Darul Ifta Birmingham was established in July 2006 by local scholars who felt that the Muslim community needed a platform to voice their religious questions in search of answers. Darul Ifta Birmingham was thus founded on a philosophy to facilitate a greater understanding and awareness of the precepts of Islam. Indeed in the Holy Qur’ān we are instructed to "Ask the people of knowledge if you do not know" (Sūrah Anbiyā' V7) in matters of religion. Darul Ifta Birmingham hopes to enrich understanding by providing an Islāmic insight into queries and concerns for people from all walks of life. The Prophet of Allāh is reported to have said: "Whomsoever Allāh wishes to show goodness he gives him understanding of the religion." (Ṣaḥīḥ Al Bukhārī & Ṣaḥīḥ Muslim) Darul Ifta Birmingham, by the grace of Almighty Allāh was formed for the Muslim community to deal with the concerns and issues of the wider Muslim society.
Darul Ilm Birmingham
Darul Ilm was established in August 2013 with the intention to produce the next generation of scholars and Imaams in the West for the Muslim Ummah.
The vision is to create scholars who will inspire a future society of role models who will make a difference in the world as we know it, firstly through their piety and secondly, through their knowledge.
Darul Ilm’s core objectives are to provide a structured educational approach to classical Islamic scholarship, offer a flexible learning environment and impart an educational experience that is at once intellectually rigorous and spiritually uplifting. To that end, our courses seek to educate students in the main disciplines of Islamic teaching including Arabic grammar, Morphology, Quran, Hadith, Law, Islamic History and Spirituality all in a manner that is easy to comprehend and practical to implement in one’s life. Our classes also highlight the importance of using sacred knowledge as a means of increasing our connection with Allah and furthering our spiritual development.
Darul Ilm offers the Full-time and Part-time Alim & Alimah class in our premises which is based in Birmingham, but also provides these courses online via the innovative system of Wiziq.
Darul Ilm offers an online format, which means that all you need is an internet connection and a computer, to attend a class from anywhere in the world. While the practice of learning in an actual physical classroom has been the traditional method for centuries and will probably go on until the end of time, a lot can be achieved over the internet. We attempt to duplicate the classroom experience as much as possible in a virtual setting. The classroom experience is brought inside your home through your technology device. The availability of a qualified Islamic scholar guiding you in an online class ensures that the student-teacher relationship which is fundamental in Islamic learning is maintained. Live sessions and other communication platforms facilitate interaction and allow students to ask questions.
We request all brothers and sisters to pray for the success of the institution and that May Allah accept our humble efforts in the Hereafter.
