Alim Course Curriculum

For as long as one can remember, studying the higher Islamic sciences meant spending many long years abroad in a country far away. Discouraged by the problems associated with travel and study outside of the United States, many young and motivated seekers of knowledge were long deprived of authentic sources of Islamic learning.

Currently, Al-Hameed Boy’s Academy Alim Program is offering the first 2 years of a six-year, post-secondary program designed to train its students in the classical foundations of the Islamic sciences. The course is based on a traditional curriculum of study, covering a wide array of subjects such as:

  • Arabic Grammar (Syntax and Morphology)
  • Arabic Literature (Speech, Composition, and Rhetoric)
  • Islamic Theology (‘Aqidah)
  • Principles of Islamic Jurisprudence (Usul al-Fiqh)
  • Fiqh (Jurisprudence)
  • ‘Ulum al-Hadith (Sciences of Hadith Interpretation)
  • Hadith (Prophetic Traditions)
  • Usul al-Tafsir (Principles of Exegesis)
  • Tafsir al-Quran (Exegesis)
  • Sirah (Prophetic Biography)
