One of the central concerns of IRTIS is to explore, construct, and provide a hermeneutics of continuity of the traditional Islamic sciences. This is done through several means:
- Professionalising seminary-trained and modern academically-trained scholars by providing traditional teachings based on the dars-i niẓāmī to academic scholars of Islam (as confessional academics), and providing academic skills to seminary scholars, to enhance both their teaching, research, and writing skills.
- Teaching novice students of the traditional sciences through the dars-i niẓāmī together with the academic skills as provided by The Olive Foundation (Dār al-ʿUlūm al-Zaytuniyya), the mother organisation of IRTIS.
As of 2020, Qāḍī Muftī Amjad M. Mohammed will accept a selected number of private students who will be provided the opportunity to study:
- Selected texts or subjects which the student wants to acquire or enhance, such as on the topic uṣūl al-fiqh (Muftī Amjad is famous for teaching uṣūli texts such as Mullajeevan’s Nūr al-Anwār).
- Specialization (takhaṣṣus) in the advanced subjects of iftāʾ (science of providing fatwā) and qaḍā (judgement).
- A curriculum, based on the dars-i niẓāmī, set up by Muftī Amjad M. Mohammed catered to the level and needs of the student. This will especially be beneficial for Muslim academics who want to expand and enhance their expertise with traditional Islamic studies in the form of a post-academic seminary program.
The teachings can be done through both online and on-site means. The tuition fee will take into account both the means of study (online/on-site) and means of the student (working/non-working). All students will, next to their studies, be tutored in research and writing skills to reach out to both general community and academic audiences.
