This topic is designed to introduce you to the purpose of the course and to encourage you to reflect on your intentions in participating (Module 1). It also contains reminders of Prophetic (peace be upon him) guidance around the concept of "responsibility," and reflections on the historical and institutional context that may influence--for better or worse--our understanding of "responsibility" (Module 2). Finally, it describes useful frameworks for thinking about how we define "community" and "the community" (Module 3). 

Note: there are no "concepts" or "documents" for this module.
