The Encyclopedia of Courtesy is a drop of the vast ocean of genuine Islamic teachings and sciences and one of the entries of the Enc­y­clopedia of Mizan al-Hikmah, wh­ich is published independently. In the present encyclopedia, the con­cepts and terms that have a wide­spread cultural application in the Quran and Hadith are analyzed and semantically studied in an alphabetic manner, new order and by giving the examples of the applications. Some of the entries within the encyclopedia have a special, effective cultural appli­cation, that is, all of the Muslims or a special group of them deal with them round-the-clock. Hence, in order to improve and strengthen the public culture of the Muslim societies, it is nec­essary to provide the public with handbooks and guidebooks containing the teachings related to the said concepts and terms. On the basis of this approach, entries of this nature are prepared for the public in the form of independent books in different portable sizes so that they can be easily studied.

The Encyclopedia of Courtesy is the first in the series of enc­yclopedias whose main objective is to improve and stren­gthen behavioral cultural values. The encyclopedia elaborates such top­ics as: courtesy, kinds and degrees of courtesy, role of cou­rtesy in life, bases of courtesy, teachers of courtesy, method and impediments of teaching courtesy from the viewpoint of the Quran and Hadith.
