The 'Ālimiyyah curriculum is a program of study focused on the Islamic sciences, with the goal of producing scholars and leaders who are proficient in these subjects and who have the professional skills necessary to serve, guide, and lead the Muslim community. This curriculum is designed to provide students with a deep understanding of subjects such as Tafsīr (Qur'anic exegesis), Ḥadīth (sayings and actions of the Prophet Muhammad), and Fiqh (Islamic law and jurisprudence), as well as other related disciplines.
The IZA ’Ālimiyyah Course was designed from the traditional 'Darse Nizami' course catering to the Muslim community of U.K. Our course is one of the few Alimiyyah courses in UK taught in the English medium from Year 1 till Year 7. Through the grace and mercy of Allāh ﷻ to date we have produced 63 Alimiyyah graduates with the first graduation taking place in 2014, currently we have over 70 students studying this course.
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.
In addition to imparting knowledge and skills, the 'Ālimiyyah curriculum is also intended to cultivate qualities such as critical thinking, problem-solving, and leadership in its students. By providing students with the tools they need to understand and interpret the Islamic tradition, as well as the ability to apply these teachings to contemporary challenges and issues, the 'Ālimiyyah curriculum aims to produce well-rounded and competent scholars and leaders who are equipped to serve the Muslim community with excellence.
The course is taught in the English medium by Scholars (Ulama) who have graduated from various seminaries (including Darul Uloom Al Arabiya Al Islamiya, Dewsbury, Jamiatul Ilm Wal Huda, and India), the course is intensive in its content, and requires motivation and a keen zeal for knowledge.
