Full course description

To celebrate the month of Ramadan, we are offering a 75% fee waiver across all our courses. Apply the code RAMADAN23 when enrolling on the courses to make use of this offer. 


As a registered charity, we charge a fee for each course to cover our running costs. However, we aim to provide our education to as many people as possible. Students are therefore encouraged to get in touch if they require further fee waivers. Contact the Education Manager at


This course will provide students with extensive knowledge about the juristic process of deriving rulings regarding criminal law (ḥudūd). The course will familiarise the students with the language and terminology employed by classical jurists in the process of juristic inference (al-fiqh al-istidlālī) and will encourage critical analysis of how these rulings relate to the contemporary period.


Please note, this course is taught live and is available upon request. If you are interested in taking this course, please contact the Education Manager at
