Fiqh, Usul al Fiqh and Islamic Economics are important and relevant disciplines that young Muslim scholars should strive to learn and master. This was the message from IIIT Secretary General Prof. Omar Hassan Kasule to participants during the launching ceremony of the online certificate courses for Fiqh & Usul al Fiqh and Islamic Economics organized by IIITESEA for the year 2022. In his speech, Prof. Kasule reminded the participants that while Imam al-Shafi’i is regarded as the first person who systematised and developed Usul al Fiqh, the discipline had evolved gradually over many years since the period of the companions of the Prophet Muhammad (pbuh). He noted that other prominent Muslim scholars such as Imam Abu Hanifah, Imam al Ghazali, Imam al Juwayni and many others have contributed to the field of Usul al Fiqh. By establishing a powerful methodology for deriving legal rulings from the main sources of Shariah i.e., Qur’an, Sunnah, Ijma’, Qiyas, etc., Prof Kasule observed that Usul al Fiqh offers a unique intellectual platform for problem solving that could also be utilised in other academic disciplines such as Islamic economics so as to help researchers to find solutions to contemporary economic and social problems facing the Ummah.

Prof. Kasule commended IIITESEA for organising the online certificate programmes and thanked all the trainers who would be running the classes for the duration of the programme. Finally, he urged the participants to take full advantage of the opportunity to equip themselves with the knowledge and skills that will be made available during the courses. Earlier, Prof. Emeritus Dato’ Wira Jamil Osman, as the Director for the Online Courses delivered his welcoming remarks. He thanked IIUM especially the Deans and lecturers from AbdulHamid AbuSulayman Kuliyyah of Islamic Revealed Knowledge and Human Sciences (AHAS-KIRKHS) and Kuliyyah of Economics and Management Sciences (KENMS) for their full support. He also thanked the participants from more than 60 countries for their participation. Both Prof Dr Shukran Abdul Rahman as the Dean of AHAS-KIRKHS and Prof Dr Prof Dr Gairuzazmi Mat Ghani as the Dean for KENMS thanked IIIT and looked forward to the success of the online courses. Prof. Dato’ Dr. M. Fauzan Noordin, the Director of IIITESEA affirmed IIIT’s commitment to future collaboration with IIUM  and expressed his hope that the online courses series would be further developed into a Diploma or Professional Certificate Program recognised by relevant certification agencies.
