the inductive method in order to collect the texts spread out in various old and contemporary books related to the subject, and then the analytical method to extract the most important issues related to mercy. The results of the research: When examining the life of the prophet of mercy, it is effortless to understand the ways in which he brought harmony between people of different views and backgrounds. Studying the biography of the Prophet Muhammad helped to achieve security, peace, and justice in the hearts of people, believers and unbelievers amidst many hardships and challenges.</p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <p><a href="#_ftnref1" name="_ftn1"><span style="text-decoration: line-through;">[1]</span></a> Qurʾān 21:107</p> Zakir Ahmed Radwan Jamal Elatrash Noor Mohammad Osmani Copyright (c) 2021 2021-08-30 2021-08-30 5 3 313 334 Syed Anwer Ali and his Methodological Approaches in Tafsīr “Qur’ān the Fundamental Law of Human Life” https://journals.iium.edu.my/al-risalah/index.php/al-risalah/article/view/345 <p><em>Tafsīr</em> “<em>Qur’ān the Fundamental Law of Human Life</em>” is an English Qur’ānic commentary by Syed Anwer Ali.
