The Faculty of Islamic studies aims to prepare students capable of communicating the message of Islam far and wide, along with the required knowledge, sciences, languages and curricula. The certificate granted thereby authorizes its holder to work in several fields such as teaching secondary school and university programs, teaching legal justice, reporting on religion, and joining religious and cultural organizations. Since its foundation, the Faculty’s goal has been to bring out Islamic sciences with a new vision that responds to the needs of the times and maintains the balance of Islam at every level of life. Its goal has been founded on the basis that the Islamic Sacred Texts are not static, but have rather developed in response to changing condition, preventing the Muslim from slipping into the shafts of underdevelopment and alienation. Through embodiment, the Faculty of Islamic Studies endeavors to transform visions into being in conformity with the permanent and variable rules of religion and the state, in order to answer all the questions posed by modernity. In addition, it strives to abide by the constant and fundamental principles of religion: (1) Islam is a guide to the most right, (2) it is the first and last religion that confines all other religions, and (3) it is a call for dialogue, interaction, and convergence.
It has been two decades since the establishment of this faculty, during which it absorbed hundreds of students from different Islamic countries, in addition to the scientific cooperation agreements it has signed with religious universities, possessions, and institutes.
