Alim Course Urdu

A 6-year program for serious students who, in addition to learning the translation and commentary of the entire Qur’an, wish to learn classical Arabic and study Arabic texts of tafsir, hadith, fiqh, usul, and other disciplines that have been traditionally taught in the Alim course. This course is a two-part program. Admission is initially offered into the first part, which lasts 3 years. Based on academic achievement, commitment, and dedication to spiritual development, students will be selected for admission into the second part, which lasts 3 additional years.

Subjects Taught:



Islamic Law

Islamic Jurisprudence

Arabic Language and Grammar


The Alim Program is principally designed for students who wish to study the Islamic sciences in-depth, attain reading fluency in classical Arabic, and are motivated to commit about 9 hours per week.

The program covers the traditional curriculum of the ‘Alim course’, and provides a firm and broad basis in all of the main disciplines of classical Islamic scholarship:

Arabic language and its various sciences, Commentary of the entire Qur’an, Hadith, Islamic Law (Fiqh), Principles of Legal Methodology (Usul al-Fiqh), Beliefs (Aqeedah), Seerah, Shamail, Contemporary Issues, and Islamic Spirituality.

Students will be moved slowly to Arabic reading fluency so that they can study the different disciplines in the language of the scholars. This will typically involve covering various classical Arabic manuals in each Islamic discipline, thereby giving students a taste of the rich academic tradition.

At Darul Uloom Al Islamia, the goal of education is to educate the heart by means of taʿlīm (Islamic knowledge), tazkiya (purification of the soul) and tarbiya (Islamic moral training). This heart should get illuminated with the Sunnah feelings of ikhlas (purity), taqwa (God consciousness) and ihsan (excellence in worship), in order for an individual to qualify as an Alim. These can only be obtained through live interaction and by keeping company of the senior scholars and Shuyukh of our Ummah. As the program progresses, we will keep encouraging students to develop their spirituality while identifying opportunities for them to do so.
