FiQh Diploma Syllabus
This course is designed to turn a person vaguely familiar with FiQh and Islaamic Law into a fully competent “MutafaQQeeh” or Muslim-Mind. It is the Islaamic Paralegal Course.
Step One: Think[in] FiQh
This is an introduction to Islaamic thought and the goals of the Sharee’ah. It answers one critical question: How does a Muslim think, and why? This question can also be phrased as, What does a Muslim take into consideration when making a decision?
Step Two: First Grade FiQh
This is a review of everything we should have learned [in FiQh] before you became an adult.
Step Three: Outlining FiQh
This is as its name suggests, an outline of every subject in Islaamic Law. But it is not a blanket outline, it is a summary and visual graph designed to help us remember everything we are learning.
Step Four: FiQh Classics
The classics unite the international Muslim world. Because studying a classical Fiqh Text gives us shared memory and a shared memory leads to shared expectations. While going through these classics our students begin to realize that they have achieved competency in FiQh. Their confidence increases as we explain the modern-day application of each concept and law. The classical texts are “Ar-Risaalah” from the Maaliki Madh-hab, and “Mukhtasar abi Shuja’ ” from the Shaafi’Ee Madh-hab. These two particular classics were chosen due to their global acceptance. In fact, these two classics are so respected that the average adult Muslim around the world is expected to be intimately familiar with either one or the other. this, walHamdu Lillaah
