Fiqh – Jurisprudence
Fiqh (Islamic Jurisprudence) is the study of Islamic law that informs the life of a Muslim. From the integrals of prayer to the proper conduct of a financial transaction, Fiqh provides insight into living a balanced life. The study of Fiqh breaks down the obligatory, recommended, permissible, non-recommended, and prohibitions within the bounds of Islam. Within this framework of understanding Fiqh, three of the main schools of thought (madhahib) are taught at Madina Institute by scholars of each area of study: Hanafi Fiqh, Shafi Fiqh, and Maliki Fiqh. The study of Fiqh equips students with the practical knowledge and skills needed to practice the integrals of faith.
