Questions and Answers

Question: What is the teaching format?

Answer: Lessons are taught one at a time in an Islamic Lesson/Lecture format.

Question: What should a student be able to do after studying at the ISofE?

Answer: The goal of The Islamic School of Economics is to prepare Muslims for the trials of life.
Our goal first of all is to teach them the truth about their Lord, His Names, Attributes and Actions, and how to please Him and avoid displeasing him.
After learning the most important and beneficial knowledge, we then look to begin teaching the students from the Ways of Allah with His creation and rules He has placed therein.
Through this knowledge, students will be able to understand the reality of what is going on around them and how best to apply themselves for their own, their family’s and society’s benefit.
Students are to be taught how to identify problems within an Economy and how to look to be a means of solving and how to apply themselves to that end.
After a good period of studying at the ISofE, students are to be fully equipped with the knowledge to be able to identify areas for beneficial Business Activities, plan their building and liaising with others to reach a worthy goal.
We wish to teach our Muslim brothers and sisters to stand for themselves and to be trustworthy, honourable Muslims who use what Allāh has given them to show thanks to Him in the best way possible, in their Deen and their Dunya.

Question: How long should I study at the school?

Answer: There is no fixed period of study at the School and we address all students on a case by case basis.
We look to give sincere advice to every student. We first look at what the student has acquired of knowledge and understanding of how to please their Creator, and ways and means within the creation that are aides upon that.
When we feel that a student is better placed moving on to action in the wider world, then we are to advise them according to their specific situation, and are happy to even see if we can find a good fit for them in our partner businesses and institutions!
From the aims of the school is to prepare students to stand for themselves, so we do not like to guarantee a certificate at a set period, but rather prepare them for their lives and to be self-sufficient Muslims.
We look to develop lifelong relationships with students what we are able and to be a means of assisting them in their obedience to Allāh, The Most High.
