Student Testimonials

“It was a privilege to be part of this programme. Not only do I have now a much clearer and more developed understanding of the Shi’a positions but I also appreciated our lecturer’s ability to make things clear with which I had struggled in the past, e.g. getting to grips with Ibn Arabi and distinguishing the finer points between Asharite and Mutazilite theology. One cannot overestimate the complexity of the task that he tackled and achieved.”

Chris Hewer


“Very enjoyable, have loved the academic approach and detailed analysis and research presented. I am very grateful to be able to attend the course. I have found the course comparable to a university approach. All the teachers are great and I am grateful to have been able to benefit from them.”

Muhammad-Jawad al-Zakiy


“Our teacher has a unique style of teaching Arabic, and one that I found extremely effective. I really enjoyed the Arabic classes.”

Mubina Virjee


“Arabic was really inspiring and the additional grammatical points our teacher raised were also of benefit as I immediately was able to apply them when reciting du’as and ayaat of the Qur’an. His method was very flexible and if he noticed a weakness in one area of the class, he would quickly adjust and shift focus so we could address it. The Sheikh is very pleasant in general, very humble.”

The Admins were very professional and courteous too and especially very Prompt in responding to the online discussion forums. Especially the flexibility of the Study time is Perfect for Working Professionals and Parents who have to manage time between study and work/family. The courses are always available before hand which gives us plenty amount of time to refer to the Videos and PDF’s at our convenience and pace.
