When does the Academic year commence?

For both Dar al-Mustafa and Dar al-Zahra, the Academic year is based on the Islamic Hijri calendar. The new study year commences on the 10th of Shawwal and ends on the 20th of Sha’ban.

I am not fluent in Arabic. Can I enroll in Dar al-Mustafa / Dar al-Zahra?

There is a beginner’s Arabic stream within both institutes. Those with no fluency in Arabic would be required to apply for these courses. As for the rest of the Islamic Studies courses, reading and writing Arabic is a prerequisite.
