The Cognitive Basis of Interreligious Dialogue in Family Consolidation
In the history of the living religions of the world, the characteristics of the ideal family have been considered the most central elements of the dialogue of religions. This paper, using a descriptive-analytical method, has addressed the following: Despite the transformations of the holy books of Christians and Jews, the foundations and elements of an exalted religious life are still recommended by the prophets and have a special place in their practical approach. These holy books are committed to the foundations of fundamental structuralism recommended by the last holy book-i.e. Quran-, namely affection and mercy, and in this way have emphasized the upbringing of children. The basis of family consolidation can be found in a chaste life accompanied by moral commitment. In parallel with this, different religions, in the discussion of responsibility in all aspects of married life, emphasize the mutual respect of men and women and the preservation of their human status, and in this area they are fully committed to human principles. The cases mentioned in this paper are part of the ontological components of the family, which the Quran and other holy books, as well as all the living religions of the world, emphasize.
