THE KNOWLEDGE BASE OF THE NUR UZ ZAMAAN INSTITUTE

Maliki Fiqh

After the science of Aqeedah there comes the science of Fiqh or Islamic jurisprudence. Fiqh encompasses everything a believer does through each and every minute of the day. With out it he would be like the spinning compass, knowing which way to go but unable to face that direction. We believe in and recommend the following of a particular madhab from among the established madhabs of fiqh in Sunni Islam. You will find almost all the material posted on our website having to do with fiqh revolves around the madhab of Imam Malik ibn Anas raheema’Allah ta’alaa or the Maliki Madhab as it is called.
