The Islamic-Iranian Culture and the Modern Human Rights’ Paradigm: Passivity or Attraction?

Abstract

 

One of the most essential studies in the modern world is identifying the true proportion among human rights, religion, and the local culture. Analyzing the extent to which Islam as a religion has paid attention to the issue of human natural rights is capable of revealing the mentality of those modern scholars who explain the challenge between religion and human rights from a different perspective. The researcher believes that the human rights issues which are taken into consideration under the world view and culture of the Moslem people in the Islamic countries are not following the customs and norms of the western people who are the producers of a special type of norm for human rights. Human rights, from the viewpoint of sensible Moslems, not only benefits from the pure source of the Islamic thought as the terminator of the Abrahamic religions but also is influenced by the national accepted culture and customs. The current study is conducted using a library research while its collected data is based on a survey done on a sample of Iranian youth.
