Our philosophy is based on the Islamic teachings of our prophet Mohammed (peace be upon him).Respect and care for one another is central to our philosophy, supporting students in developing a strong sense of responsibility and a real desire to play a full and active role in their community.
In September 2014, I became Principal of the Muslim College, and was proud to be given the opportunity to lead the UK’s first largest Muslim College. My vision for the Muslim College is to provide the best education for students in Islamic Studies. Changing lives for the better in a setting where students and members of staff are proud to be.In terms of that education, my belief is simple. In several verses, Allah the Exalted in Power showed us how He raises up the scholars in ranks. Allah says: “Allah will raise up to (suitable) ranks (and degrees) those of you who believe and who have been granted knowledge.And Allah is well acquainted with all you do.” (Al-Mujadilah 58: 11) Also, Allah showed us how distinct the scholars are from those who are not knowledgeable.Allah says: “Say: Are those equal,those who know and those who do not know? It is those who are endued with understanding that receive admonition.” (Az-Zumar 39: 9)

At the Muslim College we strive to provide an education that meets the needs of all the students.We offer a wide and varied curriculum taught by enthusiastic, talented staff. We acknowledge that academic success is not something all students find easy, however our goal is to have all our students realize their potential.With this in mind,we endeavor to provide programmes that meet the needs of all individuals.

The study facilities have been improved and expanded to exceptionally high standards as part of the college’s redevelopment programme. If you choose to come and study any of the Islamic Studies programmes at the college, you are guaranteed to receive the best education and training in the sector and the use of outstanding resources.
I believe you will not regret joining us on this ‘once in a lifetime’ journey in a truly remarkable learning environment. Together we can create innovative opportunities for students and new hope for our wider community.
