Reading Bruce Chatwin's Songlines where he describes how the songlines work amongst the aborigines of Australia, creating a spiritual network of Australia based on individual totems and their narratives. not only do we, therefore, have religion, but also psychology, geography and its symbolism (I recently read a Muslim writer who claimed the latter for Islam) but a sense of knowledge connected to both individuals and tribes.
Does this reach back in time thereby representing a means of transmitting knowledge over a long distance but also preserving it?
Relevant answer
Answer
Indigenous Australians connected the song to the landscape and totem. Chadwick points out that the original Greek legends, although many came from the Middle East, are based on totems and could have begun in the same way. Early Greek poetry was connected to song, with the Greek bard a singer.

Islamic Psychology is a new field combining Islamic Studies and Psychology in an effort to Islamize the field of Psychology to fit Islamic practicing Muslims' [whatever the sect they affiliated to as the umbrella that covers Islam and Muslims are very vast, wide and colourful diversity] needs. It was founded by the late Prof. Malik Badri Babiker who was based in International Islamic University Malaysia (IIUM) for a very long time away from his home country in Sudan since he first experienced dissonance between being a Muslim practicing Western psychology in his study days more than a half century ago.
Alhamdulillah, it was progressively developing as he would wish to see and more but the journals that the associations that advocate this budding field are new like established in 2018, thus, commonsensically still not indexed in Scopus list yet like those under International Association of Islamic Psychology and International Association of Muslim Psychologists. Even the mother journal of all Islamization efforts that was championed by International Islamic Thoughts (IIIT), which is previously named American Journal of Islamic Social Sciences, had to change its name into the American Journal of Islam and Society-AJIS [for no announced reason] also no longer indexed in the Scopus list [also without any apparent reason] although already established since 1984.
Most of the journals tried, had excused for a shortage of suitable/compatible peer-reviewers database who are multidisciplinarily able to see the Arabic language part being translated and the interaction between them in the interpretation of the Holy Qur'an, which some researchers in the social sciences specifically in Psychology considered it superstitious reverence to refer everything to it more specifically for those who were convinced with secular stance and lense of worldview in life. Thus, got high tendency of declining submission like it was being marginalized for being 'religious' in the beginning of the founding firmness of the late Prof Malik Badri on the dissonance of the mainstream worldview in practice to give freedom to the Muslims to feel fitting with what is practiced in living and believing.
So, what is our alternatives?
It takes time to reach the established level the Western had reached after the post-colonialism.

It was observed globally that by putting mask on face reduced the transmission of coronavirus which is already stated in Islam. Moreover, by praying 5 times a days is essential in Islam in which wazu (gargling mouth and rinsing nose) which are two steps out of five steps are used to prevent the infection....
Relevant answer
Answer
I think that perhaps I have not understood the question well and, by virtue of this, it seems to want to affirm, and not so much to ask, that there is an impact or relationship (it is supposed to be preventive or protective), but the question itself does not clarify towards what (in fact, it says verbatim: Impact of the veil (hijab) and Nimaz (five sentences in Islam)?), it must be SUPPOSED to be regarding COVID-19; is that so ?.
Well, if the meaning of the question is such, which I repeat, it is rather a statement or assertion, we would have to differentiate two aspects:
1st: The hijab, in and of itself, little or nothing prevents COVID-19 as it does not cover either the mouth or the nose, just as neither the turban, nor the scarf, nor the tarbush or fez do of men and since its use is a custom (according to some) or a religious precept (according to others), it does not seem reasonable, if it is a religious precept, that God the Merciful would have wanted to protect one sex from COVID (on the assumption that the hijab would protect) and not the other ... or vice versa.
In the same way, wazu or wudu or ablution does not prevent it either, no matter how much it is a purification rite (but more of the soul than of the body, although also of the latter) and much less if such wudu is "dry" and "minor. "Without going into that Sunnis and Shiites, respecting both, interpret and do it differently.
2nd: I have said the above as a Healthcare Professional that I am; As a believer, in my case Christian, I have been brought up with the utmost affection and respect for Islam, which I know deeply since my mother died when I was a child and I was raised by a Muslim nanny, may God have in his glory that I loved like a mother, when I was with her and out of respect and affection for her, if it coincided with Ramadan I would fulfill it and I was "Ramadaní" too, nor would I eat pork at home with her, etc. For all this, as a convinced and respectful believer, I believe that it is good and healthy for each one, if he is a believer, to adequately comply with the precepts of his Religion, but not to mix one thing with another; In our case, this means that it seems correct to use the hijab as a personal decision, but not as an obligation (many scholars say that its use is not a precept, although it is not the issue now) and, of course, the Nimaz with its corresponding Wazu or Wudu; but from there to say that this is preventive of COVID-19, it seems to me, with all due respect, a recklessness and, even, "tempt God" and not love your neighbor, due to the risk of contagion, to ALWAYS leave in His Hands MERCIFUL something that is OUR RESPONSIBILITY: "Pray as if everything depended on God but Work as if everything depended on you" or, as the Roman Law said: "the mule dies for its owner, then it is he who must take care of it". Thank you.

