Islamic Jurisprudence (Fiqh) is the science concerned with understanding the rules of Islam with detailed evidence from the sources of Islamic law.
The sources of Islamic law are:
- The Qur’an
- Sayings and actions of the Prophet Muhammad (s.a.w)
- Sayings and actions of the Twelve Imams
- The consensus of Shi’a scholars on a certain issue (Ijma) and intellect (Aql)
The rules of Islamic Jurisprudence (Fiqh) are divided into five sections:
- Obligatory, (Wajib) such as praying five times a day
- Prohibited, (Haram) such as murder
- Recommended, (Mustahab) such as charity
- Un-recommended, (Makruh) such as wearing black clothes all the time
- Permissible, (Mubah) such as walking, running, sleeping and most actions
