Al-Wasatiyyah: The Just Balance: resumes Nov. 25

NOTE: This class runs from Nov. 25 - Dec. 9, in three sessions. This course will explore Wasatiyyah as the Way of Moderation in interpreting and implementing the Islamic code of conduct in our lives. It emanates from the Qur'anic concept: "Thus, we have made you a middle nation (or a nation justly balanced) so that you may be witnesses over mankind and the Messenger may be a witness over you".

Over time, Muslim scholars who have examined the purposes of the Islamic Shariah, and the evolution of Islamic jurisprudence have developed a framework for understanding Islam as a lived experience based on this concept of moderation.

At the end of the course, students will have an understanding of the core principles of Wasatiyyah, having explored these principles in relation to other concepts and methodologies which may have been prevalent from time to time with the Muslim Ummah.
