بسم الله الرحمن الرحيم

Fayda Institute is an Islamic educational institute that seeks to establish, maintain, and preserve the Islamic Intellectual Tradition among the Grassroots Communities in America.

The methodology and curriculum that we adhere to is modeled after the mahdhara system found in West Africa. Our program is specifically designed to produce Islamic scholarship according to the highest standards.

Our vision for Fayda Institute is to be the center for the Renewal (Tajdid) process within the Grassroots Communities in America by connecting it to the African Islamic Intellectual Tradition and the luminaries who established it.

We want to change the culture of the Muslims. We seek to change their social circles from circles of ignorance, to circles of light. We seek to change their interests from interests that darken their souls, to interests that illuminate them.

We want all Muslims to engage the traditional intellectual heritage of Islam. By offering a dynamic curriculum that exposes them to Sacred Texts, along with qualified teachers ready and willing to teach them from beginning to end, we hope to fill a void that is present in our communities. Our priorities must be indicative of that which we are commanded to do, and that is to seek knowledge. We eliminate the excuses, and provide an opportunity for everyone to learn.