Relevant answer
Answer
Man is a being that has to live with his fellows due to his nature. As a human and social being, there must be rules that determine their rights, responsibilities and duties in social life. Because a life without rules means turmoil and conflict. Keeping away from turmoil and conflict is determined by the values ​​of the society. These values ​​and rules are based on religion, laws, customs and traditions. The rules that have the widest scope of social values ​​are the rules of ethics. Because all the rules that express value in short, the universal values, the orders and prohibitions of religion, the boundaries determined by the laws are absolutely connected with morality in one aspect. This is the point that draws our attention in its definition as a word. Morality is the whole of the value judgments that show how the qualities that are about to be natural and how they should behave or not behave in relations with the being and with people, including the human being. In another aspect, Morality can also be defined as the formal or informal rules that are expected to be followed by individuals in a society and the rightful performance of the duties and duties that individuals are responsible for. If morality is lived in accordance with the rules, it is called good morality, if it is violating the rules and acting against the rules, it is called bad morality. Morality includes teachable behavior. While people who are educated in line with the factors that constitute the values ​​of the society have good morals, people who are educated on the contrary to these values ​​have bad morals. Good morality enhances both the inner world and the outer world of a person. Self-control is very important in moral education. The values ​​that people believe in maintaining this self-control have an important place. The belief system to which a person is bound and the environment he lives in are the determining factors in shaping his moral behavior. The values ​​of the society in which a person lives are shaped by beliefs, cultures, customs, traditions and customs and laws imposed by the state. In this report, we are thinking about the shaping of moral rules, religion in general, and the sense of ihsan and murâkaba from Sufi concepts in particular. It is possible for a person to have a solid character, to acquire a personality, to be equipped with good morals, to be in harmony with his inner world and to have the consciousness of being under surveillance by a superior being (Allah). This idea is called "the feeling of bestowal" in the religious literature and "murâkabe education" in the Sufi literature. A person who acts with the consciousness that he is under the supervision of Allah at every stage of life and that his every behavior is seen and recorded by Allah will naturally have superior morality. The feeling of goodwill is that people pay attention to their behavior as if they see God. While worshiping as if we see God in our prayers in particular, having this consciousness in our social relations, education understanding, business life, in short, in every moment, gives us good morals, while having the consciousness that God keeps us under surveillance in our inner world will contribute to the consistency of our inside and outside

The Waqf (confined endowment) was one of the foundations of Islamic Renaissance that has led to a wide activity in scientific, architectural, and health-care movements. It has also resulted the establishment of several institutions which were integrated and vital for the community. These institutions have worked on improvising solutions to new problems. Early Muslims have been racing to establish their own waqf emphasizing the peculiarity of the different goals of each one.

