Optimal Models of Education and Training based on the Content Analysis of the Hadiths of Shiite Imams

Muhammad Etratdoost, Mohsen Samadanian


Among the most important duties of the pure Imams are to spread Islamic teachings, to prepare the ground to deepen such education, and to educate the Islamic society so as to reach perfection and salvation. Indeed, different methods have been used to such an end, one which is to teach praying and its propagation at different occasions among the members of the Islamic society in order to promote Islamic Lifestyle. In this article, the authors have studied methodologically and analytically the prepositions in Imam Reza (AS) (eighth Imam of Shī'a) prayers. The aim was to find the role and applications of such an instinctual and religious tool in educating members of society and to come up with a general model which explains, from Imam Reza (AS)’s viewpoint, the training methods to lead people and Islamic society, i.e. Islamic Lifestyle fulfillment. For this end, using content analysis method, each prayer’s speech framework and their aspects were first classified based on topic. Then they were analyzed to reach the governing system of the prayers language, to discover the training methods and the ways for their localization in the society’s educational system, and to find the best methods to propagate Islamic lifestyle.
