Islamic awareness (part 2)

Today, Muslims all over the world are celebrating Isra wa al Mi’raj, the commemoration of the Night Journey of  Prophet Mohammed. In Oman Daily Observer one can read about the importance and the history of this journey.

Yesterday, in the ‘Ghameh Omer Al Rawas Mosque’ in Salalah, 60 women were honored with a certificate. Four years ago they started their journey of studying Islamic jurisprudence or Fiqh, meaning deep understanding or full comprehension. Fiqh deals with the observance of rituals, morals and social legislation in Islam. The Qur’an gives clear instructions on many issues, but details about these issues can be found in the sunnah (further revelation) and the hadiths (explanations from the Prophet Mohammed). This wider concept of Islamic jurisprudence is the source of a range of laws in different topics that govern the lives of the Muslims in all facets of everyday life. The courses were four years, once a week given by Sheikh Jlil Badr Mohammed Abu Zaid and were attended by eighty women. Twenty of them followed the courses, sixty women took part of the exam. The Ghameh Omer Al Rawas Mosque is the only place in Salalah where this Islamic jurisprudence was teached. The goal is to start a new course next year.
