Research Kick Start – Maqasid Shariah Made Simple by Fazrul Ismail this Sunday!

Posted by annkays on May 8, 2009

basmalahAssalamualaikum warahmatullahi wabarakatuh.

“Maqasid al-Shariah, or the goals and objectives of Islamic law, is an evidently important and yet somewhat neglected theme of the Shariah. Generally the Shariah is predicated on the benefits of the individuals and that of the community, and its laws are designed so as to protect these benefits and facilitate improvement and perfection of the conditions of human life on earth.”

– ‘Maqasid al-Shariah Made Simple‘ by Muhammad Hashim Kamali

Dear friends,

Always wonder what Maqasid al-Shariah is but have never really had the chance to learn more about it?
All the available resources are overwhelmingly lengthy to be read?
Need a simple explanation on the what’s and why’s of the Sharia?


Alhamdulillah, we are pleased to inform you that as part of the MasterPIES program that will be ongoing from April 15th to July 15th, a special session on Maqasid al-Shariah will be held this weekend by no other that our Akh Fazrul Ismail.

The details are as follow:

Alhamdulillah, the summer is almost here (it’s still Spring here in Michigan and I still need my blankie to keep me warm at night =) and mashaAllah the tulips are all blooming in profusion! The semester is over and alhamdulillah with all His mighty grace, I’m given another chance to pursue another interest of mine, hence the blog.

And Summer’s lease hath all too short a date.

Summer shall fade and time will fly and I, what would I do to make sure I get most of my summer? Plan shall I try but it is Him who will decide.
