FOUNDATIONS OF ISLAMIC JURISPRUDENCE is a 16-CD set that traces the development and compilation of sacred law [fiqh] and explores the validity of following qualified scholarship. Recorded at the Darul Uloom al-Islamiya in Sacramento, California, this series of Urdu lectures reviews the foundations of Islamic knowledge and reaffirms the legacy of our pious elders in an attempt to renew the tradition of scholarship in the present day and age.

A bound copy of the course notes in urdu is also available as a companion to the audio lectures.

ABOUT THE COURSE

Since the time of the Prophet (sallallahu ‘alayhi wa sallam), Muslims have taken knowledge from their elders, each generation learning from the previous one. The beloved messenger (sallallahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) once said, “Blessings are to be found in your elders.” This program reviewed the foundations of Islamic knowledge and discussed the methodologies our pious scholars used in arriving at positions of sacred law. Topics covered included: the compilation of Hadith, Hadith methodology, the development and compilation of sacred law [fiqh] and the validity of following qualified scholarship. Each session was accompanied by a visual presentation and notes were handed out at the end of every lecture. This was an incredible opportunity to return to our roots and learn to take our din from our pious elders.

This course was specially designed for Ulama (religious scholars) and individuals who are formally pursuing a study of traditional Islamic sciences under qualified scholars.
