All praise is due to Allah, the entirely merciful, the especially merciful. May the Peace and Blessings of Almighty Allah be upon the Noble Messenger, His Households, Companions and those who followed his path till Akhirah.
We are all proud to be associated with this noble Deen, Islam. However, acquiring the requisite and basic knowledge of this Deen has always been a challenge. Several concerns were reported especially from young and promising Muslim youths, regretting their unfortunate negligence in learning fundamentals of their faith since childhood.
There are many Muslim ex-pats, professionals and students with no proper guidance on matters concerning their Deen both at home and abroad. While some take the burden of self-learning approach, the most common medium of learning Shari’a among these ambitious youths, is the random online and social media lectures and public speeches, with no proper structure that assists and guides their understanding of the Deen. The undeniable fact is that knowledge goes hand-in-hand with faith, thus, the knowledge of one’s Deen is an essential and integral part of his Iman.
Allah Subhanahu wa ta’ala Says: (The ranks of those who have believed among you shall be elevated by Allah; those who have knowledge) Quran. 58:11.
Rasulullah صلى الله عليه وسلم also says: “Whom so ever embarks on the path of seeking knowledge, Allah shall (for that effort) grant him a smooth passage to the Heavens”At–tirmidhi ( sacred knowledge 2682).
Driving from the spirit of these inspiring Nusus and their likes, and to address the issues presented above, Az-Zaituna Academy (AZAC) was introduced. AZAC is an online Diploma and Certificate programme specialized in teaching Islamic and Arabic Studies using a collaborative, critical and efficient method, empowered by our able and dynamic instructors who have their specializations in various areas of Islamic and Arabic sciences and scholarship.
