There is a lot to learn in Islam. In our day to day lives, many questions and issues might arise when trying to perform our Islamic duties. It’s important to know the answers to these issues, and this course covers most of them.
Priority is given to the ruling of a specific issue and the underlying reason. The former allows you to worship Allah correctly while the latter helps you gain a deeper sense of meaning behind the action. This course focuses on the most essential elements to avoid distractions for the learners.
There are many rulings in Islamic law that were once relevant but no longer pertain to current times. This course only covers that which is practical for today’s Muslims by removing irrelevant content and adding new questions that have arisen in the current climate.
Islam is not just a dry set of rules consisting only of commands and prohibitions. Islamic law tends to focus only on the legalistic aspects of actions and their consequences. This course ties in the spiritual element of actions so that they become meaningful as opposed to empty physical actions.
