English Classical Islamic Learning


Program Description

English Classical Islamic Learning (ECIL) is a Pre-‘Alim’ course, designed to introduce men to the classical methodology of Islamic knowledge and scholarship through a modern educational approach. The philosophy of the course is distinct in its embrace of the entire academic tradition of the Ahl-al Sunnah wal-Jama’ah with respect for all scholars of TafsirHadithFiqh, and Usul al-fiqh. Moreover, ECIL highlights the importance of spiritual purification (tazkiyah) and inner reform (islah). We expect our students to not only learn the knowledge of the Deen of Islam but also the feelings and haqeeqah of the knowledge.

The last one to two years of the course must be performed live, in-person, onsite in one of our recommended institutions in the UK or South Africa, for students who have shown strong academic standing.

Admissions for ECIL program for academic year 2018-19 are closed.

Once registrations open, the registration form shall be available here.
