This course is not designed for Muslims alone and here is why; First, taking the time to know some of the basics about your Muslim neighbour’s faith allows you to ask informed questions that provoke deep conversations. As you familiarise yourself with what your Muslim neighbour holds most dear, you convey that you care about them. Next, your understanding of Islamic theology and the traditional accounts of historical development will shape your knowledge of the fundamental differences between Islam and Christianity and more. You should also enroll in this course to pass your IRS Examination.
At the end of this course, candidates should be able to:
1. master the Qur’an and Sunnah as foundations of Islamic and social life;
2. be familiar with Islamic heritage, culture, and civilization;
3. be acquainted with the tradition of Islamic scholarship and intellectual discourse;
