Group Discount & Scholarships

Assalaamu 'Alaykum Warahmatullahi Wabarakaathuh

The Cambridge Islamic Sciences Seminars has been running for a few months and it is rapidly gaining popularity by the Grace of Allah. We hope and pray that this would be of benefit to many more people in the future.

Muslim Education & Outreach Cambridge (MEOC) which organises these seminars is a non-profit organisation run entirely by volunteers without any paid staff. So all the money it generates goes 100% into educational and outreach projects.

We have set fees for these seminars to cover the costs which runs into thousands of pounds for each seminar. Furthermore whatever money you spend on these seminars will be considered money spent in the path of Allah and you will be rewarded for it. So more you spend the better it would be. In addition to this, the benefit you will gain from these seminars in terms of knowledge and understanding is priceless. Therefore the modest fee we charge is of immense value for money both in this world and the next.

However we do recognise that some people have difficulty affording the course fee for different reasons. Therefore we are trying to break these barriers as much as we could to make the seminars accessible to a wider audience. We have two schemes in place now for this purpose.

1. Group Discount - G5D

A group of 5 people can register and pay a group fee of £90. This works out to be £18 per person which is significantly less that the "door fee" of £30 or the "online fee" of £25. As the fee is significantly reduced the booking and the payment should be made in advance and there will be no cancellations or transfers possible. We hope that this would be of interest to student groups and larger families.

2. Scholarships

For those who really cannot afford the course fee we may be able subsidise the fees through sponsorship/scholarship for a very limited number of attendees. If you would like to be considered for a scholarship please write to stating the reasons and we will assess each application with the strictest confidence. The scholarships are not guaranteed as we can afford them only as long as scholarship funds are available. However it is worth appying for if there is a real need.

For those who wish to sponsor scholarships to financially assist those in need you can do so at the following link. It will be considered spending for sacred knowledge in the path of Allah.

Currently there are two courses open for registration:

This Saturday - Liberate Your Mind & Uplift Your Imaan

Assalaamu 'Alaykum Warahmatullahi Wabarakaathuh

This is the final opportunity to sign up for one of the most spiritually uplifting, Imaan strengthening and intellectually liberating courses that you may ever come across InshaAllah.

"Al-Aqeeda of Imam al-Tahawi is a simple yet profound expression of the essential points of Muslim belief. In this course Shaykh Akram explains these points in an intellectually liberating and spiritually uplifting way showing, how they can be the basis for unifying divergent theological positions in this day and age. Undoubtedly this will be one of the best 'Aqeedah courses you would have ever attended InshaAllah."

Al-Aqeedah Al-Tahawiyyah - The Unifying Creed of Imam Tahawi

Principles of Classical Islamic Theology

By Shaykh Dr Mohammed Akram Nadwi
(Oxford University)

Date: Saturday 29th January 2011      Time: 10:00AM - 6:00PM
Venue: Lady Mitchell Hall, Cambridge University, Sidgwick Site, Sidgwick Avenue, Cambridge CB3 9DA [map]


This is a unique course by a great teacher, MashaAllah.

"Of all the scholars I have had the opportunity to study with, I have found Shaikh Akram Nadwi to be the closest, in knowledge, manners and teaching, to how I would imagine some of the great Hadith scholars of the past would have been. He has a vast knowledge of Hadith, Fiqh and Qur'an, a down-to-earth, humble, approachable style, and great teaching ability. His classes are not just beneficial from a learning perspective, but also to marvel at the awe-inspiring wealth of knowledge of our scholars masha Allah. His 57 volume work going through the biographies of some 8,000 women scholars of Hadith is a monumental endeavour. The mere fact of its existence can be a major talking point in discussion with Muslims and non-Muslims, and is almost a stand-alone proof of Islam's unparalleled wealth of female scholarship." - Dr Omar Mahroo, Cambridge/London

More About Teacher:

These courses are so beneficial and amazing that the feedback received is extraordinary.

"The course was simply amazing, it was a lot of information to take in but was definitely worthwhile. As for Dr Mohammed Akram Nadwi, words cannot serve justice for explaining how humble yet knowledgeable he is. Alhamdulillah I went with my whole family and intend to attend all of his future courses InshaAllah"  - Rahee Ahmed, Law Student, Kent University
