About this Programme
Islamic Fiqh is an essential discipline of traditional Islamic sciences. Requiring an analysis of normative positions in a diverse range of important new emerging issues from a truly global perspective in a rapidly changing world. This is proving quite challenging and crossing the lines of enquiry which question concepts we have never explored before or ever thought possible. The gradual change of social and political circumstances, new discoveries and the scientific, technological and digital revolution over the last decades has produced unprecedented challenges requiring the Islamic fiqh viewpoint of those modern and contemporary issues. The range of queries generically are diverse and vary between worship, medicine, dietary laws, family law to name but a few. This requires knowledge and awareness of both classical and contemporary fiqh, a specific set of skills in responding to legal queries and expertise in this discipline.
Muslim scholars attempted to address many areas of Islamic Fiqh and its application on the contemporary cases and the other areas of humanities and social sciences. Dealing with these challenges requires preparing the expert Muftīs and Muslim scholars who have the background knowledge and the skillset to work closely with academics and subject experts, allowing them to embrace both good leadership qualities and aptitude to deliver the Islamic response through a multidisciplinary approach.
However, this area of expertise has grown both horizontally and vertically to the degree that our current application of Fiqh to the contemporary challenging issues is, unfortunately, still in its early stages. The horizontal growth requires us to go back to the sources of our substantive law, jurisprudence and ethics and remove the differences and essential shariʿ principles that provide the guidance and framework to provide Islamic responses for technical questions. Thereby, Muslim scholars need to acquire some expertise in broader areas of theology, ʿilm al-kalām, tafsīr, ḥadīth and tārīkh. The new sciences have now diversified beyond just medicine, and into many other specialities, making it intersect with sciences such as politics, law, business transactions, financial contracts, medical science, philosophy of science, epistemology, metaphysics, anthropology, global public health and other areas of humanities and social sciences.
