THE INTERNATIONAL ISLAMIC UNIVERSITY MALAYSIA


PHILOSOPHY The philosophy of the University was inspired by the recommendations of the first World Conference on Muslim Education held in Mecca in A.H 1398 (A.D. 1977). The spirit and meaning of this philosophy is based on the Holy Quran, in particular the five Quranic verses revealed to the Prophet Muhammad (Peace Be Upon Him), namely, Surah al-Alaq, verses 1-5. According to this philosophy: i. knowledge shall be propagated in the spirit of Tawhid, leading towards the recognition of Allah as the Absolute Creator and Master of mankind; the recognition of Allah as the Absolute Creator and Master of mankind represents the apex in the hierarchy of knowledge; VISION AND MISSION VISION Inspired by the worldview of Tawhid and the Islamic philosophy of the unity of knowledge as well as its concept of holistic education, IIUM aims to become an international centre of educational excellence which : revitalizes the intellectual dynamism of Islam and the Ummah; integrates Islamic revealed knowledge and values; seeks to restore a leading and progressive role for the Muslim Ummah in all branches of knowledge;

Students who fail this test are required to register for Tilawah classes and attendance is compulsory. The classes are conducted by Assistant Religious Officers under the supervision of the Leadership and Training Unit. Students have to attend classes once a week for 10 weeks per semester. The classes are from Monday to Friday between 8.00 am and 5.00 pm. At the end of the semester, a centralized examination is conducted for the students.

It is hoped that the Study Circle activities are able to provide conducive environment for internalizing Islamic teachings. Study Circle is compulsory for all students who have passed the Tilawah Entrance Test (TEnT). Study Circle group is led by a facilitator who has been selected and trained by the unit.
