  • Living in Harmony - Islamic Perspective

    Living in Harmony - Islamic Perspective Sheikh Mansour Leghaei ********* The present article is a brief study of the living in harmony from the Islamic point of view. Argument Mankind without religion is a pretty sorry lot. It has never been able to survive without faith. Yet, surprisingly agreement is never reached on such a vital subject. Thus, they have their own zealots who attack the religions of others, the result of which is intolerance and contention. Inter-group relations, especially when religion is also involved, are full of conflict and suffering. Martyrology feeds the myths, and prejudice adds bitterness to the legend. Political expediency and biased scholarship invest the legend with the status of history. To this end, men have been suffering throughout history from lack of toleration of others’ beliefs. With the cry “Deus Vult!”(God wills it) rivers of blood have flowed as a result of religious intolerance. Crusades, Roman Inquisitions and Holy

Dr Ali Shariati proposes his views and explains how to put them into practice.
  • The Emphasis on Justice in Nahjul Balaghah

    Imam Ali (a.s.) was a model of justice at a time when the world was not ready to bear it. It was for this reason that justice has been greatly emphasized in the Nahjul Balaghah. In Imam Ali’s speeches, sermons, letters, and short sayings, we see that in many many occasions he instructed the people to exercise justice as well as instructed the governors and his agents to apply justice and refrain from partiality, because, after the death of the Prophet Muhammad (S), people started again to do injustice and oppression was raising again, and it was because of Imam Ali's preaching against injustice and oppression that he was killed, thus removing justice and replacing it with oppression, which will continue until the day universal justice will be established.
