The Part-Time Islamic Studies program is a newly designed course for Muslims who desire guidance for living as a Muslim. It covers the basic essentials in the sciences of Islam. Class schedule is tailored for those who cannot attend full-time classes.
In these monthly classes, you’ll do weekend intensives – each covers a Beginners text of each science. Classes are taught by Shaykh Muhammad al-Ninowy and other visiting scholars of the Islamic Studies Degree Program.
Upon completing this course, we aim for students to:
- Gain a comprehensive understanding of the principles of the faith
- Be able to apply the acquired knowledge in case-studies/relevant situations
- Live more confident Islamic lifestyles and be able to deal with contemporary issues with clear guidance
- You’ll also receive a certificate and may qualify for credit towards the Associate & Bachelor of Arts degrees
How the class will work
Students will have reading assignments, along with some uizzes and exams. More information on this TBA.
Whether on-site or online, students are expected to attend each class session, though they are allowed 2 excused absences. If a student misses class due to legitimate need or excuse, video recordings will be made available and they have up to 1 month to catch up on the material missed that weekend.
Disclaimer: If students would like to record lectures in-class for pseronal use, to review class material at home, they may use a phone or other audio recorder to do so, but copying & distributing ANY recordings (video or audio) is prohibited. It is the intellectual property of Madina Institute.
Please understand that Madina Institute relies on registered, paying students to financially sustain our operations. If one signs up for these classes, they are accepting an Amana (sacred trust) to not distribute any recordings outside of the class, for in doing so they are sinning against Allah and betraying that trust.

- Required Materials: Students should bring a laptop or tablet to class in order to read/go through the PDF texts in class, or at least have a printed copy of the text.
- Build Rapport: If you find that you have trouble keeping up with assignments or other aspects of the course, be sure to let the instructor know as early as possible. Be proactive in communicating with your teacher when difficulties arise so that they can help you find a solution.
- Commit to Integrity: As a student in this course and Institute, you are expected to maintain a high degree of professionalism, commitment to learning and participation in the class, as well as integrity in & out of the classroom.
- Academic Dishonesty:
- Academic dishonesty includes things such as cheating, inventing false information or citations, plagiarism, and helping someone else commit an act of academic dishonesty.
- Course Instructors have the initial responsibility of detecting and dealing with academic dishonesty, though students should report anything to the instructor if they have witnessed such behaviors. In such an instance, the instructor will discuss the matter with the students involved, and should have reasonable evidence of academic dishonesty. However, if circumstances prevent consultation with the student(s), instructors may take whatever action they deem appropriate (subject to student appeal).
- Instructors who are convinced by the evidence that a student is guilty of academic dishonesty shall assign an appropriate academic penalty. If the instructors believe the dishonesty reflects on the student’s grade may be adversely affected.
- The administrator shall maintain an Academic Dishonesty File of all cases of dishonesty with the appropriate documentation.
