Alhamdulillah I am pleased to announce the inauguration of The Islamic Seminary of America, the first program of its kind in the Western world. I am humbled that the Board has asked me to be the Dean of the Islamic Seminary, and I ask Allah for guidance.
We aim to grant M.A. and M.Div. degrees, in Leadership, Islamic Studies, and Chaplaincy. These degrees will eventually be accredited (it takes a few years for a new Institute to obtain accreditation, and we are on track to do that). As well, we have a relationship with SMU, and our students can register at SMU and get a joint degree from the Islamic Seminary and SMU (further details on our website).
Although the Seminary is based in Dallas, TX, students can take our courses from anywhere in the world. However, for graduation, we do require that students attend, in person, two full weekends per semester in Dallas (as per course schedule).
Our launch will officially take place at a Gala Dinner in the Hyatt Regency, in Dallas, TX on Sunday, February 24th, where more details will be shared.
For those of you who are in Dallas, please join us! We will have a host of great speakers, including Dr. Muzammil Siddiqui, Shaikha Tamara Gray, Shaikha Iesha Prime, Ustadh Ubaydallah Evans, Shaikh Tahir Anwar and Shaikh Abdul Nasir Jangda.
For those who are not based in Dallas but are interested in the program and wish to enroll, or find out more information, log on to our website and register for 'More Information': http://www.islamicseminary.us/about-us
