Islamic Online University's Mission:
"Making authentic Islamic knowledge readily available to the world through the Internet solely for God's pleasure is a noble life-goal and a mission well worth sacrificing all of one's energies and means for."
Dr. Bilal Philips, Founder and Dean, Islamic Online University

The Islamic Online University aims to grant global access to quality undergraduate, graduate and postgraduate level Islamic education programs for students at virtually no cost. Its mission is “to change the Muslim nation and the world situation through appropriate education.”

The principles upon which the IOU is based are:
Knowledge: Quran and Sunnah
God said: “Indeed it is only the knowledgeable among His servants who truly fear Allah.” (35:28)
The Last Prophet said: “Seeking knowledge is obligatory on every Muslim.”






The Islamic Online University already provides a golden opportunity to access Islamic courses wherever people may be and whenever they wish, without having to travel overseas or even leave the confines of their homes. Its goal is to be for anyone, any place at any time.
The Last Prophet said: “If anyone travels on a road in search of knowledge, Allah will cause him to travel on one of the roads to Paradise.”


The IOU demonstrates its continued commitment to spreading authentic Islamic knowledge by progressing from an absolutely free certificate and diploma level courses to a tuition free BA, thereby making higher Islamic education easily affordable worldwide. Free tuition for all students provides equal access to an education that few could afford if they attended traditional institutions of higher learning around the world.
God said: “Say: Are those who know equal to those who do not know?” (39:9)


No student will be prevented from studying at Islamic Online University, regardless of their religious, ethnic or social background. The IOU affirms that its doors will remain open for all, irrespective of the borders existing in the real world. It has already spawned a global community of over 18,000 students who seek Islamic knowledge from over 160 countries and share their knowledge and concerns in supervised student forums.
God said: “Cooperate with each other in righteousness and piety... ” (5:2)

Islamic ethics

It is the fundamental belief of the Islamic Online University that the Muslim teacher is essentially different from a teacher who merely happens to be a Muslim. Likewise, the Muslim student should be distinctly different from a student who so happens to be a Muslim. The IOU expects all its students, faculty, staff, administrators and volunteers to function as Muslims first and foremost in their respective positions and fields. Doing so will naturally entail maintaining the highest standards of personal integrity, honesty and responsibility.
The Last Prophet said: “Indeed, Allah loves from each of you that whenever he or she does work, that is done according to the best of his or her ability.”

Quality and Application

Islamic Online University is committed to providing a top quality online academic experience, suitable in its scope and depth to convey authentic and practical Islamic knowledge, while at the same time enabling its students to face the contemporary challenges of the 21st century. IOU will assess and re-evaluate every aspect of its academic model on an ongoing basis and will not only encourage its students to study diligently, but also emphasize that they must strive their utmost to put the knowledge gained into practice.

The Last Prophet said, “The best of you is one who learns the Qur'aan and teaches it to others.”

He also said, “The best of you is the one most beneficial to people.”

The Last Prophet's disciple, Ibn Mas'ood said, “We used to learn knowledge and its application together.”

Imaam Sufyaan ath-Thawree related that as a youth, when he first began to attend classes, his mother advised him, “If you write down 10 words and your faith hasn't improved, check yourself.”
