Course Description

Having previously covered the core fundamentals of Islam we now cover the branches of the four primary sources in Usul al-Din, Aqeedah, Tazkiyyah, Fiqh al-Mu’amalat. Tafsir and Dawah.

Course Objectives

Our focus in level 2 is to enable students to formalise their understanding and practice of Islam by developing themselves to critique, produce and propagate the knowledge, faith and practice of Islam to others. To achieve this the course has been designed to elaborate upon often neglected subjects within Islam.

We aim to help students become confident in their practice of Islam and their ability to navigate Islamic texts, methodologies and contemporary issues.

Assessment

Students on the Ilm Essentials course are formally assessed twice a year during the biannual assessment weeks. Exams will be in written format, and students may speak to class teachers for information on specific details regarding the exam format for each subject.

As the course is condensed, students are recommended to revise their class notes on a weekly basis. Students may additionally be given tasks or projects by respective teachers to be carried out throughout the year. Outside of class, students are recommended to spend a minimum of 2-3 hours of study time per week. Students are given a recommended reading list that has been tailored to their program of study.

 

“Attending the Ilm Essentials classes has given me the much needed focus and structure I have been seeking in Islamic Studies. It’s comprehensive, covering a range of topics from Seerah, Tafsir, Tazkiya and Fiqh. The teachers are engaging, responsive and encourage discussion. You get a sense of belonging and familiarity with fellow students on a weekly basis and I very much look forward to my Saturday mornings and time spent with EIIS”-

  • Fiqh al-Mu’amalat: Trade, Marriage & Inheritance 0

    Fiqh al-Mu’amalat consists of the major chapters of Islamic ethics and morality covering Islamic laws pertaining to buying and selling, forming contracts and inheritance amongst other subjects. The EIIS endeavours to offer students a practical and balanced approach to dealing with these sometimes challenging topics by using recognised and authoritative texts and contemporary research papers to stimulate student discussions and learning. It is our primary objective that students understand which acts may invalidate or delegitimise their dealings with others and the morality and ethics behind the Islamic injunctions. While personal and social agreements appear to be individual matters that concern one’s life choices they form the majority of one’s actions and therefore constitute the largest portion of one’s good or bad deeds. It is therefore essential that every Muslim learns how to maximise their reward in the fulfilment of their life choices.
