What our Alimiya students have to say about us

Beacons Institute provided me with the tools and equipment to understand and gain inspiration on how to approach the Islamic studies and sciences. In particular, their push on critical thinking and personal development is something one can use when seeking knowledge about this dunya and the akhira.

I highly recommend this Alimiyah course. The teaching is clear and concise, and the materials are comprehensive and insightful.

In just a amount of time, I've learned so much and have gained a deeper understanding of Islamic knowledge.

For a long time I wanted to start learning more about my religion but I didn't know where to start. Joining Beacon Institutes Alimiya Programme was that first step I needed. Alhamdulillah I have learned a lot and have gained a deeper understanding of Islam.
