(a) Make sure that your understanding of the topics you are required to explain is correct. If you show an inaccurate understanding, you will lose points.

(b) Make sure that every sentence you write is true, justifiable, and clear.

(c) Make sure that you are writing for a beginning level student who is new to the material, and write so that such a student can understand what is going on. (Professor Mirza is not your audience here, so do not write to explain things to him). Lack of clarity will lead to losing points.

(g) Use standard, neutral English in your answer (not slang).

Assignment #1: Key Ideas, Origins Of Islam

Instructions: In Response To Each Of The Five Questions Given In This Sheet, Give A Clear, Well-structured Answer. While You Should Study The Material From The Books And The Lectures In Order To Give The Best Answer You Can, Each Answer That You Hand In Must Be The Result Of Your Own Work, Reflection, And Understanding.

Please Review This Sheet Carefully Several Times And Make Sure To Ask Me Questions About It By Email If There Is Anything You Don’t Understand.

Format For Each Answer:           Maximum 1 Page, Typed, Double-spaced.

Required Font Size: 12.

Use Only Times New Roman Font.


Use Standard Margins (1.0-1.25″).

Use A Separate Sheet For Each Separate Answer.

Emailed Answers Will Not Be Accepted.

Format For Assignment               All Sheets Are To Be Stapled Together.

Deadline: This Assignment Is Due To Professor Mirza In Class On Monday March 11th.

Grace Period: There Will Be A Grace Period Till Wednesday March 13th. No Assignments Will Be Accepted After The End Of Class On March 13th, For Any Reason At All.

Academic Honesty:   Any Objective, Convincing Evidence That Someone Has Copied The Writings Of Others Without Giving Due Credit, Even To The Extent Of A Single Sentence, And Even If Some Minor Changes Have Been Made, Will Result In An ‘f’ For This Assignment, And An ‘f’ For The Course. No Exceptions Will Be Made For Any Reason.

All Your Assignments Will Be Rigorously Cross-checked Against Each Other And Against The Textbook, And A Random Sample Will Be Processed Using Other Methods As Well.

None Of These Rules Is Subject To Any Discussion Whatsoever.

Working With Others: You Are Allowed, And Encouraged, To Discuss These Questions With Your Classmates. However, The Goal Of Any Such Discussion Must Be To Understand The Material For Yourself, And Then To Explain The Material According To Your Own Understanding, And In Your Own Words.

Key Theme Of Assignment 1:  The Point Of This Assignment Is To Give You A Chance To Prove That You Understand This Material.

So You Must First Have An Understanding Of The Relevant Topics, And Then You Must Demonstrate That Understanding By Imagining That In Each Answer, You Are Explaining The Material To Someone New To The Study Of Islam And New To The Topic Of The Question.

This Will Be Repeated Frequently, Because It Can’t Be Stressed Enough: You Are Not Addressing Professor Mirza With These Answers, Rather You Are Addressing A Hypothetical Beginning Student Who Is New To These Topics.

Strategy For Working On These Questions:

For Each Question, It Is Recommended That You Follow These Steps.

(1) Make Sure You Understand The Question As It Is Stated To The Best Of Your Ability, And Make Notes On Any Ideas That You Have In Response To The Question.

(2) Determine What Aspects Of Your Lecture Notes Are Most Relevant To Answering The Question.

(3) Study Carefully The Parts Of Your Lecture Notes That You Identified In The Second Step Above, Until You Are Sure You Understand Them.

(4) Think About How To Apply Your Understanding To The Specific Question In Front Of You.

(5) Make Notes About How To Explain Your Answer To A Beginner Who Is New To This Specific Topic.

(6) Write A Draft Of Your Answer Within The Space Limits Already Mentioned.

(7) Revise And Check Your Draft To Improve It Until You Are Confident That It Satisfies That Requirements Laid Out In The Relevant Section.

(8) Make Sure That Your Grammar, Punctuation, And Spelling Are All Correct, And That Each Answer As Well As The Assignment As A Whole Satisfies The Format Requirements Laid Out Above.

Warning: If You Merely Try To Loosely Copy Some Passage From Someone Else While Changing Names And Details, You Will Not Only Risk Getting Charged With Dishonesty, But You Will Most Likely Get Very Few Points.

Writing Questions:

1. Explain Clearly And Briefly, In Your Own Words, The Key Events Of The Meccan Phase Of The Prophet’s Mission.

2. Explain Clearly And Briefly, In Your Own Words, The Key Events Of The Madinan Phase Of The Prophet’s Mission.

5. What Criteria Would You Recommend To People To Help Them Decide Whether Or Not Someone Was A Prophet From God?
