This course offers a short Introduction to the Islamic Methodology of (Uṣūl al-fiqh) that explains the Principles of Islamic Jurisprudence. It introduces the main sources of Shari’ah which include the Quraan, the Sunnah, consensus of Opinion (Ijma’), Analogical Deduction (Qiyas), and custom (Urf).  Uṣūl al-fiqh teaches us how we get Islamic Fatwa from these Sources, why this verse in the Quraan means that something is (Wajib, Haram, Mustahab, Makruh, or Mubah)?. Uṣūl al-fiqh explains why there are many schools in Islam (Hanafi, Maliki, Shafi'i, Hanbali). What do we mean by Ijtihad, Naskh, Istihsan, Istishab? All these terms are explained in Uṣūl al-fiqh and in our course we will know why these subjects are essential to understand the core of Shari’ah and how the Fatwa is produced.
