MODULE DETAILS FOR DIPLOMA

 

Islamic Law (The Laws of Worship & Personal Law)

 

It has often been the norm to deliver the law as it must be obeyed. As a result students of this regime only sing the songs that they have been taught. But not on this Course.

 

For the first time students will be exposed to the thinking 'behind the veil': where each law stemmed from; was it the subject of academic and juristic debate; if so how; how the latter day Jurists developed the body of law; what flexibilities exist in developing law. Many of these questions may well be taboo in societies that follow the law with cultural values and loyalties. The student, in being taken behind the scenes, will appreciate the role of the Law Makers after the Prophet Alaihissalaam, as well as the pragmatic relevance of these rules in contemporary society.

 

Islamic History (Pre- and Post-Renaissance)

 

History in Islamic syllabuses is all about 'what happened'. Once again this Course departs from the norm. Not only is the student told what happened but more importantly why it happened and how that is relevant to us in our lives now, as opposed to the relevance to that particular time. When the student is taken into these territories one begins to appreciate the Sunnah and Seerah in a new light.

 

The word 'renaissance' often sends shivers down the spines of religious circles. The renaissance is nevertheless a huge turning point in the history of mans relationship to religion. By understanding history with and without the 'renaissance' the student is then directed to the great challenge of this time: using history to construct the future.

 

The Principles of Commentary of The Qur'an (Usool Tafseer)

 

Commentary of the Qur'an is a dynamic exercise. Unfortunately the modern mind is ill equipped to extract from the greatest composition of compressed information that the Universe has seen. If the Qur'an is the codified version of the 'divine database' - The Loh-e-Mahfooz, then the inquiring mind certainly needs the know-how, and needs to master the tools of the trade to embark upon this quest for unparalleled knowledge.

 

By empathising on the Science of Commentary the student is equipped to digest what has been said till date, and hopefully sow the seeds for the further analysis of revelation!

 

Mysticism/Sufism (Tasawwuf)

 

Never taught in the regime of an academic syllabus; what a tragedy! If only the masses knew that 'Islam without Tasawwuf is like a body without a soul' it would change their perception to the role of Islam in their lives.

 

Modern Tasawwuf is either left to the mercy of Orientalists who have every reason to pervert it's reality so that the masses see it as the practice of a cult as opposed to the spirit of Islam; or to most modern 'Sufis' who feel that the only way they will assume credibility is by deviating from the status quo of the Shariah and set up Tariqah as a means of escape. Of course you then have the academics who hail Tasawwuf as a thing of the past, a perfection that is unattainable by the Modern Man.

 

This Course goes through most of the main themes of Tasawwuf and analyses them from the viewpoint of the Qur'an and Sunnah and the lives of the Guided.

 

Sectarian Theology (Aqaa'id)

 

The Prophet (Sallalahu Alaihi Wasalam) said, "that my Ummah will be divided into 73 Sects. Seventy two of whom will be inhabitants of the hell fire" Most Muslims today are fairly chilled out when it comes to understating the fine lines that divide one sect from another. Then there are those who simply pay lip service to uphold loyalties they may be tied to. Those that do manage to investigate are marred in two ways; either they cannot independently assess the issues, or the material available is more than often not balanced enough to allow an objective mind to reach an impartial conclusion. These problems have participated to the rise in sectarian unrest.

 

This Course will facilitate a balanced presentation of the differences to allow the student to objectively assess the tenets of each standpoint, and hopefully, in being equipped in this manner, create an aura of stability based on awareness and understanding.

 

The Principles of Hadith

 

Compendiums of Hadith are like chemicals in a science laboratory. The Scientist has a duty not only to appreciate the nature and quality of each substance in whichever form it may exist, but also to investigate the interaction of one with the other to realise the impact and furnish a product with the appropriate checks and balances that serve the needs of Man in his environment.

 

Unfortunately the study of Hadith has, in recent times, been marginalized by the extraction of material to serve a subjective cause rather than with the wider spectrum in mind. Hadith literature has so much to offer and so little has been extracted till date. This Course attempts to raise the inquiring mind to a forum of understanding of the Science of Hadith so that justice can begin to be done.

 

Qur'anic Arabic

 

Non-Arabs have always shied away from dissecting the Arabic language; this has had implications in their ability to understanding the deeper meanings of words. Arabs generally have limited modern Arabic to a modus of efficient communication. The words of the Qur'an are not merely a channel of communication with mankind but also a hidden ocean of secrets that can only be found following analysis of the words employed by the Author (SWT). This course is more than a push in that direction.