Bradley Autry quoting the Athanasian Creed doesn’t answer the question. The Athanasian Creed gets first prize for being confusing in practically every clause.
For example as pointed out by Faith Bays the Son was begotten by the Holy Spirit yet the Athanasian Creed states the Son was begotten of the Father alone (clause 22).
Nor was the Athanasian Creed authored by the apostles, an official church council nor even Athanasius himself. In fact, its origin is unknown except that it appears to have been anonymously authored within the Catholic church several centuries after the New Testament was written (Krueger 1976).
Yet despite the inbuilt admission that the Trinity is “incomprehensible” (clause 12) it audaciously mandates wholehearted belief “without doubt” accompanied by the threat of perishing eternally (clauses 2 & 44).
The uncritical acceptance of this absurdity across both Catholic and Protestant Christianity is an own goal in any debate against agnosticism or atheism.

Answer
Dear Colleague,
I am not sure whether I understood everything correctly. Let me summarize with my own words what I picked up:
Research phenomenon: experiences of consumers with Islamic labelling during purchasing
Epistemological stance: phenomenological view
Research design: undisclosed (exploratory part? evaluation part?)
Research approach: thematic analysis is mentioned, but it can be many things
Coding approach: undisclosed, even the type of data available for you is not specified.
In the lack of the above important pieces of information, the advice cannot be else but a generic one: If your research goal is to explore and interpret themes (patterns of meaning) within qualitative data, then (depending on your research data, their representation and coding) you may consider: grounded theory, narrative analysis, discourse analysis, concept dependence mapping, qualitative framework synthesis, and/or interpretative phenomenological analysis as qualitative evaluation method.

My question is why there is distrust as we can experience in different setting for example recently there were rejection of Polio vaccination campaign in Minnesota Somali community because they were afraid ( or thinking)of getting 'Autism' from Polio vaccination and if I am not mistaken this happened for the first time since Somali migrated to Minn. and it is the most Somali populated cities in whole America. Why there is distrust in such community where there are educated and skilled people in those areas?

I am very interested in this topic. I am a mental health nurse in the UK and have also walked the Camino on a number of occasions. A close friend of mine who is also a nurse supported a fellow Pilgrim on the Camino Way who then had to be admitted to a psychiatric ward - with unusual beliefs of a religious nature. The narrative which psychiatry adds to such experience seems to have a pivotal role in recovery. Often there is a total rejection of personal narrative - and in so doing - missing connection and understanding. I look forward to hearing others views.

