    Islamic Courses in Islamabad

    I am a 24 year old Pakistani resident of England, and have lived my life in this country acquiring 8 GCSE's and 2 A'Levels. I am interested in doing an Islamic course, preferably in Islamabad, Pakistan. I would like to move there once i have arranged a course for myself. But i am not having much luck as entry requirements are 3 A' Levels for Undergraduate Programmes:B.A.(Hons) in Islamic Studies at universities such as Islamic University in Islamabad, which is the course that i am interested in. I will be extremely grateful if anyone of you can help me in any way. Thank you.

    Wa'alaykum assalaam warahmatullaah,

    There are also other institutes in Islamabad aside from the University that offer some good Islamic courses. One such place is Al-Hudaa College for girls, although i'm not quite sure what level they teach and whether they touch BA.

    I'm afraid i don't have more information with me right now, but if you have any contacts in Islamabad, it may be worth while investigating Al-Hudaa College as i'm sure - masha'Allaah - that your qualifications will suffice insha'Allaah.

    wa faqakun'Allaah,

      ASalamu Alykum,

      I had an opportunity to attend Al-huda in Islamabad last summer!! I attended the summer camp there and mashaAllah i came out toally rejuvenated. Prior to joining al-huda all my family in Pakistan didn't want me to study there because they had heard all these crazy stuff about it and how its wahabi and blah blah. However, the more they said don't go to al-huda the more I wanted to go there just because everyone was making such a big out of it. Anyhow, the summer camp that i attended taught me tajweed, adab-e-zindinghi(manners in everyday life), Quran translation, memorizing short surahs, various lectures by speakers and it was a truly enlightening expierence. I was so pumped up when i came back to states that i recommended it to my older sister and now she is doing the one year course. The one year course obviously is more extensive, you actually learn arabic and read the Quran in more depth, tajweed is more emphasized
      ( proper pronunciation of Quran), hadith classes and so much More.. So look into al-huda. Oh yeah let me warn you since, i went to the summer camp and although they had coolers and it was very organized but it was hot and bathrooms were not very clean. The girls who lived in dorms (they are called hostels in pakistan) said that they had hard time adjusting. If you can stand all that stuff inshaAllah you will learn a lot. E-mail me if you want to find out the details and stuff.. Also, i would recommend if you really wanna learn classical arabic (Quranic arabic) i am sure they have a lot of classes in England as well. Like in states we have a lot of Deen intensives with awesome scholars and some great shaikhs from oversees. InshaAllah i am planning to attend a summer camp in michigan this summer at ALIM (American learning institute for Muslims) ( will be a very basic balanced summer camp about thigs like usul-ul-fiqh,seerah,Quran reading and stuff like that.So ahem for people like me who don't know anything its perfect.
      Also many of my friends have gone to England for like light intensives which is same as deen intensives in states and had a very educational experience. One more thing, it also depends on what you want to learn. Whether arabic, science of hadith, fiqh.. what specifically do you want to study, what do you want to focus on? Also how much time are you willing to dedicate to it? Like syria and morroco, mauratania,yemen still have some , very few amazing scholars and teachers and waAllah people who go study there have great openings and come back totally changed and in a much better state of Imaan and knowledge? And if you can't travel than finding people who are learned in you own community is very important? Anyways inshaAllah i'll be willing to help you!! Although my knowledge of institutions is very limited but fortunately, some of the people that i hang out with have some knowledge about stuff like this.
      May Allah(swt) make it easy for you and put baraka (spiritual blessing) in your efforts.
      JazakumAllahu khair


        Asalaam-O-Alaikum! Thankyou to you both for your help. I thoroughly appreciate it, believe me. Hasnain and Pakiice, im glad you have mentioned this institute, sounds like the stepping stone ive been seeking. Any yes, i'd love to email you and discuss such issues with you. I tink, the Islamic stage i am currently at (which is the 1st stage) any kind of knowledge would be beneficial and a big bonus for my family and my family. But im keen on acqyiring knowledge in general Islamic studies. I DO understand that this is a HUGE area, but to start off with, i really dont mind. Does this institute have a web address? email address? if not then their contact address? but i'll InshaAllah contact you for further information. I really appreciate your time and effort, that you have replied to this post. My email address is [email protected] - just in case u'd like to email me! Thank you once again for your help. Allah Hafiz.

          assalamu alaykum!

          Kurri, if you are interested there are quite regular lightstudy deen intensive programmes too in the UK. For the latest go to

          As the sister mentioned if you are really dedicated you can go to Mauritania, Yemen,or Syria and I am sure there are similar teachers in Indo-Pakistan too who teach in the Classical Tradition of Ahle Sunnah. I know that there is a brilliant Islamic University in Mubarakpur,India called Jamia Ashrafiyya but I am not sure if they teach women too although I don't see why not.


            Thank you Asif Bhai, ive taken a look at the website and InshaAllah i'll begin attending some whenever it's possible for me to do so. Do let me know of anymore such places/institutes/programmes around the West London area if you come to know of any. Much Appreciated. Allah Hafiz.

              Although i suppose it's not exactly West London, there are some Islamic classes held at the Muntada Centrein Parsons Green and also weekely classes in Wembley.

              Apart from these venues, on the other side of London, there are some - masha'allaah - excellent Tafseer, Hadeeth and Fiqh lessons held at Masjid-at-Tawheed in Leyton. The classes are run by the Shaikh, Dr. Suhaib Hassan. Fiqh is on Friday evenings, Tafseer on Saturday Evenings and Hadeeth on every other Sunday afternoon.

              If i here of anything in West London, i'll post it up Insha'allaah.
