    Default Islaamic Universities Thread

    Bismillah, wa salaatu wa salaamu 'alaa Rasoolullah.

    As-salaamu 'alaykum wa rahmatullahi wa barakaatuhu.

    This thread is for brothers and sisters to get all the information they need regarding various Islaamic Universities. So the brothers and sisters can put forward any questions they need answering, and those who have the answer or the links could then provide them with a response inshaa-Allah.

    From what I have seen, finding information regarding studying overseas at one of the Islaamic Universities is scarce and very unorganised, thus inspiring students have a hard time finding answers to their queries and ultimately it often causes loss of morale and enthusiasm for the one seeking to traverse this noble path.

    I will start it off inshaa-Allah.

    If anybody is seeking to apply for the Islaamic University of Madinah, then here are the required documents:

    1. High School/GCSE/A-level Certificate.
    2. High School/GCSE/A-level Transcript.
    3. Testimony of Conduct.
    4. Birth Certificate.
    5. Passport.
    6. Identity Card (where applicable).
    7. A Color passport-sized (6x4) Photograph, which must be taken without glasses, against a white background, without covering the head.
    8. A medical letter or report, indicating the health of the applicants body, his sight and hearing, and lack of infectious diseases. It must be issued by a reliable medical centre.
    9. A letter of introduction/recommendation from an Islamic foundation in the applicants country of residence, or from two eminent Muslim individuals, testifying with regard to the applicant, his religious devotion and Islamic morals.
    10. Certificate of accepting Islam, for those who are not Muslim by birth (if available).
    Notices
    1. The applicant must scan his original documents, along with their translations, using a scanner, in order to display the documents in their original colors.
    2. The applicant must attach the Arabic translation of any document written in other than the Arabic language, preferably attested by a reliable organization.
    3. In case of an applicant being granted admission, the accepted student must bring his original documents, attested by the Saudi Embassy. If there is no Saudi Embassy in his country, he should have his documents attested by an authority recognized by the university.
    4. In the case of errors in the basic information found on the applicants original documents (such as name, date of birth, place of birth, etc.), the applicant must correct such mistakes with the responsible authorities before sending his application, since the University Council forbids the correction of this fundamental information after admission.

    Note: This website for the Islaamic University of Madinah; Al-Madinah International University, is the Malaysian branch and not the original branch in Saudi. This has been a common cause of confusion for many.

    Here is the website for Umm al-Qura University in Makkah; Umm Al-Qura University

    This website is run by UK citizens who are studying at the Islaamic University of Madinah and it is very helpful for potential applicants; Home - Madinah Student.

    Another website which gives information about various Islaamic Universities inside Saudi; Studying Islam Overseas - Study in Saudi Arabia's Universities.

    And here is a very popular University, especially for brothers from the West, in Egypt; Fajr Center for Teaching Arabic Language. Markaz al-Fajr is famous for its Arabic courses.

    Is it safe to study in Madina? I thought they had very madkhali tendencies? Or is it okay to study subjects other than al wala wal bara such as hadith ect ect? Or is Umm al Qurra better?
