A Message From The Dean

Assalamu alaykum wa Rahmatullahi wa Barakatuhu,

Teaching sacred knowledge is one of the trusts that scholars will be questioned about when they meet their Lord. In addition to being a means of salvation from the stern warning of the Day of Reckoning where Allah says “Their testimony will be recorded, and they will be questioned” (Az Zukhruf 43:19), observing such trusts preserves the dignity of our Islamic community and promotes confidence in the academic Islamic environment.

It has been established as an academic code in both natural and human studies that a post-graduate student must be evaluated in front of an examination panel, even if his supervisor is a distinguished scholar. Islamic studies should also observe such a code especially now when indulgence and idleness in the granting of certificates and diplomas is unfortunately a common practice. Thus, the authentic practice of earning an Ejaza, following the methods of our righteous predecessors, has become even more necessary, and it is this practice that we are committed to follow and facilitate for our students.

Believers are described in the Holy Quran as those who are to their trusts and promises attentive, And those who are in their testimonies upright (Al-Maarij, 70: 33). A student has a right which is entrusted by his teacher, and the teacher is responsible for performing this trust honestly. Allah the most High has praised scholars and mentioned their testimony together with the testimonies of His dear angels – Allah witnesses that there is no deity except Him, and [so do] the angels and those of knowledge – [that He is] maintaining [creation] in justice. (Al-Imran 3:18). Therefore, any Islamic scholar should never accept to fall from his respectable place as a trustee of Allah and grant a student what he does not deserve, thereby encouraging fraud and the weakening of Islamic institutions and communities. We ask Allah, who is worthy of all praise, to make us among those who keep their trusts and safeguard the sanctity of the Quran and Islamic Knowledge.
