Maqasidi Thinking
Set our Purpose to this Uprirgt Way of Life

INSTRUCTOR INFORMATION Professor Jasser Auda President of Maqasid Institute Global

COURSE DESCRIPTION
Reasoning in Islam is not what happens in the neurons of the mind, it is rather what happens when the heart reflects. Allah (s) talks about the heart’s the faculty of remembrance, reflection, understanding, of thinking and therefore, in Islam, the heart can be examined as an apparatus with independent thinking. But how can the heart think, how can the thinking faculty of the heart be in harmony with nature?

Thinking can be multidirectional, with various lenses of philosophy, events dictating their direction and all sorts of ideas and meaning that sprout as a result. It is crucial we choose a way of thinking that is compatible and aligns with a divine master plan of the universe and how our faculties of thought should sync in harmony with God’s design.

SYLLABUS
It is very important to reflect, examine and organize the way we think. One of the major objectives of the Qur’an is to organize our thinking.
