Course Overview

The Fiqh of Ritual Purity and Salah (Taharah and Salah) is a unique course, designed by Al Balagh Academy to educate the students with the essential Islamic rulings on purity (Taharah) and prayer (Salah). It aims to equip the learners with a clear understanding of the concepts involved in Islamic Purification required for Salah. Furthermore, it will demonstrate how to perform the ablution (Wudhu) as per the Islamic rulings that govern it. This course will further explain the important Islamic teachings on prayer (Salah). It will also cover contemporary rulings by presenting case studies of the various unforeseen scenarios. Purity is the basis of almost every act of worship in Islam. It has also been described as “half of faith” by the Messenger of Allah (peace and blessings be upon him). In regard to worship, purity stands as a prerequisite for the validity of Salah. The Messenger of Allah (peace and blessings be upon him) said, “The key to Salah is purity.” Learning the rulings of purity along with the rulings of Salah is essential for every Muslim. The course will describe various topics that include, ruling of water, wudhu & Ghusl, Tayammum, Masah on socks, removing impurity (Najasa) and much more. Each session will cover the rulings of purity through the classical understanding of Islamic Shari’ah along with its contemporary application in relevance to the present-day cases.
Prayer (Salah) is amongst the five major pillars of Islam (Arkan ul Islam). Prayer is deeply enshrined in our Islamic tradition and one of the most essential worships that is obligatory upon every mature Muslim male and female. Alike praying Salah, learning about the injunctions, instruction and order of Salah is equally necessary. The course will integrate traditional teachings and practice, with the contemporary matters related to Salah and its implementation day-to-day scenarios. The course will be based on Al Fiqh al Hanafi and is suitable for those who follow the same school of thought.
