STUDY CLASSICAL ISLAM...
IN A MODERN WORLD
Welcome to our courses page, the section is designed to provide the learner a flexible learning plan in which you can complete each module independently which will lead into a formal qualification. The aim of the qualifications is to equip the learner with the knowledge to be able to critically think, analyse information and be able to learn and research independently and be able to progress in there chosen fields. The qualifications offered are in various subjects in Religious and Philosophical fields. We are also offering the foundation level online modules for FREE (equivalent to 1 year of study or level 1), this will equip the learner with the basic knowledge and allow them decide there options for the future. The study options
Option 1 - Structured 3 years Islamic Scholarship (Alim/Alimah) Program
Option 2 - Free to view and learn modules (year 1) with an option to certify and progress onto the scholarship program
Option 3 - Flexible Islamic Scholarship (Alim/Alimah) Program
Option 4 - Module based learning
Option 5 - Crash Courses (1 to 2 day events) - (available to watch at no cost under Lectures)
We aim to provide the courses / modules in two main platforms these being online live learning and distance learning (recorded). Which option you choose is on your availability. Maturidi Institute is currently trying to make maximum use of the distance learning (recorded) system and therefore on all courses you may experience a mixture of live lessons and pre-recorded lessons. All live lessons are then also recorded for the future. Face to face courses are also planned in the future for specialist modules. Main reason for pre-recorded is it allows the scholars and teachers to spend their valuable time on other projects including but not limited to advanced research for future and publications such as articles and books.
Our Uniqueness (to name a few)
All modules / qualifications subject to completing and passing the examination come with certification and isnaad (Authentic certificate going through the teacher to the author of the text)
Avoid Senior teachers / scholars to repeat the same text / subject. All previous lessons are recorded and saved so learners who have not covered the topic area can do so. The teachers / scholars can then focus on research and teaching new optional and specialist modules each year advancing and progressing that area of study. We also have a strong ethos in scholars of the future to advance the knowledge and therefore the Shaykh may choose senior students who have qualified to teach.
After completing 3 years / 3 levels and after qualifying there is no stop you may continue with Maturidi and study the specialist fields and either provide support or carry out your own research project with the guidance of Shaykh Atabek and other scholars.
No time frame - For the Islamic scholarship program we have a 3 year advisory however depending on your pace of learning you can complete this in a longer time frame or even a shorter time frame.
We have a strong ethics in which we believe that the basic / foundation knowledge in each field should read everyone and therefore Shaykh Atabek has decided there will be no cost for these level 1 FREE - Basic / Foundation knowledge for modules.
Continuous development - There is no end to learning, research and seeking knowledge. During our research if we believe, we need to go back to a text and further review and teach it with new principles we will do without hesitation.
Islamic Modern Thought
Islamic studies has generally been approached from either traditional faith-seeking perspectives or the so-called Orientalist perspectives. The uniqueness of the new course is the synthesis of the strengths of both approaches. The need for this course is therefore to encourage the expansion of the study of Islam as an academic discipline, to provide an educational context for the Western world to acquire deeper knowledge of Muslim civilisations and the changes affecting the Muslim world in terms of politics, economics, social structure and issues and to encourage critical thinking and analysis in the study of Islam and Muslims.....read more
