The Alimah 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 ‘Alimah 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 Maryam Institute, 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 Alimah.
