Ifta Course

Comprehensive Islamic educational program designed to produce scholars well-versed in various disciplines of Islamic knowledge.


An Ifta Course refers to a specialized Islamic educational program focused on training individuals to become qualified Islamic jurists, known as muftis. The term “Ifta” is derived from the Arabic root “افتى,” which means to issue a legal verdict or religious judgment. The mufti is an expert in Islamic jurisprudence (Fiqh) and is authorized to provide legal opinions (fatwas) on matters pertaining to Islamic law.

The curriculum of an Ifta Course typically covers advanced studies in various branches of Islamic jurisprudence, legal theory, and the principles of deriving legal rulings from Islamic sources. It is designed to equip students with the knowledge and skills required to analyze complex legal issues, understand the diverse schools of thought within Islamic jurisprudence, and issue informed and well-grounded legal verdicts.

Key components of an Ifta Course may include:

Advanced Fiqh Studies: In-depth exploration of the principles and detailed rules of Islamic jurisprudence, covering various schools of thought.

Legal Theory (Usul al-Fiqh): The study of the principles and methodologies used in deriving legal rulings from the Quran, Sunnah (traditions of Prophet Muhammad), consensus (Ijma), and analogical reasoning (Qiyas).

Specialized Subjects: Depending on the curriculum, students may study specific areas of Fiqh, such as family law, commercial transactions, criminal law, and other branches relevant to contemporary issues.

Practical Application: Training in the practical application of legal principles and the issuance of fatwas under the guidance of experienced scholars.

Ethics and Professional Conduct: Emphasis on ethical standards and professional conduct for individuals issuing legal opinions in the capacity of a mufti.

Completion of an Ifta Course signifies that the individual has acquired the necessary knowledge and qualifications to provide authoritative legal opinions in accordance with Islamic jurisprudential principles. Muftis are often sought after for guidance on matters ranging from personal religious practices to complex legal issues, making their role crucial in providing clarity on various aspects of Islamic law.
