Whitethread Institute for Higher Learning | Founded by Mufti Abdur-Rahman ibn Yusuf Mangera
Whitethread Institute has recently been founded primarily with the intention of catering for ‘alims and ‘alimas, the leaders of our community.
We estimate there are at least five hundred ‘alims and ‘alimas just around the London area. There are many madrasas operating but not many that provide post-graduate courses.
For our scholars to keep abreast of contemporary challenges and remain relevant, a number of enhancement courses are necessary. Whitethread Institute is launching a number of much needed post-graduate courses after Ramadan 2017.
There will be the Ifta’ Specialisation Course, the Advanced Islamic Theology Program and the Advanced Islamic Jurisprudence Program, along with other short courses throughout the year for the women and men of the area. This is the first institute of its kind.
To get this off the ground and see the institute through its first year, we require £100,000 ( lillah donations).
Alhamdulillah, the venue is already set up and centrally located near Stratford Station in East London. Your contributions will be used to run the courses in a professional manner, provide the appropriate resources, and secure expert teachers to train our religious leaders, in order to better benefit the entire community.
We intend to make a real impact on the growth of the current community as well as be a source of strength for the Deen of future generations.
It was narrated from Abu Hurayrah (may Allah be pleased with him) that the Messenger of Allah (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) said: “Allah said: ‘Spend, O son of Adam, and I shall spend on you.” (Bukhari)
