Fiqh (Islamic Law)
Fiqh (Islamic Law) is the study of rules and regulations for worship. It is the most important subject to study because it enables a person to worship Allah (Most High) in the correct manner according to how the Messenger Muhammad (peace be upon him) taught us.
At the Kirkcaldy Central Mosque, we teach a popular text titled: Islamic Way Of Worship by the erudite scholar Shaykh Imdad Hussain Pirzada. The book is compiled in an easy and accessible manner covering the 5 pillars of Islam, with all the rules and regulations to carry them out correctly.
