The Qatar Faculty of Islamic Studies a member of Qatar Foundation was established to achieve intellectual plurality that emphasizes the richness and diversity of the Islamic heritage.
Our vision is to become a locus of thought and dialogue that leads research and debate in all that relates to Islam and Muslims, be that contemporary concerns or issues of heritage.
Based on the diversity and tolerance of the Islamic Jurisprudence, QFIS provides a structure of study that adapts and contributes to the modern changing world.
Through this programme, students will become intellectually, morally, and technically capable of relating the Islamic legacy with all its texts, methodologies and principles to modern problems and solutions.
Our scholars will be capable to use these skills to advance development goals with moderation, creativity, and civilized interaction.
They will be highly adept at performing world class research in the field of Islamic Studies, and at initiating and sustaining global collaborations.
The Centers will promote research in the following key areas:
