  • The Ettiquettes of Islam – Shaykh Abdul Fattah Abu Ghuddah
  • The Gift of the Seeker – Imam Abu Bakr Ibn Mohammed al-Mulla al-Ahsa’i

”The foundation course allowed me to gain confidence in my personal practice, allowed me to spread this to my near and dear ones and provided a platform for dealing with current issues that we face on a daily basis by being able to ask questions and clarify misconceptions. Completing the foundation course made me realise the deficiencies in my knowledge regarding essential topics of the religion and created a thirst for knowledge..” Foundational Diploma Graduate.

Upcoming Module:

Resuscitate Your Soul – The Beginning of Guidance

Based upon the works Bidayat ul Hidayah by Imam Al-Ghazali.

Are you seeking spirituality in everyday life to revive your soul?

The Messenger of Allah (Sallallaahu ‘alaihi wasallam) said “None of you have truly believed until his inclination is in accordance with what I have brought.”

Living in a time of moral decay surrounded in an atmosphere of spiritual deprivation, Darul Arqam brings to you the opportunity to study the magnificent works of Imam Abu Hamid al-Ghazali (may Allah be please with him) ‘The Beginning of Guidance’.

This course:

  • Aids individuals with implementing Prophetic etiquettes of everyday life in accordance with the Sunnah.
  • Equips students with the knowledge to imbue their daily lives with good deeds.
  • Navigate spirituality in a modern age void of spiritual influence.
  • Inspires a zeal for spiritual excellence.
  • Is brief, yet concise and comprises the fundamental aspects of Islam – a perfect introduction to Islamic etiquettes, understandings and study!


The Islamic Studies Foundational Diploma is taught in a loop format to allow multiple intake of students throughout the year. You can begin at any module (current intake will begin with Resuscitate the Soul) and continue through the programme until each module has been completed – so that you will not duplicate any modules.
