Experienced educator and scholar Dr. Bilal Philips has written this excellent four-year high school Islamic Studies curriculum. Part two (the second year), Islamic Studies Book 2, may be used in Grade 8, 9 or 10. Following on from what is taught in Book 1, Book 2 deepens the student’s basic Islamic knowledge of the concept of tawheed (Islamic monotheism). The science of tafseer (explanation and commentary) is also studied more in depth, with examples given of select chapters of the Noble Qur’an. Book 2 also presents the student with more detailed information regarding the science of Hadith and the sources of Islamic law (fiqh). Study questions at the end of every unit help the student to make use of his or her new knowledge and assess progress. This is a well written, well organized textbook that teachers and students of Islamic Studies will find indispensable.
