Alim Course.png


Islamic Institute of Atlanta was started by scholars born & raised in Atlanta, GA with the purpose of offering Higher Islamic Education without compromising Academic studies.

IIA strives to excel in both Higher Islamic & Academic Education.

“The superiority of the learned man over the devout worshipper is like that of the full moon to the rest of the stars (i.e., in brightness).” (Abu Dawud and Tirmidhi)

Classes are taught by qualified male and female scholars who have graduated from various madaris.

The Aalimiyyah course is a comprehensive study of the Islamic Sciences, the breadth of which includes expertise in:  Arabic grammar, Tajweed, Literature, Tafseer Al-Qur’an, Hadith, Islamic Law (Fiqh), and Islamic History.


Courses are offered in a traditional environment with students spending approximately 5 hours per day receiving direct instruction from certified scholars. The coursework prepares students to become upright citizens with the aptitude to become Imams, school teachers, administrators of Islamic Institutions, academic researchers and writers.  Upon graduation, students may also choose to pursue specialized studies in Fiqh to become Mufti, Hadith to become Muhadith, Tafseer to become Mufassir, and/or other sciences.
