The AhlulBayt Islamic Mission (AIM) is proud to present its Islamic courses in aid of furthering Islamic education. We recognise that the majority of people have full-time commitments and on this basis have built structured Islamic courses for the seekers of Islamic knowledge.
Our Islamic courses are structured into 8 hour courses, each hour dedicated to covering a specific aspect of the chosen subject. Our environment allows for close contact with the instructor of the course in order for you to benefit by asking the various questions and receiving assistance in your Islamic development.
These courses predominantly take place in London but we are eager to have them in other cities as well. Please contact us if you are interested in hosting AIM courses in your locality.
PROOFS FOR THE EXISTENCE OF GOD
From philosophy, science and revelation
‘Soon We shall show them Our signs in the horizons and in their own souls until it becomes clear to them that He is the Real. Is it not sufficient that your Lord is witness to all things?’ (Qur’an 41:53)
At the heart of our existence burns a question: Why am I here?
It is a question each of us must answer if we are to puzzle out our place in the Cosmos. But then why is the Cosmos here, or anything for that matter? Why is there something rather than nothing?
Theists say that God is the best explanation of our existence, but is this just a comforting thought or can this claim be supported with evidence? Is there any proof that God exists?
This course aims to familiarize students with the main arguments for God’s existence, their relative strengths and weaknesses, and possible atheist counter-arguments to them. It will also look at the contributions made by leading proponents of both theism and atheism and take into account the latest relevant scientific theories.
Topics covered include:
• Why is God’s existence or non-existence worthy of discussion?
• What is the relationship between God and science?
• Is matter all that exists, or is there something else beyond matter?
The specific proofs we will examine are:
• The argument from morality
• The argument from consciousness
• Intelligent design
• The cosmological argument
• St. Anselm’s ontological argument
• Mulla Sadra’s ‘Proof of the Veracious’ (Burhan al-Siddiqin)
