Educational Overview

In this day and age, where darkness has enveloped the world in its reigns, one of the best ways to find light is through the Holy Quran, which has been described by Allah ﷻ as a “guidance for all mankind”. Through the process of hifz, or memorization of the Quran, the hearts and minds of our youth will be illuminated, and they will learn to guide themselves through the teachings of the Quran.

Islamic Institute of Atlanta seeks to empower and educate our youth to become citizens that excel and thrive in the real world. To achieve these goals the school is structured on learning the traditional K-12 curriculum along with the Hifz and Aalim program.

At this time we are accepting students ages 10 and up.


The other core program of this facility will be its 6 year intensive Islamic seminary program. Students that will join this program will become scholars with a large knowledge base in all major areas of Islamic sciences. A sample of the concepts taught in this program is as followed.

Nahw (Arabic Grammar) / Sarf (Arabic Morphology)

The objective for studying Nahw is to learn the grammatical rules governing words, their states, their position in sentence, and sentence structures, so that one can read with thorough comprehension, write and speak without errors. The objective for studying Sarf is to master verb forms, their origins, their paradigms, changes and variations, and specificities.

Fiqh (Islamic Jurisprudence)

Students will be taught all four schools of thoughts in detail, so that they may have sufficient command of Fiqh to guide Muslims in their daily lives.


Studies in hadith will include a 1,000 hours of direct teacher instruction in the prominent books of Hadith, including Sahih Al-Bukhari, Sahih Al-Muslim, and other famous books of hadith.

A core program of this facility will be its Hifz program. Students will take a series of intensive courses that will teach them foundational Islamic values, memorization of the Quran, solid tajweed, and foundational leadership.
