Hawza Ilmiyya


One of the outstanding educational systems that excel in both academic and traditional Islamic sciences is the Hawza Ilmiyah at the Islamic College, also known as the Hawza Ilmiyya of England. Since its establishment, it has contributed in remarkable ways to community building and providing educational and spiritual services to the Muslim community in the UK, Europe and Internationally.

Hawza Studies is one of the Islamic College’s academic Departments which, while sharing with them their high standards of academic excellence, also differs from them in one important respect; it embodies and presents the time-honoured and long-standing ethos of traditional Hawza Ilmiyyas all around the world.

Those students who choose to study in the Hawza while receiving full training in academic writing, rational thinking, and research skills, study modules and materials and methods which are taught in the traditional Grand Islamic Seminaries. Moreover, as is the case in all well-established and historically prominent traditional Hawzas, the students in the Hawza receive a good deal of training in the Islamic way of self-development/ tazkiyah and the skills and practices necessary for those who wish to become Imams and resident ‘Alims (scholars) in Muslim faith communities in the UK and other countries in which English-speaking traditional ‘Alims are in demand.
