Saturday Pre-Hawza course running alongside the highly regarded Hawza programme has been designed to give students an opportunity to explore key concepts relating to the field of Islamic sciences. The course aims to provide basic insights into a broad range of categories of traditional Islamic academic scholarship for those wishing to progress to further study or to simply deepen their existing knowledge.
The programme is intended to benefit youth at the A level of study and upwards as well as adults by equipping them with the ability to better contextualise their role as conscientious, practising young Muslims living in the West and striving to meaningfully and positively contribute to the society they live in both domestically and globally. Students will start examining the role of religion within contemporary cultural and social trends, basic methodology behind religious study, and begin developing appreciation for the significance Islam places on critical reasoning through careful study of primary traditional Islamic science subjects and become familiar with some of the various approaches of their interpretation.
Teaching focuses around key introductory modules of Islamic Ethics, Theology, Islamic Law and Arabic morphology & syntax combined with more innovative subjects of Islamic Plan for Life and Lessons on Knowing the Quran
Studies are conducted in authentic, and vibrant Islamic environment which provides a unique learning experience and an opportunity for the students to form positive, peer social interactions and engage during the lunch break in more informal course relevant discussions with the Hawza trained scholars. The College provides a range of extracurricular activities, tailored to further enrich and nurture their students understanding of Islamic culture, spirituality and heritage.
