The Belief of the Masses: What Muslim Youth Need to Know [Elective]

Course Overview

In this course, we will cover the tenets of faith that are obligatory for every Muslim to know. These tenets include the necessary attributes of Allah Most High, attributes that are merely possible for Him, and attributes that are inconceivable for Him to have. Likewise, we will cover the attributes of the Messengers (upon them be peace) and tenets of faith related to the Hereafter.

Such knowledge of Islamic beliefs is important because it is a necessary component for the Believer in their relationship with Allah Most High. Knowledge of Allah is the highest form of knowledge and the stepping stone to knowing Allah more intimately is knowledge of His attributes and why we desperately need a relationship with Him.

Through this course, students will gain clarity on Islamic beliefs, the reasons behind belief in God and the Hereafter, greater reverence for Allah, His Messengers, and Islam as a whole.
