According to Fars News Agency, on Monday, May 26, the third session of the Sohanak Mondays specialized series of meetings in the new year was held with the theme of “explaining the religious and communication messages of the holy month of Ramadan.”
In the specialized meetings of Sohanak Mondays, which are organized by the Faculty of Social Sciences and Communications of the Islamic Azad University, Central Tehran Branch and attended by journalists, students, professors and researchers, an important topic of the day is reviewed and solutions are presented every week.
Hojjat-ul-Islam and Muslims Morteza Jalili, head of the Representation of the Supreme Leader in the Islamic Azad University of Tehran and the Central Tehran Branch, said on the subject of “explaining religious and communication messages of the holy month of Ramadan”: In a general division, religious education is divided into three parts; The section on beliefs and convictions, rules and behavioral instructions, and the section on morality and carnal possessions.
Their beliefs are divided into 3 groups: monotheism, pathology and epistemology, jurisprudence and rules. They are divided into 2 general groups: worship, transactions, and ethics. Therefore, all narrations and verses can be placed in these 3 sections. Accordingly, Ramadan messages can be classified according to these three sections.
He added: “One of the messages of Ramadan is familiarity with the Qur’an as a divine word because Ramadan is the spring of the Qur’an and in this month the bed of familiarity with the Qur’an is ready.
The representative of the Supreme Leader at the Islamic Azad University in Tehran Province and the Central Tehran Branch said: “It should be noted that the problem of humanity today is being far from the concepts of the Qur’an and the current misguidance and problems of the world are rooted in being far from pure Qur’anic knowledge and guidance.” Ramadan is a good opportunity to fill this gap to some extent with this enlightening book and following its instructions.
Morteza Jalili said: The second message of Ramadan in relation to the theology of humanity with the Lord of the universe through prayers and supplications is specific to Ramadan. Provides. In life, we need a relationship with God, and by reciting the prayers and supplications of this relationship, it is possible to have prayers such as the dawn prayer, the Abu Hamza prayer, the opening prayer, etc .; Among these are the prayers that Anas is a kind of belief message
Jalili continued: “In the doctrinal discussion, the practice of servitude is very important, and man must use the teachings to know the purpose of his creation, which is to achieve the status of servitude and servitude, and to be saved from the bondage of Taghut, the air and soul of materialism and Satan.” We have the opportunity for a lifetime, but Ramadan is a very good opportunity for that.
He said: In the discussion of Imamology, the holy month of Ramadan contains the message of communication with the guardian and the Imam, which is the most obvious example of this is the Night of Destiny. As a result, communication with God’s guardian has a great effect on determining the best destinies
The representative of the Supreme Leader of the Islamic Azad University in Tehran Province continued: In the field of ethics, morality is divided into two parts: vices and virtues. One of the most important moral virtues is patience, which according to the teachings of the Qur’an is a condition for achieving all. It is human perfection.
Jalili explained: “In religious teachings, patience means that in moving towards a success, one must endure the problems of the path. Ramadan has a direct effect on raising human patience.”
He said: “Another important moral virtue is sincerity, which is a condition for accepting deeds. Reaching sincerity is more available in Ramadan and can lead his deeds to a direction that is always accompanied by sincerity and with the aim of approaching God.” Another message of the holy month of Ramadan is silence; Gossip is condemned in moral issues and many human slips are rooted in gossip, so silence and timely speaking are the commands of moral elders because silence leads to thinking and the thought of introduction is to reach higher spiritual positions. Ramadan by fasting Man is called to silence and as a result is encouraged to think and reach high positions
He pointed out: In Ramadan, by avoiding eating and drinking and invalidating fasting, the power of will also increases and the human will is strengthened to refrain from committing sins and mistakes, and in fact, fasting is a kind of exercise to strengthen determination and will.
Also in this meeting, Abdul Karim Khayami, a faculty member of Imam Sadegh (AS) University, said: “In critical sociology and cultural studies, we have a term called ‘naturalization’, which refers to the beliefs and behaviors that are taken for granted by a group or community.” And no one has any ambiguity or question about them and the issue is clear and accepted. One of the effects of Ramadan is that it disrupts some of these recurring statements that are constantly repeated in our lives and no one has any questions about them, in order to draw man’s attention to a higher position.
He added: “Things such as eating, drinking, sleeping and sexual gratification are among the daily and normal and frequent affairs that the holy month of Ramadan stops and moves these daily routines in order to interpret this daily routine, which is taken for granted by discourse scholars.” “Objectify” and draw attention to something higher.
A member of the faculty of the Faculty of Culture and Communication of Imam Sadegh University and Professor Hadi of the Faculty of Culture and Media stated: It changes the familiar appearance by changing the angle of view and other methods to something new with a new interpretation.
Referring to the concept of “Sepehr Syndrome” of the Tartu school, Khayyami added: “Ramadan clearly changes a set of coherent syndromes in society. Even the use of some shops, etc.), changes in the peak and landing hours of car traffic and traffic, changes in the working hours of offices and organizations, changes in the content and arrangement of tables, and even the introduction of phrases and expressions for the holy month in everyday speech and language. … is felt by the general public. These sweeping changes enable the 21st century Muslim man to move beyond what the postmodernists call the imaginary or acute world of reality. A world that, according to some cultural experts, has exposed man to the loss of signs.
He stated: The month of Ramadan, along with other acts of worship and rulings, is a set for “reorganizing” communications and relations. In sociology and communication, we have a set of specialized concepts to describe human groups. The characteristic of fasting worship (this worship itself is not the surrounding traditions), unlike worships such as congregational prayers or Friday prayers or Hajj and the like, is not the creation of gatherings with physical proximity such as the masses or crowds. During this month, each person performs a behavior, whether fasting or breaking the fast, at the same time, but in different places. Which to some extent brings to mind the concept of everyone (public), although it does not fit into that definition. This feature, along with other features mentioned, indicates a kind of “Ramadan communication rationality” that has the ability to create a new one-month social communication order in society.
A member of the faculty of the Strategic Discourse Analysis Institute pointed out: The month of Ramadan in non-Muslim countries, because of its special distinction, has the capacity to arouse respectful attention. At the same time, it not only does not cause any inconvenience to others, but even to some extent deprives it of some legitimate and legal uses. , Or the high volume of liking (liking) the Iftar image before or during the game of some Muslim basketball and football players are examples of these fortunes.
Dr. Abdolkarim Khayyami, noting that the largest variety of prayers is from the holy month of Ramadan, referring to the content of this prayer as well as the recommendations and mustahabs of this month such as feeding, considered “strengthening communication with others” during the holy month of Ramadan. In the end, due to lack of time, he enumerated some other theories and concepts in the field of social sciences, culture and communication, such as Victor Turner threshold, Habermas Public Field, Abraham Maslow’s Pyramid of Needs, etc.
Khayami also considered them to have the capacity to explain some of the communication and social aspects of the holy month of Ramadan and added: “In national events and rituals,” Nowruz “; And in our religious rituals, the holy month of Ramadan, they have such special communication systems as well as the capacities of differentiation and global success. Islamic-Iranian should be considered by the country’s policymakers with the approach of reviving the new Islamic civilization.
