The course is designed for students of knowledge and graduates of the ‘Alimiyyah to get a better grasp of Hanafi Usul al-Fiqh. Many of the classical books of Usul al-Fiqh can prove to be difficult to follow, so many students are left without a solid grounding in the field. Others may have studied the topic well, but require a refresher. These classes will offer the opportunity to complete Shaykh Salah Abu ‘l-Hajj’s Masar al-Wusul fi ‘Ilm al-Usul.

This course is a module from the Advanced Islamic Jurisprudence Program.
