Arab people knew this kind of poetry in the modern era, in which they head towards it since it gives them musical rhythm and deep passion of poetry. The first attempt of dramatic poetry in Arabic literature was made by Khalil al-Yaziji, meanwhile the most famous poet in this field is the Egyptian poet, Ahmed Shawqi, who made a great effort to develop dramatic poetry. In fact, it was unknown until Shawqi came and showed it to Arab people. Hence, this kind of poetry achieved much popularity among Arab people and Shawqi has been regarded as the father of dramatic poetry as well. Apart from that, the writers and critics also assumed him as the pioneer of this kind of poetry because of his great contribution. These attempts continued after Shawqi, in which there were large numbers of contemporary Arab poets who came to this field and imitated the styles and methods of Shawqi in writing dramatic poetry. Among the most famous people were Aziz Abaza, Ali Ahmed Bakthir and Salah Abdul Sabour. Then, this kind of poetry develops completely until it reached an advanced stage of artistic maturity; therefore, it managed to have an excellent position in modern Arabic literature.&nbsp;&nbsp;</p> <p><strong>Keywords</strong>: Dramatic poetry, Development of poetical drama, Arabic literature, Pioneer of dramatic poetry, Ahmed Shawqi.</p> 2019-06-30T00:00:00+08:00 Copyright (c) 2019 Journal of Islam in Asia <span style="font-size: 0.6em">(E-ISSN: 2289-8077)</span> https://journals.iium.edu.my/jiasia/index.php/Islam/article/view/815 دور الوقف وأثره في ذوي الإعاقة بدولة الإمارات العربية المتحدة (The Role of Waqf in Assisting Individuals with Special Needs) 2019-07-15T13:16:29+08:00 عائشة خليفة بن غنام الهاملي muhajir4@iium.edu.my <p>&nbsp;</p> <p>&nbsp;</p> 2019-06-30T00:00:00+08:00 Copyright (c) 2019 Journal of Islam in Asia <span style="font-size: 0.6em">(E-ISSN: 2289-8077)</span> https://journals.iium.edu.my/jiasia/index.php/Islam/article/view/816 استعمالات تراكيب (كان) في الروايات العربية المترجمة من الإنجليزية: دراسة في الزمن والجهة (The Usage of Kaana Clauses in the Arabic Novels Translated from English: A Study on Tense and Aspect) 2019-07-31T00:27:19+08:00 محمد إخوان بن عبد الله muhajir4@iium.edu.my <p>يهدف هذا البحث إلى التعرف على معاني تراكيب (كان) واستعمالاتها في الروايات العربية المترجمة من الإنجليزية؛ وذلك من أجل دراسة استعمالات المترجمين العرب لتراكيب (كان) من اللغة الإنجليزية فيما يخص دلالات الأفعال الزمنية وجهاتها، ومن ثم التعرف على مدى تطابق الترجمة لدلالات تراكيب (كان) التي اقترحها النحاة العرب، ومدى مطابقتها لقواعد اللغة الإنجليزية، وتتحدد النصوص المستخدمة في بعض الروايات وهي: الزنبقة السوداء والفرسان الثلاثة، مغامرات شيرلوك هولمز عصبة الرؤوس الحمراء، وإما، جون اوستن. قام الباحث ببيان موجز حول دلالات تراكيب كان في العربية، وما ينتج منها من دلالات الأفعال الزمنية وجهاتها من حيث الانقطاع والاستمرار، وعرض موجز للأزمنة اللغوية الإنجليزية وجهاتها، ثم قام بالمقارنة بين النصين الإنجليزي والعربي من حيث الدلالة على الزمن والجهة، وقد توصل الباحث إلى أن هناك مطابقة في الدلالة على الزمن في بعض الترجمات، كما أن هناك عدولا إلى صيغ أخرى مختلفة تختلف باختلاف السياق.</p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <p><strong>الكلمات المفتاحيّة:</strong> تراكيب (كان)، الزمن، الجهة.</p> <p><strong>Abstract</strong></p> <p>This article aims to identify the meaning of “Kana” clauses and its usage in Arabic novel translated from English by studying how Arab translators used these clauses from English in terms of tense and aspects.

