Teaching & learning
The Islamic Studies syllabus enables learners to gain a better understanding of the religious writings, history and current affairs of Islam. As a result, they are able to think and argue intelligently about the subject.
The syllabus is broad, and ranges from the beginnings of Islam and the evolution, content and role of the Holy Qur'an, to the beliefs and practices of Islam and the bases of Islamic Law. Learners develop knowledge about the dynasties and religious thought of early Islam, the variety in Islamic beliefs and the role played by Islam in the world today.
The syllabus year refers to the year in which the examination will be taken.
