Family Law of Islam

  • Family is the basic unit of any Society.  A healthy Society can not be formed without organizing the family unit. This unit occupies a central position in Islamic law. Realizing the importance of this aspect of Islamic law, the academy has started working to launch a specialized correspondence course on family law of Islam. Ten units have gotten printed and remaining two units are under process. We hope that reading material will be ready soon and we will be able to launch this course after few months.
  • The Department plans to launch a correspondence course in Islamic Finance. Various units of the said course have been submitted to the research and publication department to take necessary steps.
Research Activities
Although the Department of Distant Learning acts as an educational institute as it provides education through correspondence courses, it is also participating in the research activities of the Academy. Four units of the forthcoming correspondence course of Islamic Finance have been written by Mr. Muhammad Abubakar Siddique Incharge Department of Distant Learning. Other units of the said course too are being written under his supervision.
Future Plans
  • Due to the increasing role of the information technology in the field of education, the department intends to extend its correspondence courses through online system. For this purpose negotiations are continued with International Institute of Quran learning to provide the facilities of online data handling.
  • Running correspondence courses of the Academy have been proven to be very significant and got a great appreciation from the participants. However, it is generally felt that there is an increasing demand to offer these courses in English Language, so that, the people living  abroad or those who do not understand Urdu can equally be benefitted by these courses. To meet this demand the department will soon start work on this project.