It is a diverse phenomenon, which has had tremendous impact on all aspects of human life. The spread of the culture of globalization can predominantly be attributed to the usage of modern electronic media such as the internet. As Islam is a global phenomenon, it becomes apparent that its principles should be held in the esteem befitting its status and not disregarded as irrelevant. Religious people of all age categories must agree to adapt their traditions to deal with the challenges of modernity. The end goal of globalization is thus to assess and integrate common ground into the world views of Islamic versus Western values rather than provoke bi-polarization and discord. As globalization in its current iteration predominantly stems from the influences of the West, it is paramount to scrutinize the differences in the Muslim interpretation of globalization in relation to its modern incarnation, to explore its differing definitions, the fluctuating goals of the educational systems, the sidelining of local traditions and languages, factors derived from the advent of “brain-drain” from certain nations, appropriate Muslim actions in response to globalization, and finally onto the question, how public sector management should be reformed in line with the reality of globalization and Islamic philosophy of government and administration in the contemporary era? However, following the example of the Western capitalist models and excluding religious public sector reform has produced varied reactions in MMCs. Such reactions include widespread social alienation and accelerated unhappiness and promotion of restless competition rather than cooperation. All these realities raise some unavoidable questions and debates that need to be properly addressed both from theoretical and practical perspectives. A refocused attention at the philosophy of public sector governance in light of the role of religion on the globalized and technology-driven world is an important endeavor to undertake. Thus the main objective of this paper is to explore an administrative model for public sector governance that will fulfil the socio-economic, technological and spiritual needs of a society. Data for this paper is collected mainly from secondary sources i.e. content analysis. ‘Islamic administrative model’ as suggested by Al-Buraey are used as the theoretical underpinning for this study.</p> <p><strong>Keywords:</strong> Globalization, Heartware and software, Islam, New Public management, Islamic administrative model.</p> <p><strong>Abstrak</strong></p> <p>Globalisasi telah berlaku sejak dahulu lagi dan ia adalah proses yang berlaku secara berterusan. Ia adalah fenomena yang pelbagai, yang memberi kesan besar kepada manusia dari pelbagai aspek. Penyebaran globalisasi budaya di dominasi besar oleh penggunaan media elektronik moden seperti Internet. Oleh kerana Islam adalah fenomena global, jelaslah bahawa prinsipnya harus dipegang dengan harga yang sesuai dengan statusnya dan tidak sepatutnya dianggap sebagai tidak relevan. Orang yang beragama dari setiap lapisan umur mesti mengekalkan adat mereka walaupun mendepani arus kemodenan yang mencabar. Matlamat terulung globalisasi adalah untuk menilai dan mengintegrasikan titik persamaan tentang pandangan dunia pada nilai murni Islam atau nilai murni barat dan bukannya mencetuskan polarisasi dan perpecahan. Oleh kerana globalisasi pada hari ini didominasi sepenuhnya dari pengaruh Barat, adalah sangat penting untuk meneliti perbezaan dari sudut tafsiran Muslim juga tentang globalisasi berhubung dengan penjelmaan modennya, untuk meneroka definisi yang berbeza, matlamat yang berubah-ubah dalam sistem pendidikan, mengetepikan tradisi dan bahasa tempatan, faktor-faktor yang diperoleh daripada kemunculan "keberanian otak" dari negara-negara tertentu, tindakan Islam yang sesuai sebagai tindak balas kepada globalisasi, dan akhirnya kepada persoalan, bagaimana pengurusan sektor awam perlu diperbaharui selaras dengan realiti globalisasi dan falsafah Islam kerajaan dan pentadbiran dalam era kontemporari? Walaubagaimanapun, menuruti contoh model kapitalis barat dan meminggirkan sektor awam agama telah menghasilkan pelbagai tindak balas dalam MMCs. Reaksi sedemikian merangkumi pengasingan sosial yang meluas dan meningkatkan jurang ketidakpuasan dan menggalakkan persaingan yang tidak sihat berbanding untuk kerjasama. Kesemua realiti ini menimbulkan beberapa persoalan dan perdebatan yang tidak dapat dielakkan yang perlu ditangani dengan baik dari perspektif teori dan praktikal. Penelitian semula pada falsafah tadbir urus sektor awam yang dibantu oleh peranan agama terhadap dunia global yang serba berasaskan teknologi merupakan usaha penting untuk dilaksanakan.

Bangladesh is not excluded in this case. Comparable partaking of equally males and females in the decision making procedure is indispensable for the progress of a state. Over the previous decades in Bangladesh, women’s status of employment has amplified. However, women are still staying behind in contrast to men. Women’s lively involvement in executive task is not simply vital for confirming parity and fairness for themselves as populaces of the state, but also it helps in turn into more approachable and proficient of addressing the necessities of women along with men. As Bangladesh accompanied by other developing countries are devoted to lessening of the gender discrimination as a share of their communal advancement programs; the situation of discrimination of women in the civil service of the state appeals for exploration of their definite position, discover the fundamental causes. This paper pinpoints and investigates issues that represent the positive progression of women to senior points in the civil service.

