Mission and vision
Institute of Islamic Education (IIE) was founded by Mawlana Qari Muhammad Abdullah Saleem under the patronage of Hadrat Mawlana Muhammad Naim Sahab (RA), Shaykh al-Hadith of Darul Uloom Deoband Waqf.Established in 1989 in Elgin, IL, IIE is an independent, not-for-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 are educating brothers and sisters on two separate campuses. We offer three full-time programs; The Hifdh al-Qur’an Program, the Ālim Program and Ifta (authority to issue religious decrees, i.e. Fatwa). IIE follows a classical method of instruction, emphasizing on close teacher-student interaction, and focusing on textual transmission and analysis. IIE 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.
Mission and Vision
- Preserving Islamic heritage of Muslim ummah and educating our children, boys and girls with the true understanding of Islam and its peaceful teachings.
- Propagating and disseminating knowledge and upholding our legacy of Islamic scholarship
- To be recognized as one of the pioneering institutions of higher learning in Islamic religious sciences in the U.S.
We understand from Hadith that knowledge will be lifted from the earth by the death of true scholars and the ignorant will lead the masses as we get close to the end of times. We are indebted to those before us who have preserved this knowledge for us. Now it is our turn to carry this responsibility to propagate this knowledge and uphold our legacy of Islamic scholarship. This is the mission of IIE, a mission that is truly needed for the growing Muslim communities across the United States.
