Maryam Institute is a non-commercial, non-political educational institute for women dedicated to Islamic learning and spirituality. Its 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 learning including Arabic language, Quran, Hadith, Law, Islamic History and Spirituality, as well as offer Islamic knowledge on contemporary and lifestyle issues pertinent to women – 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 (swt) and furthering our spiritual development.
All programs at Maryam Institute draw upon the rich scholarly tradition based on the Quran and the Sunnah as understood by the Sahabah (Companions) and the Salaf Saliheen (Pious Predecessors), with a respect for all scholars of the Ahl al-Sunnah wal Jama’ah. In addition, our course materials are also informed by current research in modern sciences and are taught using a modern educational approach, making Maryam Institute distinct in its embrace of tradition and technology.
All courses are offered free of charge.
