Critical Thinkers Scholarship

Say salaam to your instructors

The Qur’an Institute was set up by Ustadh Moinul Abu Hamza and his wife Ustadha Nasima Umm Hamza, both Alim and Alimah in their own right. They are a husband and wife team of activists and students of knowledge who made it their mission to make learning of the Arabic language and the classical texts accessible to the Muslim community.

Ustadh Moinul abu Hamza

Founder / Head Instructor

Moinul Abu Hamza is the founder of The Quran Institute and a teacher in Tafsir Studies. He is an active Dawa carrier, writer and Khateeb in London. He is currently pursuing his Iftaa qualification and training to be a jurisconsult (Mufti) under the tutelage of Mufti Tosir of Darul Iftaa Birmingham. He began his studies in the UK and continued his studies in Arabic, Tafseer and sharh of hadeeth and Tajweed in Egypt.

He has achieved an Alimiyyiah Qualification under the tutelage of Sheikh Akram Nadwi in Al-Salaam Institute and is currently teaching The Arabic Renaissance Course at The London Muslim Centre.

Additional information about the ‘Alimiyyah

The Shahada al-‘Alimiyyah has been translated as ‘Licence in Islamic Scholarship’ and is the most distinguished accolade awarded by the Institute. Students will spend a minimum of two years under the tutelage of Shaykh Mohammad Akram Nadwi perfecting their studies in the Islamic Sciences. After the two years, students will be entitled to sit their final exams which will be in Arabic, which will then signify the completion of the ISP and grants the student full authorisation in Islamic Scholarship (shahadah). This is in addition to the ijazat received throughout the ISP upon completion of certain texts of fiqh and hadith, and those issued on our Sacred Sciences Journeys.
