Even in all studies of Communication Sciences, there is no study work that has conducted a thorough analysis of this religious periodical. Hence,this scientific paper seeks to fill this gap by analyzing its objective.This contemporary scientific topic remains closely linked to the current developments of the Albanian nation and Albanian culture, which is another additional reason for selecting this topic.The main goalis the objektive recognition of the role played by the pressand the religious periodical in terms of the rigat Islamic, Catholic, cultural, educational, social and nacional formation of Kosovo Albanians and beyond.
