19-01-2006, 12:17 AM
As salaamu alaykum.
I was wondering if any of you had any info regarding the quality of instruction imparted at Darululoom London (http://www.darululoomlondon.co.uk/)?
I have a younger relative that we would like to send to Darululoom somewhere in the Western World (for certain personal reasons) and came across this one online, but since I have not heard much about it, I am wondering about how good it is.
Furthermore, since I myself am not an Alim and have not completed the full Darse Nizami, nor even an Alim course, I don't think that I would be qualified to evaluate their syllabus, so if some of the Ulema that we have on this forum could evaluate their syllabus (which can be found at http://www.darululoomlondon.co.uk/syllabus.htm) insha'allah, I would appreciate it.

Darul-Uloom was established in 1989 and was founded by (Hadrat) Mufti Mustafa (Sahib). As a distinguished scholar of Islam he willingly sacrificed his time and effort to help the younger Muslim generation.
With little money and funding Mufti Mustafa ((sahib) bought two properties in forest gate London with the intention of establishing an Islamic institute. This was the first step towards improving the Muslim Ummah (nation) in London. Firstly with the help of Allah and through the support of devoted Muslim parents, within a scope of a year Darul-Uloom attracted 40 young enthusiastic students.
As with the tight financial situation, the students had to also bear hardships and difficulties, but they remained firm on their sincere zeal for knowledge. As a determined person Mufti Mustafa (Sahib) tolerated all ordeals and made an earnest effort to improve Darul-Uloom as a whole.
With in a short period of time Mufti Mustifa (Sahib) collected a sufficient amount of funding to move a step ahead. In early 1994 Mufti Mustafa (Sahib) paid a visit to Co-ed bell hostel. In the outer suburbs of London this small town Chislehurst, was to produce the foundation of the new Darul-Uloom. To achieve this goal was not an easy task. Despite all this, Mufti Mustafa (Sahib) never lost confidence and carried on striving. Once again with the infinite grace of Allah and the great support of local Muslims, the institute was bought.

As far as I know I believe they teach pretty much the same syllabus, however one should be aware the results and outcome all depends on the teachers and the students.
