Alimiyyah Info


The aim of the Alimiyyah curriculum is to produce Ulama (scholars) and leaders who are competent in the Islamic sciences such as Tafseer, Hadeeth, Fiqh and other sciences possessing the professional skills necessary to serve, guide and lead the Muslim community with excellence. In addition to imparting knowledge and skills, the curriculum, and the environment within which it is taught is designed to produce scholars whose scholarship is marked by tradition, intelligence, piety, responsibility, and generosity of spirit, ensuring that we are not simply producing academics and professionals seeking a career but are reproducing the selfless spirit that has always been so characteristic of Islamic scholarship.


The course consists of seven years, with emphasis given to learning Arabic syntax (Nahw) and Morphology (Sarf) in particular in the first two years.


Taught in the English medium by Ulama who have graduated from various Darul Ulooms (including Bury, Dewsbury, Blackburn and India), the course is intensive in its content, and requires motivation and a keen zeal for knowledge
