In the same way, man also tries to beautify himself in daily affairs. “Side Puff” or “cup cutting” is becoming very common in the society nowadays. The word (قزع) is used in a hadith related to this. People in the society are doing it ignorantly or intentionally. What Sharia said about “side puff”? Is this permissible? Was this cutting present in the time of the Prophet? If a person does this kind of cutting which we call cup cutting, side puff cutting, then what is its sharia status? In addition, what is the ruling on such a hairdresser? What is the legal status of cutting and what is the Sunnah method of cutting hair? There is nothing wrong with having your haircut, but it is important to keep in mind that the haircut is within the bounds of Sharia. The haircut should be done in such a way that it does not resemble any non-Muslim, nor does it have the shape of hair in such a way that it imitates a non-Muslim immoral person. Our temperament has become such that they think they are beautiful, they do not have to be beautiful. Because what looks beautiful to you may look ugly in the mirror of another environment or culture.</p> Muhammad Waheed U Zaman Muhammad Farooq Siddique Dr. Muhammad Ashfaq Copyright (c) 2024 Al Khadim Research Journal of Islamic Culture and Civilization 2024-03-12 2024-03-12 5 1 1 14 A research review of the causes and reasons for the increase in divorce in Muslim society <p>Understanding the reasons and causes behind the increasing trend of divorce in Muslim societies is crucial for addressing this issue effectively. The prevalence of divorce is influenced by a combination of various factors in these societies. Societal changes, shifting cultural norms, and economic developments play significant roles in this trend. Changes in family structures, financial pressures, and educational advancements contribute to the rising rates of divorce. Furthermore, legal and religious reforms also impact the prevalence of divorce. The expansion of women's rights and educational opportunities has led to increased awareness of divorce rights among women. Legal changes aimed at empowering women and providing them with more rights in divorce proceedings have contributed to this trend. This research provides valuable insights into the different dimensions of Muslim social systems and helps understand the reasons behind the increasing prevalence of divorce. It underscores the importance of addressing societal, cultural, economic, and legal factors to effectively tackle the rising divorce rates in Muslim societies.</p> Dr. Mahmood Ahamd Dr. Muhammad Zia Ullah Sidra Shah Muhammad Copyright (c) 2024 Al Khadim Research Journal of Islamic Culture and Civilization 2024-03-31 2024-03-31 5 1 15 24 The Causes and Remedies of Growing Islamophobia in the West in Contemporary Perspectives <p>Islamophobia is a complex issue rooted in historical tensions and contemporary misunderstandings. Emerging from early Islamic encounters with Zionist forces, its modern manifestation gained prominence after 9/11. In Western societies, Muslims often face unjustified resentment and hostility, fueled by media misrepresentations, demographic shifts, and deep-seated prejudices. The rise of Islamophobia reflects a clash of ideologies, including Europe's struggle with diversity and migration. Overcoming this psychological ailment demands concerted efforts to foster understanding, challenge stereotypes, and promote inclusivity. By confronting the underlying causes and biases, societies can aspire towards harmony and mutual respect, transcending the divisive grip of Islamophobia.</p> Muhammad Zawar Dr. Khawar Anjum Dr. Muhammad Zia Ullah Copyright (c) 2024 Al Khadim Research Journal of Islamic Culture and Civilization 2024-03-31 2024-03-31 5 1 25 34 Urbanization Trends and Their Effect on Human Development in Balochistan <p>This research study investigates the intricate relationship between urbanization trends and human development in the context of Balochistan, a region characterized by its unique socioeconomic and geographical challenges. As urbanization rapidly transforms the landscape of Balochistan, understanding its multifaceted impact on human development is essential for informed policy formulation and sustainable development initiatives. To explore this relationship, a mixed-methods approach is employed. Quantitative analysis involves the examination of demographic data, including population growth rates, urbanization patterns, and demographic transitions over the past few decades. The Human Development Index (HDI) serves as a key quantitative indicator, allowing for the assessment of changes in living standards, education, and healthcare within the urbanizing regions of Balochistan. Qualitative methods complement the quantitative analysis, involving in-depth interviews and focus group discussions with key stakeholders, policymakers, and residents of urban and peri-urban areas. These qualitative insights provide a nuanced understanding of the social, economic, and environmental dynamics associated with urbanization, shedding light on the lived experiences and perceptions of individuals affected by these trends. The research also employs Geographic Information System (GIS) mapping to visually represent the spatial distribution of urbanization and its correlation with human development indicators. This spatial analysis enhances the identification of disparities and hotspots within Balochistan, offering valuable insights for targeted interventions and policy recommendations. Through this comprehensive research methodology, the study aims to contribute to the existing literature on urbanization and human development while providing evidence-based recommendations for policymakers and development practitioners working towards sustainable and inclusive growth in Balochistan. The findings of this research are anticipated to inform strategies that harness the positive aspects of urbanization while addressing challenges to ensure a balanced and equitable improvement in human development outcomes across the region.</p> Dr. Huma Zafar Dr. Siraj Bashir Ms. Tahira Naudani Ms. Shahzia Aziz Copyright (c) 2024 Al Khadim Research Journal of Islamic Culture and Civilization 2024-03-13 2024-03-13 5 1 1 42 Conservation and use of rainwater in Pakistan in the light of Sirah <p>The conservation and utilization of rainwater in Pakistan, viewed through the lens of the Sirah (the biography of Prophet Muhammad), present a holistic approach to addressing the country's pressing water scarcity issues. The Sirah offers valuable insights into responsible resource management, equity, and community cooperation, all of which can guide sustainable rainwater harvesting practices.In the spirit of the Sirah's emphasis on equity and compassion, Pakistan can adopt inclusive policies for rainwater harvesting that benefit all citizens, regardless of their socioeconomic status. Initiatives to promote rainwater harvesting, such as providing incentives for low-income households to implement rainwater collection systems, can ensure that the benefits of rainwater are distributed justly and reach those most in need. Furthermore, the Sirah's teachings on frugality and avoidance of waste align with the principles of rainwater harvesting. Rainwater, a precious resource in water-stressed regions like Pakistan, should not be squandered. The Prophet's example of using water sparingly can inspire individuals to adopt responsible water practices, such as fixing leaks and using rainwater for non-potable purposes. Rainwater harvesting is an investment in long-term water security, a concept emphasized in Sirah's teachings. In conclusion, the Sirah offers a moral and practical framework for the conservation and utilization of rainwater in Pakistan. By embracing principles of equity, community cooperation, frugality, and future planning, Pakistan can address its water scarcity challenges in a manner that aligns with the teachings of the Sirah and ensures a more resilient and water-secure future for all its citizens. Rainwater, when harnessed, can be a source of abundance and a reflection.</p> Dr. Muhammad Karim Khan Dr. Syed Hamid Farooq Bukhari Dr. Mahmood Ahamd Dr. Muhammad Zia Ullah Imtiaz Ur Rehman Copyright (c) 2024 Al Khadim Research Journal of Islamic Culture and Civilization 2024-03-31 2024-03-31 5 1 43 55
