‘Abdul Reza Zarrabi


 There are several concepts in “Al-Mizan”, which can be closely related to the foundations, principles, methods and stages of education. The present paper seeks to infer from Al-Mizan the concepts which are related to the foundations of education, especially those which are known as the ontological foundations of education and particularly called “education-giving traditions”. Generally speaking, divine traditions can be divided into two groups: worldly traditions and other-worldly traditions. Other-worldly traditions are those which are related to the life in the other world and reward and punishment. Worldly traditions are those which deal with man’s social behaviors and their outcomes in this world. The term “education-giving traditions”, here is concerned with the second group, that is, with those traditions which are related to man’s social behaviors and their outcomes in this world. Among the main education-giving traditions are the tradition of affliction and trail, the tradition of sending messengers, the tradition of guidance, the tradition of drawing a person on little by little, the tradition of respiting and delaying, tradition of decisive victory of truth against falsehood which (the Most High God has mentioned in the Holy Qur'an in different occasions with the aim of educating mankind and pointing out the way of achieving felicity and perfection).

The Status of Warning and Admonition in Religious Education in the View of Allameh Tabatabaii in Al Mizan Commentary

Sayeed Hassan Bathaii Golpaygani


Warning and admonition are among the methods which are used in religious education. Warning means enjoining good benevolently and leniently. Among its synonyms are advice and warning which mean giving advice in a friendly way in the hope of encouraging reform and extending education. The Qur'an refers to fine admonition as one of the methods of religious education relating to doctrinal issues, ethical issues, and acts and etiquette of worship. Resting on the verses of Quran, Allameh Tabatabaii believes that, if the preacher and the preached one share scientific, ethical and doctrinal conditions and if the purpose of the sermon is inviting the audience to God, it will contribute to the awakening of hearts, and refinement of human souls. The Qur'an's reference to favours and historical events is intended to prevent people from being remiss and to extend religious education. This research, relying on the views shown by Allameh Tabatabaii in Al Mizan Commentary, investigates and evaluates the commentary and analysis of the verses of admonitions and the words related to them.


Key words: admonition, advice, warning, education, Al Mizan Commentary, Allameh Tabatabaii.
