It is possible to provide a basic (though only partial) outline of what was taught at Ottoman madrasas. Students would study from the books of (sarf), syntax (nahiv) and logic (mantik) and then hadith and commentary on the Qur'an (tefsîr). Other subjects studied included mathematical sciences and philosophy (hikmet) and jurisprudence (fikih).
