In fact, my overall experience with IOU cannot be overemphasized. It has quenched my thirst for traveling outside my country of residence to study Islam. IOU has not only exposed me to authentic knowledge about Islam but also aroused my interest to study more.

I was introduced to the Islamic Online University through Sheikh Yusuf Estes in one of his TV shows on Guide US TV. Once I heard about the program, I immediately researched it and signed up. Alhamdulilah, I finished the Bridge to MAIS program and I am waiting to start my Masters in Islamic Studies; and in the future the PhD program, inshaAllah. My experience with the IOU was wonderful as I have learnt from excellent teachers, TAs and course material that is very similar to the top Islamic universities in the world. I was also excited to join the IOU as this is a program by Dr. Bilal Philips.
I learned about the Islamic Online University through a friend who recommended it to me. I am really grateful for having completed my Bachelor’s at IOU. I will cherish every moment spent in the online experience from the wonderful syllabus to the interactive online classes, exciting assignments, to the challenging module tests and exams. Now, having gained authentic knowledge from renowned scholars and tutorial assistants, I aim at sharing the beautiful message of Islam with others.
