At Jamea Al Kauthar, we provide our students with both Islamic and secular education.
The Islamic Theology course is condensed into 5/6 years (subject to student’s proficiency in Urdu and basic general Islamic knowledge). Both Urdu and Arabic languages are studied throughout the first three years due to majority of Islamic literature being written in these languages.
The final two years consist of an intense study of the Prophet’s (PBUH) traditions, along with the study of Islamic Jurisprudence and Tafseer (commentary of the Qur’an)
Alhamdulillah, over the past twenty years, 473 students have graduated as Aalimas (Islamic scholars).