However ! With regard to the Quar'an verses you quoted related to "Khamr" i placed them with some other verses in Chapter one of the book i am writing tittled " The history of intoxicants in pre -Islamic era and in the Islamic era " .
My initial Question concerning " the position of Islam on capital position against drug peddlers ".
There is a chapter in the book i am presently writing tittled " The position of Islam on capital punishment against drug peddlers /Saudi Arabia as case study" , which made me seeking for assistance from Islamic Sharia law' scholars or Saudi's Islamic scholars with documented book/paper presentation or any related materials to use as reference , to enable me complete my research also to guide me on sensitising Muslim/non Muslim against the danger of drug dependence and intoxicants .
About the positioned of capital punishment on drug peddlers ;
Below its the Quar'an verse that Islamic countries relied on to impose capital punishment on drug peddlers ;
Surah Al-Maeda, Verse 33:
إِنَّمَا جَزَاءُ الَّذِينَ يُحَارِبُونَ اللَّهَ وَرَسُولَهُ وَيَسْعَوْنَ فِي الْأَرْضِ فَسَادًا أَن يُقَتَّلُوا أَوْ يُصَلَّبُوا أَوْ تُقَطَّعَ أَيْدِيهِمْ وَأَرْجُلُهُم مِّنْ خِلَافٍ أَوْ يُنفَوْا مِنَ الْأَرْضِ ذَٰلِكَ لَهُمْ خِزْيٌ فِي الدُّنْيَا وَلَهُمْ فِي الْآخِرَةِ عَذَابٌ عَظِيمٌ
"The recompense of those who wage war against Allah and His Messenger and do mischief in the land is only that they shall be killed or crucified or their hands and their feet be cut off on the opposite sides, or be exiled from the land. That is their disgrace in this world, and a great torment is theirs in the Hereafter ".
Certainly ! As you said "Islamic jurisprudence does not directly address the question of punishment for drugs" . However, they had on "Mischief makers ". More so, most of the Scholars suggested that a leader has right to decide for the types of punishment on " Mischief makers in the land " (Fasad). ~Source Fiqhussuna .
However ; What Saudi Arabia's Islamic scholars did was "Istinbadil Hukum" with " Qiyas" and categorises drug peddlers/other related crimes among " mischief makers in the land " they relied on the aforementioned verse to apply capital punishment on the offender.
Though, some Islamic scholars have similar viewed as you for disagreeing with killing , including the prominent Nigerian scholars Sheik, Dr. Ahmad Gummi, when i interviewed him about extreme capital punishment on drug peddlers .
Our discussion below ;
I quoted the aforementioned Quar'an verse (Q5 ; 33), and asked him ;
" Sheik ; don't you think Saudi are executing capital punishment on Drug peddlers based on aforesaid verse ?" .
Sheik replied "yes , i am aware, but human soul is very valuable, no one should be taken it without a cause ,he added a drunker should be killed only if he kill someone, he quoted the below Quran vases also supported it with (Bukhari's translation "Illa-bilhaq" from Hadith)" . but he didn't refer Saudi's action as "local law" .
Surah Al-Isra, Verse 33:
وَلَا تَقْتُلُوا النَّفْسَ الَّتِي حَرَّمَ اللَّهُ إِلَّا بِالْحَقِّ وَمَن قُتِلَ مَظْلُومًا فَقَدْ جَعَلْنَا لِوَلِيِّهِ سُلْطَانًا فَلَا يُسْرِف فِّي الْقَتْلِ إِنَّهُ كَانَ مَنصُورًا
"And do not kill anyone which Allah has forbidden, except for a just cause. And whoever is killed (intentionally with hostility and oppression and not by mistake), We have given his heir the authority [(to demand Qisas, Law of Equality in punishment or to forgive, or to take Diya (blood money)]. But let him not exceed limits in the matter of taking life (i.e. he should not kill except the killer only). Verily, he is helped (by athe Islamic law)."
Dr. I am a student seeking for knowledge, please !! Do not hesitate to respond or correct me anytime.

My research is about the relationship between level of cultural knowledge and development of intercultural communication.
My problem is, items in my questionaire reflecting IV which is level of knowledge is true false question which are factual questions.
Eg: Gambling is allowed in Islam religion. (Yes / No)
My DV items which is intercultural development is in likert scale.
So, i cant make correlations using spss to analyze the data. Therefore, I would like to ask whether I can transform the dichotomous question to likert only for analyzing and make correlation.
Tq.
Relevant answer
Answer
Hello Ahmad,
You certainly can correlate the scores in their present form, using either Pearson or Spearman correlations as you see fit (Pearson assumes interval strength data, which would be a relevant concern for the DV items). It doesn't matter that one variable has only two possible values, whereas the other has more.
Further, any attempt to reexpress the dichotomous item into a "Likert-type" scale would not change that correlation (since it would be some form of linear transform).
Good luck with your work.

The fertility of Muslims, which was about 10 per cent higher than that of Hindus before independence, is now nearly 30 per cent higher than the Hindu rate, and the difference according to religion is larger than the difference between the forward and depressed Hindu castes and tribes. While the lower level of contraceptive use among Muslims is the most important factor responsible for the fertility differentials, the use of contraceptives has increased faster among the Muslims in recent times. What could be the possible reasons for the residual effect of religion on fertility and caste on fertility and causes for these disparities in social and economic conditions ?
Relevant answer
Answer
The main reasons are Illiteracy, polygamy, and no use of contraceptives.

