Islamic Sciences

The Islamic sciences (also known as 'the sciences of religion') are a group of historically defined religious disciplines that Islamic scholars (ulama) construct and interpret Islamic religious knowledge. Among these sciences are:
1. Ilm al-fiqh (Islamic jurisprudence):
2. Ilm al-hadith: the investigation of the veracity of Prophetic traditions or hadith.
3. Ilm al-rijl: the biographical study of hadith transmitters to assess their credibility.
4. ilm al-kalm (also known as asl al-din, "the roots of religion"): speculative theology
5. Ilm al-lugha (Arabic grammar)
6. Ilm al-tafsr: Qur'anic interpretation
7. Ilm al-naskh: the study of abrogation (parts of the Qur'an that surpass or cancel other sections)
8. Ilm al-tajwd: principles for good Qur'an recitation
9. Ilm al-qiraat: on the many ways in which the Qur'an may be recited

Culture

Culture is defined as the features and knowledge of a particular group of people, and it includes language, religion, food, social behaviours, music, and the arts, among other things.

The cultural study is an interdisciplinary study that investigates the political dynamics of modern culture and its historical underpinnings. Cultural studies scholars often explore how cultural practices link to larger systems of power associated with or working via social phenomena. These include ideology, class structures, national formations, ethnicity, sexual orientation, gender, and generation.

The ten themes are:

1. CULTURE

5. INDIVIDUALS, GROUPS, AND INSTITUTIONS

6. POWER, AUTHORITY, AND GOVERNANCE
