To revive an islamic educational tradition, and produce the most thorough scholars of our time!
When someone mentions Timbuktu, we immediately envision an ancient, far away, distant place in the deserts of Africa. But what it should also bring to mind is EDUCATIONAL EXCELLENCE.
TIMBUKTU is one of the oldest Universities in recorded history.
In the 14th century it was the largest university in the world, with over 25,000 students and 180 Quranic Madrasas. Not only that, it’s graduates were considered superior to all other scholars. And although islamic education is based on the oral tradition of transfer, Timbuktu had over 7,000 handwritten books in its public library. Entire countries didn’t have as many books.
