Abstract

Despite the importance of the subject of a good life in all cultures, all religions, and throughout all times, there are few studies that have been interested in it through the chapters and verses of the Holy Qur’an. Accordingly, this study was in the Surah Al-Mu’minūn and Surah An-Nūr, which referred to a great extent to the educational indications of a good life in the various areas of life, such as the faith (Aqidah), the legislative (Sharia), and the moral (Akhlaq). Consequently, this study aims to empirically verify the role and effect of these indications in achieving the good life through a field study on Yemeni postgraduate students in Malaysia. The most important findings  of this study are:  uncovering a number of educational indications for each of the three areas, educational indications in each area have a significant and positive impact on achieving a good life, and the degree of the level of influence of these educational indications in achieving the good life varies (The educational indications of the Sharia, Aqidah, and Akhlaq aspects, respectively, have the most impact on achieving the a good life). In short, this study provides new and empirical insight on the effect of educational indications, in the Holy Quran, on achieving a good life.

ملخص البحث

على الرغم من أهمية موضوع الحياة الطيبة في كل الثقافات وفي جميع الأديان وعبر كل الأزمنة؛ فإن الدراسات التي اهتمت به من خلال سور وآيات القرآن الكريم قليلة. وعليه كانت هذه الدراسة في سورتي المؤمنون والنور اللتين أشارتا كثيرا إلى الدلالات التربوية للحياة الطيبة في مجالات الحياة المتعددة كالعقدي والتشريعي والأخلاقي. وبالتالي تهدف هذه الدراسة إلى التحقق تجريبيا من دور وتأثير هذه الدلالات في تحقيق الحياة الطيبة من خلال دراسة ميدانية على طلبة الدراسات العليا اليمنيين في دولة ماليزيا. استخدمت الدراسة المنهج التحليلي والمنهج الوصفي لتحقيق أهداف هذه الدراسة. وقد خلصت الدراسة إلى جملة من النتائج أهمها: استنباط عدد من الدلالات التربوية لكل مجال من المجالات الثلاثة، كما تم التوصل إلى أن للدلالات التربوية في الجانب العقدي والجانب التشريعي والجانب الأخلاقي لها أثر كبير وايجابي في تحقيق الحياة الطيبة، وأن درجة مستوى تأثير هذه الدلالات التربوية في تحقيق الحياة الطيبة متفاوت، حيث أوضحت النتائج إلى أن الدلالات التربوية في الجانب التشريعي لديها أكبر درجة علاقة مع الحياة الطيبة، متبوعا بالدلالات التربوية في الجانب العقدي، ثم الدلالات التربوية في الجانب الأخلاقي. إن نتائج هذه الدراسة تقدم لنا نظرة تجريبية جديدة حول تأثير الدلالات التربوية في القران الكريم في تحقيق الحياة الطيبة.
