      1 - A critical approach to the application of normative ethics classification in explaining the moral theory of the Holy Quran

      Although a critical approach to the achievements of modern humanities has been very common in the Islamic world, and in particular in Iran, for decades, it So far, dealing with the sample and producing science has not been able to enjoy significant acceptance. Normative moral theories in the West are divided into three categories: teleological, consequentialist, task-oriented, and virtue-based, based on their interpretation of the criterion of right and wrong in moral judgments and propositions. Through a methodical study of the verses, it is concluded that not only does the Holy Qur'an not limit its moral design to one of these three categories: end (result), duty and virtue; At the same time, it pays attention to the moral agent and emphasizes the observance of moral rules and limits, as well as to moral actions and behaviors that have an irreplaceable role in human well-being, and does not consider them as independent and separate from each other. . The design of "faith" as a set of moral values ​​and the existence of virtues - such as piety - that can only be defended and justified in religious ethics shows that the use of classification (result / task / virtue) in explanation and theorizing Islamic ethics is not as effective as it seems.

      One of the areas in which most of the translators of the Holy Qur’an have stumbled over, is related to the rendering of items belonging to the unique culture of the Noble Qur’an and Islam. In the translation of these Quran-specific cultural items, every translator with different ideological background adopts different strategies. So this paper is to work on the fifty Qur'an specific-cultural items in all surah(s) of the Holy Qur'an along with their English translations by three different translators A. Yusuf Ali, A.J. Arbery, and T. Saffarzadeh. The present study concerns with the Mona Baker’s (1992) theoretical model for translating culture-specific items to determine the strategies and techniques which the three translators of the Noble Book have adopted in dealing with Qur’an-specific cultural items. The results indicate that that the strategy of translation by a more general word has been the most frequently used strategy and the strategy of translation by paraphrasing using a related word is the least-frequent strategy either in the work of each translator separately and in the works of all the three translators as the whole. As a result, the translators tend to use more generic terms and to be more target-oriented. Manuscript profile

      In the present study, in order to achieve the similarities and differences between the Qur'an and psychology perspectives on success and conditions, interactions and consequences, a qualitative approach and a method of grounded theory were used. By applying three types of open, axial and selective coding on Quranic data and psychology, paradigm models were developed and the definition of success was presented. In the Qur'anic model, " salvation" as the corecategory and "God-seeking nature", "divine grace", "belief in the hereafter" as causal conditions; "Freedom" and "entry into the straight path" as contextual conditions; "Positive relationships" and "inner power" were introduced as mediator conditions and "self-construction", "worship", "religiosity", "governorship" and "speed and overtaking" were introduced as strategies. In the psychological model, "flourishing" as the corecategory and "self-knowledge" and "teleology" as causal conditions; "Freedom", "appropriate environment" and "motivation" as contextual conditions; "Positive emotions", "Positive relationships" and "Personality traits" as mediator conditions and "Self-sufficiency and self-management", "Work and effort", "Appropriate thinking and style of explanation" and " Delayed gratification - hedonism "were proposed as a strategy. The findings showed that both success approaches are recognized as human’s development and flourishing which in Quran viewpoint causes salvation, entering pure life, ending to divine salvation and nearness to the God, but in psychology viewpoint it is performed in order to achieve prosperity, eminency, wellbeing and happiness. And welfare takes place. The Qur'an depicts the paradigm model of success around the "God" axis, while in the psychological model, "man" is the main axis. Manuscript profile

      Introduction & Objective: Spiritual health is one of the important dimensions of human health and an important approach in promoting public health. Therefore, the present study was conducted to determine the level of spiritual health in Iranian nurses. Methods: This study was performed by meta-analysis. All related studies of nurses' spiritual health were searched in the PubMed, Web of Science, Scopus, Magiran, and SID databases and the Google Scholar search engine by the end of 22July 2021 with the appropriate keywords. In this study, the heterogeneity of studies was evaluated using index I2 and the probability of diffusion in diffusion by Egger test and Meta regression model to evaluate the variables suspected of heterogeneity at a significance level of 0.05. 16 articles were analyzed using Comprehensive Meta-Analysis software. Results: Based on a random model, the rate of spiritual health in Iranian nurses was 82.53 ± 2.81 (77.02-88.04: 95% confidence interval). The mean and standard deviation of religious and existential health were 37.60± 7.30 and 37.38±7.75, respectively. There was a significant relationship between sample size, year, mean age and spiritual health (P <0.05). Conclusion: According to the research findings, the level of spiritual health was optimal.

      The model of economic development of the West as the utopia of the present century has attracted the attention of less developed countries, But its implementation in many countries has had consequences and conflicts such as class divisions, injustice and the decline of values and it has raised questions about the relationship between justice and development. Economic development in Islam is based on the principles and values ​​of revelation, which, despite having commonalities with the development process in the West, follows a separate path due to differences in the principles, culture and goals. In this study, after studying the concept of Development and Economic Justice in the Holy Quran, it was found that these two concepts are very similar to each other and in fact it can be said that development is the path to social justice and both are united in the behavioral pattern of the divine caliph. Justice and development are both the ultimate goals of Islamic economics and the foundation of each other, and they do not work without each other. Economic justice also affects in the areas of resource utilization and opportunities, human development, production and consumption flows, trade and redistribution, increasing security and economic trust, and double efficiency.

      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 profile

      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.

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.

      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 profile
