Jurisprudence is the most practical of the Islamic studies for any Muslim, directly effecting and dictating their daily lives. Over the course of the year, students learn the basics of worship and interpersonal law in the two most widespread schools among Sunnis, the Shafi’i, and Hanafi, as well as survey other schools especially when rulings stand in contrast. Finally, students will read through parts of the famous comparative work by the Maliki Scholar Ibn Rushd, giving them a glimpse of the vastness of Islamic Jurisprudence.
