General Muslim Studies

This programme examines three areas: the core political history of the Muslims as exemplified in their khalifas from the Khulafa ar-Rashidun right down to the last of the Osmanlis; the intellectual history of the Muslims as shown by the madhhabs of Islam, both those of fiqh and 'aqida, as well as heterodox movements, particularly those that have contributed substantially to the modern age; and a study of the societal forms of the first community of Islam in Madina. With the addition of the MFAS Residentials module on ‘Aqida, Hadith and Fiqh, it comprises four modules:
