During the period of last two centuries, Westernization is one of the most effective phenomena which influenced Turkish State and Society in terms of politics and socio-cultural life. This modernization movement starting in the eighteenth century caused an intellectual quarrel up to now. Actually, Sebilurresad had lived a very wealthy intellectual life from the time of the second Constitutional period in 1908 up to 1965. Our well known periodical is considered as a laboratory of the Turkish intellectual life because of its publication period containing the Constitution, the Balkan Wars, the First World War and the Republic. During this long period of publication, Sebilurresad had kept going its Islamic point of view. In terms of westernization it emphasized not to imitate European society unconsciously, besides insisting on the protection of the national values. With this mind, it reacted strongly against all the movements conflicting national and Islamic principles. According to it, Islam had the capacity to surround individual.s personal and social life.
