We design and deliver specific interest programs that are offered on university campuses and other community organizations throughout the world. Many of our offerings are also available online and can be accessed on our website. Special interest programs aim at engaging participants working or interested in a specific field who take a keen interest in how the maqasid methodology can add value to their efforts.

The underlying theme of all of MI’s offerings are the higher objectives or maqasid of revelation. Every program we offer provides participants with a basic understanding of the maqasid including how to approach the primary Islamic sources for guidance. Participants gain important insights in the process of studying the Quran and Sunnah as they relate to their context and the purposes they are seeking to fulfill.


Over the past decade, maqasid studies have witnessed a strong revival in graduate studies around the world. We have a keen interest in supporting higher learning through frequent lectures by our scholars, contributions to program development, course delivery and supervision of masters and doctoral theses. Our goal is to ensure that maqasid studies are reflective of the guidance in the Quran and Sunnah and that the methodology used is sufficiently robust to be applied across a number of disciplines to address sophisticated phenomena requiring a holistic approach.
Our core of well-established professors teach courses in the Islamic sciences, economics, politics, finance, governance and policy, climate and environment, society, and development among others. If your university or institution is interested in introducing a highly relevant and exciting course to your program whether as a special offering or permanent addition, please contact us.
