    • Dean’s Message “It is my great pleasure to welcome you, Islamically, to the IOU experience in which the various avenues of divinely-revealed knowledge have been opened for you. This opportunity has been made possible by the ‘accidental’ invention of the Internet, a human creation resulting from divine inspiration. At a time when Islamic learning is caught between fossilization and revival, hijacked by modernism and extremism, a chance to promote its teachings in their original unadulterated form was born. Allahu Akbar — surely this is a mercy from Allah. I sincerely hope that you will take full advantage of this unique opportunity to deeply understand the major areas of Islam, apply what you learn in your lives, and share this divine legacy to the world around you.” Dr. Bilal Philips Founder & Dean 02 www.islamiconlineuniversity.com
    • ABOUT ISLAMIC ONLINE UNIVERSITY The Islamic Online University (IOU) is the brainchild of Dr. Bilal Philips. He envi-sioned an institution that would offer online intensive, undergraduate, and graduate courses in Islamic Studies completely tuition-free. The IOU was initially launched in 2001 from UAE with an offering of a few short courses. After a five year interlude, it was restarted in 2007 from Qatar with a greater offering of completely free short 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 2009 has ended, Allah has blessed the IOU with a student body of over 15,000 students from over 160 different countries . The IOU is now launching the world’s first tuition-free, online Bachelor of Arts in Is-lamic Studies. This path-breaking initiative plans to utilize 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 . 03
    • FOUNDER Dr. Bilal Philips – Founder and Dean Dr. Abu Ameenah Bilal Philips is a Jamaican Canadian Islamic Scholar who converted to Islam in the early 70’s after journeying politically and intellectually from Christianity to Communism. Shortly after his reversion to Islam, he embarked on a spiritual academic journey seeking Islamic knowledge. This journey took him to Saudi Arabia where he completed a BA in Islamic Studies in Madeenah, and an MA in Islamic Theology in Riyadh, then to the University of Wales, UK, where he completed a PhD in Islamic Theology in the early 90’s. After graduation, Dr. Bilal became a teacher of Islamic studies for 10 years in an Islamic high school, Minaret Al-Riyadh, Saudi Arabia, and a lecturer of Arabic and Islamic studies in the American University in Dubai, UAE, for another 10 years. During his time in the UAE, he founded the Islamic Information Center in Dubai. During the next 6 years, he served as the Islamic consultant for the Islamic Information wing of Shaikh Eed Charity in Doha, Qatar and founded the Islamic Studies Academy. He has written, translated and commented on over 50 published books on various Islamic topics. He has also edited and published the 56-book Eemaan reading series for children and presented Islamic programs for many years on Riyadh Channel 2TV, Sharjah TV for 10 years, as well as Peace TV, Huda TV, Islam Channel, UK, and the Deen Show, Chicago, USA. In 2000 Dr. Philips founded the Islamic Online University (www. islamiconlineuniversity.com) offering free Islamic courses to over 18,000 registered students from over 160 different countries worldwide. He is also the Founder and former Head of the Islamic Studies Department of Preston University (2002), Ajman, UAE, the Founder and Head of the Islamic Studies Academy (2007), Doha, Qatar, the current Founder and Head of the English-medium Islamic Studies Department of Knowledge International University (2008), Riyadh, and Head of the College of Da’wah and Islamic Culture (English Section 2009), Omdurman Islamic University, Sudan. Most recently, Dr. Bilal was appointed the Director of PERF (Professional Education and Research Foundation) and Supervising Director of Preston International College (www.prestonchennai.ac.in) and Al-Fajr International School (www.alfajrinternational. com), Chennai, India. 04 www.islamiconlineuniversity.com
    • THE MISSION “Making authentic Islamic knowledge readily available to the world through the Internet solely for God’s pleasure is a noble life-goal and a mission well worth sacrificing all of one’s energies and means for.” - Dr. Bilal Philips The Islamic Online University aims to grant global access to quality undergraduate, graduate and postgraduate level Islamic education programs for students at virtually no cost. Its mission is “to change the Muslim nation and the world situation through appropriate education.” The principles upon which the IOU is based are: Divine Knowledge of the Quran and Sunnah God said: “Indeed it is only the knowledgeable among His servants who truly fear Allah.” (35:28) The Last Prophet said: “Seeking knowledge is obligatory on every Muslim.” Accessibility The Islamic Online University already provides a golden opportunity to access Islamic courses wherever people may be and whenever they wish, without having to travel overseas or even leave the confines of their homes. Its goal is to be for any-one, any place at any time. The Last Prophet said: “If anyone travels on a road in search of knowledge, Allah will cause him to travel on one of the roads to Paradise.” Affordability The IOU demonstrates its continued commitment to spreading authentic Islamic knowledge by progressing from an absolutely free certificate and diploma level courses to a tuition free BA, thereby making higher Islamic education easily afford-able worldwide. Free tuition for all students provides equal access to an education that few could afford if they attended traditional institutions of higher learning around the world. God said: “Say: Are those who know equal to those who do not know?” (39:9) 05
