Our students love our commitment
to Qur'aan and approach to learning

Alhamdulilah it has been a wonderful journey to be in The Islamic Learning Institute as a student. I thank Allah for Sis Nadiyah and Sis Olaiya for the program. It has helped me to be more confident and to think with the Quran with the help of the discussion classes. I have completed the first level, now I am in the second level. I'm ready to start the Intro to Arabic Grammar in October. I recommend this program for brothers and sisters who want to learn Quranic Arabic.

As Salaam Alaikum dear believers.
These sisters are great teachers. They have patience and are willing to work with you. They have given me the courage and strength to want to learn more and more each day. This class is the best thing that ever happened to me. I have also connected with other sisters all over America and we have become one big happy family. Thank you Islamic Learning Institute for your service to me. They taught me how to want to elevate in Qur'anic Arabic and has shown me how it relates to life.
Basimah Id-Deen
I thank Allah everyday for this class and these sisters who have decided to put it together and open the door for us to not only learn the Arabic of the Quran but receive our blessings while doing so with each Arabic word we recite. I have been wanting to join for sometime now and finally did! I have learned so much and my understanding of the Quran has grown immensely MaShaAllah.  I pray Allah blesses them and all those involved with the Islamic Learning Institute to continue reaching as many people as they can.
