Madrassa Teacher Training

After years of experience in Islamic training it was noted that there was still a very serious lack of madrassa teachers in the Nairobi area. It was also noted that we had ladies who attained some formal Islamic education having the potential of imparting it to the others. Allah blessed us in creating this department for day scholars.

Alhamdulillah in March 2013 it was made a pilot project with 15 ladies to put it to test. We had our first graduation in December 2014 after having completed 5 school terms.
