The teaching and learning of Fiqh among converts is very important and requires a holistic and comprehensive teaching planning. This is because these converts are in the process of building new self -perceptions, values, beliefs and life practices. Therefore, this article aims to analyze the level and content of jurisprudence subject modules implemented in convert educational institutions in Malaysia. In addition, this study focuses on the methods of teaching and learning the subject of jurisprudence that will be utilized by teachers and mentors of converts. This qualitative study was conducted using data collection and data analysis methods. The method of data collection was done through library research. The data obtained were analyzed based on inductive, deductive and comparative methods to obtain the results of the study. This study found that the content of the mualaf fiqh module implemented in this mualaf educational institution has taken into account the aspects of time and objectives of the establishment of their respective institutions as well as the ability of students. The main components in jurisprudence education such as purification of prayer, zakat, fasting, hajj and umah have been included in the respective modules as the basic modules of fardhu ain. The fiqh of ibadah is more focused than the fiqh of muamalat, munakahat and jinayat. Furthermore, from the aspect of teaching and learning methods in the field of fiqh requires a practical approach that can facilitate students to understand and appreciate and then practice the Shari'ah in their lives. It is hoped that this study can help the authorities in strengthening the jurisprudence module, which in turn would produce more competent teachers and mentors of converts and able to provide a precise understanding to the converts in the subject of jurisprudence.
