Tajweed(Courses(
Faculty(of(Qur’anic(sciences
The word Tajweed linguistically means 'proficiency' or 'doing something
well'. It comes from the same root letters as the word 'Jayyid' in Arabic
(meaning 'good'): Jeem, Waw and Daal. When applied to the Qur'an, it
means giving every letter of the Qur'an its rights and dues of
characteristics when we recite the Qur'an and observing the rules that
apply to those letters in different situations. We give the letters their
rights by observing the essential characteristics of each letter that never
leave it. And we give them their dues by observing the characteristics of
each letter that are present in them some of the time and not present at
other times.
The Qur'an was revealed with Tajweed rules applied to it. In other
words, when the angel Jibreel (AS) recited the words of Allah to the Prophet Muhammad (SAW) he recited them in a certain way
and he showed the Prophet (SAW) the ways in which it was permissible to recite the Qur'an. So it is upon us to observe those rules
so that we recite it in the way it was revealed. At the time of the Prophet (SAW) there was no need for people to study Tajweed
because they talked with what is now known as Tajweed so it was natural for them. When the Arabs started mixing with the non-
Arabs as Islam spread, mistakes in Qur'an recitation started appearing, so the scholars had to record the rules. Now, because the
everyday Arabic that Arabs speak has changed so much from the Classical Arabic with which the Qur'an was revealed, even Arabs
have to study Tajweed.
The purpose of Tajweed
The Qur'an is the word of Allah, and its every syllable is from Allah. Its recitation must be taken very seriously. The purpose of the
Science of Tajweed in essence is to make the reciter proficient in reciting the Qur'an, observing the correct pronunciation of every
letter with the rulings and characteristics which apply to each letter, without any exaggeration or deficiency. And so through this the
reciter can recite the Qur'an upon the way of the Prophet (SAW) who received it from Jibreel who received it from Allah (SWT) in
the Classical Arabic dialect that it came down in.
Tajweed Module 1: Reading Practice
Tajweed is the art of reciting the Qur'an correctly and beautifully; it is essential for every person who recites the Qur'an even if just
in Salah. Our recitation in Salah is directly addressed to Allah (SWT) and it is a pity that so many people make severe mistakes in it
because of a lack of implementation of Tajweed rules. This course is for beginners introducing basic rules of reading, and
elementary training under the teacher. This course will ensure that students recite their short surah’s correctly and get them fluent in
reading Ayahs of the Qur`an with the correct pronunciation and basic stretches.
Tajweed Module 2: Basic Rules
This course continues on from the module1 course and mainly focuses on extended practice of recitation and Tajweed rules
implementation in reading. The course is suitable for anyone who has studied some Tajweed before at a basic level so that he/she
is aware of the common rules and is able to recite with some Tajweed application but now requires more prolonged training and
practice.
Tajweed Module 3
This course continues on from the level 2 course and focuses on developing students' ability to recite a greater number of surah’s
with Tajweed as well as develop greater fluency in reading the Qur'anic text with Tajweed. One will also increase in the amount of
memorisation.

