The Ilm Programme is a new initiative of the Islamic Association of North London (IANL). The Programme will cover Islamic basics and essentials across the broad range of all Islamic sciences such as theology, law, Quran, hadith and history, whilst also facilitating the study of more advanced levels of knowledge via a trusted source.

By the end of the Ilm Programme students should have a firm grounding in the knowledge of Islam, its development, fundamentals, nuances and how to apply it in the modern world. This will enable them to a) come closer to Allah via seeking knowledge, and b) be encouraged to apply what it means to be a Muslim in their communities.

This Programme is open to all brothers and sisters of all backgrounds regardless of age or previous Islamic knowledge.

Teacher Biography

The course will be taught by Shaykh Dr. Haitham al-Haddad.

Shaykh Dr. Haitham al-Haddad is a jurist and serves as a judge for the Islamic Council of Europe. He has studied the Islamic sciences for over 20 years under the tutelage of renowned scholars such as the late Grand Mufti of Saudi Arabia as well as the retired Head of the Kingdom’s Higher Judiciary Council.

He specialises in many of the Islamic sciences and submitted his doctoral thesis on Islamic jurisprudence concerning Muslim minorities. Shaykh Haitham is highly respected having specialised knowledge in the field of fiqh, usul al-fiqh, maqasid al-shari’ah, ulum al-Qur’an, tafsir, aqidah, and fiqh al-hadith. He provides complex theories which address the role of Islamic jurisprudence within a western environment whilst also critically re-analysing the approach of Islamic jurists in forming legal rulings (ifta’) within a western socio-political context.

He has many well known students most of whom are active in dawah and teaching in the West. The shaykh is an Islamic jurist (faqih) and as such is qualified to deliver verdicts as a judge under Islamic law, a role he undertakes at the Islamic Council of Europe as Islamic judge and treasurer.
