The Quran, being the primary source for Islamic legal thought, has had great significance in the development of civilizations. The explanation of the Quran determines the Muslim’s outlook of his environment. Just as prevalent in any field of study, the science of explaining the Quran, classically known as Tafsir, has undergone numerous evolutions throughout history.
The divine text that holds the ultimate truth has been subject to multiple perspectives that have originated from various facets of thought. Naturally, methodologies of explaining the Quran have differed, based on the preferences and specializations of the Scholars of Quran, or more apparently, due to differences in theological beliefs. New-age thought has also introduced new portals of understanding the Quran.

Islam has always been centred around knowledge and intellectual enrichment. Throughout history, Islamic sciences have evolved to explore the nuances in understanding Islam from its core sources and subject matters.
Muslim scholars have thoughtfully posited the numerous Islamic sciences in a cohesive manner to facilitate its comprehensive understanding, highlighting the interdependency of the various fields of study. It is crucial to understand that Islamic sciences encompass more than just issues of personal beliefs and acts of worship, rather they form a holistic curriculum of learning that provides a framework of progression for society.
It is important for us to have a clear outlook on Islam and its structure of knowledge, so that we can identify and review the branches of knowledge that we have been familiar with and those which we have neglected. This would help a seeker of knowledge in planning subsequent steps towards learning the Islamic sciences.
Join us to unveil the grand blueprint of Islamic sciences, and to appreciate the rich heritage of Islamic academia that every Muslim should inherit.
