Shariah Academy, IIU Faisal Mosque Campus, Islamabad

Shariah Academy (Islamabad) was established in 1981 as an independent Institute of Training in Shariah and Legal Profession. Its purpose was (and is) promoting the Islamic Legal Philosophy, orientation in Islamic Law and the Islamic Concept of Justice through the training of Judges, Attorneys, Prosecutors, Lawyers and other Legal Professionals who are the key players in the Judicial System of the countryLater in 1985, the Institute was upgraded to the status of an academy thus now known as Shariah Academy and attached to the International Islamic University as its constituent unit. The trainings of the academy aim at equipping its course participants with the vision and capability to Islamize the contemporary laws in the country. To meet its objectives, the academy operates with three sections; Training Section, Research and Publication Section and Correspondence Courses in Islamic Law Section.

The academy through its activities is trying to meet the needs of the day regarding interpretation, presentation and re-organization of various disciplines of Shariah and developing an understanding of Islamic Law and Jurisprudence.

Since its inception, sincere efforts have led the academy to bring about drastic changes in the thought content of the Pakistani Muslims who were once unable to define the procedure for the Inception of Shariah in the country. Now concepts are being cleared of doubts and an understanding about the way forward to install Shariah in the country is being gradually developed.
