Introduction to Riyādus Sālihāt
Founded in January 2004, Riyādus Sālihāt is an educational institute for sisters offering full-time ‘Ālimah classes, and facilities for part-time adult education. Students have the opportunity of enrolling in the three year Fādhilah course, five year ‘Ālimiyyah Course (Islamic theology programme), the Further Education Course or the Preparatory Course.
The institute aims to provide students with the necessary foundations in the Qur’ān and Sunnah as well as the moral and spiritual attributes which have been the characteristics of scholars of Islām throughout the generations.
In a similar manner to the Jame’ah Riyādul ‘Uloom, the institute aims to equip students with the necessary academic and spiritual capabilities that will help students to become scholars of the future.
Choice of Courses
The academic year at Riyādus Sālihāt runs according to the lunar calendar; Shawwāl to Sha’bān (approximately August to June). Students wishing enrolment in the ‘Ālimiyyah, Fādhilah or Further Education courses are admitted in the month of Shawwāl. Enrolment for Preparatory Course takes place throughout the year, although majority of candidates are admitted in Shawwāl also.

After careful analysis of the applicant’s admission form, suitable candidates are requested to attend an assessment test and interview. Various questions relating to background, welfare, ambitions and commitment are asked. Thereafter, the admissions committee decides successful applicants within two weeks. All applicants are admitted on a three month trial basis.
