Prophet Muhammed (peace be upon him) said : Surely, the people are followers of you, and men will certainly come to you from the regions of the earth to gain understanding in the religion. So when they come to you exhort them with good. (Tirmizi)
The importance and virtues of seeking religious knowledge is established from Quran and Sunnah.
Even though we live in a modern world where most of the emphasis is placed on getting the university degree, still there are so many brothers and sisters who want to gain traditional religious knowledge but place, time and availiability of teachers puts a constrain on them.
Ihya Academy was established in 2010 to teach abridged version of traditional Dars-e-Nizami course,as taught in Indo-Pak region, completely online to enable the seekers of knowledge to study the traditional texts at the convenience of their place and time. Alhumdulillah, now we have expanded our course offerings and there are many Certificate courses on offer now.
