Darul Ulum is an online Islamic institute, a continuation of the chain of sacred madrassas that have transferred the legacy of knowledge from one generation to another. It is headquartered in Deoband, the city which has hosted thousands of seekers of knowledge from different parts of the world for the past 150 years. This online institute was founded to preserve and deliver knowledge to men and women of all ages from all over the world. It follows a comprehensive, five-year Alim degree program covering the following subjects:
- Arabic Grammar (Syntax and Morphology)
- Arabic Literature (Speech, Composition, and Rhetoric)
- Islamic Theology ('Aqidah)
- Principles of Islamic Jurisprudence (Usul al-Fiqh)
- Fiqh (Jurisprudence)
- ‘Ulum al-Hadith (Sciences of Hadith Interpretation)
- Hadith (Prophetic Traditions)
- Usul al-Tafsir (Principles of Exegesis)
- Tafsir al-Quran (Exegesis)
- Sirah (Prophetic Biography)
A group of designated Islamic scholars has designed the curriculum to suit the schedules of even the busiest students. Imagine studying Alim course the traditional way right from your home under highly educated and designated scholars of Islam directly from the city of Deoband. Imagine joining them through live video conferencing and being among those who followed the command of the Prophet (PBUH): one who is present must convey (the knowledge) to one who is absent. Using an English, then Arabic medium, our five-year Islamic studies course is designed and developed to cater specifically to English-speaking students. Its target audience men and women who intended to study the Islamic sciences, but were prevented by their jobs or family responsibilities. This course is also beneficial for students in universities and colleges who desire to serve Islam, but whose ongoing education does not allow then to enroll in a full-time Islamic institute. It also targets those who cannot afford to travel abroad to study. Here is a chance for all of you to study Islam the traditional way—and later serve your community as an alim—right from home using the tools of modernity.
