  • About the Course

    The period following the death of Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) ﷺ was certainly a formative period for the new Muslim Ummah. Without the presence of the Prophet among them, and the end of divine revelation, it was left to the rightly guided Khalifas to chart a course for the expanding Muslim community, while simultaneously dealing with issues of faith and practice among Muslims.

  • Course Method

    This will be a multi-semester course as the material is expansive. At the end of the course, students will have a deeper understanding of the place of the companions of the Prophet in the genesis of Islam, with specific reference to the first four “Khulafaa ar-Rashidun” - Abu Bakr, Umar, Uthman, and Ali (May Allah be pleased with them.)

  • Course outcome

    Students will be able to evaluate important decisions and controversies as they arose, and gleans lessons from this formative period of Islam.
