Usul Al Fiqh – Legal Theory

Usul ul-Fiqh (legal theory) is the study of the basis upon which Islamic jurisprudence is derived. This subject explores the origins, proof, and mode of deriving rulings.  More than just the theory, students are taught a combination of practical and theoretical aspects of this subject which allow for a comprehensive understanding of Fiqh and its derivation. Since Islam is a faith suitable for all times and places, Usul ul-Fiqh is the key with which we understand how to interact with nuances of the modern era according to the Quran and authentic prophetic sunnah.
