ML 403 – Methods and Perspectives in Islamic Law

The current module is devised to familiarise students with the most important methodological approaches and schools in the field of Cultural Sciences in general and in Islamic Law in particular. Since each competent researcher in Islamic Law ought to have a good grasp of a number of ‘methods’ for collecting, analysing and interpreting data and information, critically assessing available evidence, rival views and contesting theories, and providing satisfactory explanations for the phenomena under investigation, a selection of most relevant research methods is also introduced. In view of the fact that successful researchers should be able to present the results of their findings in effective ways, various techniques of writing and presenting research essays and projects on themes related to Islam will be introduced. The overall aim of the Module however, is to familiarise students with the ability of critical thinking and to equip them with the required skill and competence for discerning and exploring genuine ‘problems’ in the area of Islamic Law and developing their intellectual potentials for producing novel solutions for the detected problems. This ability in its apex is technically termed ijtihad.
