I'm thinking of doing an Aalim course in Makkah or Madinah. Does anyone have any recomendations, info, details etc. that may help me?
I don't know Arabic either; so i will need to attend a Darul-Uloom/University whcih teaches Arabic from English.
I know there is Ummul Qura in Makkah and Madinah University in Madinah, but they are hardcore Salafi, so learning Arabic there might be fine, but not doing Aalim studies.
I've heard of Madrassah Al-Sawlatiyyah which is in Makkah and is Alhamdulillah a Hanafi Darul-Uloom; but does anyone know if they facilitate for non-Arabs? Or do they just teach the Aalim studies for Arabs?
Also, any advice on visas, living expenses and conditions etc. Please share.
