Details: After completing Imam Shurunbulali’s Basic Creed and his chapter on Fasting, this semester we will aim to complete the chapter on Taharah (Purification) and commence the chapter of Salat. There will be plenty of note taking and discussion in this course. Participants will be required to take notes in a manner that they can easily refer to later. There will also be a test at the end of the semester.
The Foundations Course has been crafted by merging many elementary texts together. The purpose is to offer adults a sound and strong footing in the absolute essentials of everyday Islam. This is classically better known as Fard Ain (absolutely necessary or absolute essentials). In other words a course that easily allows you to cover everything you should have learned in your adolescence only with an adult twist (Perennialism etc.) Topics will range from: Faith, prayer, rulings related to the 5 pillars from multiple perspectives and path to salvation.
One very important aspect of this course is that, it will be taught with the vision of empowering students so that they will be able to confidently pass on the essentials to their dependents as per our long standing rich tradition.
There will be plenty of note taking and discussion in this course. Participants will be required to take notes in a manner that they can easily refer to later.
Who Is this Course for: Because this course is also part of a larger MCWS initiative of developing a complete part time curriculum for adults wishing to solidify basic Islamic concepts before plunging into advance sciences, there will be testing mechanisms.
