Alhamdulillah, after the immense success of our Aalimah course that was initially introduced as optional to our girls' school students as well as being made accessible to external students, we now have re-developed the course to especially cater for the needs of girls over 16 years of age. And keeping in mind the different circumstances of students at this age, we have also provided a few options in the course structure, timings and duration.

The Aalimah Studies programmes on offer are as follows:

  •  Part-time Aalimah Studies (7:30am - 10:00am on Mon-Thur)

  •  Full-time Aalimah Studies (7:30am - 11:45am on Mon-Thur)

  •  Full-time Aalimah Studies with A-levels (7:30am - 4:30pm on Mon-Thur & 8:00am - 1:00pm on Fri)

  •  Concise (2 year) Aalimah Course (7:30am - 11:45am on Mon-Thur)

We have developed and designed a new and comprehensive cover for all units of the Aalimah course. All Aalimah Studies programmes will be conducted in Arabic/English. The detailed syllabus for part-time students is as follows:

  P1 (7:30-8:00) P2 (8:00-8:30) P3 (8:30-9:00) P4 (9:00-9:30) P5 (9:30-10:00)

For the final two years (years 6 & 7) of the Aalimah course, students will be required to attend full-time (7:30 - 11:45) as the advanced and intensive level of study requires further commitment. Texts to be taught in these years are as follows:

Students in both of the above programmes will also be given a list of recommended reading titles, which the students will have to critically read independently. This is to enhance the academic & critical reading skills in the students. Though these readings will assume the form of an extra-curricular activity, students will be assessed in these texts also. The list of recommended reading texts will be provided here shortly.

Furthermore and as mentioned above, we have also designed a concise (2 year) intensive course for those students who are unable to complete the entire six-seven years course. This course will comprise of various texts taught in the longer version of the course, and hence, will be very intensive and demanding. The syllabus for this course is as follows:

  Year 1 Year 2

P2 Zaad-ut-Talibeen Mukhtasar al-Qudoori (Ibaadaat - selected chapters)
