In the beginning of spreading of Islam in todays Afghanistan, some sahaba (companions of the prophet Mohammad) and tâbi’ûn (followers; muslims who saw the sahaba) scholars have been sent to this region for teaching the Islamic religion in general and especially Islamic fiqh (Islamic jurisprudence). In short time, many famous fiqh scholars were educated from this region, they undertook this duty and continued this education until today. The fiqh education that started in mosques in the begining, continued also in madrasas after some time. Today the fiqh lessons have been included in modern primary, secondary and high schools’ curriculum, as well as the formal and informal madrasas. In higher education, the fiqh classes are included in law faculties’ curriculum as well as shariah (theology) faculties. This article provides informations and evaluations about the mentioned issues.
