We hope that students will be able to partake in the practice and propagation of Islam in the UK via interpersonal and digital dawah. We aim to help students become confident in their practice of Islam and their ability to navigate Islamic texts, methodologies and contemporary issues.
Building upon the suwar covered in ILM Essentials 1, we now further our journey through the Qur’an by covering the central verses within each surah from Surah Yunus to Surah al-Nas.
Resuming from Surah Yunus to Surah al-Hajj – students will cover selected groups of verses that form the key message of each Surah.
Resuming from Surat al-Mu’minun to Surat al-Qamar – students will cover selected groups of verses that form the key message of each Surah.
Resuming from Surah al-Rahman to Surah al-Nas – students will cover selected groups of verses that form the key message of each Surah.
Fiqh al-Mu’amalat consists of the major chapters of Islamic ethics and morality covering Islamic laws pertaining to buying and selling, forming contracts and inheritance amongst other subjects. The EIIS endeavours to offer students a practical and balanced approach to dealing with these sometimes challenging topics by using recognised and authoritative texts and contemporary research papers to stimulate student discussions and learning.
It is our primary objective that students understand which acts may invalidate or delegitimise their dealings with others and the morality and ethics behind the Islamic injunctions. While personal and social agreements appear to be individual matters that concern one’s life choices they form the majority of one’s actions and therefore constitute the largest portion of one’s good or bad deeds. It is therefore essential that every Muslim learns how to maximise their reward in the fulfilment of their life choices.
Tarbiyah covers Adab, Sunan and Dawah.
Adab: Learning the personal characteristics and qualities emphasized in the Qur’an and by the Prophet Muhammad (Alayhi Salam). Students will learn how to improve their manner and learn to embody Islamic etiquettes.
Sunan: We will cover the various norms of the Prophet (Alayhi Salam) that form the daily rituals and habits of a Muslim.
Dawah: Through analysing the manifestos of classical and contemporary Muslim scholars students will develop an informed approach to propagating Islam in their given context through learning how to best utilise modern technology and digital media.
In this module students will cover Usul al-Fiqh, Ulum ul-Hadith and Ulum al-Qur’an.
Usul al-Fiqh: We will cover the various principles through which laws are determined to be part of the practice of Islam. Students will also study the maxims (Qawa’id) that form a consistent interpretive tool to realise the Islamic law in the absence of an explicit text.
Ulum al-Hadith: The methodology through which a Hadith can be determined to be authentic or not. Students will also be introduced to the method of interpreting Hadith and combining between seemingly contradictory or implausible texts.
Ulum al-Qur’an: The formation, cataloguing, drawing and interpretation of the Qur’an. Students will overview the salient details of the language, style, miraculous and unique aspects of the Qur’an.
