About this course
This course is for those who want to refresh and advance their knowledge in Islamic jurisprudence (fiqh) and develop confidence in responding to normal everyday queries. ‘Alimiyya students sometimes lose touch with fiqh after the fourth year of the course or feel that they had not put sufficient effort into it during their earlier study of it. In fact many graduates who become imams or teachers start experiencing the practical demands and questions of the wider society and feel the need to reconnect with their fiqh or even undertake a fresh study of it.
If this has been your feeling then the Advanced Islamic Jurisprudence Program is designed for you.
The course will cover a detailed fiqh manual, an usul al-fiqh text, provide a better understanding of the Hanafi school, its development, objectives and its evidences, and provide detailed coverage of the most important rulings of purity, salat, funerals, fasting, zakat, hajj, marriage, divorce, and business.
This course is not as intensive or demanding as the “Specialisation in Fiqh and Ifta’ Program,” and therefore advanced students of Islamic sacred knowledge may also apply. However, sufficient Arabic skills to understand the Arabic texts covered is required.
This course is open to brothers and sisters and is also offered online.
Subjects covered (subject to change)
- A study of a detailed fiqh manual such as Al-Lubab fi Sharh al-Kitab (a commentary of Quduri rich in furu’), especially focussing on the chapters generally not covered in all ‘alimiyya programs.
- A contemporary text in Usul al-Fiqh (Masarr al-Wusul ila ‘ilm al-Usul)
- An overview of the Hanafi school through madkhal works, such as those by Naqib and Salah Abu ’l-Hajj
- A comprehensive coverage of modern day issues and questions related to tahara, salat, fasting, zakat, hajj, funerals, marriage, divorce and business from contemporary fatwa works
- Evidences of the Hanafi school through I’la al-Sunan, Nasb al-Rayaand other works
