About IZA ’Ālimiyyah

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 56 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.
