The Academy for Learning Islam (A.L.I.) is a registered charity committed to teaching and explaining the religious tenets, history and practices of Islam according to the Shi‘ah Ithna ‘Ashari school of thought.


Religious education is an important goal of the Muslim community. Weekend Madrasahs (religious institutions) and Majaalis (gatherings during religious occasions) have played an important role in this task, but a different approach is required for more serious learning through the adult years. Youths and adults need to refresh their Islamic knowledge and inspire themselves on a regular basis.


A.L.I. aims to fulfill this niche through learning that is more structured and serious than that derived through monologue lecturing, but which does not require a long term commitment of time – a short commodity in today’s modern times. Thus A.L.I. conducts classroom based and Distant Learning short courses on various Islamic subjects and furthers Islamic education in the community through publications, retreats, and periodical newsletters.
