Whitethread Institute

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.

Resources and materials to set up and run your own two year (sanatayn) course for women, men and teens

Alhamdulilah, over the last two years, I have managed to do the Jurisprudence, Tafsir and Sibawayh Courses. All the courses have met the objective set out and provided an increases interest to study other Islamic sciences. The Jurisprudence and Tafsir courses have helped me with my confidence in answering peoples questions and knowing where to navigate for legal rulings and the huge range of Tafaasir books. The Sibawayh course has helped polish my Arabic, and in return led to a greater feeling of spiritual upliftment.
Sayidah Hussain
The teachers are super helpful and go above and beyond to support us. Overall my experience has allowed me to really excel in understanding the Arabic language with confidence.
Its natural to be sceptical about anything you buy over the Internet, however by Allah's grace, Whitethread Institute has delivered on all what they promised. The courses are taught by instructors who are very knowledge in their scope of work and have great experience behind them. Rest assured that the madrassah is founded on traditional roots with a modern approach. They successfully embody you, as a student, with the tradition of Islamic sciences, as well as exposure to its application in modern day Britain. I wholeheartedly recommend the Whitethread experience to all those seeking out spiritual and intellectual enlightenment.