Sepanjang dekad yang lalu di Bangladesh, status wanita dalam pekerjaan telah diperkukuhkan. Walaubagaimanapun, status wanita tetap berada agak jauh ketinggalan jika dibandingkan dengan para lelaki. Penglibatan aktif para wanita dalam bidang eksekutif bukan sahaja penting untuk menjelaskan persamaan dan keadilan mereka sebagai penduduk di negara tersebut tetapi membantu menangani isu keperluan wanita bersama lelaki dengan lebih berkesan. Sebagaimana Bangladesh dan juga beberapa negara lain telah dikhaskan untuk mengurangkan diskriminasi gender sebagai sebahagain daripada program kemajuan masyarakat, situasi diskriminasi wanita dalam sektor perkhidmatan awam memerlukan satu tinjaun terhadap kedudukan mereka bagi mengetahui sebab-sebab utamanya.

In Malaysia, corporate governance is directly under the involvement of the Ministry of Finance, Bursa Malaysia, and Securities Commissions (SC) and Registrar of Company. A good reform of corporate governance in Malaysia is essential to enhance the quality of corporate governance practices after the Asian Financial Crisis 1997. The statistic shows that the low number of Malaysian companies adhered to good corporate governance practices. This poses a question of the extent to what issues and challenges faced by the Malaysian companies reluctantly to adopt a good practice of corporate governance. Hence, the Malaysian government has initiatively introduced Malaysia Code of Corporate Governance (MCCG) as a new code and rules for solving the problems of corporate governance. This study is important to ensure better management of corporate governance of companies in Malaysia, accountability, integrity, and transparency, thereby ensuring the survival of Malaysian corporate governance institutions around the world. The paper uses a qualitative approach. The findings from this study highlight that the introduction of MCCG is tantamount to solve the underpinning problems of the corporate governance system.</p> <p><strong>Keywords</strong>: Corporate governance, Malaysia, MCCG, Asian Financial Crisis.</p> <p><strong>Abstrak</strong></p> <p>Tadbir urus korporat adalah satu set proses struktur yang merangkumi sistem penyeliaan oleh lembaga pengarah yang diberi kuasa.

The first part of the paper states that the unification of Sabah with Malaya into the Federation of Malaysia guaranteed its independence from the British colonial rule as well as saved it from the communist threat. The next part of the paper suggests that the Islamisation activities were highly associated with the political needs of the government where the Muslim political leaders strived for increasing the number of their supporters in order to maintain their seats as the ruling government in Sabah. Thus, the paper finds the strong relationship between Islam and politics in modern nation-states, and concludes that the rapid growth of the number of Muslims in Sabah later created the quality problem as their religious education was not seen as the priority by the ruling government.</p> <p><strong>Keywords</strong>: Malaysia, Constitution, Islam in Sabah, Independence of Malaya, Islam and Politics, Federation of Malaysia.</p> <p><strong>Abstrak</strong></p> <p>Makalah ini menganalisis sejarah kemerdekaan di Sabah dan proses Islamisasi penduduknya yang menyebabkan pindaan Perlembagaan Negeri pada tahun 1973.

Bahagian seterusnya menunjukkan bahawa aktiviti pengislaman sangat dikaitkan dengan keperluan politik kerajaan di mana pemimpin politik yang Muslim berusaha meningkatkan jumlah penyokong mereka untuk mengekalkan kerusi mereka sebagai pemerintah di Sabah. Oleh itu, makalah ini mendapati hubungan kuat antara Islam dan politik di negara-negara moden, dan menyimpulkan bahawa pertumbuhan pesat bilangan umat Islam di Sabah kemudiannya menimbulkan masalah kualiti kerana pendidikan agama mereka tidak dilihat sebagai keutamaan oleh kerajaan pemerintah. &nbsp;</p> <p><strong>Kata Kunci</strong>: Malaysia, Perlembagaan, Islam di Sabah, Kemerdekaan Malaya, Islam dan Politik, Persekutuan Malaysia.</p> 2019-05-24T00:00:00+08:00 Copyright (c) 2019 Journal of Islam in Asia <span style="font-size: 0.6em">(E-ISSN: 2289-8077)</span> https://journals.iium.edu.my/jiasia/index.php/Islam/article/view/810 Two Sides of Modernity and Its Architecture (Dua Sisi Kemodenan dan Senibina) 2019-10-10T14:59:23+08:00 Spahic Omer ospahic@iium.edu.my <p>This paper discusses the two-sidedness of modernity and its architectural evolution. The paper concludes that modernity was exclusively a Western concept exported to the rest of the world. It was incubated by the weakening and marginalization of Christianity as a worldview and way of life, the rise of capitalism, and the worship-like attitude towards science and technology in everyday life. The world of architecture, especially its modernist school of thought and style, clearly reverberated such developments. Since its inception, modernity recognized no spiritual power or authority.

