The Intro to Ifta course is an advanced level course for graduates from an alimiyyah course. It runs Wednesday evening and is designed to equip students with advanced knowledge of fiqh and research skills. The course is a way for students to continue their studies after graduation and develop a better understanding on how to apply their theoretical studies to the real world.
Alongside the weekly teaching, students take part in numerous class discussions under the supervision of the teacher, with a view to understanding the fiqh rulings from the earliest fiqh texts. Each week students are also given reading material as well as questions they must research and answer, developing their ability to navigate the fiqh texts, improve their research skills and become aware of key fiqh rulings.

Mufti Liaquat Zaman
Born and raised in Birmingham, Mufti Liaquat Zaman completed his school and college education before moving to Pakistan at the age of 18 with an intention to seek sacred knowledge. A short hifdh programme preceded official entrance onto the Alimiyyah Course at Jamiah Uloom Al-Islamiyyah, Banori Town where Mufti Liaquat Zaman dedicated the next 8 years of his life. Under the guidance of leading teachers Mufti Liaquat Zaman committed himself to the study of the various Islamic sciences with diligence and zeal. He developed close ties with his teachers, benefitting immensely from their company inside and outside of the classroom.
Upon graduation in 2008, Mufti Liaquat Zaman decided to further develop his passion and ability in Fiqh and enrolled onto the Iftah Course at Jamiah Tayyibah, Karachi. Here an intense year of specialisation terminated with Ijaazah in Iftah, whereby Mufti Liaquat Zaman returned to the UK with a view of imparting knowledge to his local community.
