It is critical for Muslims to appreciate, support, and supplicate for valuable efforts that seek to make the Islamic landscape richer in our country. The Institute of Knowledge isn't just one such valuable effort, it is a reason for our collective pride. Its professionalism, enriching environment, cooperative spirit and well articulated vision are both ahead of their time and long overdue!
Ustadh Nouman Ali Khan
The Institute of Knowledge is a unique effort that fuses together Islamic and secular academics. It is a very unfortunate reality in modern times that Islamic knowledge and the secular sciences are considered to be separate and exclusive of each other. This is contrary to our history. Great scholars in classical times were not only Mufassiroon, Muhaddithoon, Fuqaha, etc but were also doctors, astronomers, and poets. The Institute of Knowledge is needed for our times and more importantly for our future generations. My prayers are with IOK and I am always at its service.
Shaykh Abdul Nasir Jangda
In this age of Muslim schools opening up in every community, IOK has proven to be a leader in its innovative method of integrating academic and Islamic studies. Its graduates are leaders in their communities, who selflessly serve Muslims and non-Muslims alike. I personally know the IOK, and support it wholeheartedly. I ask Allah for its success and humbly request the community to support this amazing cause
Imam Tahir Anwar
It's remarkable how IOK's concept has produced so much and so many, long before the project was fully completed. That says a lot about the concept, its potential, and the people behind it. This shows how deperately IOK is needed in our Community.
Shaykh Mohammad Faqih
IOK is not just a structural landmark but a symbol of Islamic progress for all of America and the Muslim world. It has developed and implemented an unprecedented system of harmoniously combining Islamic and secular education in a way that neither are compromised. This unique endeavor has already produced a number of outstanding individuals that fill a great leadership schism in our community. I am honored to be part of this project in the capacity of a teacher, adviser and well wisher. May Allah Ta'ala assist and protect this Institute. Ameen.
Shaykh Juniad Kharsany
Sh. Nomaan Baig's efforts in creating a unique curriculum for our youth - one that combines essential aspects of Arabic, tajweed, and other sciences while keeping in mind our youth's Western upbringing - is a necessary and commendable effort. I wish him and his Institute all the best and pray that his students go on to become leaders in their respective communities.
Shaykh Yasir Qadhi
The Institute of Knowledge is clearly an idea whose time has come. As we begin to envision institutes of higher learning in our community we will have to start thinking seriously about meaningful preparatory programs. The Institute of Knowledge has translated that thought into action. This is an initiative the entire community must support.
Imam Zaid Shakir
The mission of the Institute of Knowledge is very noble and it is the key for the survival and success of our future generations. I have known this Institute personally and have seen its work and achievements in a short period of time. I pray for its continuous growth and success with Allah’s mercy and guidance and generous support of our community.
Dr. Muzammil H. Siddiqi
I really admire and respect Shaykh Nomaan Baig and his staff members for running the Institute of Knowledge. They are helping children and teenagers memorize Qur’an and understand the Islamic Sciences. IOK is certainly producing the future leaders, Imams and scholars of America. I really admire them because I see them every day and I want to associate myself with them till the Day of Judgment
