Diploma in Theology, Logic and Philosophy

Overview

Diploma in Theology, Logic and Philosophy is a unique course dealing with one of the most intellectually demanding subjects in Islamic education. The complexity of these subjects is multiplied by the fact that throughout the Islamic history there have been many different schools of theology at odds with each other. This was given rise by the emergence of different philosophical approaches to knowing God and understanding revelations.
