Cultural relativity means that all of the cultures are valuable and also refers to the belief based on which the cultures are incomparable, since the conditions in which the cultures are formed are different. Therefore, the culture of no nation is comparable with the culture of other nations. The antithesis of cultural relativity is ethnicity which believes in the superiority of its own culture over the other cultures. The subject of this paper is theoretical clarification and validity testing of cultural relativity in view of the principles of the Islam true religion.
The main question of this research is that whether a criterion and standard can be considered for the cultures in terms of the truth and correctness or falsity and incorrectness and also all of the cultures enjoy the same level of valuation or not.
Considering the research topic in this study, the research method is followed in a library-based manner and the topic of discussion is examined by the descriptive and analytical method. while clarifying the beliefs of relativists is considered absolute relativism nor absolute ethnicity, but it is right-orientation in Qur'an's view and so absoluteness governs in some affairs and relativity in some others.
