I am very thankful to Allah and feel honoured to be given the opportunity to study the knowledge of Deen under the tutelage of well-qualified teachers in an environment which fosters academic and spiritual excellence. Moreover, I have been given the opportunity to continue my journey in the path of ‘Ilm at the luxury of continuing to pursue my post-secondary studies. Our madrasah has been structured to accommodate those of us who want to pursue post-secondary studies. As such, I was able to complete my degree without compromising on my Islamic studies. I have benefited academically and morally in the company of my esteemed teachers and fellow students.

I am amazed and thankful to Allah that despite the Alim Program being part-time, we have covered so much of the Arabic language and other literature that we can understand many verses of the Qur’an that we hear in salah. I feel that Allah allowed us to progress a lot in the little time that we gave as a result of the sincerity and seriousness of our teachers. They consistently gave us their valuable time to teach us and encouraged us to give as much of our free time as we could to learn. I would encourage anyone who wants to learn the Qur’an under proficient teachers alongside doing university and is willing to devote his energy to both studies to enroll in this program.

Before finding out about this program I was told I could choose to be an accountant or an Alim but not both. Alhamdulillah this program allowed me to complete my accounting degree, gain work experience as an accountant and at the same time become an Alim. I would highly recommend this program for those who are interested in pursuing a secular degree and at the same time become an Alim.
