Academic and Ethical Standards to follow:
Remember to support your argument with evidence from relevant primary (Quran, hadith, histories) and reputable secondary sources (books, articles located through academic search engines, e.g. JSTOR, Encyclopedia of Islam, etc.).
When you cite somebody else’s opinion, make sure to indicate the original source in your text. The un-cited borrowing of others opinions is plagiarism.
Independent research, whereby you consult sources (either in Arabic or English) outside the course text, is desirable and will lead to a higher grade. No less than 5 sources should be used in constructing your answer.
Notice all essays contain several parts; your paper must seek to answer all of these.