Dunia seni bina, terutamanya institusi pendidikan senibina aliran moden jelas menyokong kaedah dan gaya pemikiran tersebut. Sejak penularannya, kemodenan tidak mengiktiraf kuasa atau kuasa rohani.

Muslims as a minority are granted constitutional rights. However, the environment of the country was communalized against Muslims. Numerous Hindu organizations disagree with Muslim minority rights especially their existence with different identity. They want to change the secular constitution of India and turn it to a Hindu state. Nevertheless, to eradicate and to put an end to this demand the contemporary Muslim scholars want to create an environment of mutual-relationship as an inevitable remedy for a peaceful co- existing between Muslims and Hindus. For this purpose, Muslims are asked to develop a healthy relationship with the people of other faiths; and they must contribute towards the development of the state; and they should convey the true message of Islam to them. This paper aims at shedding light on the role of Abul Hasan Ali Nadwi who recognized the pulse of the time and worked continuously through his writings and organizational activities for religious harmony. In this paper, our study covers Nadwi's works and activities. Nadwi's views for interreligious dialogues, communal harmony and Muslim identity will be explored and analysed. This study follows qualitative approach and depends on books, articles, online academic materials. The finding shows that Abul Hasan Ali Nadwi has enormously contributed to the development of Islamic thought in post-independent India.</p> <p><strong>Keywords</strong>: Abul Hasan Ali Nadwi, <em>Payame Insaniyat,</em> co-existence, Muslim Personal Law Board, <em>Muslim Majlis-e Mushawarat.</em></p> <p><strong>Abstrak</strong></p> <p>India era pasca kemerdekaan dianggap sebagai republik multi-etnik dengan kepelbagaian agama. Sebagai kumpulan minoriti, penduduk Islam diberikan hak-hak dalam perlembagaaan negara. Namun begitu, situasi dalaman negara lebih menjurus kepada meminggirkan komuniti Islam. Sebahagian besar organisasi-organisasi agama Hindu menolak hak-hak Muslim minoriti ini terutamanya daripada segi hak keberadaan mereka yang wujud dengan pelbagai identiti. Tujuan mereka adalah untuk menukar perlembagaan India yang bersifat sekular kepada bentuk negara Hindu secara totok. Demi membasmi dan menghentikan desakan golongan ini, cendekiawan-cendekiawan Islam masa kini merasakan perlunya membina kerjasama dua hala sebagai satu cara penyelesaian mutlak agar keamanan dalam hubungan saling hidup bersama dapat dicapai di antara penganut-penganut Islam dan Hindu. Bagi tujuan ini, penganut Islam disarankan agar membina hubungan yang sihat dengan penganut agama lain; menyumbang kepada kemajuan negara; dan menyampaikan risalah Islam sebenar kepada mereka. Artikel ini bertujuan memberi pencerahan tentang peranan berterusan yang dilakukan oleh Abul Hasan Ali Nadwi yang sedar akan keperluan ini dan melalui penulisan dan aktiviti-aktiviti organisasi, beliau berusaha memperjuangkan keharmonian beragama. Maka pandangan Nadwi tentang dialog antara agama, (dan) keharmonian komuniti dan identiti Muslim dikenalpasti dan dianalisis.

It creates awareness among the Palestinian refugee community about this critical issue which threatens the future of their children who might spend many years without receiving adequate learning opportunities. The present study is based on a qualitative approach which is commonly used to explore recent phenomenon and provide an in-depth understanding of human behaviours and beliefs based on their points of view. It collected data employing semi-structured interviews with 30 Palestinian refugee families moving from Iraq, Syria and the Gaza Strip, and currently residing in Malaysia, waiting to be resettled in a third country through the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR) office in Kuala Lumpur. Using thematic analysis technique, the research shows that there are economic, institutional and parental challenges preventing the Palestinian refugee children from receiving education in Malaysia. Also, it reveals how such challenges lead to negative psychological impacts among the parents and their children. Moreover, it is found that the parents did not play an adequate role in utilising potential alternative pathways to education.