Introduction to the Sciences of the Qur`an
Qur`an Intensive (tafsir)
This course will provide an overview of the structure, themes
and guidance provided in each of the 114 chapters of the
Qur'an. Providing a systematic study of each of the Surah’s as
follows will do this:
• How surah names are related to each Surah and the
historical context of its revelations (Asbab al-Nuzul)
• Inter-textual relationship and coherence (Nazm) between
the Ayahs of each Surah and the relationship with the
preceding / following Surah
• Cross-reference to other parts of the Qur'an to
demonstrate how 'the Qur'an explains the Qur'an'
• Discussion on linguistic and stylistic devices (Balaghah),
problems with translation/ interpretation and alternative
plausible interpretations
• Explanation of key passages in each Surah
• Practical guidance and lessons that can be derived from
each Surah
This one day intensive course looks at various aspects of the
science of Divine revelation, how the Qur`an was revealed,
preserved, compiled and transmitted through generation after
generation. It also briefly covers the exegesis (tafsir) and
translation of the Quran. The Importance of such a subject is that
if one is to properly grasp the divine Message one needs to fully
understand the circumstances that surround the message.
Although some part of this special knowledge can be derived from
the Qur'an itself, there remain other areas of knowledge that can
only be discovered by wider study and research. The branch of
knowledge, called 'ulum al-Qur'an will give one a complete
understanding of the message of the Qur'an, by understanding its
setting and circumstances. According to a general definition,
'ulum al-Qur’an denotes studies concerned with the book of
revelations sent down upon the last Prophet Muhammad (SAW)
namely:
• Its revelation.
• Its collection.
• Its order and arrangement.
• It’s writing down.
• Information about the reasons and occasions of revelation.
• About what was revealed in Makkah and what in Madinah.
• About the abrogating and abrogated Ayahs.
• About the 'clear' and the 'unclear' Ayahs.
• The term also covers Qur'an-related studies, such as:
• The explanation of Ayahs and passages by the Prophet
himself, his Companions, their followers and the later
exegetes of the Qur'an.
• The methods of explanation.
• The scholars of exegesis and their books

Course Description
Shari’ah, or Islamic law, is the "centerpiece and backbone of the religion of
Islam." It is based on the Qur’an, which Muslims believe is the revealed book of Allah given to Prophet Muhammad over 23 years,
ending in 632 CE, and the Sunnah, or example of the Prophet Muhammad, whom Muslims believe was divinely guided. The Hadith,
which are sayings of Muhammad and provide information about the Sunnah, were recorded in the two centuries after Muhammad’s
death in authenticated hadith collections. Islamic law prescribes Muslim behavior in every aspect of life from private matters between
the individual and God to relationships with others from the family or the widest community. The Shari’ah contains categories and
subjects of Islamic law called the branches of fiqh (literally, "understanding"). They include Islamic worship, Family relations,
Inheritance, Commerce, Property law, Civil (tort) law, Criminal law, Administration, Taxation, Constitution, International Relations, War
and Ethics, and other categories.
Was developed in response to a growing need for an understanding of the Islamic faith within global communities. The lack of formally
recognised training education in Islamic traditions was also addressed. The course provides Islamic education within the current global
context, while staying true to Islamic traditions. With the inclusion of the study and critical analysis of the origins, sources, and
principles upon which Islamic jurisprudence is based. The Certificate in Shariah Studies provides students with an advanced
knowledge of Islam that includes a highly developed comprehension of the theological, jurisprudential, historical and contemporary
aspects of Islam. Islamic sciences are studied from both a classical and contemporary perspective and students graduate with the
ability to understand and read from the religious texts covering detailed knowledge of Islamic Jurisprudence, in addition to an
understanding of Hadith science and related vocabulary. The course prepares students with an advanced insight of the Islamic faith,
which can prove beneficial for further academic study, or for a range of professions such as teachers, public servants, companies or
any individual or Islamic institutions.