Hi Beverly,
I have, off and on, had several run-ins with those who insist that "all the evils of the world" are caused by capitalism. I have tried to point out that capitalism in itself is not "unIslamic", and that a case can be made that it was in fact developed under Islam. Now people are saying that the fundamental problem is fiat money, and that this is responsible for everything (including plastic pollution)! They argue the relative merits of so-called precious metals compared with paper money, which they say has no intrinsic value. I argue that gold too has no intrinsic value - it has only the value that people ascribe to it at the time they choose to buy or sell it.
To cut a long story short, I have decided that I have to write a paper dealing with the way money developed under Islam. I need a sound and solid understanding about conventional monetary theory, and an equally solid understanding of current thinking about the Islamic systems. Is this something in which you are interested, or have looked at at all? Are you interested? Can you point me to any relevant papers?

Dear expert psychologists, is there an expert term or elaboration of some phenomena like the motion states above?
Dear experts in other fields, what do you have in mind regarding the above?
Thank you.
Relevant answer
Answer
Dear Jamism,
"Why do people fail to value people?"-- You ask. As a psychologist, I think that people fail to value people because of many reasons. Some reasons may have to do with people's biological inheritance. Psychopaths, for example, are not able, say, to put on another's shoes and, hence, they are deprived of any empathic concerns for others' well being. Other reasons are situational. If people are born and grow up in a competitive, instead a cooperative, atmosphere and environment it is likely that they fail to value people. Other reasons have to do with people's moral development. The less morally developed people are, the more they are likely to fail to value people. The American psychologist Lawrence Kohlberg, for example, found that people located at his Stage 1 or Stage 2 of moral reasoning are dominated by egocentric interests and desires and, because of this, think, feel and act without taking into account others' needs, interests and concerns.
Around myself, I perceive that a lot of people are, say, dominated by the gospel of money and greed, not the gospel of love, compassion and empathy. When this is the case we have a lot of people that fail to value other people.
Kind regards,
Orlando

Kelly, yes principles that promote a moral standard are very important for providing a framework for modern society. However, standards without Grace through faith in the Lord Jesus Christ is insufficient to deliver us from what causes immorality, which will be prevalent no matter how many soup kitchens you have, or noon day prayers, or Mission stations. You can feed people all you want and pay their light bills, this is very moral and good; however, the person need to be trained for work. He needs help getting a job. Christians will lend a hand in principles, but we must also be concern about the spirit of man. Man was created to fellowship with God. If man is not brought back into fellowship with God through accepting the atonement that Christ offers than we are going to have a problem with an immoral society once we help that man on his feet again. This is a good question. One we should ponder. Horace Bushnell's Moral Influence Theory of Atonement I highly honor. We must understand, that although Paul was trying to explain Grace through faith in the Lord Jesus Christ, he was not knocking morality. In 1 Corinthians 9 Paul ascertains that he keeps the law among Jews and Gentiles.

I am not a believer just an observer, but I have long relations with the Islamic world and I have noticed changes on the periphery of Islam, one being a greater willingness to discuss matters with other cultures, a less fixed approach, no matter recent developments in the Middle East (which itself can be seen as a reaction to globalisation), and also a re-structuring and re-embedding of Islamic ideologies through Western ideas.
I believe that with the present Moslem diaspora this is a crucial time for a religion that for over a thousand years has shielded itself from other cultures' views, claimed at times the superiority of its views as those given by god, and rarely engaged in mutual dialogue (others may not agree).

Globalisation is simply neocolonialism. But as the world gets smaller due to advances in communication technologies and changing social orders, non-Muslims are beginning to discover Islam is Salaam/Shalom/Peace. Nonetheless they are finding it is quite different from what their traditional information sources had alleged (unless, of course, they had read Henry Grady Weaver's Chapter 10 in The Mainspring of Human Progress). Muslims leaving comments above are unanimous in their commentary that Islam is Peace, whereas the European or Euro-American commentators refuse to accept it and persist in their social constructions of exclusivity to "the human race".
