“A lot of people talk about Imam Bukhari, they narrate from Imam Bukhari, they know his book to be the most authentic but they don’t really appreciate the effort, thought, and depth of Imam Bukhari in his Sahih. After only one day, our students and staff here at Bayyinah Institute have developed a profound appreciation […]

“Prior to attending, I like many Muslims was aware of the importance and centrality of Sahih al-Bukhari to Sunni Islam and the great effort Imam Bukhari put in to compile this monumental work. But beyond that I had very little knowledge about the inner workings and methodology employed by the Imam. The course was simply […]

“The Introduction to Sahih Al-Bukhari was my first ever course with Sheikh Akram. Prior to this course I did not know much about the Sheikh nor of Cambridge Islamic Sciences. The experience of this was something truly unique and one I have rarely come across. I have been to a number of courses on various […]

The two days aimed to convince us how intelligent, dedicated and vigorous he was and how we are indebted to him for his works.

“The classes are uncovering treasures which is only known if you are willing to sacrifice time & money to learn from Dr Mohammad Akram Nadwi.  You will have a very different understanding of Islamic history after observing a wealth of knowledge not found commonly in the textbooks.”

“I truly think that this course by Shaykh Akram and Cambridge Islamic College is the best part time Arabic course available. Listening to Shaykh Akram speak and observing his etiquettes makes me think of the Sunnah, there are very few people like this, who have such a love for the ummah and the deen and […]

“I have studied Arabic with Shaykh Akram for many years. I find the CIC classes beneficial for revision mainly. What is great is that I go to learn Arabic but return with having also learnt important lessons related to Hadith, Tafsir and general motivating gems. Being an online student I thought I would miss out […]

“After only ten weeks of the Cambridge Islamic College (CIC) diploma in Arabic and Islamic studies I am able to see a real difference in my own understanding of Arabic, Arabic text has gone from being a jumble of letters to actual words and sentences, and I can even translate some! I can’t compare this […]

Then I decided  to attend anyway with the intention of at least revising my Islamic studies. Also I was not sure how I could follow the course as English […]
