Shariah Studies Scholarships
Supporting the Seekers of Knowledge: Seeking knowledge is a Journey beyond boundaries, having the opportunity to seek knowledge in Various countries with traditional scholars, going through the financial difficulties, witnessing other seekers of knowledge struggling at various Islamic Institutions abroad, and yet when they return home, very happily they attend to the need of the community and society at large, whether through teaching, dawah work, leading prayers, inspiring our children to practice Deen. Imagine helping those seekers of knowledge when they need the help while studying abroad, can really uplift their morale, and you become part of Sadaqah Jariah (ceaseless charity) legacy.
Gift of Knowledge aims to inspire people to seek knowledge and to preserve traditional Islamic scholarship. It is GOK's intention to support students financially and morally who are proactive, confident, talented and willing to embark upon the journey of seeking knowledge. We support the seekers of knowledge to develop Imams, Scholars, Teachers and Leaders for our community.
We believe that building people is just as important as building mosques and schools, and through the Gift of Knowledge Shariah Studies Scholarship we hope to support the development of a new generation of scholars for the contemporary world.
The scholarship will include structured learning, financial, mentoring, internship and academic support for the successful candidate throughout their journey. The successful candidate would have completed a bachelor’s degree in the UK prior to embarking upon this journey. The scholarship is based on a course of study of up to 6 years of full-time education, including an Arabic Diploma and a Shariah Studies degree (delivered in Arabic) from a recognised institute abroad.
A nation can only progress through education, and humanity can only succeed through Divine guidance. It is the priority of Gift of Knowledge to focus on building people. It is our hope that those individuals, once they have completed their studies, will be able to help and guide the community with divine guidance and beneficial knowledge.
