An Introduction to Islam


Course description

Islam, as a world religion, was founded by the Prophet Muhammad in the seventh century C.E. In this course, you will learn about the basic religious, political and social history of Islam from its beginnings to modern times including its sectarian and ideological divisions. You will be introduced to its core theological, ritual, legal, textual and historical components. We will study the history and interpretation of the Qur’an as the scripture and foundational text of Islam and look at other religious texts such as Prophetic Sayings (Hadith). We will also explore some of the modern issues and challenges facing Muslims today and their responses, in Muslim and non-Muslim countries, such as cosmopolitanism, sectarianism, Islamophobia and the rise of ISIS.
