About the Journal

Research Journal Īqān has been launched by the Department of Islamic Studies, Riphah International University, Faisalabad Campus, since June 2018. The journal aims to provide a platform for academic fraternity in Islamic and religious studies around the world for the publication of their scholarly research.  It is devoted primarily to the publication of research in diverse fields of Islamic learning, literature, culture, and current issues in Islamic discourse and the history of the Muslim world.

Research articles on Islam more broadly on religion, based on sources from diverse cultural backgrounds will also be considered for publication in instances where the editors find the material especially relevant to the objectives of the journal.

Aims and objectives of Īqān include:

-to encourage advanced scholarly research on contemporary issues of the modern era, in addition to the traditional approach to various branches of Islamic learning on Islam, which aims at a legitimate Islamic verdict on complex social, individual, and scientific issues.

-to help academic researchers get their writings published in all domains of religious studies in general and Islamic studies in particular.

-to deliver analytical reviews on the latest books and other academic materials.

-to publish articles after the blind peer review process, which is carried out by leading specialists in Islamic & religious studies in order to enhance the Islamic scientific research which addresses the issues faced by our societies.

-to develop diversity, tolerance, and fruitful scholarly discussions among researchers without any ethnic, national, or religious discrimination. So Īqān welcomes scholars from around the world to submit their scholarly contributions to our platform.
