    LI Islamic University Applicants

    Report bad ads?



    Islamic Universities Info:

    I thought it would be a good idea to start a thread on sharing information about apply to Islamic Universities, tips for those who are applying this summer, and current applicants to share information and those who have connections in saudi to get some up to date information on LI.

    Salam,

    Am on my home inshallah when I get home ill answer your question as best as possible Inshallah.

    But for now:

    Someone with excellent Akhlaq i think this is the main thing, if they see that in you that would be excellent. My advice is for everyone to change their character, so in the interview your not acting different so we should make our character excellent, interview or no interview.

    For Madinah you dont need to have As in every GCSE (but it would help), but general GCSE 5+ but there are many who got in with low GCSE grades so I dont think its a big issues but general GCSE thats all they ask for. For Ummul Qura they like students with higher grades but like i said that does not mean you wont get in, my friend who got in 3 years ago didnt have the best grades but alhamdulilah he is there in his 3rd year.

    To be straight with you most brothers have all the right papers and good references but its all about making dua akhi and being sincer with yourself and doing it to please Allah.

    Inshallah Ill put some more things up when i get home.

    Re: LI Islamic University Applicants

    Salam,

    This a post ona blog which was made my American Students in Madinah and this was a very beneficial post which has alot in it, the bits in read is my addition as something are more for american students:

    As-Salamu Alaikum,In response to those in high school who are interested in studying at the Islamic University:

    THE BIGGEST REASON APPLICATIONS ARE REJECTED IS BECAUSE OF MISSING REQUIRED DOCUMENTS OR LACK OF ARABIC TRANSLATION.


    The general rule at the university is that those who are applying from western countries i.e. America, Canada, Europe and so forth are not allowed to come without a high school diploma.

    The following conditions of admission are taken from the application:

    1) An applicant must be a holder of the general certificate of secondary education (high school) or its equivalent from any of the kingdoms schools or from abroad. (A G.E.D is also accepted)

    GCSE

    2) Not more than 5 years should have passed since the applicant obtained the general certificate of secondary education or its equivalent

    For UK students this could mean college as in the American and Saudi system students leave highschool at 18 as we leave 16 but 2 years sixform or college which count.

    3) An applicant should not have been dismissed from another university on disciplinary or educational grounds.

    4) An applicant should not exceed the age of 25

    Students from countries that dnt have student who apply are the exception

    6) An applicant seeking admission to the college of Qur’an should have memorized the entire Qur’an.

    Along with these conditions, an applicant must present the following documents with his application:

    a) A copy of high school diploma GCSEs

    b) High school transcript for the senior year. Same as above

    c) A certificate bearing witness to the good character and religious practice of the applicant from a reliable source. ( Known as a tazkiyyah, you may acquire one from the Imam of your local mosque or from most reputable callers to Islam (du’aat) insha Allah) two references

    d) A birth certificate

    e) Six passport size photos (4×6)

    f) Please have a copy of your umrah or hajj visa. (This is for students who come for Umrah or Hajj)

    between October 23 till January 20 (however they usually allow people to apply as soon as school starts if you come in person) and the address for those who are not able to make umrah or come to the University for an interview is:

    Deanship of Admission and Registration

    The Islamic University, P.O Box 170

    Madinah Munawwarah, Saudi Arabia

    As for those applying as American students we request that you send your paper work to:

    Note: All information is to be translated into Arabic and notarized, the university will not accept applications without Arabic translations.

    Note: We can no longer help in turning in applications. If anyone comes in person we will gladly help them.

    May Allah grant you all success, ameen.

    Talking Re: LI Islamic University Applicants

    Salam,

    Those of you who are in the uk and are after some good references that are well recognized by the Islamic Universities here is what a senior student in Madinah has said about who to get good references from and I ber witness to what he said because when i went what he said was true.

