This module will introduce students to the most important political and theological groupings in the formative period of Islam, from the period following the murder of the third caliph, ʿUthman, until approximately the middle of the 4th/10th century. By studying these sects in the context of their time, as well as in interaction with one another, students will gain a greater understanding of the reasons for the formation of the theological schools considered orthodox in Sunni Islam. In addition, students will cover in-depth the contemporary religious groups of the modern era as well as the tract which details the “aqida for non-sectarian people”: Aqida al-Tahawiyya.
