Our students study Islamic Law (Fiqh) in order to familiarize themselves with the divine rulings of the religion of Islam. By mastering the basic rulings of issues like prayer, fasting, ritual purity, Islamic taxation, etc., and becoming acquainted with some of the more detailed issues, our students will be able to apply these rulings in their own lives and assist others in understanding their obligations to God.