    PS the bits in red are from me:


    Assalaamu alaikum

    If there is anyone who would like to apply to the Islamic University of Madinah, all they need to do is send their papers to my Address in Madinah and I will personally hand it in. however, I don’t want to un-necessarily get anyone’s hopes up, as getting into the Islamic University of Madinah is purely down to Allaah’s Qadr. Some have got in without even one letter of recommendation and not even knowing what soorah al’faatihah is (like one Chinese brother who was in my class when I first got here) and some people try year after year with a folder full of letters of recommendation, and they don’t get in. It is just down to Allaah’s Qadr and then ones Du’aa. One should take the necessary means for a du’aa to be answered and I personally advise that one should try at least once to stand in prayer during the night and ask Allaah during the last third of the night for the tawfeeq to be allowed to study in the Islamic University of Madinah.

    So after one has taken the most important means to get into the Islamic University of Madinah (ie to ask Allaah) the most effective secondary means of getting in is letters of recommendation. I have personally sat down and spoken to those who accept applications and they have told me that the likes of Shaykh Suhaib Hasan of Masjid Tawheed, London, and the ‘Jam’iyyah ahl al.Hadeeth’ are known to them and hold a heavy weight when it comes to choosing those who will be accepted. Also, Shaykh Ahmad Uwais is also well known to those who deal with the acceptance of students however from what I have heard he has left London and gone back to Somalia. However, if one can somehow get a letter of recommendation from him when he visits England, then that would be excellent.


    Shaykh Ahmed Uwais is back in the UK and is seen often praying in the Somali run masjid in Tottenham (North London) or in masjid tawheed in Leyton east london. He is very friendly and very approachable mashallah and speaks somali, english and arabic fluently.


    After that, all one needs to do is download the application form here => http://www.iu.edu.sa/admissionform.doc

    And post it to me at:

    Jamah Tucker
    Islamic University of Madinah
    PO Box 10133
    Madinah, Saudi Arabia

    Below is some extra criteria that the University looks out for and I have added some extra comments to explain some of the points and to highlight others.

    And finally, I have spoken to those in charge of new applications today and I explained to them my course and what I would be teaching over the summer holidays. I was told by the administration that as I am a student at the Islamic university I can give those students who study with Arabic-courses.com a letter of recommendation and this will aid the applicant in the acceptance process and also priority is given to applicants who have a good grasp of the Arabic language both spoken and written. So due to this we will now be offering a written letter of recommendations to all those who complete the Arabic courses with us. Also, if after the course one would like to personally apply to the Islamic University of Madinah and have a formal interview, then we will be happy to take them to the University and show them where to go.


    I hope this helps you brother and sisters wishing to apply...

    Re: LI Islamic University Applicants

    Salam,

    Those of you who want to get a reference from Shaykh Suhiab Hassan you will need to attend a few of his lesson in Masjid Tawheed on Fridays and Saturdays at 6:30pm every week. All my friends who had interviews in Madinah all there interviewers recognized his reference and were pleased with it in fact. The Shaykh was from those who were the first students to study and graduate from the gates of the university and his father Allama Shaykh Abdul Gaffar Hassan al Hini (rh) taught there for over 16years in the faculty of Hadeeth and took over Imam Albani's (rh) position when he left mashallah tabarakallah.

    If the Shaykh decided to give you a reference he will first interview you and ask you a few basic questions which is great training for the real one when it comes inshallah.

    Hope this helps

    Re: LI Islamic University Applicants

    Salam,

    More Info on Madinah:

    A friend of mine at Madinah was telling me about the lessons taught in the first and second year so i thought it would be a good idea to share to those interested:

    During the first year of the Arabic program in the Mahad (Arabic School) there are 4 main lessons; Grammar(Madinah Books), Conversational Arabic Lesson, Writing lesson and a class on Quran and Tajweed. Madinah arabic book 1 and 2 are taught in the first year and Madinah book 3 and 4 are taught in the 2nd year (Madinah book 1,2,3 are available in the west). In the second year more subjects are introduced basic fiqh, hadeeth, seerah and other topics. Students during the first year study from about 8ish to 12ish but i believe college students study longer uptil 2pm if am correct. There are also daily buses that take students back and forth from the University and the Prophets Masjid daily (A similar service is also available in Imam Muhammad Ibn Saud but i think its 4 days a week and the school bus takes them to Shaykh Salih al Fawzan's masjid for his duroos but am not sure about Ummul Qura). The buses in Madinah Take students from asr from the Uni and taken them back after isha from the prophets masjid.

