Sacred Study

Nuturing Iman


At Fountain Institute, the core aim is to nurture Muslims towards becoming realised servants of Allah. The Sacred Study programme reconnects individuals with the unbroken scholarly tradition of Islam and its holistic expression, which historically has guided individuals to live enabled lives in a meaningful and purposeful way by seeking to please their Creator and Sustainer.

This learning process emphasises the importance of the metaphysical and spiritual truths that inform Islam’s well-known practices. Reconnecting through learning facilitates realisations in one’s faith. Making choices based on knowledge refines the soul and draws one closer to Allah and His messenger. Hence, the leitmotif, Knowledge – Practice – Realisation, underscores the intention and thought behind the various educational programmes offered by Fountain Institute.

With various options for registration, we still have our full year course registration availabe. This will allow you to study all the subjects at a much reduced price. Select the specific year for more information with options to register.

2. Equally, the modules are part of a course. This means by studying all the modules under a given course, a learner covers the whole subject and not only a specific area.
