These are the main questions that this course is attempting to answer.
It is a course on the methodology of Islamic Studies, which focuses on the revelational basis, definitions, scope, and classification of knowledge, from the Islamic point of view.
The course will discuss the relationship between knowledge and purification of one’s heart, the logic of purposeful connectivity in the Qur’an and what we can learn from it for our daily lives? How to build an Islamic framework that allows an authentic perception of reality, and how to build new disciplinary and phenomena studies from the Islamic perspective.
