This course will provide students with an in-depth look at ritual, spirituality, and theology as it relates to birth, death, and dying in Islam.  We will look at recommended acts to be performed at birth, funeral rites, and etiquettes around illness and providing care to the sick.  Students will also be provided cultural immersion to better equip them with real-life scenarios, especially those who work with Muslim clients in areas relevant to the subject, i.e. hospital staff, childcare providers, chaplains, clergy, hospice workers, medical professionals, social workers, funeral directors, and others.
