About the Journal

Welcome to Maarif Research Journal (MRJ), a distinguished, bi-lingual (English and Urdu), peer-reviewed publication under the auspices of the Islamic Research Academy, Karachi. MRJ stands as a beacon of scholarly excellence, fostering rigorous inquiry and critical discourse within the realms of Islamic Studies and Arabic language and literature.

At MRJ, we are committed to upholding the highest standards of academic integrity, offering a platform for researchers to contribute to the intellectual landscape through empirical investigations, conceptual frameworks, literature reviews, and insightful case studies. Each submission undergoes meticulous review by our esteemed Editorial Board and Referees, ensuring scholarly rigor and relevance in every published article, as mandated by the Higher Education Commission (HEC).

The journal is driven by a set of aims and objectives that underscore our dedication to advancing Islamic interpretation of arts and knowledge, critiquing diverse discourses, and fostering solution-based research that addresses contemporary challenges facing the Islamic Ummah and humanity at large. MRJ embraces diverse viewpoints rooted in original scholarship, providing a nurturing environment for young scholars to thrive and engage in healthy academic competition.

While MRJ serves as a forum for diverse perspectives, the opinions expressed therein are those of the authors, and do not necessarily reflect the views of Maarif Research Journal or the Islamic Research Academy Karachi.

We invite scholars, researchers, and thinkers to join us in our quest for knowledge, dialogue, and enlightenment as we navigate the complexities of the modern world through the lens of Islamic scholarship. Together, let us embark on a journey of discovery and intellectual exploration, guided by the principles of integrity, diversity, and scholarly excellence.
