This subject introduces students to the fundamental beliefs, practices, spiritual concepts, values and perspectives that shape the Islamic worldview. It focuses on how the primary texts of Islam, the Qur'an and narrations (hadith) attributed to Prophet Muhammad, cover these themes together with the views of classical and modern Muslim scholars and theologians. In particular, the monotheism of Islam, six essentials of beliefs, five pillars of Islam and Islam's views on human nature, life, universe and the Islamic response to the question of suffering are discussed.
