Evening Aalim Course

‘With whomsoever Allah Ta’ala desires goodness, He grants them a firm understanding of Deen (Religion).’

(Statement of Prophet Muhammad Sallallahu Alayhi Wasallam)

The late evening Aalim Course at Green Oak Academy is designed to equip brothers aged 15+ with advanced Islamic knowledge.

The course is aimed at those brothers who normally work / study during the day and have a zeal to acquire the sacred knowledge of Islam; yet are unable to enrol at a full-time Darul Uloom.

This course can be immensely rewarding spiritually and academically with students able to develop an outlook in line with the authentic teachings of Islam, bring Islamic teachings into practice and Insha’allah become the means of guidance for others.

Our skilled Ulama are compassionate, caring and highly trained. Particular emphasis is placed upon moral and spiritual development alongside academic advancement.

The Aalim course will insha’allah be covered in approx 7 years, during which students will study the following to an advanced standard:

  • Classical Arabic Language
  • Urdu Language
  • Tajweed
  • Islamic History / Seerah
  • Commentary of Qur’an (Tafseer)
  • Statements of Prophet Muhammad Sallallahu Alayhi Wasallam (Hadeeth)
  • Islamic Jurisprudence (Fiqh)
  • Islamic Beliefs (Aqaaid)
