A. Course Synopsis:

This course introduces the basic concepts of worldview as conceived from the various perspectives; sociological, psychological, political as well as in the dialectical 
discourse between secularism and religious living.

We will focus on the meanings, characteristics and kinds of ideologies including some Western contemporary ideologies, such as materialism, secularism, modernism and post-modernism and contrast such ideologies with the concept of a worldview”.

These ideological conceptions will be juxtaposed with and analysed from the Islamic perspective.

Attendees will be exposed to several broad conceptions of what is the Islamic worldview culminating in the assertion that the Islamic worldview is an all-
encompassing vision of Reality and Existence as described and prescribed by Islam 
(Ru'yat al-Islam li al-Wujud).

This course would also provide the attendees with a strong understanding of the core of Islam and its main characteristics such as it being Syumul (Complete and comprehensive) and Rabbani (Divinely inspired).

Attendees will also learn the pre-requsite elements towards understanding the Islamic 
worldview. These include; the concepts of al-Tawhid, existence (Wujud) and ‘Ilm 
(Knowledge), the concepts of Iman (Faith) and Ihsan (excellence in ‘Amal (Deeds), the concepts of SunnatulLah (Workings of nature as acts of God), Nubuwwah (Prophethood), ‘Aql (Man's reasoning capacity) and Fitrah (Primordial nature of 
Man) in the discussion of Identity (Syaksiyyah) in Islam and the concept of Adab (The 
placing of things and self in their proper places) and ‘Adl (Justice) as well as the role 
of man vis-à-vis the Creator (al-Khaliq) and the rest of creation.

The crisis of values and identity facing the ummah in the contemporary information technology driven Knowledge Society, the idea of progress and modernity, the nature and challenges of globalization, liberalism and extremism will also be discussed.

Importantly, ideas regarding the understanding of the Islamic worldview will be presented in the light of the need for a deeper understanding, development and adoption of the Islamic worldview among Muslims whom this course is intended for.

B. Course Objectives:

1. Develop an awareness of the need for a deeper understanding of the worldview of Islam.

2. Develop an awareness of the need to adopt the Islamic vision of Reality/Existence thereby building the spiritual character of the person even in the face of other worldviews.

3. Acquainting and deepening attendees' understanding of meanings, objectives, foundations and essential characteristics and core concepts of Islamic and non-Islamic worldviews.

4. Nurturing attendees with understanding of the elements of Islamic worldview and its implications on knowledge, the self and roles and responsibilities of the Muslim.

5. Enlightening the understanding of current challenges pertaining to the worldview of Islam faced by Muslims and their responses from the Islamic perspective.

C. Course Learning Outcomes:

1. Define and differentiate the meanings, characteristics and element of Islamic worldview from non-Islamic worldview.

E. Course Participants' Testimony:

The course Brother Abdul Halim provides on the Worldview of Islam really opened me up to a lot of things… alot of truths. As an insan who has the tendency to forget (no one is perfect), the knowledge he has shared has definitely strengthened my iman and Islamic identity, motivating me to ikhtiyar and improve myself spiritually, insya Allah. I believe that others will also tremendously benefit from this course." – Azhar Abdul Aziz

“Tainted lens affects our vision. Unclear vision affects our ability to distinguish truth from falsehood thus rendering us imbalance in all aspects of our development. Hence the Islamic Worldview course conducted by Brother Abdul Halim is much needed to reconstruct our vision and view of life as well as to unlearn and relearn so as to conform to the true vision. Knowledge gained from his generous and valuable inputs have helped me in recognising the value of adab and to be alert of the many misconceptions in this confusing times, allowing many rooms for reflection and contemplation with respect to my position in the scheme of things.” – Hayati Mokmin

“I can see that Brother Abdul Halim sincerely has the Ummah's welfare at heart. And I hope more Muslims will take up this course and see the world through Islam's lenses and not be confused or influenced by other worldviews then conducting deeds that contradict the real Islamic values, nauzubillahi min zaliq.” – Norhayati Abu Bakar

"The concept of adab is integral in Islam and knowing that everything has its proper place in a hierarchy created by Allah SWT has enabled me to be rightly guided in life (like a compass) and have a peace of mind amidst the fast-paced lifestyle in Singapore. Thank you, Brother Abdul Halim, for your generous sharing." – Shazlee Nordin

“I've benefited a great deal and gained greater clarity in perspective, in that the Islamic Worldview is indeed a separate paradigm from the Western Worldview, enabling me to see the Truth (Haq) so as to adopt values that are congruent with Islam. This is critical especially since we live in a secular community. I strongly recommend this course to those who are keen to strive and build an Ummah that we can be proud of in this world and in the Hereafter, ameen!” – Nor Azzah Isnin
