Al Balāgh Online ʿĀlimiyyah Programme

Exclusive For Sisters

Al Balāgh Online ʿĀlimiyyah Programme (Sisters)

About the Programme

Al Balāgh Online ʿĀlimiyyah Programme, based on the traditional Dars-e-Nizāmi syllabus, is designed specifically and exclusively for female professionals, university student graduates, academics and those who have approximately three years experience in any daʿwah, charity or Islamic social organisation. The programme seeks to empower Muslim sisters around the world in the field of Islamic Scholarship. The purpose is to bridge the current gap that exists between traditional Muslim scholars and contemporary academics and professionals, as well as the gap that exists between classical Islamic sciences and contemporary advanced academic studies and scientific research.

This programme is completely online, divided into four academic levels covering 15 essential traditional Islamic sciences at an advanced level.

The programme is unique in the sense that it will incorporate relevant contemporary Islamic literature coupled with relevant contemporary academic social, historical philosophical and scientific studies. The course will be delivered using a personal developmental, unique skills-focused approach which will be guided through one-to-one mentorship.

This advanced specialist programme will train female academics, professionals and passionate learners to achieve an in-depth grasp and understanding of the dynamic nature of the Islamic sciences, with their associated theological and jurisprudential roots, in handling issues related to modern sciences. The course will have an initial Ḥanafī school focus but will require scholars to be competent enough to be able to provide general opinions from all sunnī schools of thought in the more advanced years. This is an excellent opportunity for aspiring female scholars to be important drivers and enablers in the synergy of the Islamic tradition with modern sciences via exclusive sessions for sisters only. Graduates will have an excellent opportunity to gain a significant advantage in their future prospects having graduated with shahādah (certification) and ijāza (authorisation) in several Islamic disciplines and classical texts from qualified traditional and renowned Muslim scholars and academics. They will be part of the international Muslim network of ʿUlama working in the domain of merging Islamic tradition with modern sciences.

Programme Overview

This unique Online Al Balāgh ʿĀlimiyyah Programme for sisters has been developed specifically for those sisters who have always had the passion for learning traditional Islamic sciences under the tutelage of experienced teachers and Muslim scholars, but not had the opportunity. The course has been designed in a modular format to cater for your pace and brought to you in the comfort of your own home and convenience. The content of the course will address the important need to merge knowledge of the traditional Islamic sciences, which offers a centuries-old rich intellectual tradition, with current modern-day sciences and the essential need for the role of females in the field of Islamic scholarship. Universities can offer valuable, diverse academic approaches to some of these disciplines about Islam. However, they cannot replace an essential centuries-old tradition where knowledge is parted, coupled with spiritual and personal development. This spiritual development is one that transcends the study of books and seeks to connect with the Creator to produce an Islamic epistemological approach which is quite different to the approach found in western institutes of learning. To be part of this spiritual chain of knowledge, extending from one’s teachers all the way to our noble Prophet (PBUH) is something that only a selected few get the opportunity to experience. A humbling experience through a process that requires students to sit at the feet of traditional scholars of knowledge to gain the wisdom of classical texts through an approach that has been passed down successive generations.

Explore The Wealth of Traditional Islamic Sciences

The traditional Islamic sciences have always been growing disciplines in response to diverse sociopolitical, philosophical and scientific challenges. A deeper analysis of Islamic normative positions related to a diverse range of important modern issues like logic, metaphysics, artificial intelligence, evolution, Islam and politics, genetics, Islamic psychology and societal ethics in a rapidly changing world, is proving quite challenging and crossing the lines of enquiry which question concepts we have never explored before or ever thought possible. There have been many attempts by Muslim scholars to address various areas of these challenges and their application to new cases. However, these Islamic disciplines have had to grow both horizontally and vertically to the degree that our current application of the wealth of our Islamic tradition to new and challenging issues is unfortunately still in its prime stages. There are immense works of classical Muslim scholars which require intense study with the prospect of it benefiting future generations. Some of these works are in manuscript form, and others remain unread except by a few.

Addressing The Contemporary Issues

The horizontal growth is one which requires us to go back to the sources of our classical theology, substantive law, jurisprudence and ethics and tease out the nuances and essential shariʿ principles that provide the guidance and framework to allow Islamic responses to technical questions. This requires Muslim scholars to have expertise in broader areas of theology, ʿilm al-kalām, tafsīr, ḥadīth, fiqh, language and rhetoric and tārīkh. The vertical growth is where these disciplines have now diversified beyond just classical text, and into many other specialties making it intersect with sciences such as philosophy, epistemology, metaphysics, anthropology, politics and other areas of humanities and social sciences. To meet these challenges requires preparation of Muslim scholars who have expert academic background knowledge of these sciences and the skill-set to work closely with others embracing both good leadership qualities and aptitude to deliver the Islamic response that is both appropriate and informed through a multidisciplinary approach.

Become One of the Heirs of the Prophet (PBUH) Under the Guidance of Traditional Scholars

The most important aspect of the whole programme will ensure that the beneficial traditional element of madrasa learning is maintained as much as possible. This is to be achieved by ensuring that all our main scholars have been trained and have gone through robust teaching under the tutelage of their teachers through a successive chain of traditional learning that extends to the Prophet (PBUH). The approach unique to our madāris requires students to form an important relationship with their scholars and teachers, which is both academic and essential for spiritual and personal development. This traditional approach will be woven throughout the syllabus content and delivery style so that students have a virtual madrasa experience. This is an exciting opportunity for students to learn, develop and connect to a line of traditional ʿulama who have a chain of learning all the way to our beloved Prophet (PBUH). After successful completion of this programme, students will receive formal ijāza (authorization) and ʿAlimiyyah Sanad enabling them to be included amongst the heirs of the prophets. The goal is to produce Muslim scholars who can contribute to their areas of expertise confidently, to bring about a meaningful impact and to respond to contemporary challenges.

Programme Aims & Objectives

The Key Objectives of this Program are:
