Monotheism (Tawhid) is the most fundamental belief in Islam. So, it is obligatory to acquire knowledge on Tawhid from its authentic sources. Of course, the Holy Prophet (PBUH), His companions (May Allah be pleased with them) and Ahl-e-Bayt-e-Athar (A.S.) are the principal sources for reliable teachings on Tawhid. In this regard, two articles extracted from the teachings of Imam Reza (A.S.) entitled as "The Monotheistic Teachings of Islam" and "Principles of Debate with the Followers of Religions & Sects" are included in the publication of 52nd issue that quench the thirst of the seekers of Monotheistic teachings and propose the principals of debate with the followers of various religions and sects. "A Look at the Administrative Principles & Policies of Hazrat Ali (A.S.)", is another article that describes the excellent principles and policies of Islamic statehood. 4th article of this issue represents a research based review of the doctrinal challenges involved in the establishment of the Qur'anic ideal society.
The Orientalists and enemies of Islam have accused the Islam as a religion of violence, terrorism and the sword. So, the next two articles prove that Islam spreads out the message of peace and reconciliation. The seventh and eighth articles are related to Hali and Baba Bulleh Shah's poetry taking into account the aspect of social reform and humanization factor of the poetry. The 9th article reviews the practice of the Holy Prophet (PBUH) and the impediments He came across during preaching of Islam. This article suggests the methodology for confronting the same challenges in the present age. The tenth article of this issue entitled as “The Relationship of Social Behavior with Suicidal Ideation” seeks to find the psychological causes of suicide and its subsequent move towards suicide attacks. Regarding the solution of the economic challenges for our country, the eleventh article of the current issue is entitled with: “Values and Wellbeing in Pakistan.” Hopefully the current issue of the scholarly research journal "Quarterly Noor-e-Marfat" will be well received in the academic circles and will suggest practical steps towards resolving our religious and social problems.
