Islam is a way of life. It is a pathway which has been laid by Allah throughout the ages of human history. It is a road upon which scores of Prophets have tread, from our father Adam, to his sons Noah, Abraham, Moses, and Jesus, and finally the Prophet Muhammad ﷺ . Thus, it behooves us to step back and see how we can improve ourselves as we walk on the path back to the Lord our God.

Islam is the final religion, and one of the most important characteristics of this religion is that it is a religion that regulates all aspects of life. Islam is the religion of this world and the Hereafter. Allaah says (interpretation of the meaning):
“Say (O Muhammad): Verily, my Salaah (prayer), my sacrifice, my living, and my dying are for Allaah, the Lord of the ‘Aalameen (mankind, jinn and all that exists)” [al-An’aam 6:162]

Your children have the right to be lead by your Islaamic example.One cannot just tell their children to do something while they themselves do not do it. Allah says in the Qur'an, 'Enjoin you Al-Birr (piety and righteousness and each and every act of obedience to Allah) on the people and you forget (to practise it) yourselves.' [Surah Al Baqarah, 2:44]

“None is granted it except those who are patient — and none is granted it except the owner of the great portion (of happiness in the Hereafter, i.e., Paradise and of a high moral character) in this world” [Fussilat 41:35].

The Qur'an is a Book of Guidance, and it is in reflection on the meaning that we benefit. Thus it is very important for us to re-assess how we are dealing with the Qur'an. We should be reading it regularly, not leaving it for Ramadan only. Dr. Bilal Philips

It was narrated from Abu Sa’eed al-Khudri (may Allaah be pleased with him) that the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) said: “There is no Muslim who calls upon Allaah with words in which there is no sin or severing of family ties but Allaah will give him one of three things: either He will answer his prayer soon, or He will store it up for him in the Hereafter, or He will remove something bad from him that is equivalent to what he is asking for.” They said, “Then we should make a great amount of du’aa’.” He said, “Allaah is greater.” Narrated by al-Tirmidhi, 3573; classed as saheeh by al-Tirmidhi and others.

"Women like attention and they like to be told clearly that they are loved. Don't be stingy in expressing your love for your wife. If you become limited in expressing your love, you will create a barrier of harshness between you and her, and there will be a decrease in affection." -Imam Ahmad ibn Hanbal (raheemahullah)

The love of Allah is the axis around which all good revolves." If you fall in love with Allah, and then strive to be true in your love--in accordance with the way of the Beloved of Allah (Allah bless him and give him peace), then you'll find nothing but increasing light and contentment in your life.

Changing the Muslim nation and the world situation through appropriate education.
The Islamic Online University (IOU) is the brainchild of Dr. Bilal Philips. He envisioned an institution that would offer online intensive, undergraduate, and graduate courses in Islamic Studies completely tuition-free.

Dr. Bilal Philips, Founder and Dean, Islamic Online University

The IOU was launched in 2007 from Qatar with an offering of completely free diploma courses.

Alhamdulillah, although we began with 1,500 students in 2007, by the end of 2008, the number of registered students tripled, reaching 4,500. And now, as 2010 draws to a close, Allah has blessed the IOU with a student body of over 30,000 students from over 177 different countries.

In 2010 the IOU launched the world’s first tuition-free, online Bachelor of Arts in Islamic Studies. This path-breaking initiative utilizes the worldwide presence of the Internet and advanced open source online learning technology to bring low-cost, university level Islamic education within reach of anyone on the planet who has access to a computer and the Internet.

Thus the IOU Now has two separate virtual campuses: the degree campus and the diploma campus. Each campus is hosted on its own dedicated server.

General Information
Islamic Online University offers tuition-free Islamic courses leading to certificates, diplomas and degrees taught completely in English with the exception of Arabic language. Its courses are accessible from two streams:

1. The first stream consists of free intensive courses from the traditional fields of Islamic disciplines in separate topics of immediate, practical relevance and benefit to new students of Islam. It is a structured program where the courses are arranged into increasingly more advanced levels. Certificates are issued to graduates of each course and a diploma for those who complete all the courses offered. This stream also serves as an introduction to online study for students who wish to pursue the BA in Islamic Studies. 

