But following the rules of religion is not limited to knowing the wisdom, because the human intellect is limited and it is not necessary for him to know all the wisdom of Allah Almighty. Hazrat Shah Waliullah writes about this: It is not permissible to pause in following the rules of the Shari'ah, as long as they are proven by authentic narrations, until their expedients are known. Islam in terms of its word, meaning and title is generally the name of peace and security, well-being and security. In other words, Islam is the name of not only being safe and free from corruption and death, but also keeping everyone safe and free. This is the reason why every aspect of Islam and the teachings of Sahib-e-Islam encourages and guarantees goodness, well-being, population, development and peace and security. Moreover, the family, social, social and economic purpose of Muslims with non-Muslims. Guidance on the relationship of each species is also available.</p> Abdul Rauf Sanawan Copyright (c) 2024 Abdul Rauf Sanawan https://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-nc/4.0 2024-06-01 2024-06-01 2 01 01 09 دلیلِ عقل: ایک اصولِ اجتہاد (فقہ جعفری کے تناظر میں) https://journals.iub.edu.pk/index.php/uas/article/view/2126 <p>Islam is the religion which guides the humanity not only in every aspect of life, but also solves the problems coming to be faced by humans upto the Day of judgement. On the other side, as the texts of the Holy Quran and Hadith are limited, and the expectedly coming problems are unlimited, so it is impossible to denote the solution of every problem clearly and vividly in the texts of Holy Quran and Hadith. For this purpose , Quran and Hadith put some principles explicitly or inexplicitly through which the solution of every problem may be solved in the light of the Holy Quran and Hadith. This activity is called Ijtihaad and the principles are called Principles of Ijtihaad. The article below is related to the Principles of Ijtihaad and it consists the explanation and critical analysis of the basic principle of Ijtihaad practiced in Fiqh Ja<sup>,</sup>fri, that is the authenticity of Wisdom.</p> Manhaj ud Din Prof. Dr. Shah Mohyuddin Hashmi Copyright (c) 2024 Manhaj ud Din, Prof. Dr. Shah Mohyuddin Hashmi https://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-nc/4.0 2024-06-10 2024-06-10 2 01 10 27 پروفیسر ڈاکٹر عبدالرؤف ظفر: حیات و خدمات https://journals.iub.edu.pk/index.php/uas/article/view/2161 <p>Prof. Dr. Abdul Rauf Zafar was a renowned scholar and researcher, celebrated for his contributions as a teacher and as an individual.

Applying Fairclough's theory as the foundation, comparative CDA sheds light on linguistic variations, discourse structures, and ideological foundations for in depth exploration of the debate. The analysis encompasses textual, discursive, and social dimensions to uncover differences in lexical choices and rhetorical devices used by each author and reveals differing perspectives within the language construction of both translations influenced by historical, cultural, and intellectual factors. Specifically, it contrasts Maududi's assertive political language with Ghamidi's more rational and adaptable writing style. The power structures and ideological influences in society reflect Maududi's emphasis on an Islamic state compared to Ghamidi's contextual, rational Islam. Translations impact societal dynamics by reinforcing specific interpretations, such as Maududi's clarity on doctrine or Ghamidi's promotion of individual autonomy. This research expands our understanding of diverse viewpoints within the Islamic discourse on religious freedom and coercion in the translation of the verse.</p> Jabreel Asghar Copyright (c) 2024 Jabreel Asghar https://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-nc/4.0 2024-06-29 2024-06-29 2 01 01 13
