Islamic Law (Fiqh)

Module Overview

Allah Most High says, “I have not created jinn-kind nor mankind for any purpose other than to worship Me.” (Qur’an, 51:56). This module provides comprehensive and knowledge-based answers to all of the questions students are likely to face in their worship of Allah, the Most High, all in light of a formal textbook on Hanafi and Shafi law that have been used for centuries. This subject covers the necessary aspects of the Islamic law of personal and inter-personal worship from the five pillars of Islam. Students will study ritual purification (aharah), the daily prescribed prayers (salah), purifying alms (zakah), fasting during the month of Ramadan (sawm), and the major pilgrimage (hajj).
