Islamic Scholarship Course
The Islamic studies course is intended primarily for young adults, designed to be available to a range of students from different walks of life. Some have previous experience of Islamic courses; whilst for others, it is their first exposure to formal Islamic studies.
The program is based on the traditional curriculum of the ‘Alimah course’, and provides a firm and broad basis in all of the main disciplines of classical Islamic Dars-E-Nizami course:Arabic language and its various sciences, Commentary of the entire Qur’an, Hadith, Islamic Law (Fiqh), Principles of Legal Methodology (Usul al-Fiqh), Beliefs (Aqeedah), Seerah, Shamail, Contemporary Issues, and Islamic Spirituality.
Though the program itself is for English-speaking students, students will be moved slowly to Arabic reading fluency so that they can study the different disciplines in the language of the scholars. This will typically involve covering various classical Arabic manuals in each Islamic discipline, thereby giving students a taste of the rich academic tradition.*Upon successful completion of the Islamic Scholarship Course, students will qualify to take an advanced course to be offered in the future, which will mark the completion of the Alimah Degree.
