7. Can I record the lessons? NO. We will be recording all lessons, and these will be made privately available (as a revision) for all registered students only.
8. Can I attend a few trial lessons? NO. If you wish to evaluate the teaching lessons of the academics like Shaykh Ahmad Saad, you may view his lectures online on Youtube, Vimeo, etc.
9. Are there any exams? NO. The Al-Husna Course Levels 1 & 2 are non-examinable courses dedicated to the sound and comprehensive knowledge and understanding of Islamic sciences.
10. Due to some work commitments, I may not be able to attend some lessons. Will the classes be recorded? To fully appreciate the course, its knowledge and application, students are highly encouraged to fulfill 70% attendance. We understand that working students may find some difficulty in attending all classes, and as such we will be making the class video recordings available privately to each student.
11. Will students be issued a certificate? YES, each student will be issued with a completion certificate.
12. What are the pre-requisites for the course? Students should be at least 16 years of age, and possess intermediate English proficiency, since the entire course is conducted in the English language. Students are not required to have any prior knowledge or formal exposure to Islamic studies, but they are expected to at least be able to read the Holy Qur’an at a basic level.
14. Do I need to attend Level 1 before attending Level 2? Al-Husna Level 1 & Al-Husna Level 2 have different module components. So, if you take Level 2 now, you can join Level 1 at a later intake. Although some modules like Aqidah and Fiqh are repeated, each level discusses different classical texts. Hence, students are NOT required to have attended Al-Husna Level 1 to undertake Level 2. Completion of both Level 1 & 2 will allow you to undertake the Al-Husna Level 3 course.
15. Do I have to attend all the subjects stipulated? Yes, students should attend all the module components as stipulated. The Al-Husna Course has been designed to provide a comprehensive knowledge of the Islamic science at different levels. Absenting oneself from an entire module component will seriously impair the knowledge building designed for the student.
16. What are the benefits of the course? There are many benefits of attending this course, among them being able to learn from a qualified international Islamic scholar, Shaykh Ahmad Saad. Other benefits are listed in the Course Details section [Why Join This Course?].
