Dr. Jasser Auda
President of Maqasid Institute Global


This course offers an introduction to the topic of the Fiqh or a deep understanding of the hadith of the Prophet (peace be upon him).

It presents a general framework for the steps to be followed in the correct and holistic approach, namely, to survey the Qur’an for relevant verses, to check the authenticity of the chain of narrators as well as the content, to gather all the other related narrations in one context, and finally to make holistic and integrated conclusions.

A number of case studies are presented and explained in the areas of public affairs, family law, women in Islam, and the relationship between Islam and previous scriptures.
