Introduction to Usulul Fiqh

In an age where Muslims and non-Muslims riddle Shari’ah law to only the hudood (capital punishment) and the niqaab (the veil), it is critical for us to understand how Islamic Jurisprudence really works. This science is referred to as 'Usul al-fiqh' - the study of the origins, sources, and principles upon which Islamic jurisprudence (Fiqh) is based. In an extended sense, it includes the study of the philosophical rationale of the law and the procedures by which the law applicable to particular cases is derived from the sources. This course is designed to give students an insight into the methods, tools and sources used to pass divine legislation. Designed for complete beginners, students will take a journey into the work of the founder of Usul al-fiqh.