Course Description
Sources of law. A branch of religious knowledge called fiqh, or
understanding, is the theoretical foundation of Shari’ah. Usul al-fiqh, or sources of law, defines the principles and methods on which it
is based. The recognized primary sources of Islamic law are the Qur’an and Sunnah. In matters that were not clearly spelled out in
these sources, Muslim jurists developed other methods of finding a solution to a question. The first is ijma’ or unanimous consensus
among jurists, and the second is qiyas, or decision by analogy. Unanimous consensus means that after making public a judgment
about a matter of law, jurists found general agreement with it, and no jurist made sound legal arguments against the ruling.
Unanimous consensus belonged mainly to the time when jurists and knowledgeable people were known to one another in the
growing Muslim territories. The principle of ijma’ is being debated today. It might apply to longstanding agreement of scholars over
time, or take on new importance with the possibilities offered by mass communication.
Analogy means using logic and reasoning to apply a known law to a new situation not covered in the original law. As an example of
analogy, Islam forbids Muslims to drink wine. Jurists have applied this prohibition by making an analogy to other intoxicating
beverages like whiskey and beer, as well as drugs such as opium. They stated that the Islamic sources gave as the reason for
prohibiting wine that it intoxicates. Thus, other intoxicating substances were also prohibited by analogy. If the answer cannot be found
by making an analogy from a known case, then other categories can be applied to select an acceptable solution or judgment. Istihsan
means deciding in favor of the public interest in a matter that is not otherwise prohibited. Another source is ‘urf, or custom. Jurists
placed a value on preserving what is familiar to people in a certain place, based on established tradition. For example, people in
different geographic areas had long-standing customs about sharing irrigation water (some shared based on amount of time allowed
to irrigate, while others shared based on amount of water). Respect for custom became an important source of diversity in the
application of Islamic law over time and across geographic space, respecting ways that people did things according to their traditions
as long as they did not violate Islamic principles or standards.
MIU’s Diploma in Shariah Studies aims to equip its students with knowledge and skills that will enable them to have an in-depth
understanding of the religion and civilization of Islam, as well as a closer comprehension of textual application of divine texts. The
Diploma in Shariah Studies, which is an advancement of the certificate in Shariah Studies, offers a multi directional and multi-optional
program that extends from Tafseer (exegesis of the Qur’an) to historical sociology of Muslim societies, from hadith (traditions of the
Prophet) to modern Islamic thought. The course not only opens doors to the great heritage of Islamic civilization for its students, but
also enables them to discover the philosophy and knowledge that are produced in the modern world. Includes a study of Usool al-fiqh
(the principles of Islamic jurisprudence). The main topics of study are the daleels that are universally considered authoritative,
followed by the controversial daleels (excluding those most relevant to al-Maqasid al-Shari’ah), linguistic issues relevant to
interpretation of the texts, the nature of Shari’ah rules, and issues concerning ijtihad.

specific rules or thorough extraction of those rules from the
revelatory texts according to the methods of classical legal theory
(usul al-fiqh), but rather as defined in terms of the overall
‘purposes’ (Maqasid) for which Allah swt revealed the law, this is
known as ‘the theory of the purposes of divine law’ (Maqasid Al-
Shari’ah).
Advanced Diploma Course Description
• You will study general characterization of the Maqasid al-
Shari’ah and its origins in the Qur’an
• Classification of the Maqasid and a certain order of priority
that is integrated into the structure of the Maqasid
• Historical developments and the contributions of some of the
leading ‘ulama’, to the theory of the Maqasid
• Differential approaches the ‘ulama’ have taken toward the
identification of the Maqasid and the relevance of he
Maqasid to ijtihad and the ways in which the Maqasid can
enhance the scope and calibre of ijtihad
One of the leading classical scholars who developed this notion
was Imam Abu Ishaq al-Shatibi, an Andalusian scholar who lived
1388 AD. Scholars over the years and to this day, have differed
over as to what constitutes a Maqasid (an objective), how many,
and how it is identified and whether textual or not. Al-Shatibi’s
argument was that maqasid’s are known from clear injunctions,
but can they also be known from a general reading of the text by
way of induction? And determining what is beneficial and harmful
cannot be left to human reasoning alone (as most western
theorists advocate, as in the social contract theory and the
normative stakeholder theory).
In terms of Shariah, there are five foundational goals (Maqasid al-
Shariah). These are the preservation of:
• Religion / Faith
• Life (nafs)
• Lineage / Progeny (nasl)
• Intellect (‘aql)
• Property / Wealth (mal)
The Advanced Diploma in Shariah Studies is a progression from
the Diploma in Shariah Studies with a deeper focus on the
subjects of Usool ul fiqh and its application. The objective of the
course is to provide the students with advanced training in
academic research and writing within the Islamic context enabling
students to analyse and extract canons from divine texts. At the
end of a course, a student should be able to demonstrate clear
evidence of undertaking a detailed supervised study of a topic in
Islamic Studies. Candidates research their projects with guidance
from an appropriate supervisor. This course will be examined by a
project of 10,000 words.

