Experienced educator and scholar Dr. Bilal Philips has written this excellent four-year high school Islamic Studies curriculum. Part one (the first year), Islamic Studies Book 1, may be used in Grade 7, 8 or 9. Book 1 covers basic Islamic knowledge beginning with the concept of tawheed (the Islamic concept of monotheism), and continuing with Qur’anic studies that include the science of tafseer (explanation and commentary) with examples given of select chapters of the Noble Qur’an. Book 1 also covers the science of Hadith and the sources of Islamic law (fiqh). Study questions at the end of every unit help the student to make use of his or her new knowledge and assess progress. This is a well written, well organized textbook that teachers and students of Islamic Studies will find indispensable.
