Human beings, who have been made the caliph on earth thanks to the mind bestowed to him to be tested by Allah, were created with the potential to commit both mischief and evil. In this respect, human beings are in need of guidance from the Creator. The purpose of the religion revealed by Allah is to show mankind and their society the true path that they should follow and ensure their happiness in both the material world and the afterlife. Therefore, mankind does not exist for the sake of religion, but the opposite. According to the Quran, which is the primary source of Islam, all the prophets sent to humanity throughout history were sent on Islam for this purpose. Prophet Muhammad is the last of the prophets sent by Allah on Islam. Islam, with its principles and decrees in the fields of faith, worship, morality and law, regulates human and social life by encompassing all its dimensions. Although the principles and provisions in the Quran, which has been revealed in the seventh century of the Gregorian Calendar, the society that is subject to those decrees is subject to social change due to its dynamic structure. The transition of religion to life by becoming livable and its encompassing of the society that it addresses is only possible if it is able to direct social change via the lifelike dialogue established with it. At this point, the relationship between what is stable and what changes should be correctly understood, as well as the axis that it operates upon. The purpose of this article is to eliminate the confusions in this regard by considering the relationship between social change and the provisions of Islam. In the preparation of the article, the studies and works written in regard to this subject were benefitted from. The studies and works utilized in the form of articles and books were shown in the bibliography.
