Many Muslims stand confused on the differences of opinions they see on various matters in Islam. Isn't Islam from Allah (swt) ? Don't we Muslims have ONE Quran and One Sunnah? So, why is there such disagreement?!

This series of courses will take this topic from a practical perspective. Meaning, causes of disagreement and where it is acceptable and where it is not is a topic discussed in the Usool-ul-Fiqh realm. Studying such issues in this series of courses will be addressing issues of disagreement by studying the topics of Ijtihad themselves. So, we will be studying topics ranging from purification (Taharah), Prayer (Salah), Fasting (Siyaam), giving alms (Zakah), to Pilgrimage (Hajj). The study will present the Islamic evidences involved, analyze the honorable texts, and reflect on causes that might lead to differences in understanding. In addition, we will relate the various understandings of the Mathahib (schools of jurisprudence) to their respective principles of jurisprudence.

The approach to this material is not designed to convince one with one opinion over another, but rather to show why there is such a disagreement. Evidences and understandings will be presented to enable the Muslim student to adopt an opinion that convinces them most. Such adaption will be carried out based on knowledge of evidences, principles of jurisprudence, and disagreements. The aim will be to build awarness and appreciation of causes of differences , such that with further study and contemplation, students can start to compare opinions of  the Mujtahiddeen to eventually adopt that which convinces them the most.
