      Accounting the Quranic explications “Naught is there but its treasuries are with Us, and We send it not down but in a known measure” (Al-Hejr: 21) and “That is the bounty of God; He gives it to whom He will”(Al-Jom’eh: 4), present paper regards Western art creations in virtue of “concept” worthy of reflection and reconsideration. It unearths the basic ideas and fundamental principles of modern art schools and explores their relation to the Holy Quran’s expressive approaches in reflecting intended issues. Thus, the question here would be “what is the correspondence between Quranic styles of representation and modes of expression in modern art schools?" We restrict ourselves to the influential Euro-American movements of late 19th to early 21st century influencing the contemporary art currents. The methodology of this qualitative and exploratory research is descriptive and analytical, and it benefits from critical theory of Deleuze and Guattari. The investigated schools and their related “concepts” include Romanticism, Naturalism, Realism, Impressionism, Pointillism, Symbolism, Expressionism, Cubism, Futurism, Dadaism, Constructivism, Surrealism, Hyperrealism, Conceptualism, Participative/Interactive art, Abstractionism, Minimalism, and Deconstructivism. According to this research, there is certain congruity and correspondence between Quranic expressive approaches and modern art school’s methods of expression or representation in virtue of “concept”.

      The influence of foreigners and enemies in the land and thought of Muslims has precedents in the history of Islam. Since the beginning of Islam, hypocrites, people of the book and other enemies of religion have been trying to find an opening in any way to influence the beliefs, culture, economy, etc. of the Islamic society. Enemies, when they do not see in themselves the power of military and direct confrontation, try to take full advantage of the weak points of Muslims and make the best use of them for their nefarious purposes. In other words, the influence of the enemy mostly refers to their imperceptible and secret tactics to carry out their conspiracy, but in the meantime, the Holy Quran has dealt with the problem of influence and its types with a special look. The studies carried out showed that in the Holy Quran, the use of spies, intimate relations with foreigners, spreading rumors, propaganda and inducing suspicions, exile or physical removal of religious leaders of the society, assassination of leaders, deceiving Muslims by pretending to be friends, revealing the secrets of Muslims, Incorrect understanding of moral virtues, creating economic bottlenecks, abusing legitimate figures in society, disobeying the orders of the leader of society, destroying cultural centers and infiltrating them, psychological warfare and putting the masses of people in intellectual weakness are the most efficient tools and tricks of the enemy to It is an influence that is collected in detail in this article.

      In the scientific interpretation of the Qur'an, the verses whose miraculous aspects are examined are more important. The miracle of the Quran is one of the favorite topics of commentators and religious researchers in the present era; Because by means of it, the truth of this divine religion can be proved. The presentation of religious topics, especially the miracles of the Qur'an, in the classroom can also be of great help in attracting students to religious education. So far, various scientific points from the verses of the Holy Quran have been discovered in connection with the topic of human creation. In this research article, based on library sources, a comparative comparison is made between the opinions of commentators, linguists and embryologists about verse 189 of Surah Al-A'raf, and using solid reasons, it is shown that the Quran tells a secret about the way in which the egg is contained by the sperms, fertilization between Their nucleus and zygote formation is mentioned. It should be mentioned that we have used the materials related to the subject mentioned in the 11th grade biology textbook for the purpose of effective and attractive teaching, so that students can be introduced to Quranic concepts through it.

      One of the topics of intergenerational justice is the rights of the future generations, according to which the divine gifts that have been inherited from the previous generation to the current generation, are transferred to the future generation, and each generation has the right to use the divine gifts, which means that nature And the resources in it belong to all people and generations and were created to meet their needs, and there is no evidence that divine gifts belong to the current generation and their superiority to future generations. The verses of the Holy Qur'an contain important teachings in this field and general Qur'anic speeches stating that what is in the sky and the earth belongs to all humans in every generation and because the divine verses are expressed in the form of real cases, in addition to The current generation (the existing ones) includes the future generation (the extinct ones) and emphasizes the necessity of protecting the rights of future generations and divine gifts, and besides paying attention to the spiritual dimension, it encourages humanity to respect the rights of future generations and It has established principles and rules to protect this matter.

      In today's world, willpower is one of the efficiency factors in different dimensions of life, which increases the exposure to mental challenges and causes the growth and development of personal and work life. This issue is considered one of the basic issues of humanistic psychology, which is used to strengthen human self-awareness. On the other hand, the study of the verses of the Quran shows that a large number of verses are related to the will and ways to strengthen it. In the current research, it has been tried to express the necessary solutions in the matter of strengthening people's will by the analytical-descriptive method and by referring to the verses of the Quran and the theory of psychologists of the humanist school. From the point of view of the Qur'an, man is the best of God's creations and is moving towards God with infinite capabilities. Human talents flourish only in the path of divine approach; Therefore, according to the Qur'an, factors such as divine piety, jihad, fasting, prayer, patience, self-cultivation, etc. strengthen human will and movement. But the humanist school only pays attention to the known human capabilities and takes steps to strengthen the will to reach those capabilities. According to the humanist school, things such as self-knowledge, positive indoctrination, goal setting, determination, decision-making power, and self-respect influence human will. Manuscript profile

      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.

      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
