Our adult education classes focus on teaching the traditional Islamic sciences in short and focused seminars. We started our classes in 2016 in the DC Metropolitan area realizing there was a need in the local community for such seminars, especially for those people with busy schedules.
Our classes are designed such that people with busy lives can take them without having to take extended time out of their schedules.
Our instructors are local, highly qualified and have trained extensively in the traditional Islamic sciences. Additionally, our instructors have a good understanding of the today’s modern cultures and how to properly apply Islam in said environments in accordance with the teachings of the Qur’an and authentic Sunnah; they are also able to convey the teachings in an articulate and clear manner.
Our curriculum is divided into the following faculties, theology, jurisprudence, Qur’anic studies, Prophetic traditions, History, personal-development, and Arabic.
Theology (Aqeedah) – The Islamic creed which consists of the pillars of faith.
Jurisprudence (Fiqh) – The legal rulings around acts of worship and social matters. Student will learn the rules and regulations when it comes to topics such as the prayer, zakat, fasting, business dealings, marriage, divorce, hajj, inheritance and others.
