Introduction

This course covers all the key questions you have ever had about Islamic beliefs in the extra rational:

Why will I be questioned about my actions if everything is already pre destined?

What is free will and does it exist?

What are Jinns and how do they behave?

What happens after you die?

What will take place on the Day of Judgement?

Life in the grave!

Dreams, what do they mean?

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, we will also evaluate an array of rational responses to answer skeptics.

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