The Two-Year Introductory Course

The aim of this course is to provide the student with the level of proficiency in the Arabic language required to access the various disciplines, and to give him a sound introduction to each of the fundamental disciplines. Since any student who has successfully completed this course will have invariably gained a sound theoretical basis of the basic functions and duties of an Imām it has also acquired the title of "The Imāmah Course". As such upon request an Imāmah certificate is issued to those who do not wish to progress beyond this point. We recommend this course to those individuals who cannot devote themselves to six years of study yet want to gain an authentic understanding of the basics of Higher Islamic Learning.
