Solution Seeking For Today's Problems and Said Nursi Model Person, Belief, Ethics, Youth, Woman and Family
One of the most depressive periods of humanity is expressed by many thinkers. Social facts that rapidly change with technology had societys political, economic and social structures gain new appearances, starting from human and everyday life. This raid change no doubt added many values to human life, but today what is discussed today is those things that this change took from the human.
Although dominant ideologies of 19th century, which reflected on 20th century as well, and social and authoritarian views that affect the life from all dimensions began losing their effect upon the beginning of 21st century, their effects are still visible. Millions of people lost their lives due to two world wars in the past century, but humankind under the effects of isms got away from the intention of existence, and confronted with the danger of losing eternal life. In this century while humans questionings concerning its existence form the humankinds biggest inner conflicts, searches to ensure inner peace and make human existence meaningful became prominent. Association of the latest economic crisis with humans ambition and greed, and evaluations concerning economic crisis from human essence are results of these searches. When it is considered that today humankind struggles against many problems and humankind leans to new searches, it can easily be seen how meaningful Bediüzzamans solutions for today are.
Bediüzzaman reminds human, who is disturbed with positivisms excessive materialism, the purpose of creation, makes human meet with Gods infinite mercy, compassion and grace, keeps creator-creature relation alive and gives ideas to make these visible in every facets of life. Against some diseases as self-seekingness, repressing the weak, violation of law that became common spread due to disbelief and that became the worlds problem today, Bediüzzaman suggests believing people and offers a roadmap, rather than a Jacobinist approach. Based on the principles of right, law, justice, virtue, brotherhood and solidarity that ensure societies happiness against a civilization that is based on interest, dissolute, conflict and racism which lead to personal and social ethical degeneration causing peoples and societys disruption, Koran explains principles of civilization.
Based on these, we think that problems that humankind struggles with in many areas can be solved with the light of Bediüzzamans ideas. In this context, 5th National Risale-i Nur Congress on Solution Seeking for Todays Problems and Said Nursi Model held in Istanbul between March 20-21 2010 is important, and can offer solutions to humans current problems. By considering these, we allocated this issue to some of the papers from this congress. This effort, aiming at thinking and searching Bediüzzaman Said Nursis views and his solutions for problems smashing humankind once again, will also help us to understand the situation of the society with the civilization understanding and lifestyle offered by Koran.
We present you this journal with the hope that these problems all through world and that caused crises in our country will lead to truths causing humans happiness and lead to a world based on grace, ethics and justice, as promised by Bediüzzaman. In our next issue we hope to present you papers and final declaration from 5th National Risale-i Nur Congress workshop titled Politics, Democracy, Human Rights, Kurdish Issue and World Peace.