2. The second stream is a full-fledged formal Islamic Studies (Usool Ad-Deen) Degree Program in English (BAIS). This course is taught completely Online. Course Material, provided online, will consist of written material of the basic text being taught plus Audio and Video Lectures of classes, and live tutorial classes.


IOU’s current programs are of three types:

1. FREE COURSES: A series of free courses arranged into an organized program of study wherein students who follow the recommended sequence will embark on a study program guided by Dr Bilal Philips himself. The program provides an introduction to the basic Islamic sciences and insight into the manhaj or way of the Prophet (pbuh) as embodied in the Qur'aan and authentic Sunnah in accordance with the understanding of the first generation. Some of the courses will be on topics of immediate and practical relevance to the students. The free course of study will also introduce students who wish to pursue an accredited BA or MA in Islamic Studies to the methodology of the BAIS program. 

2. BA and MA COURSES: The other facet will be the full-fledged formally accredited Islamic Studies (Usool Ad-Deen) Degree Program in English (BAIS). Course Material will consist of written material of the basic text being taught plus Audio and Video Lectures of classes conducted in the ISA-Doha, or elsewhere. 

3. DIPLOMAS & CERTIFICATES: Diplomas will be granted for the completion of all the courses offered in a given subject of the BAIS program. Certificates will be given for each of the free courses and a diploma for those who complete all of the free courses.

The free course component of the IOU is currently open for enrollment. Those interested will first have to create a site account and then enroll for the courses of their choice.

The IOU was originally a product of Dr Bilal's teaching courses in Islamic Studies at the American University in Dubai for seven years after Islamizing the complete curriculums of study for the college of education of the Sharif Kabunsuan College in Cotabato City, Mindanao, Philippines in the early nineties. One year after the IOU’s establishment in 2001 the program ran into technical difficulties and had to shut down, however, the material developed for its courses was used to establish a department of Arabic and Islamic Studies at Preston University – Ajman, UAE and three years later the department had its first batch of BA graduates.

After running the Islamic Studies department at Preston for one year as its dean, Dr Bilal moved to Doha, Qatar, and in the beginning of 2007 established another BA in Islamic Studies (BAIS) program in Doha, approved by Omdurman Islamic University in Sudan for accreditation, under the title of the Islaamic Studies Academy.

In April 2007 the Islamic Online University (IOU) reopened its doors with the popular Da’wah Training Course after a five-year interlude. To enhance the students’ leaning experience, the server and the LMS (Learning Management System) of the IOU have been upgraded. As a result, the courses now have audios and Flash format videos enabling easy viewing online for all types of internet connections. There are also monthly online live student forums with Dr Bilal, as well as general forums for students to discuss and research together.

DR. ABU AMEENAH BILAL PHILIPS was born in Jamaica, West Indies, and grew up in Canada, where he accepted Islam in 1972. 

He completed a B.A. from the College of Islamic Disciplines (Usool ad-Deep) at the Islamic University of Madeenah in 1979 and a M.A. in Islamic Theology in 1985 at the University of Riyadh, College of Education. In 1994 he completed a Ph.D. in Islamic Theology in the department of Islamic Studies at the University of Wales. 

From 1994 to 2001, Dr. Bilal founded and directed the Islamic Information Center in Dubai, United Arab Emirates and the Foreign Literature Department of Dar al Fatah Islamic Press in Sharjah, UAE. 

In the year 2001, Dr. Bilal established the Islamic Online University, the first accredited Islamic university on the Internet. 

He was a professor of Arabic and Islamic Studies at the American University in Dubai and Ajman University, head of the Department of Arabic and Islamic Studies at Preston University-Ajman, UAE, a lecturer and director of Da'wah and Education at Qatar Guest Center, Doha, Qatar, and is currently the Dean of the Islaamic Studies Academy in Doha (see: ) More information about him and his activities may be found at

The BA & MA programs of the IOU represent the online version of the Islamic Studies Academy’s accredited BAIS & MAIS programs, which are the only accredited BAIS & MAIS programs avalaible online.

 Student groups and forums on the Facebook or anywhere else on the internet outside the IOU website are neither created nor maintained by Islamic Online University and the students who join these groups or forums are responsible for their own decision. We request the students to report to us if they find anything unethical or unislaamic somewhere in the name of IOU so that we can alert the IOU students about it.
