Madina Institute South Africa for Islamic Studies and Research empowers students with the correct and better understanding of the Book of Allah, the Holy Quran and the authentic Sunnah, the prophetic model. Intellectual paradigms are bridged by a curriculum with a balanced and moderate approach to religion. It aims to link the past with the present with a Foundational Scholarship of Islamic Sciences.


While Islam is one of the fastest growing religions of the world the reality is that in South Africa Islam is growing but still a minority. The Institute strives to fulfil the demands of Islamic societies in countries such as America, Canada, Europe and South Africa, wherein the Muslim population is considered a minority.


The ground-breaking one-year intensive Uṣūl-ud-Dīn traditional program is designed to produce leaders, who are schooled in five foundational sciences of our Dīn.

• Qur’anic Sciences
• Sunnah Sciences
• Jurisprudential Sciences with its foundation in the Four Madhāhib
• Islamic Creed, Philosophy and Logic
• Spiritual Sciences and the Purication of the Heart
• Intensive Arabic Language – Program to negotiate Classical texts


These areas of study will prepare the student to master the Sharī‘ah Sciences and will provide opportunities for employment in various fields of teaching, Sharī‘ah consultation, Islamic centres, educational gatherings and da‘wah (calling people to Allah with insight and knowledge), if Allah Wills.
