At Jamiah we believe that the educational material from which students study should be engaging, digestible and well-organised. To overcome some of the difficulties and obstacles students were experiencing in subjects that are integral to the Alimiyyah Course, Jamiah has published books on these topics. They provide students with a holistic view of the subject taking their essence from reliable works.
Jamiah endeavours to expand their selection of curriculum books for the Alimiyyah course which will provide students with a good grounding in each subject, enabling them to move through the course with a better understanding.
