[Classical Text Diploma] Orientalists Baffled by Imam Shafie's Risalah

"I know many orientalists who study this work find it very hard to believe such an advanced work could have been done so early on in the history of Islam. But we have manuscripts of al-Risala written by Imam Shafie's students." - Dr Mohammad Akram Nadwi

Why are the orientalists from the top universities of the world baffled by al-Risalah? What make al-Risalah a unique work in the history of mankind? This is your opportunity to get to know Imam Shafie and his Risala more closely with this historic diploma programme by Shaykh Dr Mohammad Akram Nadwi - one of the foremost scholars, researchers and thinkers in the world today. 

Al-Risāla Introduction:

"The main purpose of the the [Classical Islamic Texts Diploma] Programme is to make very clear that our history of scholarship is not only about collecting information but it is more than that - to understand, to think, to analyse, to support, to refute, to debate and to discuss. In our time the Muslim mind has become idle - not thinking, not understanding and they cannot challenge any opinion, they cannot prove anything, they cannot refute anything. Very often in madrassas teachers even don't encourage the students to ask questions, to discuss and to argue a point. So I hope InshaAllah that the people who attend these classes will be able to understands these sciences properly, to think properly and also to understand that this is human knowledge so how we can agree, how we can differ and how we can make arguments based on the sources."- Dr Mohammad Akram Nadwi [Introduction to Classical Islamic Texts Diploma]
