      Considering the Holy Quran is a source infinite ethical, human, and educational thoughts, many Persian poets and writers have benefitted from the treasures of this inspirational source; Hence, few traces of the works of Persian poets and writers can be found in which there are no streaks of familiarity with the Quran and Islamic teachings. This blending of our written legacy with Islamic teachings has made it difficult to understand this heritage without familiarity with the Quran and hadith; Hakim Abu Amin Nasserebne Khosrow Ghobadiyah is one of the poets who has placed their poetry to promote their religious thoughts and beliefs; Naser Khosrow has decorated his poems with these illuminated verses to achieve these goals and fulfill his religious mission of poetry. The presence of the verses in Nasser Khosrow's Diwan confirms the fact that he has gained an appropriate understanding of the illuminated words of revelation. considering Naser Khosrow’s religious background, his poetry encompasses much moral guidance and advice. Nasser Khosrow, with proper control over the Quranic concepts, has, for the sake of more effective use of his words, adorned his poems with numerous verses of the holy book. Nasser Khosrow's various ways of using verses indicate his comprehensive understanding of the Quran and Quranic concepts. Naser Khosrow, thanks to his artistic vision, sometimes uses the principle of the verse or part of it, and at times, the meaning and concepts of the verse in his poem, in the best way possible. In this paper, we try to analyze the different types of reflection of verses in Naser Khosrow's Diwan using statistical tables. Manuscript Document

      Social justice is the basic basis of creation of society in religious thought. But what is society building software in the light of social justice? Understanding this software is not possible without achieving a precise Qur'anic concept of social justice. This is why Islamic researches in the field of social justice has been often imposed by the preliminary or incomplete meaning of scholars of Adl and Qist in theory buildings, and the principle and sub-principle have become obscure. In this article, first, based on the thematic research method, we deal with the conceptology of Adl and Qist, and the relationship between the two. Then, in the light of this conceptology, with reference to Al-Mizan interpretation, an attempt has been made to develop a society building software based on Qist and Adl. Accordingly, society building is achieved through the consolidation of religion, which itself operates in the light of the three key components of power, wealth, and social ties. Social ties are the most fundamental layer of society building that economic relations are defined in the service of strengthening these ties and social cohesion. The political system and the institution of power, as the regulator of socio-economic relations, themselves need an internal consolidation based on obedience. Also, the component of spirituality as the fourth component, as a spirit on the body of society building, puts social justice in the service of monotheism. Manuscript Document

      Peace is a rare and precious thing that is among the most fundamental human needs and plays an important role in the happiness and health of individuals and society. Feeling peaceful is a major characteristic of every healthy human being as one can obtain growth and perfection in light of peace and calm. The Holy Quran, as the book of guidance for humanity, provides the best prescription for achieving peace. This paper seeks to describe true peace and correct man’s understanding of it on the one hand, and investigate the factors that contribute to creation and establishment of peace in heart based on divine teachings. To understand the true meaning of peace, one should bear in mind its distinction from comfort. Also, based on the teachings of the Quran, peace is achieved through paying attention to both material and spiritual needs and if there is a conflict between the two, spiritual needs should be given primacy due to the priority of the spirit. There are different words and phrases in the Quran that include the meaning of peace. They include Tathbit, Fuad, Thabat, Rabt-e Qalb, Sukn, and Sakina. A look into these words in the verses of the Quran reveals that the only origin and source of giving peace to hearts is relation with God, the Almighty. In view of the Quran, there are different factors involved in creation and establishment of peace. They include: faith, Zikr (recitation of prayers), correcting one’s view of the world, Tawakkul; (putting one’s trust in God), thankfulness, Taqwa (God-fearing), and performing religious rites.

      Administrative corruption, in all its different forms and with all its harmful consequence, is considered both a moral and a legal problem from the perspective of Islam. This phenomenon originates from personal, economic, cultural, political and judicial factors. Hence, the religion’s strategies to prevent and combat the problem include informal and internal strategies like Taqwa (God-fearing), patience, faith in the Hereafter, social responsibility, etc, as well as official strategies such as political, economic, cultural and judicial ones. This research, with a review of the verses of the holy Quran and the Hadiths (sayings) of the Infallible (AS), explains and clarifies the factors that lead to corruption and ways to combat them. According to the results of this study, Islam has a multifaceted view of the issue of uprooting the causes and origins of administrative corruption and recommends decisive action against such corruption when it happens.

