Sponsor a Scholar
The solution to terrorism and worldwide negativity about Islam has to come from within. To counter these negative perceptions and to improve the worldwide image of Islam, the Zia Ul Ummah Foundation has started a scholar programme, which covers college and university education. Students from disadvantaged backgrounds can undertake FA, BA and MA degrees in Islamic studies, commerce, finance, computer studies or political science. The medium of instruction is English. We encourage our students to develop a deep understanding of secular subjects as well as take courses in Islamic law and finance to tackle the challenges of the 21st century.
Many have gone on to take up clerical positions in Islamic centres or become bankers, lawyers and academics in the USA, UK, Holland and Germany, representing the Islamic scholarly point of view at international forums.