The(Seerah(Programme(
Faculty(of( Seerah (
“Off course I love him!” this is the answer of any Muslim when
asked, “Do you love the Prophet (SAW)”, but do we really love him
(SAW)? Do we really know who he was enough to love him (SAW) It
is natural that when a person claims or displays love for another individual that he or she would want to know him better. In the
same way one who claims to love the Prophet Muhammad (SAW) has to know this individual if he really claims this type of love.
Along with this reason there are many benefits and blessings associated with this matter
Allah commands us to follow the example of the Prophet (SAW)
We have been commanded by Allah in the Qur’an to follow the example of the Prophet (SAW). Allah (SWT) says in the Qur’an,
“Certainly you have in the Messenger of Allah an excellent exemplar for him who hopes in Allah and the latter day and
remembers Allah much.” Surat Al-Ahzab (33) Verse 21
The Prophet’s (SAW) character is an excellent example for us to follow, and we can learn this example by studying the Seerah.
Muhammad (SAW) was a perfect model as a human being in each and every aspect of his life. He was a political leader,
military leader, an imam, a father, and a husband. And there is no example better than his to be successful in any of these
positions. His personality and character are like that of no other person and the best example for us to follow. Whose life is
better to learn from than to learn from the life of the best man to ever walk the face of the earth, the Prophet (SAW). And there
is no example better to follow than to follow the example of the man who Allah commands us to follow, the Messenger of Allah
(SAW).
Seerah increases our love for the Prophet (SAW)
Studying Seerah is a sign for our love for the Prophet (SAW) as well. When you love somebody you would want to know as
much as possible about that person. Similarly if you love the Prophet (SAW) there has to be an indication of your love for him
(SAW). And one of the signs of a mu’min (believer) is their love for the Prophet (SAW). If a person loves the Prophet (SAW)
then he is a mu’min and when a person has no love for the Prophet (SAW) then he is not a mu’min. If a person claims to love
Mohammed (SAW) then there must be an interest in him or a reason as to why he loves the Prophet (SAW). There must have
been something special in the Prophet (SAW) that makes a person love the Prophet (SAW) over everyone else. We learn those
special things about the Prophet (SAW) in the Seerah.
The Seerah Programme
The life of the Prophet SAW is both inspirational and emotive and is yet full of lessons and anecdotes that continue to unravel
themselves to us to this day. Studying the life of the Prophet SAW is an absolute must for everyone.

The life of Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) is full of countless examples that

The life of Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) is full of countless examples that show his status as a role model for Muslim societies and individuals. His life is one that was dominated by a superior morality, good habits, noble and gentle feelings and superior skills, all of which are characteristics that help prevent people from getting entangled in a web of sin. The rich and the prosperous, the poor and the needy, the ruler and the ruled, the weak and the lonely, the conqueror and the victorious commander, the teacher and the student, the preacher and the mentor, the merchant and the craftsman, the employer and the employee - in other words, every sort of person can find truths in Prophet Muhammad's life that constitute an example for them to follow.

Course Description Usool Al Fiqh
Usool ul-Fiqh: it is the science concerning the comprehensive evidences of fiqh. Since fiqh consist of either
i)
Masaa‘il (issues) concerning which the ruling by one of the five rulings is sought
ii)
It
is the dalaa‘il (evidences) employed in extracting and determining these masaa‘il (issues)
So fiqh is actually knowledge of the masaa‘il (issues) and the dalaa‘il (evidences). These dalaa‘il (evidences) are of two types: -
i) Comprehensive evidences that encompass every ruling - from the beginning to the end of fiqh - of a single kind; such as our
saying: “al-amr lil-wujoob (a command is indicative of an obligation).” Or: “an-nahee lit-tahreem (a forbiddance is indicative of
a prohibition).” And other similar evidences. So these are part of Usool ul-fiqh.
ii) Detailed evidences that are to be understood in the light of the comprehensive evidences. So when such is completed, then
the ahkam (rulings) can be resolved.
Thus, the ahkam (rulings) are in need of their detailed evidences, and the detailed evidences are themselves in need of comprehensive
evidences. So by this, we recognise the need and the necessity of knowing Usool ul-fiqh, and that it aids in the understanding of fiqh
itself, and that it is the foundations for deducing and making ijtihad in the ahkam (rulings).
Usool al-Fiqh Studies explores the principles and the complexities of Islamic Jurisprudence in a way that refers to classical scholarship
as a means of understanding contemporary issues and their rulings. The course will lead to some competence in jurisprudence
allowing the student to research further and give a basis for deeper understanding. This course for those who wish to understand Usool
al-Fiqh in some detail. It covers the principles of Usool using classical texts of Usool al-fiqh to understand the methods of extraction
and classification of rulings according to the rules of Shariah.
Objectives of the course
• To enable the student to understand the origins of the Science of Usool al-Fiqh.
• To familiarize the student with the proofs for the authority of the various types of
evidence recognised in Usool al-Fiqh and the arguments of those who reject
various proofs.
• Rules regarding interpretation of textual evidence
• Rules in fiqh.
• How to deal with contradictory evidence.
• Ijtihad and its rules
• What is the difference between Islam, Shariah and Madhab?
• How can we determine the Shariah ruling of an action

