Prophetic Biography & History is one of the earliest branches of Islamic literature and provides insightful context to all other subjects. Students learn the popular details of the Prophetic Biography (Sirah) concurrently with a famous analysis and interpretation of events in the life a Muslim, especially in the modern age. Furthermore, they go through a reassessment of the Sirah’s many narrations in light of Hadith authentication. This is coupled with two short courses in Islamic History covering the early formative period and modern developments providing students an enriched and informed understanding of their religion in the broader historical spectrum.