    If anyone has more correct information please share inshallah...

    I hope this helps more coming soon inshallah stay tuned...

    Lightbulb Re: LI Islamic University Applicants

    Salam,

    Sisters Information on Ummul Qura University in Makkah:




    As salaamu ‘alaikum wa rahmatullaahi wa barakaatuh. I’ve sought permission to share some sister to sister advice concerning Ummul Quraa University. We’d like to stress that our sister in the deen is not a representative for the university. Her answers are based off of what she knows as a current student. Her answers were not verified by any faculty member of the school. Ummul Quraa’s rules and regulations are subject to change. May Allaah bless her and her family in their studies and allow them to be a benefit to the Ummah, aameen.
    An excerpt regarding the permissibility of sisters “travelling” from Jeddah to Makkah is forthcoming. I hope this is of some benefit to you In Shaa Allaah.
    Haneefah
    KSA
    BTW, the questioner is not me (smiles)….really - it’s not.


    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Questioner: Can I live in Jeddah with my mahram and still attend the school?
    Sure. There are a lot of students who travel back and forth to the University from Jeddah. There is even a group of students from the Language Institute who all live in Jeddah with their families (their parents) and they carpool together everyday.


    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------


    Questioner: Overall, how much would you recommend Umm Al-Qura and how do you like going there?

    Alhamdulillah, the University for me has been a beautiful experience. It is, no doubt, A LOT of work, and is very challenging. The Language Institute here is thought to be the most challenging in the Kingdom. I recommend Umm Al Qura to anyone who has the capability and the urge to be a student of knowledge. The life of a student isn’t for everyone. There have been many families who’ve started, but for different reasons were’nt able to finish. There have been many students who’ve failed for various reasons. The Language Institute doesn’t start from “alif baa”. A potential student should come into the institute and at least know how to read ‘Arabic- even if its a slow pace. The curriculum is not impossible, but it definitely takes hard work.

    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------


    Questioner: How far is it from the Haram?

    The school is in a section of Makkah called Az-Zaahir. It’s about 5-7 mins away (by car) from the Haram on a normal day.


    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------


    Questioner: Jazakum Allahu khayran, mashaAllah very thorough. I just want to clarify my mahram: I live in the United States but my grandfather and my materal uncles live in Jeddah and inshaAllah I am going to live with them. Will this be acceptable?

    That’s fine maa shaa Allah. The only question would be would you have an iqaamah (residency) through your relatives, or would you want an iqaamah from the school? It might be to your advantage to have one through your relatives to start out with, then switch over to the school. Maybe you should look into seeing if they can add you onto theirs…that might be quicker than waiting for the school..especially since your mahram wouldn’t be attending with you. Wallahu ‘Alam.

    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Questioner: The application process:
    You can go to Bakkah.net they have everything you need to know. If you don’t have 1 of the required documents they won’t accept your application plain and simple. They won’t even consider it beacuse it’s incomplete. You have to straighten out your situation before applying.




    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Questioner: After the Language Institute, does a student automatically get accepted into the Islamic Sciences Department? So they have an Uloom al-Hadeeth major/school? Barak Allahu feekum.

    No, after the language program only a selected few are accepted into the actual Univeristy. 1) You have to have an accumulative GPA of 3.5 or higher- nothing less than mumtaaz (some students have been accepted w/an overall jayd jiddan), 2) your mahram has to still be present, 3) you also have to take an entrance exam. There are other rules that apply but these 3 seem to be the most important as far as women are concerned from what I’ve seen, Wallahu Alam. The University does have a Kitaab was Sunnah department, in which Uloomul Hadeeth is studied in depth.
