Zaytuna College is committed to demonstrating, through practice, teaching, and the free exchange of ideas, Islam's critical role in the modern world. At the heart of our mission is the Islamic legal, intellectual, and spiritual tradition, which we believe to be derived from the Qur'an and the words and deeds of the Prophet Muhammad ﷺ. We believe that this knowledge, distilled by analytical and interpretive tools developed by some of the finest minds in history, has been passed on by successive generations of believers.
Our educational philosophy also reflects our belief that the ability of a student to become part of a living intellectual and spiritual tradition is enhanced by an ongoing involvement with an active community of believers. As our students learn, they are integrated into the life of the surrounding Muslim community. They deliver lectures and sermons; they lead and participate in religious gatherings; they provide counsel, especially for the youth of the community; and they are exposed to the full range of daily trials and triumphs that characterize human society.
It is the sincere prayer of Zaytuna College that by bringing together these many elements, rooted in disparate academic universes, we will be able to produce the future leaders, imams, scholars, and citizens needed to serve a rapidly growing Muslim community and an ever-changing America.
We believe that one of the primary purposes of Islamic education today is to keep that scholarly tradition a