Course Description

The principles Usool of Islamic Jurisprudence [fiqh] deals with the derivation of rulings [ahkam] relating to all matters of worship [‘ibadah], dealings [mu’amalat] or any type of act conducted in this life from the Qur’an and the Sunnah of His Messenger, peace be

upon him. In order to do this accurately, a scholar must strictly adhere to certain principles and regulations: a science termed Usool al- Fiqh (the principles of Islamic Jurisprudence). Generally, the study of Usool al-Fiqh incorporates the study of the following four main branches:

i) Islamic sources (or evidences) on which all of the ahkam have been based. These are texts of the Qur’an and the authentic Sunnah as well as the consensus of the Companions [Sahabah]. This also includes the discussion of proof their types and their authority.

ii) Rulings and what they mean, their types, what affects them, how they can be applied, and the conditions relating to their use. The types of ahkam refer to obligations [wajib], prohibitions [haram], recommendations (Mustahabb), objectionable [Makruh] and the sanctioned [Mubah]

iii) Principles or rules available to the scholars to deduct and deduce ahkam based on the adillah aforementioned

iv) Qualifications and conditions required of the jurists [fuqaha] responsible for the correct application of Usool al-Fiqh. This is sometimes referred to as the conditions of ijtihad.

collect them, and those whose hearts are to be reconciled, and to

Stories of the Prophets It's time you know what happened to the great prophets of Allah (swt). Have you ever wondered about the stories of the previous prophets and their people? A course covering the stories of the lives of over 12 prophets who were sent down before Muhammad (SAW) by Allah (swt) to spread the true message of the oneness of Allah (swt). How much do you know about the story of Adam (as)? Why was Yusuf (as) thrown into a well? What happened with Musa (as) and the Pharaoh? Was 'Isa (as) crucified? How did Yunus (as) end up in the belly of the whale? This course will answer all of these questions. Growing up in the UK we often hear the stories of our prophets through the narrations of Christianity. Isn't it time we know what Islam tells us about our prophets?

S īrah: Life of the Prophet Muhammad (SAW) This course will trace the life history of our beloved prophet Muhammad SAW from the days before the advent of Islam, known as the time of ignorance. The course follows his birth and upbringing through to his receiving of prophet hood, the spread of Islam in Makkah and the immigration to Madinah including his many struggles and battles. The life of the Prophet SAW is both inspirational and emotive and is yet full of lessons and anecdotes that continue to unravel themselves to us to this day.

The Four Rightly Guided Rulers This course covers the early post prophetic era and looks at the lives and rule of the four successors to leadership of the Muslims after the passing of the prophet Muhammad (SAW). Students will learn the history and have the opportunity to understand and examine how the condition of Islam and the Muslims compared against politics and other worldly influences in the beloved Prophets legacy.

