The Journal Orientation
Based on the trend of Al-Daleel Foundation for Doctrinal Studies and Research, and in the belief that the true Islamic faith is the basis for man’s education, perfection and the building of human civilization; therefore, the absence of a true ideological awareness or having an incomplete image about the basics of this faith will certainly lead to falling into ideological and behavioral deviation and slipping into the abyss extremism and non-moderation. Hence, one would either fall into dereliction, which leads to irreligiousness and atheism, or into excessiveness, which takes one to the trap of intellectual terrorism and shallowness, and this would terribly disfigure the pure image of Islam, as is happening today by some groups that claim to follow the true Islamic faith.
Because of the little number of journals concerned with doctrines and theology, especially those addressing the different levels and classes of people in the intellectual field, beside the fact that many of these publications have failed to meet modern scientific standards, in addition to their lack of a positive impact on the addressees. Therefore, the al-Daleel Foundation has decided to publish a specialized journal on intellectual, doctrinal studies; in order to contribute to filling the gap in this field.
So, due to the path the Foundation has been following, the al-Daleel Journal should have been up to the intellectual challenges, and should be an exemplar to seriously increase the level of doctrinal awareness among all classes of readers; in order to be able, with wider positive influence, to propagate true doctrinal awareness without a bit of extremism or shallowness. Moreover, we try the best, through this journal, to develop intellectual dialog in a scientific, objective and calm atmosphere
In pursuit of its desired goal, the journal is committed to offering dynamic topics that could meet the needs of the contemporary intellectual arena and discuss the problematic questions raised therein, which constitute serious concerns in society. All of this is presented through a scientific research method by specialized, full-qualified staff.
