Part-time Aalim Program

About the Course

The Part-Time Aalim program offered exclusively at Al-Ihsan is a new, rich, immersive program aimed toward young adults and older Muslims who seek to take a firm hold onto their Islamic education. Derived from traditional Alimiyyah courses, the part-time Aalim Program is a part-time, 3 day a week course, which aims to educate students in the intricacies of Islam, and looks to establish a firm knowledge base upon which students will continue to build.

The curriculum firstly focuses on Arabic syntax and morphology, then transitions to an in-depth study of Arabic key texts, on subjects such as Islamic jurisprudence, philosophy, literature, and ethics, while condensing the information to make it more accessible to the modern student and working adult.

This creates a rich, informative, 5-year program which grants students the tools and training to further their Islamic education even after their tenure has been completed, and to become a powerful, positive impact in their community.
