Institute of Islamic Education

The Institute of Islamic Education (IIE) was established in 1989 in Elgin, IL. It is an independent, non-profit, full-time educational Institution aimed at providing its students with an education in the sacred and intellectual foundations of Islamic heritage. We have grown from our humble origins and now educating brothers and sisters on two separate campuses. We offer two full-time programs; The Hifdh Ul-Qur’an Program and the Alim Program. IIE follows a classical method of instruction, emphasizing on close teacher-student interaction, and focusing on textual transmission and analysis. The Institute also offers weekend and evening programs for part-time learners.

We invite you to learn more about our Institute and our programs, both full-time and part-time. May Allah the Most High bless you now and forever.

Donate Generously

[Ahmad and Muslim related that the Messenger of Allah, peace and blessings be upon him, said:”When a person dies, [the benefit] of his deeds ends, except in three: a continuous sadaqah, knowledge from which benefit is derived, or a pious child invoking Allah (SWT) for him.”]

There are many costs involved in running this institute, and not all students who are interested in enrolling can afford to do so. We do not wish to exclude anyone, however, there are unavoidable costs that must be paid. Therefore, in order to help students in such a situation, IIE has started a sponsorship program. In this program, a benefactor can donate funds to go directly towards providing a quality education for students who otherwise could not afford it. In this blessed month of Ramadan, each act of good will be multiplied by seventy units. We ask that you take advantage of this month and invest a generous donation to support our students at whatever level you can afford. May Allah give you the best reward.
