Message from the Dean
At Mishkah, we seek to facilitate an outstanding learning experience of the sacred knowledge of Islam to a wide variety of students with different circumstances. To realize that goal, much thought was given to the teaching methods, choice of teaching staff, and most certainly, the curricula being taught.
Our teaching method is assisted online education with onsite functions to boost your learning experience. We have regular interactive sessions with instructors through our virtual classrooms. Mishkah also provides all the needed educational materials in each student’s virtual library. In addition, with our upgraded Learning Management System (Moodle), we strive to foster greater interaction between all parties in the learning process and promote the growth of a student community where students establish long lasting relationships with peers across the world.
Our teachers are selected to not only deliver authentic information in an effective and attractive way, but to also be the best role models for their students. Mishkah chooses those who honor the knowledge they possess through their observance of the best Islamic conduct – a student may sometimes benefit more from the teacher’s conduct and etiquette than his or her knowledge.
Dear students, this knowledge will only be beneficial if it is sought for Allah’s sake, coupled with compassionate devotion towards Him, and diligent adherence to the way of our most beloved Prophet Muhammad (blessings and peace be upon him). It will be retained only by frequent reviews, and confirmed by teaching it to those who are less knowledgeable.
Seek Allah’s help and maintain great resolve and great humbleness.
Dr. Hatem al-Haj
