Understanding the Qur'an
The Qur’an remains the fundamental basis of the Shari’ah in all its paradigms. It is the source to all branches of the Shari’ah and is the determining factor in all aspects of our religion, whether it is social, juridical or economical. Every branch of Shari'ah has its own unique classification and source code and likewise, Tafsir is the source code of the Qur’an.
This module will present you with an opportunity to form a connection with the Holy Book of Allah, the Majestic Qur’an. We will undertake a brief study of the commentaries of the short chapters of the 30th part, summarized from classical Tafsir works. This will be followed by the study of the core chapters which the Holy Prophet (peace be upon him) encouraged the believers to recite on a daily and weekly basis. And finally, we will look at the themes of all 114 surahs in-order to give us a holistic understanding of the Majestic Qur’an.
Understanding the Seerah
In this module, we will progress along dual trajectories: one trajectory will centre on the Seerah of the Holy Prophet (peace be upon him), summarized from the Seerah of Imam Ibn Hisham [ra]. The second trajectory will take us to the study of the Shama’il, which is the name given to the science in which one studies the physical description of the Holy Prophet
(peace be upon him).
The study of the Seerah provides the student with a chronological overview of the most important events from the celebrated life of the Final Prophet of God sent to mankind. This includes looking at the many events that unfolded during the blessed 63 years of the Prophet’s (peace be upon him) life and the lessons learnt from them that we may take and implement in our lives.
Understanding the Shama’il
The aim of studying the Shama'il is not just mere historical knowledge. We hope to delve deeper to help us draw closer to the Prophet and attain spiritual well-being through reverance and remembrance of his Prophetic qualities.
The module will introduce the most salient points which will help to provide you with an insight into the Prophetic life and description, while witnessing how every moment of his life was lived to please Allah Ta’ala. We will study the Prophet’s (peace be upon him) blessed appearance, character, day-to-day activities and worship. You will learn to apply new Sunnas in numerous areas of your life, making this module ideal for all Muslims who yearn for a stronger connection with him (peace be upon him).
The study of the Shama’il provides the student with an insight into the prophetic life and his description. This includes chapters on his physical appearance, the food he ate, his devotion to worship, his humility, his supplications and his manner of speaking amongst many
