The Faculty of Graduate Studies awarded the researcher Mahmoud Khateeb a Master’s Degree in Usoul Al-Din in response to his thesis entitled “Repentance in Holy Quran :An Objective Study”.
Repentance is one of the highly important topics, which the Holy Koran addresses. This importance is attributed to the people’s constant and urgent need to learn more about their religion and keep closer and closer to Allah (the glorified and exalted). That is, since the people’s sins and mistakes are innumerable and the nature of the human’s self is usually sinful, the need to switch from the road of aberrance and corruption to the road of faith and belief is undoubtedly urgent.Therefore, this study comes to address the issue of repentance in the Holy Koran.
This study mainly consists of five chapters in addition to anintroduction.
The first chapter explains the concept of repentance in the Holy Koran and its types in terms of linguistics, connotation and denotations
The second chapter illustrates the degrees of repentance, types of the repentant, the origin of repentance and the repentance of the devout and God-fearing people.
The third chapter highlights the repentance of some Prophets whose repentance is mentioned in the Holy Koran.
The fourth chapter talks about some signs of the repentant as shown in the Holy Koran and the ethics we learn from these signs.
The fifth chapter summarizes the fruits and benefits of repentance.
The committee consisted of: Dr. Khader Swandak as a main supervisor and Chairman, Dr. Helmi Abdel Hadi as an external examiner and Dr. Muhsen Khaldi as an internal examiner.
At the end of the session, the committee approved the success of the researcher and recommended him a Master’s degree.
