A word from
the Managing Director

being diminished in any respect on that account." [Muslim]

Read in the name of your Lord who created


Created man, out of a (mere) clot of congealed blood
Read, and your Lord is the most Generous
Who taught by the pen
Taught man that which he knew not.
[Quran 96:1-5]

The objec ve was to bring together the professionalism and


quality assurance of leading western educa onal
establishments with the teaching curricula of the leading
Islamic Universi es. We believe that we have achieved the
intended objec ve of producing a unique Islamic curriculum
in the English language integra ng the best of both
worlds, and we hope that it is of benet to all those who
thread the path of knowledge through it.

MIU is a project close to my heart and is one that I have


contemplated over for many years. Every Muslim desires to
study the Science of Islam but not everyone has the ability to
travel abroad to study for prolonged periods of me. Family
responsibili es, work commitments are normally a major
obstacle for most people.

The Prophet ( ) said to 'Ali (May Allah be


pleased with him),
"By Allah, if a single person is guided by Allah through
you, it
will be be er for you than a whole lot of red camels."
[Al-Bukhari and Muslim]

The Messenger of Allah ( ) said,

I am delighted that you are considering studying with MIU


and I truly believe that if you do, then you will have made a
very wise decision. A great deal of work has gone into
establishing MIU that you see today, combing tradi on with
innova on, complemen ng outstanding teaching and
learning with the very best facili es in beau ful se ngs
to oer what is, I believe, one of the best environments to
study.

"When a man dies, his deeds come to an end except for


three
things: Sadaqah Jariyah (ceaseless charity); a knowledge
which
is benecial, or a virtuous descendant who prays for him
(for
the deceased)." [Muslim]
Upon discussion with Sheikh Zulker Ibrahim, I was asked to
assist in providing a solu on to this problem. A er much
thought and contempla on I agreed to assist with
establishing a Muslim educa onal establishment of learning
catering for the needs of all those who are not able to travel
to Muslim lands and study in Islamic ins tu ons.
The Messenger of Allah ( ) said,
"He who calls others to follow the Right Guidance will
have a reward
equal to the reward of those who follow him, without
their reward

I am delighted that you are considering studying with MIU


and I truly believe that if you do, then you will have made a
very wise decision. A great deal of work has gone into
establishing MIU that you see today, combing tradi on with
innova on, complemen ng outstanding
teaching and learning with the very best facili es in
beau ful se ngs to oer what is, I believe, one of the best
environments to study.
Everything we do at MIU is undertaken with our learners as
the primary focus, and so the safe suppor ve environment
we have carefully nurtured is geared around helping you
achieve your goals
and making the best investment possible in your future. Im

proud to be part of such a progressive place and I hope you


will join us on our con nuing journey so that we can all
grow and achieve our poten al together.

The Dean of Academic Aairs


of MIU: Zulker Ibrahim

The Messenger of Allah ( ) said,


"Allah makes the way to Jannah easy for him who treads
the
path in search of knowledge." [Muslim]
My vision is for MIU to be an excellent teaching-led
ins tu on that,through the commitment and engagement
of our sta, jus es the investment that students and
others make by engaging with us. We, the MIU, will make a
dierence for and by our students and graduates. They will
be known and respected by all members of society for the
me and dedica on that they have shown to learn and then
disseminate the religion of Islam. A teaching-led ins tu on
must have a deep and real commitment to knowledge
genera on and exchange through scholarship and
research, in its broadest sense, which underpins the
curriculum. I envision an educa onal establishment that
adheres to OFQUAL and Ofsted requirements, with
qualica ons approved and cer ed by leading Awarding
Bodies, standards that meet interna onal requirements
and a team of qualied teachers.
I want MIU to be an award-winning university that relishes
and meets the challenges of compe on. I want us to
respond to compe on with determina on, commitment
and a desire to make a real dierence. We must be talked
about and recognised for what we do and the dierence we
make. We must be inspired and inspiring so that we can
build the condence and ability of our students and
customers so that they and we can create a real dierence
for the benet of society, the economy and our
communi es. I want us to strengthen and grow our many
local, na onal and interna onal partnerships so that, as a
group of like-minded individuals and ins tu ons,
par cipa on is widened and even greater opportuni es
are created for people from all walks of life to experience
the transforma ve power of higher educa on. The MIU
approach to educa on means more students, studying in a
way, in a place and at a pace that suits their needs. Our
approach is underpinned by the quality and relevance of
the student experience whether it be on campus, at home,
in the workplace, at a partner ins tu on or elsewhere.

A word from the Dean of Academic Aairs
All praise is due to Allah, Who teacheth by the pen, Teacheth
man that which he knew not, May the praise and peace of
Allah descend upon the noblest of messengers, the best
teacher that the universe has ever known, Mohammed the
son of Abdullah, and upon all his family and
companions.

During my many years of involvement with both Islamic


Educa on and Dawah I have come to the realiza on that
there is an intrinsic need for the dissemina on of the Islamic
Sciences in the English medium. I approached various Ulema
with this dilemma, a er airing my concerns to some of the
worlds leading Islamic scholars they concluded that it is
incumbent that an ins tute is established to cater for these
needs and it is incumbent upon you to ini ate this task. The
ins tu on should have its roots rmly grounded in the city
of The Prophet upon him be peace, Madinatun-anNabawiyyah, and its branches should be in the major ci es
of the west.
With the above in mind I approached one of the worlds
leading educa onalists, Arshad Ashraf who agreed to assist

me in my proposal. We formed a team consis ng of scholars


and educa onalists that are bona d experts in their
respec ve elds to ini ate the Madinah Islamic University
(MIU). Our aim is to use merge the Islamic Sciences with the
most prominent theories of pedagogy and andragogy. With
a view to surpassing the quality standards of the worlds
premier educa onal establishments we undertake this
magnanimous endeavor.
A university is an ins tu on that creates and communicates
knowledge and ideas, giving its students and sta the
opportunity to build new and be er futures for themselves
and others. These responsibili es are at the heart of MIUs
mission, and have founda ons and a life beyond any single
strategic plan. The circumstances of our me and our place
aect what is possible. This is a me when global boundaries
to educa on and research are dissolving and when the
movement of people is unprecedented.
My responsibility is to lead the University and dene its
academic direc on and strategy and for ensuring that MIU
is well managed. It is my great pleasure to extend a very
warm welcome to MIU on behalf of the Managing Directors
Oce. I hope that I am able to provide a good introduc on
to the University and the work we do in this Oce.
MIU will be global in the way it constructs its educa on and
research, in the opportuni es it oers students and sta,
and by having a presence in selected ci es across the globe.
Our degree programmes are designed to reect the diverse
needs of our students, the society we live in and the world of
work, whilst retaining academic rigour. We are a rac ng
highly talented applicants whilst retaining our entry
standards. We are collabora ng with a number of
universi es across the globe to harness some of the worlds
most advanced thinking inorder to establish MIU as a world
leader in Islamic educa on.
Finally, my sincere thanks goes to those individuals and
organisa ons who have helped us to fund this ambi ous
programme. We look forward to welcoming you to the
University and the outstanding educa onal programmes
that we have developed.

We hope that we will be among the pioneers in this eld


with the par cipa on of students who share the great
ambi on that we are seeking to achieve, asking Allah
Almighty to crown these eorts with support and success.
Are those who know equal to those who do not know?"
