Islamic History

The Department of Islamic History, like our other departments and divisions, aims to increase the level of knowledge of students and to transfer this knowledge in accordance with the formation. It also aims to enable students to understand Islamic History and Civilization; to evaluate events within the conditions of time and space; to be able to look at events from political, social, cultural and economic perspectives in a multi-dimensional way; to understand that Islamic Historiography is not a purely chronological classification. In our faculty, Siyar, Islamic History I, Islamic History II and History of Islamic Civilization courses are taught within the Department of Islamic History. In these courses, the beginning of Islamic historiography, its sources, the Prophet and the period of Hulefâ-i Râşidîn, the organizations, culture and civilizations of Muslim-Turkish states established in various regions of Islamic geography throughout history are discussed.
