(Theoretical Bases of the Religious Science (the Model of Broad Assessment in the Religious Science)

The question of “religious science” has become one of the main discussions of the Muslim thinkers and intellectuals in recent decades. Observing the crises and damages of the western science on the one hand and backwardness of the Islamic societies on the other, they have tried to redefine the sciences with a religious attitude. 

Religious attitude towards sciences has adherents in the west and once again the issue of relationship between science and religion and the religiously-inclined science has found its way into some intellectual arguments. Rapid development of the chairs of science and religion and the literature in this area, suggests that it is central and completely up to date in the scientific circles. 

There are various epistemological and theological challenges in the way of the production of religious science. Here, we have investigated the challenges related to the study of religion and the possibility of religious science has been examined from this perspective.

Traditional Fundamentals of the Religious Science

A significant source of the religious science is “the Sunna of the Prophet (pbuh) and the family of the house (ahl al-bayt) that includes their sayings, deeds and tacit approval (taqrir). The most important issues addressed in this project include: proving the authoritativeness of the sunna, response to doubts, pathology of hadith and its application in the religious science.

Usul Bases of the Religious Science

The application of usul (source methodology in Islamic jurisprudence) in “the religious science” constitutes the central topic of this study. First, a history of the usul and jurisprudence (fiqh) and the questions of the science of usul al-fiqh will be examined from the beginning of its formative period, and a comparative research in the field of the origin of major usul topics, most of which go back to the sunni works, will be carried out. Then, the issues applicable in the production of the religious science have been selected and raised along with new topics as a basis for the application of the science of usul in the production of the religious science.

Advanced Legal Methodology

Lecture notes of fiqh (jurisprudence) and usul lectures of Ayatullah khu’i and other scholars, taken by the late Ayatullah Abbas Nizhad in an eloquent manner, will be published with a useful edition and an up to date format.
