Fall Semester begins: Sep. 8

Our Fall Semester begins Sep. 8, with new and continuing courses. Our theme this fall will be The Amazing Qur'an - many of our courses will centre around the Qur'an, its language and vocabulary, its major themes, and lessons from specific surahs such as Surah Yusuf, described by the Qur'an itself as the best of stories.

Stay tuned for the launch of the fall courses - check our courses page as well as our facebook and other social media for updates.
