Allah the wise states “So ask the followers of the Reminder [and religious scholars] if you do not know – Sura Nahl (The Bee) Ayah 43.
And We did not send before you any but men to whom We sent revelation, so ask the followers of the reminder if you do not know – Sura Anbiya (The Prophets) Ayah 7.
The most prominent element of mans life is his deliberation, reflection and knowledge. A man taking the journey towards his own intellectual perfection and continued aspiration is always searching and encountering new questions during his search.
One, who does not propound question, does not propound knowledge.
The scope for Progressive questions on religious thought is extremely vast. The Porch of Wisdom Cultural Institute was established with the goal of resolving some of the importunate and unconvincing cultural, educational, and research-oriented needs in the area of religious thought, and never has it let the lack of facilities become an obstacle for it activities, although it has reduced speed and propaganda.
This is why the computer administrative department of this institute, whose area of expertise is information technology development, initiated their task by designing a website and answering questions on religion.
The first phase began with responding to theological and philosophical questions sent to The Porch of Wisdom Cultural Institute via the website www.hadavi.info by the Tebyan website [www.Tebyan.net].
In addition to the many efforts by various other organizations, not only is there still a necessity for development in the field of answering religious questions and misgivings, but with the widespread advancements in media technology and communication, the need for a center which solely focuses on answering [religious] questions and issues has increased. Moreover the answers should be in such a way that they are recognized as answers and viewpoints of Islam.
Therefore, the computer administrative department began its second phase of activity in the year of the Great Prophet (Peace be upon him and his progeny), by launching the IslamQuest website in three languages (Farsi, English and Arabic) at the following web address: www.IslamQuest.net which officially began its activity on the seventeenth of Rabi Al-Awal 1427 (Hijri –Lunar Calendar) equivalent with 1385/ 1/27 (Hijri –Solar Calendar) simultaneous with the prosperous birthday of the dear Prophet of Islam.
The Method of Answering Questions
The questions and issues that are answered by the researchers are from the compilation of questions submitted to the IslamQuest website or are questions which hold a special priority within or outside of the country. This priority is specified by the Farsi, Arabic and English department administrators and experts, and then finalized and confirmed by the respected heads of the research department, computer administrative department, and the respected president of the Porch of Wisdom Cultural Institute
The answers to the questions are dispatched upon taking into consideration the information presented by the inquirers and the persons being addressed. After obtaining the finalized answer and the confirmation of the department heads for the related question, it is then put in the site Question and Answer Archive.
There is a range of methods for answering questions:
For the questions submitted on the website, if the initial question of the user includes more than one question then (if necessary) after separating it into multiple questions, the answer is prepared and sent. And if it is such that the inquirers question has a single topic, then the steps will be taken to answer that exact same question. On the other hand depending on the case the answer to the question may be sent as a brief and detailed answer or as a single answer for the inquirer’s use, and his or her opinions about the answer will be utilized.
The institutes Quest of answering questions has always been targeted at the researcher’s answers having comprehensive and creditable information as much as possible, so that it can be recognized as the answer and viewpoint of Islam.