    • Community No student will be prevented from studying at Islamic Online University, regardless of their religious, ethnic or social background. The IOU affirms that its doors will remain open for all, irrespective of the borders existing in the real world. It has already spawned a global community of over 18,000 students who seek Islamic knowledge from over 160 countries and share their knowledge and concerns in supervised student forums. God said: “Cooperate with each other in righteousness and piety…” (5:2) Islamic ethics It is the fundamental belief of the Islamic Online University that the Muslim teacher is essentially different from a teacher who merely happens to be a Muslim. Likewise, the Muslim student should be distinctly different from a student who so happens to be a Muslim. The IOU expects all its students, faculty, staff, administrators and vol-unteers to function as Muslims first and foremost in their respective positions and fields. Doing so will naturally entail maintaining the highest standards of personal integrity, honesty and responsibility. The Last Prophet said: “Indeed, Allah loves from each of you that whenever he or she does work, that is done according to the best of his or her ability.” Quality and Application Islamic Online University is committed to providing a top quality online academic ex-perience, suitable in its scope and depth to convey authentic and practical Islamic knowledge, while at the same time enabling its students to face the contemporary challenges of the 21st century. IOU will assess and re-evaluate every aspect of its academic model on an ongoing basis and will not only encourage its students to study diligently, but also emphasize that they must strive their utmost to put the knowledge gained into practice. The Last Prophet said, “The best of you is one who learns the Qur’aan and teaches it to others.” He also said, “The best of you is the one most beneficial to people.” The Last Prophet’s disciple, Ibn Mas‘ood said, “We used to learn knowledge and its application together.” Imaam Sufyaan ath-Thawree related that as a youth, when he first began to attend classes, his mother advised him, “If you write down 10 words and your faith hasn’t improved, check yourself.” 06 www.islamiconlineuniversity.com

    • THE METHOD IOU provides a unique learning experience. The University recognizes that many students may not have studied online before; it is quite different to traditional classroom-based learning. Therefore, it has put in place all the necessary demos and organized a user-friendly learning environment to help newcomers to the field of online education. It is vital that IOU students are fully prepared for its online learning methods and processes and that they have the required level of English to enable them effectively and successfully study in this environment. Consequently, IOU has developed a series of orientation courses that are mandatory for all students. Comprised of students from around the globe, the student body will learn through watching and listening to video and audio lectures as well as reading PDF format texts with the support of well trained tutorial assistants. Within the online study communities, students may share resources, exchange ideas, discuss weekly topics, submit assignments, and take exams. IOU is thankful to Allah for having enabled us to earlier launch the first institution offering completely free online courses and now the tuition-free BAIS. We are dedicated to spreading authentic Islaamic knowledge and a proper understanding of the true religion of God. As such, the students and professors who comprise IOU represent a diverse group coming from both under-developed and developed countries globally. 08 www.islamiconlineuniversity.com

    • ENROLLMENT & FEES Islamic Online University is a tuition-free institution that seeks it profits from Allaah. The University does not charge students to take classes. Readings and other study materials will be available online free of charge. There are two areas, enrollment and exam processing, which require modest fees, based on the standard of living in the student’s country of residence: Semester Enrollment Fee: Enrollment for a semester has a registration fee which ranges from $10 to $50 based on the student’s country of residence. Exam processing fee: The semester’s courses end with comprehensive examinations for which students must pay a flat fee based on a sliding scale. The fee will range from to $10 - $50 per semester based on the student’s country of residence. The cost of an Islamic Online University BA program will be only a fraction of the cost of a comparable degree from a public university, even for students who live in countries with a very low standard of living. 11
