Abstract The “Islamic management” book contains articles of many recognized Islamic scholars. It is the first book that approaches Islamic management not so much from practical, but rather from a theoretical point of view.

The book consists of two parts: the first part contains an analysis of Islamic management and its functioning; the second part reveals to the readers the major approaches towards the understanding of its nature. In order to ensure more profound understanding, the authors cite numerous…
Abstract Religious education in schools is one of the forms of the religion's presence in a civic society. Although religious education of students in one country is inimitable due to constitutional, legal, cultural, ethnic, social and political circumstances, referring to this experience is quite useful.

Therefore, following the German example, Russia should develop a complex long-term strategy to prevent religious radicalisation of Muslim youth through religious education in schools.…

Abstract Not many states could counter the attacks of the Roman empire and win victories the way Persia did. Ancient towns, aqueducts and irrigation facilities of Persia boggle minds even in our days. “Shahnameh”, an epic poem written by the great Ferdowsi, is a source of many legends, including the one that mentions a king who thought its every line was worth gold. The UNESCO heritage list includes bridges and palaces built at the order of the shah Abbas the Great of Persia, who is often called the Iranian Peter the Great.
