Using OLS methodology, the study investigates the dynamics of inequality from 1980 to 2021 and finds that increased openness has varying effects on inequality, tending to increase it. The study also provides statistical details of the normal distribution of inequality, GDP, and openness. The OLS regression results reveal that GDP has an insignificant positive impact on inequality, while openness has a considerable detrimental effect, increasing poverty by 1%. The study also tests the constant elasticity of GDP and openness and provides insights for policymakers to address inequality issues. The findings contribute to the ongoing discourse on the critical issue of income inequality in Pakistan and provide a basis for evidence-based policymaking. </span></p> Imtiaz Ahmed Copyright (c) 2023 2023-04-06 2023-04-06 2 2 1 9 The Shifting Landscape of Reform Judaism: Reevaluating Sacred Texts and their Role in Modernity <table> <tbody> <tr> <td width="434"> <p>This article explores the emergence of Reform Judaism as a modern movement that challenges traditional notions of religious authority and dogma within the Jewish faith. Instead of prioritizing the historical understanding of Torah's divine authority, Reform Judaism places importance on inclusivity, flexibility, and individual spiritual beliefs. The movement seeks to create a broad-based theological "big tent," capable of accommodating diverse beliefs and practices. The emergence of Reform Judaism has raised questions about the role and purpose of religion in modern society and the extent to which it can adapt to evolving needs. However, the emphasis on individual autonomy and inclusivity has resulted in a more diverse and inclusive religious landscape. The movement's willingness to reinterpret sacred texts to align with contemporary values has led to a more dynamic and responsive religious tradition.</p> </td> </tr> </tbody> </table> Syeda Sadia Salma Copyright (c) 2023 2023-04-06 2023-04-06 2 2 10 21 المنهج القرآني لتنظيم الأسرة و طرق تحقيقه: دراسة نظرية في ضوء التفسير"مفاتيح الغيب" للإمام فخرالدين الرازي <p>This paper aims to elaborate various aspects of family system and its well-organized and smooth flow as inferred by <em>Imām Fakhral-Dīn Muhammad bin ‘Umar al-Rāzī</em> in his treatise <em>al</em>-<em>Tafsīr al- Kabīr </em>also called as <em>Mafātīḥ al-Ghayb. </em>The brief introduction of <em>Imām al-Rāzīhas</em> also been discussed in this article along with what al-Rāzī explained regarding family structure and its ingredients and elements from <em>Qur’ānic</em> perspective.

The Muhammadan Sharia contains a comprehensive solution to all human issues. Sufism and its adherents have adequately and fully explained this. Islam has been portrayed as a harsh system and a source of terror by a group of self-interpreting Islamic rules due to the convenience and negligence of the Muslim populace. Islam has also been linked to concepts like terrorism, suicide bombers, and gunpowder. In such cases, it is imperative to present all of humanity with a true view of Islam and the religion's true face. Following first best centuries&nbsp;((خیرالقرون the Sufis and the Saints attained a sizable number in faraway cities and carried out the challenging duty of propagating Islam. Time has also caused the Sufi religion and their homes to lose sight of their original intent. Sufism's revival is the answer to all of humanity's issues, which have been causing constant anxiety in people's hearts. The Holy Qur'an outlines guiding principles for all aspects of a person's life and is the last inspired manifesto for human guidance. The Holy Quran makes no reference of the term "Sufi" or Sufis. Yet, the Holy Quran makes mention of all of the Sufi characteristics.This component of the Sufi way of life makes it clear that Allah, through His chosen servants in the world and the throne, is making reference of the early and late Sufis who lived their entire lives in memory of Allah. The manifestations of the fulfilment of this heavenly promise can be observed all over the nation during the blessed ceremonies(عرس) of saints and Sufis.

Muslim scholars have introduced numerous forms of explanation for Quranic verses since the revelation of the holy book. This discussion has the most significant discourse titled, <em>"Aḥkām-ul-Qurʾān" or "Ayāt al-aḥkām"(</em>verses of the Qur'an from which the religious rulings can be extracted). Indeed, the most basic source of Qur'anic commentary is the Holy Qur'an itself. &nbsp;All matters concerning human life are related to it in one sense or another. The correct application of Islam is based on a correct understanding of Allah's direction. Without tafsir, there would be no right understanding of various verses of the Quran. Qur'anic scholarship in the Subcontinent not only adhered to the classical heritage of Qur'anic studies, but also added a significant number of new avenues and unorthodox trends to various Qur'anic discourses and subjects. The purpose of this paper is to explain how differences in word construction with the same meaning can affect Islamic law. Its basic objective is to describe an overview of the characteristics of the development of Quranic interpretation methods, or tafsir, in the history of Quranic sciences. It explores the methodology of deriving rulings from the Holy Quran with special reference to the principles of Islamic jurisprudence practiced in the subcontinent.</p> Dr. Anwarullah Copyright (c) 2023 2023-04-06 2023-04-06 2 2 13 32
