Seminary

Through the grace and blessings of God, the IOK Seminary was established with the goal of educating and training the next generation of American leaders – both men and women, to serve their communities as scholars, leaders, and practitioners of the moral teachings of Islam.

One of the greatest needs of Muslim communities throughout America is qualified Islamic scholarship – Islamic Scholars who are trained and equipped to deal with the unique issues we face as Muslims living in America. We need teachers, mentors, chaplains, youth directors, scholars, and community leaders who have a deep understanding of the Islamic academic tradition along with an understanding of the culture, norms, customs, and traditions of the society they live in.

Now we are looking to the community for regular donors who are willing to support this work. This is one of those rare donation opportunities where your donation is going directly to the costs of the program.

Chaplaincy

In 2015 we launched the idea of IOK Chaplaincy with the intention of trying to develop a program wherein we could place individuals trained in the Islamic tradition in positions to provide spiritual care, guidance, and education to college students in Southern California. We knew that many of our brightest and most talented will be attending these universities and that it was essential for us, as a community, to serve them directly in those spaces.

Our goal in chaplaincy is to provide an anchor that ties the students to the greater Muslim community and Islam as it has been understood from its sources for centuries. We are there to provide spiritual care and support during a time in their lives that is filled with uncertainty and challenges.

When we started this work we had two chaplains serving two campuses. In the over three years that we have been doing this work now the efforts have grown to eight chaplains and eight campuses. From 2017 up to today we’ve had over 1400 individual office hours appointments with students ranging in issues from family problems, to career questions, to mental health issues, to general conversations about learning and living Islam in our context.

Testimonials

“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 desperately 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

“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.”
