A group of designated Islamic scholars have designed the curriculum to suit the schedules of even the busiest students. Imagine studying the Alim course in the traditional way right from your home under highly educated and designated scholars of Islam. Imagine joining  them through live video conferencing and being among those who followed the command of the Prophet (PBUH): one who is present must convey (the knowledge) to one who is absent.

Using an English, then Arabic medium, our six year Islamic studies course (Bachelor In Islamic Studies + Master in Islamic Studies) is designed and developed to cater specifically to English-speaking students. Our audience is men and women, who intended to study the Islamic sciences, but were prevented by their jobs or family responsibilities. This course is also beneficial for students in universities and colleges who desire to serve Islam, but whose ongoing education does not allow them to enroll in a full-time Islamic institute. It also targets those who cannot afford to travel abroad to study. Here is a chance for all of you to study Islam the traditional way and later serve your community as an Alim or Alimah.
