QFIS’s Vision
Our vision at QFIS is to become a locus of thought and dialogue that leads research and debate in all that relates to Islam and Muslims, be that contemporary concerns or issues of heritage; and that produces scholars who are strongly‐grounded in Islamic faith, practice, and civilization, and who are open for engaging with all that their civilization produced, and with the wisdom and thought of other civilizations.

QFIS’s Mission
Inspiring thought based on the plurality and tolerance of Islamic Jurisprudence and civilization that enables Muslims, in terms of perception and practice alike, to face contemporary challenges. Our aim is to contribute to our age, rather than separate from it. We take it upon ourselves to make clear the rich, dynamic, and inspiring spirit of our Islamic heritage, to emphasize its tolerance, diversity, and hence, ability to serve all of humanity through infinite paths for dialogue and action.
