From 2014 to 2019 Madina Institute has grown in leaps & has achieved great progress in facilitating the Usul al Din programs to so many globally. The 29th of September 2019 marks the culmination of years of hard work, vision & a tireless effort by all those involved.
The campus is designed to enhance the learning experience. From the science behind the placement of audio & visual facilities to the lights & aesthetic feel of the campus, it is all geared for a productive student learning experience.
The technological infrastructure will allow our lessons to be broadcast across the globe, and for lessons to be delivered by scholars from other parts of the world.
Islamic Sciences will always require contact. The exchange of knowledge happens with the air that we share, that being said, the technology will allow for subject experts to deliver material to our students here, and for us to reach thousands of students around the world.
Education through compassion leads to illumination that results in transformation.”

The airy, modern yet simplistic environment which is designed to create a healthy and holistic study environment maintains the atmosphere throughout the campus. It holds state of the art technology that will aid in the studies for both the BA degree and the Usul ud Din Intensive programs. As this year comes to a close, we look back at it with fond memories. With all the beneficial knowledge we have gained with the help from the lecturers, the admin staff and the trustees behind the scenes, we feel enlightened. Although this program has been incredibly intense, we walk away fully transformed & spiritually uplifted. Madina Institute truely stands by their motto of compassion, education, illumination.
We look forward to seeing new faces of potential students as well as our current students who will continue in their bid for the exciting BA degree. We pray that the new campus, with the blessings of Thee Almighty, further enriches students with beneficial knowledge & a better understanding of the foundations of the din that they will carry with them throughout life & will benefit them in the Aakhira. We further supplicate that this journey is one of growth, enlightenment and enrichment.”
