Through an examination of changing periods from the Prophet’s age to contemporary times, students are led to investigate the variety and richness of literature that has developed in Muslim societies over time. Examples from a wide range of literary forms and genres are used as a means to reveal to students the creative application of language by Muslims, including Ismailis, in varying contexts and cultures. The examples presented in this module include religious texts, historical biographies, moral fables, mystical poetry and devotional hymns. The examples are drawn from diverse Muslim traditions, including general Shia and Ismaili specific literature.
