In the early 1990’s, the fruits of a meeting of scholars heralded the Open School for Arabic and Islamic studies (OSAIS). It recognised that a new generation of Muslims had particular educational and spiritual needs, while all the more being active in UK life, including pursuing Higher Education. The concern amongst prominent UK based scholars was how to best disseminate Islamic knowledge to this generation, for many whom English was a second language.
In keeping with the methods of our virtuous predecessors, the School adopts an analogous scheme in both its teaching material and ethos, whilst utilising classroom based facilities with the option of online study, and recognising the time challenges faced by many wishing to seek knowledge.
