The effects of thinking and reasoning on Islamic life style
Fatemeh Javanbakht, Seyyed Ebrahim Hoseini
Life style is a modern term used to indicate a particular way of living. The aim of this paper is to establish the fact that Islam has provided man with comprehensive and complete instructions for all dimensions of his life since 1400 years ago. Using these instructions could guarantee the redemption of man. In this research, it has been tried to document thinking and reasoning as the most essential bases of Islamic life style according to Imam Ali’s words in Nahjul-Balagha and to elaborate on the impediments to Islamic life style and instances of its performance, which has not been researched before. The findings show that it is possible to infer the best and most comprehensive ways of life style by the careful examination of the Holy Quran and the words of the Holy Prophet and his family members (Ahl-al-Beit).
