We are pleased to announce the launch of Al-Tawhid College from Shawwal 1421 (January 2001), if Allah wills. The college will provide courses in traditional Islamic sciences, with emphasis on their contemporary relevance and practical application.
All classes will be held at Masjid al-Tawhid, 80 High Road, Leyton, London E15 (nearest tube: Leyton, Central Line; bus routes 69 & 97).
The courses are free of charge, although donations towards costs are welcome. The classes will be open to all brothers and sisters, but students are asked to register beforehand (by email or post) in order to guarantee a place.
Attendance registers will be kept, and
