Student Testimonials

  • I was able to relearn my religion in an intellectual atmosphere. I was able to spiritually grow through learning about the 40 ahadith of Imam Nawawi from a seasoned hadith expert scholar, I was able to delve into the Tafsir of the last 10 Surahs of the Qur’an and learn from a renowned Qur’an scholar, and most importantly I was able to learn the tenants of our faith and fundamentals of our beliefs from a knowledgeable and passionate theologian.

    Full-time 1st year intermediate student at Darul Qasim
  • I was enrolled in the summer Arabic intensive. Studying proper grammar was a very eye opening experience and opened many doors for me in studying and understanding the foundational texts of our deen, and most importantly being able to begin to appreciate the Qur’an at a higher level. I would recommend Darul Qasim to each and every Muslim who seeks to learn their deen, including professionals, for which they are accomodating.

    Medical Student, Chicago
  • More than education, Darul Qasim provides a culture where students can strengthen their relationship with Islam and develop a strong Muslim identity. The recently renovated serene campus provides a religious space which I called my second home. Education in DQ helped tremendously in my MDIV degree to become a Muslim Chaplain with sound Islamic educational background. I have left a piece of my heart there. My soul still yearns to go back and fulfill the need of further learning about my faith.
