Jamia Al-Hudaa

Welcome to Jamia Al-Hudaa

The Jamia Al-Hudaa project was started due to an ever increasing demand for Islamic Education for Muslims within Europe. Jamia Al-Hudaa was officially opened on the 17th August 1996 by the eminent scholar Maulana Sayyed Abul Hasan Ali Nadvi. The aim of Jamia Al-Hudaa is to provide learning and training opportunities for students over the ages of 11 and 16 within an Islamic environment.

Insha’Allah, our aim is to make Jamia Al-Hudaa a centre of excellence for learning in Europe. We want to ensure that our future generation is Islamically educated whilst having the opportunity to study other subjects. Not only do we want to develop the Islamic personality in our students so that they will be able to apply the Qur’an and Sunnah in their daily lives, but also work for the cause of Deen in Europe.

Our aim is to develop Jamia Al-Hudaa into a fully recognised institution throughout the world thus providing the best education in an Islamic environment. For this we need the support of the Muslim Ummah in Europe.We pray to Allah (SWT) that we are successful in this Islamic cause, and that He (SWT) guides us in every step. Ameen.
