The Shia Seminary of Islamic Studies is a newly formed organisation established to serve the Shia community in Europe.
Its aim is to provide the teachings of the Holy Prophet and the Ahlul-Bayt (peace and blessings be upon them all) to the Shia community, and to establish courses designed for various segments of the community.
We intend to serve the whole cross-section of the Shia community, God willing, particularly with the objective of producing the community leaders, scholars and educators who can lead and serve the community according to the teachings of the Quran and the Infallibles (peace be upon them).
Through the new Muballigh Course, we intend to begin work in achieving this aim, so that the students can be prepared to take on the responsibilities of the mihrab and the mimbar.
As an educational institute, we also aim to bring general religious guidance to the Shia community through literature, especially through the internet. We will continue to progress, with Allah’s help, to deliver other courses and projects.
The Seminary is managed by the Director with the support of the Governing Board, consisting of a network of senior scholars from across Europe.
This is a project for our community and cannot succeed without the community's support; as such, we need the assistance of the community in terms of manpower and finance.
