The aim of this project is to support instructors of Islamic courses in developing an effective course syllabus that suites the learning needs of students at different ages. To this end, key concepts in four areas of Islamic teachings namely Islamic Beliefs, History of Islam, Islamic Laws and Islamic Ethics are suggested in the form of course outlines.
Each course outline begins with a brief description which provides participants and teachers with basic information about the objectives and content of the course and continues by introducing some reference books and major topics to be covered in the class. The reference materials are mainly selected from online books so that they can be obtained easily. We have also included various reference resources for each topic to keep the syllabus flexible.
The courses are divided into three levels of primary, high school and college Level. Hitherto, the syllabus of college level courses are prepared and distributed among experts who are involved in organizing Islamic courses to receive their comments.
The syllabus of college level courses are organized around the following broad topics:
In the course of Islamic beliefs a general overview on the five fundamental principles of Islam, namely Monotheism, Divine Justice, Prophet-hood, Divine Leadership and Resurrection is presented. In the course of History of Islam, the life of the Holy Prophet, Lady Fatimah and the twelve Infallible Imams (peace be upon them) and their eminent role in disseminating the teachings of Islam are explored. The course of Islamic Ethics introduces Islamic moral values in four main sections: personal and social ethics, Ethical rights and obligations according to Imam Sajjad’s treaties of rights and ethics in supplications and hadiths of the infallible Imams and finally the course of Ahkaam provides students with a summary of practical laws concerning the daily life of young adults.
