- General consideration of the genesis and development of the schools of Islamic thought and their methodology

- Insights into the foundations, discourses, theories and methods of the schools of Islamic thought

- Learning about the history and present of the schools of Islamic thought, as well as their ideas and starting points in the context of Islamic philosophical and mystical schools

Early in Islamic history, religious movements have emerged because of political and theological disagreements. This led to divisions of the religious community. As a result, various theological schools were created later. In the genesis and development of the law schools the political and theological movements have also played an important role. This course offers the possibility to look more closely into the various theological schools (eg Ash'arites, Māturīdites, Mu'tazilites, Shī'ītes), law schools (mainly Hanafis, Shafi'ītes, Malikites, Hanbalis, Dja'farites, Zaidites), philosophical schools of thought and various mystical movements. In the course, the relevant issues will be discussed in the context of the following topics:

 

1- Formation of various religious denominations in the context of political developments

2- The religious-political context of genesis of the Islamic theology, the notion “sin” and its political and theological implications

3- The situation of the great sinner and the question of the eternity of hell

4- Koran interpretation (tafsir)

5- Development of Islamic law and the science of Hadith

6- Formation of theological thought and schools

7- Philosophical schools of thought: al-Kindi, al-Farabi, Ibn Sina, Ibn Tufail, Ibn Rushd, Ibn Khaldun

8- Mystical movements: Formation and development of Sufism

9- al-Ghazali as a philosopher and mystic

10- Mystical orders and brotherhoods: Malâmatiyya, Yasawiyya, Baktashiyya, Naqshbandiyya, Mawlawiyya

At the end of the course the student should be familiar with the methodological and substantive differences within the Islamic religious sciences and between different legal and theological schools as well as between mystical and philosophical movements
