Fundamentals of Islamic Jurisprudence (USULUL FIQH)
- Course overview:
The fundamentals of the Islamic Jurisprudence deals with the derivation of rulings relating to all matters of worship [‘ibadah], dealings [mu’amalat] or any type of activities conducted in this life from the Qur’an and the Sunnah. In order to do this accurately, a student must strictly adhere to certain principles and regulations: a science termed Usul al-Fiqh (the fundamentals of Islamic Jurisprudence). We have designed our course to incorporate the study of four main branches of Usul al-Fiqh: Islamic sources (of evidence), Rulings ahkam and their meanings, principles of deducing ahkam, and conditions of ijtihad.
