  4. As salamu Alaikum to all my Muslim sisters and brothers across the Globe,

    I am a Canadian born and raised female who 29 years old الحمد لله I am in awe of this university, especially with the cost but slightly saddened I was not aware of it or discovered it even exists until now. (Bittersweet moment) Side Note: What actually lead me to the site was reading a message left by one of my extended family members in our What’s app group which was a photo of my grand father’s credentials. He was Moms Fatherالشيخ الطاهر الطيب بدر رحيمه الله who was also my Dad’s Father’s half brother in relation) so from both my parents, yes we are a huge family. Alhamdulilah. Anyways back to the story, It was a picture of his completion of his Masters Degree in اصول الدين at this University in 1958. At the time he graduated top of his faculty. I am sharing this because I am truly inspired and this Happened this morning as I was making Duaa relentlessly as it is the 1st of the 10 most beautiful days of the year الحمد لله for all to guide me and protect me from all evil. Recently, I discovered that black magic has been put on me and I am seeking to cure myself everyday, and if you can also Pray for me as well. It would mean the world to me. جزاكم الله الف خير? But further more than seeking Allah to cure me, I have been secretly in my heart asking Him to guide me to my true purpose in this world and how can I return to Allah with a sound hard that I lived in this Dunya to spread the knowledge and beauty in Islam and help cure others Insha’Allah. I know I am a big dreamer but I thought I would share how powerful Allah is, because in my quest to find treatment, Allah guided me here to this page to not only share this with you but answer my Duaa and provide me with this opportunity! I am truly so inspired by my grandfather and what he accomplished with his own life at a time where knowledge and information was not as accessible as today. If someone can help me with an inquiry about the Medicine Program or any programs, is my high school transcript from Canada valid to apply with and what is the average if there is one to meet the requirements?
    Lastly, here is the link to the Duaa I was repeating on this beautiful morning and please if you can share this Duaa so that Insha’Allah it reaches every Muslim around the world, that would be amazing! الله اكبر ولله الحمد ????


    I pray that who ever is reading this Duaa that reaches you and your family. May Allah continue to bless us and protect us from all evil and unite us all in Jannah! اللهم امييييين يارب ?. Knowledge is truly powerful and Allah crafted this Dunya so beautifully and profound that there is always more and more to learn. And even better when we attain any knowledge that’s not enough, because the truth in that knowledge speaks so loud and makes so much noise, especially in the hands of the real Truth seekers of the world . It is primarily to preserve it. To continue to highlight its beauty and to outline it in BOLD writing, and to shine bright colours on it while sharing with everyone else! Thats ultimately what holds even more power and almost guarantees us to be in his Mercy and in His Strength for aa long as we live in this Dunya. THE purest love we could ever feel or have in this world is ALLAH’s. It’s bound full from any Evil or Deceit or Shaitans, except only what Allah has written for us. Allah will guarantee us success in this Dunya and the Akhira so as long as we relentlessly strive and seek to attain His true word. With the sole purpose and intent to absorb, analyze and actually be a reflection of His love and devotion to the Muslims of the world☺️! سبحان الله

    I know it’s a long message lol but as I am going through this battle with the enemy, I am feeling his love grow stronger and fonder, يا سبحان الله ونعم والشكر له
    Thank you for taking the time to read this message! Stay beautiful souls and stay spreading knowledge and a little gem everywhere you go! Especially, during these 10 days of Dhul’ Hija, until we meet again in جنت الفردوس الاعلى ???.
    اللهم امين
    My best wishes and جزاكم الله الف خير و برمكه و سعاده لا تكمل
    اللهم امييين يا رب العالمين
