About Us

Imam Zakariya Academy is an educational institute based in the heart of East London and was initiated in 2003 with one of the first Islamic primary schools for Muslims in the East London area. Since then, it has gone from strength to strength by providing various courses for the Muslim community.

One of the flagship courses is the Alimiyyah course, run over seven years in the evening making it possible for working adults and college or university students, this is a course traditionally run-in full-time settings like a Darul Uloom and predominantly taught in Urdu, however at IZA the course is designed to suit the needs for the Muslim community living in the west, therefore the course is taught in the English medium.
