The Fiqh of Marriage
The Fiqh of Marriage Seminar
The second year Bachelor of Arts students hosted a seminar on Saturday, 19 August 2017. The subject matter covered every aspect of matrimony, from the selection criteria of a spouse, to discussing the Muslim Marriages Bill the event was incredibly well presented and positively received. A mother of one of the students commented on the immense progress that her daughter has shown through her studies.
“Alhamdulillāh, today the IPSA 1st year BAIS students presented a seminar on the illustrious four Imāms, Imām Abū Hanīfa; Imām Mālik; Imām al-Shāfi’ī and Imām Ahmad ibn Hanbal, who are the founders of the four most widely known and followed schools of Islamic Jurisprudence.
After weeks of hard work, and dare I say a few tears due to nerves, they outdid themselves. Māshā Allāh. They made themselves, their parents and their asātidhah proud, especially since all of what they put together today was done by themselves, from the catering logistics, to the PowerPoint presentations to the items they presented.
The objective of the event, in my humble opinion, was attained, for the students to develop their organisational skills, their public speaking skills, their research skills, but most importantly for them to be exposed to and live up to their amānah (responsibility) to teach what they have learnt, for the Hadīth narrated by Uthmān ibn ‘Affān, as recorded in the Sahīh al-Bukhārī, is clear when it says that the best of you are those who learn the Qur’ān and teaches it to others (this refers not only to Qur’ān recitation but to all forms of Islamic knowledge).
Alhamdulillāh, may this be the first of many such opportunities for our students, may they always remain humble throughout their journey in seeking knowledge and beyond, may they remain guided, may their akhlāq (manners and character) be a testimony to their knowledge gained, and may they become good, just and well informed leaders of the future generation. Āmīn.”
“Studying at IPSA has been a truly enlightening experience. It has enhanced my understanding of the Deen and enriched the way I live and practice Islam. I would recommend IPSA to anyone who wishes to connect with Allah (SWT) with understanding and an increased sense of sincerity to toward Him. IPSA’s ethos cultivates respect, unity within diversity and living Islam according to the middle-way.”Someone famous in Source Title
