Islamic Community Leader Certificate

INTRODUCTION

The Islamic Community Leader Certification program delivers all the skills a person requires to lead a Muslim community that does not have full-time access to a qualified scholar. It equips students with the knowledge and training needed to handle the most common issues a small community would want assistance in, thus helping them carry out their religious practices in an informed and correct manner.

COURSES

This certification program is open to those who have successfully obtained the Islamic Essentials Certificate. There are five courses in this certification program. Each course is a total of 12 two hour lessons that is delivered twice a week. Courses can be taken at a students pace in any sequence they desire. Certification will be granted upon the successful completion of all five courses.
