“إِنَّا أَنزَلْنَاهُ قُرْآنًا عَرَبِيًّا لَّعَلَّكُمْ تَعْقِلُونَ”

— ‘Verily, We have sent it down as an Arabic Qur’an in order that you may understand’. [12:2]

  • Unlock A Wealth Of Islamic Literature

    Al Miftah, (meaning the key in Arabic), will unlock for you the language of the Qur’an, ahadith, and a wealth of Islamic literature for you to engage with as part of your ongoing studies.

  • Learn A Combination Of Classic & Modern Arabic

    This course has the needs of English-speaking learners in mind, and will prove invaluable to students at the beginning of their journey and likewise for those who may have a background in learning Arabic.


For Muslims, the most honourable book (Qur’an) was revealed to the most honourable Prophet and Messenger (Mohammed ﷺ). It was delivered by the most honourable Angel (Jibril) in the most honourable land on earth (Makkah). Its revelation began in the most honourable month of the year (Ramadan). It was also revealed in the most honourable of languages (Arabic). Therefore, the Qur’an is perfect in every respect, and knowledge of Arabic is indispensable.

  • Students, over one year, will have an opportunity to learn a combination of Classical (the oldest type of Arabic that is studied widely, the language of the Qur’an, and core texts from the classical age of Islam) and Modern Standard Arabic (a direct descendant of Classical Arabic, now the language of elevated discourse of correspondence, contemporary literature, and the mass media)

  • Teaching will also stress Arabic vocabulary acquisition and the study of Arabic Grammar and Morphology

This is an undergraduate level course on Shari'ah & Islamic Theology which encompasses an in depth study of subjects such as Tafseer, Hadith, Fiqh and the principles of Tafseer, Hadith and Fiqh.

He has also undertaken Prison Chaplaincy, in which roles included counselling, leading prayers, pastoral care and more.


  • Professional & Experienced Teachers

    We take pride in the fact that all members of our faculty have sacrificed many years to pursue their Islamic education - whilst all have been formally trained by esteemed scholars in the UK, many have also studied in classical institutions abroad to further embellish their credentials and maintain the institute's impeccable standards.

  • Students Have Targets & Future Prospects

    We ensure students are given realistic targets in what they will be able to achieve through their course of study as well as being given the chance to further their studies after they have completed their chosen course.

  • Removing Barriers To Education

    Most people have great dreams of studying their faith but fall short because of the many barriers in their way. At Al Miftah, we aim to remove all such barriers to allow students to study their faith whilst keeping their unique situations in mind. We ensure our courses are manageable by providing weekly live classes as well as supplementary resources to aid students in their studies at a pace that suits them best.
