Islamic Studies

Islam is a religion of peace, moderation and progression, but the Western media paints a negative image of our faith and is presenting it as synonymous with terrorism. Muslim seminaries-where learners are exposed to the classical Islam cut off from the contemporary world-have not risen to the challenge. It is against this back drop of rigidity of the religious class that this university proposes to acquaint students with Islam teachings in a moderate environment so that they may portray the belief appropriately.

Why this

Degree

MPhil in Islamic Studies is an intensive programme that gives us a thorough understanding of Islamic teachings and thoughts. It encourages learners to be inquisitive by engaging in Islamic research projects. The department aims at realizing the long cherished dream of striking a balance between the pristine values of Islam as outlined in the Holy Qur’an and the Sunnah, and the practical challenges of modern times. We try to cultivate a spirit of dispassionate research bringing about chiselled minds firm in belief but endowed with tolerance without, of course, being apologetic. The highly qualified academicians have been engaged to focus on achieving excellence in education-cum-research. The faculty will contribute to the intellectual, cultural and social development of the institution.
