The inspiration of the name Whitethread Institute is taken from verse 2:187 of the Glorious Qur’an.
“And eat and drink until the white thread of dawn becomes distinct to you from the black thread (of night).”
It expresses hope for a new dawn with better days to come and longing for much needed illumination in our daily lives and in our world through our scholars.
What we do
Our aim is that every scholar should become relevant. Every scholar should maximise his or her potential. Every scholar should be able to give something back to the community. We want to help ‘ulama discover their calling, whether it be for leading a community, youth work, providing adult education, teaching the next generation of leaders, or furthering Islamic academic studies.