Course Description
Allah has sent Prophet Muhammad (SAW) with the guidance and religion of
truth that it may prevail over all falsehood. Furthermore, he has been
commanded to present all of the religion of Islam to mankind. So Allah
revealed to him the Qur’an and the Sunnah and commanded him to explain
to the people what has been sent down to them, in order for them to ponder
over, act upon and benefit from. Thus, the Qur’an and the Sunnah are the 2 sources by which Allah has provided and establish
the proof against His slaves and upon these two sources is built the ruling of belief and action. Anyone who wishes to use the
Sunnah as a source of proof has to be certain that it fulfills two important conditions;
1. The Sunnah been transmitted is truly connected to the Messenger of Allah (SAW) (i.e. the Hadeeth is authentic).
2. The Tafseer (explanation) of the Hadeeth points to the proof, which is been established by the Hadeeth.
So due to the first point, it was necessary to formulate a set of rules and principles as guidelines to differentiate between
narrations which were authentically transmitted from the Prophet of Allah (SAW) and those which had been falsely attributed to
him. The Scholars of the past have under taken this enormous task and responsibility in collecting the various rules and principles
regarding this subject, under the title: ‘Mustalah al Hadeeth’ (the study/science of narrations).
This course is designed and tailored to equip students with the main fundamentals of the various sciences of Hadith, and to
connect the student with the classical texts of the scholars of Hadith comprehensively. It also focuses to build the aptitude of the
student by allowing the student to implement the sciences of Hadith theoretically, practically, and analytically with sound
comprehension. From the essentials of the course is for the student to identify and acknowledge the achievements of the scholars
of Hadith by them serving the sciences of Hadith, the anatomy of the compilation and perseveration of the Hadith, throughout the
different ages of Islam. An indispensable objective is to engineer students academically to defend the Sunnah & Hadith and to
refute the deceptive doubts and false arguments of the orientalists and rejecters of Hadith.

Faculty(of(Hadith
Course Description
The Sunnah (the actions, sayings and confirmations of
Prophet Muhammad (SAW) is the second source of Islamic
legislation and must be in complete agreement with the first
source (i. e. the Quran). The term Sunnah comes from the root
word ‘sanna’, which means to pave the way.
Sunnah can be used to describe a path that people follow. In Islamic terminology, Sunnah applies to a prophetic way, which includes
references to the Prophet’s sayings, actions, approvals, physical features and character traits. His actions pertain to anything he did,
as authentically reported by the Companions, May Allah be pleased with them. His silent approvals on different issues meant he didn’t
oppose or mind what he saw, heard or knew of the actions or sayings of his Companions. Sunnah also includes everything
authentically narrated concerning the Prophet's physical features and his traits. The Quran and the Sunnah complement each other.
Without the Sunnah, Islam is not complete, likewise without the Quran, Islam is not complete.
This course is designed and tailored to equip students with the main fundamentals of the various sciences of Hadith, and to connect
the student with the classical texts of the scholars of Hadith comprehensively. It also focuses to build the aptitude of the student by

Madhabs. It has its principles, which are implemented in order to deduce and derive correct Fiqh rulings solely based upon the Hadith.

Course Description

Allah preserved the Sunnah by enabling the Companions and those after them (may Allah be pleased with them) to memorise, write down and pass on the statements of the Messenger (may Allah bless him and grant him peace) and the descriptions of his Way, as well as to continue the blessings of practising the Sunnah. Later, as the purity of the knowledge of the Sunnah became threatened, Allah caused the Muslim nation to produce outstanding individuals of incredible memory-skills and analytical expertise, who journeyed tirelessly to collect ! hundreds of thousands of narrations and distinguish the true words of precious wisdom of their Messenger (may Allah bless him and grant him peace) from those corrupted by weak memories, from forgeries by unscrupulous liars, and from the statements of the enormous number of ulama, the Companions and those who followed their way, who had taught in various centres of learning and helped to transmit the legacy of Muhammad (may Allah bless him and grant him peace) - all of this achieved through precise attention to the words narrated and detailed familiarity with the biographies of! the thousands of reporters of Hadith. Action being the best way to preserve teachings, the renewers of Islam also revived the practice of the blessed authentic Sunnah.
