This unit is suitable for all levels, from absolute beginners and new Muslims to advanced students.

In this unit you will study a classical text of Islamic Theology (Aqida), The Resplendent Pearls (Al-Fara'id Al-Hisan) to explore core Islamic beliefs about matters of the unseen.

In an age of information, Muslims face many challenges about their faith and beliefs. Although the basis of Islam is revelation, there is a growing need to rationalise our beliefs to effectively present them to the wider world as the ultimate truth.

Therefore, along with analysing the scriptural basis for these doctrines in the Quran and Sunnah, you will evaluate an array of rational responses to answer skeptics.
