You can now benefit from studying under a sheikh without leaving your home!

Instead of focusing on the highest number of students or making Islamic knowledge a “fun-and-games” type endeavor, in the Live Bachelor Program we train a small group of high-quality students of knowledge who could then become the leaders of their communities and in turn spread the knowledge of Islam even further.

Our Live Bachelor program is conducted live onsite as well as online by Sheikh Dr. ‘Isam Rajab and Dr. Ibrahim Dremali. Student will benefit from the live interaction with their instructor in class, while having the convenience of studying through the internet.

A student can choose to attend Weekend or Weekday (Tuesday and Wednesday) classes. All classes start at 9:30 am CST and finish 2:30 pm CST inshallah. Attendance will be mandatory and registered. Students are expected to participate, hand in homework, prepare for classes and study the material. There will be active discussion during classes to apply the knowledge to modern situations.