      The Islamic historiography has been inaptly studied as a nonstructural concept in current Quranic scholarship by Orientalists. It usually abstains from attempts at making sense of the history as a structural concept. This pathology of common historical methodology is dealing with two principal issues i.e. the analysis of the Islamic historiography (Hadith) outside its structure and disregarding the Historical frequency in the historical scholarship. A fresh approach goes beyond the verbal shape of historical frequency. It is argued in this paper that every historical narration contains un-limited narrations regarding not just its expressed direction but the numerous directions beyond the textual implication. This Ultra expression's view is often ignored within analysis of the narratives transmitted in Islamic tradition. Manuscript Document

      The relationship between cognition and emotion is a topic that has drawn psychologists’ attention throughout the history of psychology. While earlier theories emphasized the distinction between these two areas, new theories have presented wide range of evidence affirming the close relationship between them.

The main question of this study is on the existence of relation between cognition and emotion and it goes. Using the analytical-descriptive, this research investigated the text of Quran and psychological texts. Based on the results achieved from the psychological studies, feelings and emotions such as grief, happiness, anger and anxiety can affect understanding, judgment, reasoning, attention, memory and decision making of individuals. On the other hand, an individual’s evaluation of environmental stimuli can determine the type, intensity and permanence of emotion. Based on the view of the Quran, cognition and emotion have mutual and casual relationship with one another and determine the orientation of behavior. This finding conforms to the new scientific findings on the relationship between cognition and emotion. Implications derived from the results have been discussed in the interpretation of the Quran verses related to the two issues of self-scrutiny and religious upbringing. Manuscript Document

      To understand the effects of physical, social, economic and management teachings of Islam about cities and explaining a model for the differentiation of cities in different periods, various studies have been conducted and various analyses have been presented, some of which consider the numerous religious references and texts on urban development. The specific nature of cities in the Islamic world and their concepts and inclusive common characteristics indicate the influence of the Islamic culture and their relationship with religious teachings. Thus, the Islamic city is a term introducing the cities influenced by the Islamic culture and values. This article, relying on references in Quranic verses to various aspects of architecture and urban planning as well as on the opinions of the commentators and philologists, has extracted reviewed and analyzed the identifiers and components of city in view of the Holy Quran while not considering the verses related to the life of the saints and eternal life. In this context, information and data have been collected and studied through analytic descriptive approach. The Holy Quran in order to avoid unnecessary and harmful construction refers to attributes such as security, peace, respect and compliance with natural and climatic conditions in urban and worldly development while also considering the ideal, perfect and absolute aspects in the heavenly abode. The style of the Quran in explaining the attributes of constructions is stressing the qualitative aspects in providing human social shelters and places. Basically, though, religious teachings do not mention detailed criteria and specific guidelines in this respect. Manuscript Document

      The Islamic culture is a set of beliefs, values, and commandments on what should or shouldn’t be done that have their roots in the Quran and Etrat (narrations from the Infallibles). The general principles and criteria of the Islamic culture have been mostly presented in the Quran and their details have been clarified by the Infallibles (AS). The Islamic culture, which revolves around the principle of being divine and is based on the Quran’s commandments and the teachings of the Infallibles (AS), determines the direction of all aspects of life, whose ultimate objective is personal and social elevation. In view of the Quran, the personal criteria of the Islamic culture in practical and behavioral approaches define the direction of personal and social life so that they not only provide spiritual health at the personal level, but also affect social health. The social criteria of the Islamic culture are the link between the individual and the society, and social peace is obtained through institutionalization of the criteria of the Quranic culture. This paper has sought to define the concept of Islamic culture and investigate its criteria through a descriptive-analytical method. It has concluded that the Islamic culture, revolving around the important basis of being divine, defines the direction of all aspects in personal and social life and, by presenting special approaches and factors, paves the ground for the salvation of the individual and society, whose outcome is personal and social health.
