One always hears the term «Islam is a way of life» but what does that really mean? Islam encompasses a code of systems that are put in place by the Creator through the Quran and Sunnah in order to give proper instructions and guidance to live life peacefully, righteously and productively.
In this course, students will delve into the foundations of the Islamic systems and their basic principles, historical origins, and contexts, as implemented by prophet Mohammad(peace be upon him) and his righteous followers throughout history. At the end of the course, students will have a solid understanding of how Islam systematically organizes and tackles different domains of human activities and relationships.
What are the immutable regulations and essential principles that govern morality and ethics in personal(family), social, economic, political, and legal (judicial) domains? In addition, this course will provide students with fundamental guidance and case studies that will help them utilize the Islamic systems in every affair of their lifestyle with full conviction and appreciation.
This course is offered as part of our Foundations Certificate Program
The Islamic Foundations Certificate provides a basic introduction to understanding Islam for all Muslims and provides a solid grounding for those serving as community leaders and educators, as well as for those who intend to explore Graduate-Level education in Islam. The Foundations program emphasizes personal reflection, spirituality and socio-ethical development, which is at the heart of all true Islamic learning.
Students seeking to complete the Foundations program on a part-time basis should allocate at least three semesters for its completion. The Foundations program will also be offered full-time as a summer intensive beginning in 2019, insha-Allah
