Principles of Islamic law
The Islamic Finance & Transactions Programme is part of the Islamic Law Course. It delivers the subject matter in a modern format, utilising mature visual aids and in-depth resources to simplify difficult concepts. The programme focuses on the general principles of Islamic finance and transactions from all four canonical schools of Islamic jurisprudence. It builds on the key principles of Contract Law and journeys into multiple types of Islamic transactions followed by Islamic Finance.
The programme is divided into four key parts:
Introduction to Fiqh; the distinction between al-‘Ibādāt, matters pertaining to worship; and al-Mu’āmalat, matters pertaining to business and financial interactions, social interactions, penal law, and political and military interactions.
Part 1-4: students will be provided with notes and/or slides and will be expected to prepare from Mufti Taqi Uthamani’s ‘Introduction to Islamic Finance’.
