Reference administration is considered as the core of the library administrations. A reference administration is a definitive objective of all library administrations. Reference administrations have assumed a focal position in library and data administrations. They are additionally viewed as customized administrations since much of the time an individual discourse happens between a client and a reference administrator. The Reference and Information Services Section tends to all parts of reference works, in a wide range of libraries, in all areas of the world. Current interests include the new electronic condition and the subsequent changes in reference work, job of the reference custodian, and the nature of reference administrations. Reference administrations may differ from library to library, yet most libraries have data where help from an administrator is accessible. At last, the paper proposes some new zones of research that might be embraced to improve the arrangement of customized data administrations or reference administration in libraries.</p> 2023-06-29T00:00:00+00:00 Copyright (c) 2023 Journal of Quranic and Social Studies Asma Barlas’ Criticism of Hadith as a Tool of Tafsir: Critical Analysis of Feminist’s Predominant Narrative 2023-09-30T21:06:37+00:00 Dr. Ibrahim Ilyasu Adam <p>This paper evaluates the hermeneutical methodology of Asma Barlas, in critiquing Muslims’ intellectual traditions with a special reference to the Prophetic tradition, the Sunnah, and its relevance in understanding Islam. In Islamic orthodoxy, the Sunnah occupies the second position as a source of Islamic law. More importantly, it serves as practical explanation of the Qur’ān. Consequently, the Sunnah has become indispensable in understanding the Qur’ān. Conversely, Barlas uses her hermeneutical methodology to challenge the authenticity of the Sunnah and its role in understanding the Qur’ān.<strong>1</strong> Her central argument is that using the Sunnah to interpret the Qur’ān is problematic as it undercuts the doctrine of revelation’s self-sufficiency and the interpretive flexibility inherent in it, putting a methodological closure on how the Qur’ān could ‘‘legitimately’’ be read <strong>2 </strong>Her criticism of hadith as a tool of <em>tafs</em><em>īr</em> is specifically remarkable.&nbsp; This paper, therefore, critically analyzes Barlas’ hermeneutical methodology in relation to her criticism of <em>hadith</em> as an important ingredient of <em>tafs</em><em>īr.</em> It argues that <em>hadith</em> is an indispensable tool in making sound Qur’anic interpretation and in proper understanding of the Qur’ān as a source of guidance to humanity. It then analyses Barlas’ arguments making references to her intellectual inadequacy. The paper concludes that Barlas’ argument on the position of the Sunnah in Islam is simplistic; while not denying that a significant amount of <em>hadith</em> were forged and integrated into <em>tafs</em><em>īr,</em> it must be stressed that this forgery was not allowed to go unchallenged</p> 2023-06-29T00:00:00+00:00 Copyright (c) 2023 Journal of Quranic and Social Studies عورتوں کے معاشی اور سماجی حقوق، اسلام اور شریعت کے نظرمیں 2023-05-22T08:24:56+00:00 Nahida Jamal Dr. Shabana Qazi <p>Islam is a religion that showed immense gratitude towards women. rescued them from the depths of humiliation and degradation, when they were It has at their lowest point. and the acceptance of their existence was being denied. then the noble prophet, peace be upon him, came as a Blessing to all mankind, and saved humanity from the clutches of the fire and rescued women from that pit. he granted boundless rights to the woman, who were buried alive and bestowed upon them countless privileges in social life. the importance of women in family and societal life should be acknowledged, and responsibilities should be entrusted to them according to their nature. on other hand Western civilization also grants some rights to women, but it is not based on their status. However, the noble Prophet, peace be upon him, grants all the respect and rights to women based on their status alone. He bestows upon them all the dignity and rights that they deserve, regardless of whether they choose to fulfil societal responsibilities or not. after a period of debate, scrutiny, and protest, the current era acknowledged some fundamental rights of women, and this recognition is considered an accomplishment of this era. since this recognition belongs to Islam, it first granted women the rights from which they had been deprived for a long time. Islam did not grant these rights because women demanded them, but because these were inherent rights of women, that they deserved to have. Islam has established the position and status of women in society, which is free from both modern and ancient oppressive customs. it neither allows the objectification of women nor permits them to be unjustly oppressed, and it is not dependent on any freedom attained by Europe.</p> 2023-06-29T00:00:00+00:00 Copyright (c) 2023 Journal of Quranic and Social Studies اصحاب صفہ کی عملی خدمات کا ایک تحقیقی جائزہ 2023-05-05T04:10:39+00:00 Taj Muhammad Fehmida Baloch <p>In the history of the rise and fall of nations, if one searches for one of the most effective history-making factors, it can be said without a doubt that education comes first. This is the reason why Allah appointed man as his caliph and representative on earth, the first thing he equipped him with was knowledge, and the task he assigned to all his prophets was the centrality of learning the book, wisdom and self-purification. Got it &nbsp;Many attempts have been made in the past years to understand the relationship between education and Islam and to create a true Islamic spirit in the educational system. As soon as one hears the name of Suffah and the companions of Suffah, the mind travels in the world of imagination and stops at the canopy or hut which was situated at the north-east corner of the Prophet's Mosque. Who had no house, no door, no land. Dar-e-Arqam was an Islamic training center in Makkah. Muslims used to pray, learn the Qur'an and receive training in religious and worldly matters under the guidance of the Messenger of Allah (peace be upon him). If Madinah became the center of Islam, then it was going to have the honor of becoming the center of the Islamic state. Bait al-Maqdis was the Qibla for the first sixteen months of Madani's life. When Baitullah was declared as the Qiblah, the wall of the previous Qiblah was still standing on the back side of the Prophet's Mosque. Rasulullah's Heli ordered to put a canopy over it. He was named Suffah or Zillah. Apart from this roof, there was no wall around it. The status of the educational institution of Suffah was that of a residential seminary of that period. Where the travelers and poor students were equipped with fine education. In the educational institution of Suffah, the Messenger of Allah was actually preparing human capital. Limited research work has been done. The importance of this research to develop the education and training system of Suffah on Islamic lines is undeniable.</p> 2023-06-29T00:00:00+00:00 Copyright (c) 2023 Journal of Quranic and Social Studies ’’دی میسج آف قرآن‘‘ از محمداسد؛ کا منہج و اسلوب کا ایک جائزہ 2023-08-28T11:19:46+00:00 Asma Aziz Shama Naz Fozia Tahseen <p>The Holy Quran is the Book of Guidance and code of conduct for all mankind till the occurance of the Qiyama. &nbsp;The language of the Quran is Arabic, and the quality of this Arabic is quite different from Arabic that is used in daily life of Arabs.

Regard The Importance of Collective Ijtihad in Islam, Its Significance can be Traced Back to The Time of The Prophet Muhammad (Peace Be Upon Him) and the Era of The Rightly Guided Caliphs. The Quranic Injunction Emphasizing Consultation (Shura) and Social Deliberation Is Prominent in Islamic Governance and Politics. Islam Encourages Muslim Rulers To Engage in Consultation With Their Subjects on Various Social Matters, as Evidenced By The Quranic Verse That Highlights The Importance of Mutual Consultation (Shura)”<strong> امر هم شوری بینهم</strong><strong>“</strong>Among Them. This Principle of Consultation Is Not Limited to Religious Matters but Is Also Applicable to Political, Social, And Administrative Affairs. Thus, Islamic Governance Encourages Consultation and Social Deliberation, and It Provides a Foundation for The Legitimacy of Collective Ijtihad. The Concept of Shura, as Exemplified in Islamic Governance, Supports the Notion of Collective Ijtihad, and Justifies its Place in Islamic Jurisprudence.</p> 2023-06-29T00:00:00+00:00 Copyright (c) 2023 Journal of Quranic and Social Studies Translation of Holy Quran in Brahui Language 2023-05-02T16:32:56+00:00 liaquat Ali Sani Hafsa Nazeer <p>This research explores the history and significance of the translation of the Holy Quran into Brahui language, from its earliest translation in 1914 to the present day.
