Normal Personality in the Islamic View; Its Relationship with Performing Prayers in Adolescence

Seyyed Reza Moosawi* / Qolam Reza Mottaqifar**

Abstract

The aim of great prophets' mission and revelation of the Holy Quran is to educate man and create a human and normal personality by regulating constructive relations with God, self, people, and the universe. The reason why divine doctrines of the Holy Quran and the infallible Imams' traditions have been revealed to man is to achieve this holy aim. According to religious doctrines, it is incorrect to assume normal personality without referring to a source of revelation. The degree of one's normality is measured by the extent of one's nearness to the source of absolute power. The present paper is concerned with the normal personality according to the Islamic view and points out its effects. Meanwhile, it tries to recognize the relationship of normal personality with prayers and being a servant of the Most High God. Exploring the concept of normal personality in psychology and pointing to the role of normal personality in observing Islamic values are among the focal points of this paper.

Key words: man, prayers, normal personality, tendency towards servitude, adolescence.

 

 

The Curriculum; a Means to Achieve Moral Education, with Emphasis on 'Allamah Misbah's Viewpoint

Abbas Ali Shameli* / Hassan Maleki** / Hamid Reza Kazemi***

Abstract

Moral education is one of the most important educational issues. To achieve this high aim in the educational system it is necessary to have a plan which is called "curriculum" in the literature of educational sciences. This plan will not enable the educational system to achieve its ideal aims unless it is based on the value and religious foundations, principles, and methods proposed by the culture of the country. Having a good model of moral education curriculum based on religious doctrines, which is the objective of this research, prepares the ground for designing a comprehensive curriculum in the field of religious education. Using a descriptive – analytical approach and library resources, this paper studies and brings out the main features of a moral education curriculum in the light of 'Allamah Misbah views.

Key words: education, ethics, principles, methods, moral education, curriculum.

 

 

Knowledge of Education; the Acceptable Condition of Educational Sciences

Ali Reza A'rafi* / Seyyed Naqi Moosawi**

Abstract

The present paper aims at investigating the status quo of educational sciences and suggesting an acceptable condition and an ideal orientation of educational studies. The research method is descriptive-analytical. Two theories , i.e. "unified structure" and "relative structure" on the nature, unity o plurality and scientific independence of educational sciences have been proposed to expound the status quo. The viewpoint on unified nature of educational sciences and unified structure has been established through evidence and proved to be acceptable. However, since the viewpoint on unified structure has some deficiencies, it has been proposed to establish knowledge of education by deepening the viewpoint on unified structure. The various aspects and prerequisites for this thought have been elucidated in order to theorize this idea. "Knowledge of education" constitutes this proposal with its comprehensive view that includes all the dimensions of education, and it uses manifold methods in educational researches. While this knowledge depends in its argument on inter-disciplinary knowledge entitled "educational sciences", this kind of knowledge keeps its own interaction with their research findings and creates specialized trends.

Key words: educational sciences, knowledge of education, independent identity of educational sciences.

 

 

The Relationship between Training and Education with Emphasis on Islam's Viewpoint

Ali Hemmat Banari*

Abstract

"Training" and "education" are two key concepts in man's scientific and spiritual life which have always been mentioned together. The question that arises is, Are these two concepts alien to each other and are located next to one another haphazardly or they are interrelated? The present paper seeks to answer these kinds of questions through an analytical- documentary method. There are six kinds of relationship between these two concepts, among the soundest of which is the intermixing and interweaving relationship. Although education and purification come in the Quranic verses next to each other, we can infer from the way they are located together that there is an interwoven and inseparable relationship in their contents. Furthermore, although in the traditions the two concepts of training and education or education and purification do not come next to each other, the two concepts "science and scientist" have been used as one of the direct outcomes of extensive training alongside the manifestations of education and purification. When we study the traditions closely, we realize the inseparability and interrelation of education and training.

Key words: training, education, educational system.

 

 

Providing a "General Model of Adult Religious Education in Quran" with Emphasis on the Educator's Duties

Seyyed Mohammad Sadiq Moosawi Nasab*

Abstract

Education is a process which should be analyzed and whose stages should be defined. Researchers should elucidate the path of education by studying man's existential dimensions and recognizing the ways through which the educator can influence the trainee. The result of such a study can be offered as a "model". When educators put this model into practice, their work will be fast and accurate, and it will be possible for them evaluate their educational activities.

The present investigation is founded on the Quranic verses and the accounts of prophets' educational lifestyle as narrated in this divine book. The research method is thematic commentary. First, the relevant Qur'anic verses have been compiled, classified and analyzed. According to these propositions, a five –stage model has been proposed in order to devise the path to be followed by the instructor of religion. These five stages are as follows: 1. acquiring qualification; 2. establishing relationship; 3. invitation to a monotheistic attitude; 4. invitation to religious life; and 5. evaluation and continuation of education.

Key words: educator, educator's duties, religious education, monotheistic attitude, prophets' lifestyle.
